It really shouldn't affect you much if PE has been reformulated (which it has). You can smell it for the first time and decide whether you like it without any bias. Just take it or leave it for what it is. I bought M7 (reformulated) knowing that it was different from the original which was the only one I'd sniffed. Did it bother me that there were a few distinguishable differences? Only after I'd worn it long enough to notice the differences and even then it didn't bother me. I decided to rate the fragrance based on what it is and not what it was.
Unfortunately, all fragrances that last 5-10yrs on the market will experience a reformulation. Subtly at first, but soon the reformulation will bear noticeable differences from original. My advice: just enjoy it while you can knowing that it won't last forever. Its like dating a hot girl who you know isn't wifey material. You enjoy the company and all the stares you receive from onlookers, but ultimately you know you'll have to find more permanent commitment elsewhere....
To add to the list, D&G Pour Homme has most definitely, and most unfortunately, been reformulated. Still good as far as fragrances go, but boy do these designer houses know how to neuter a classic...(shakes his head in disapproval).
