Maybe this one is subject to batch variation?
I get a lot of similarity to the original Giorgio too so I can't follow those who like Giorgio but hate Red.
I'm sorry. I've never been a "basher" of fragrances on here but I have to strongly disagree with both of you....sadly. They aren't even close to the same scent. When I wore this in the old days I felt like I could do anything. It was perfect for Winter and Fall. Whatever they put in the bottle I smelled today was horse crap.
There is NOTHING mental about it. I still have the old scent in my head. I still have Polo, Kouros...all those scents branded into my brain and they all smell the same to me now.....except this by a longshot.
The bad part is that this was one I would have stocked up on. While trying other scents the fecal smell so overwhelmed the side of my hand it hit I had to stop. It was sad. No wonder the original juice was fetching such high prices.
