I could not agree more. I love the original, like sport, loved blue, can tolerate black, but detest double black. I own them all, but I have worn double black twice. It seems sickly sweet with an overdose of acetone on my skin.
I do, however, recommend modern reserve for spring/summer. Blue will obviously work well in the summer, but modern reserve would hold up well in any season. I think it has a very good blend of lighthearted depth.
