I'll throw you shipping costs to send it to me for free if you don't want it. Is this the re-issued bottle? The re-issue, while close to the original, was definitely reformulated, and has way too much lavender and far less of the piney-wood smell that the original has. Fortunately, I still have about half of an old 1.7 oz bottle remaining in fairly good condition. I haven't bought the new one, but tested it in store a few times, and the differences are noticeable.
That said, the company has bastardized Fierce over the years compared to its original form. I was recently at my house in CT where I found some old almost empty bottles of Fierce I bought way back when it was first released in 2002 that I had put back in their original box, and the juice was still good. It was far more spicy and interesting, and not the citrus mess that it is now. You couldn't pay me to take a bottle of the new stuff, it's junk. Plus $70+ for cologne spray is a joke.
