i recently posted a thread about acquiring a belljar of chergui (that we found out was from 2004). when we say "current" and "vintage" chergui it's important to note there are actually 3 separate cherguis. take it from someone who has pretty much bathed in the stuff for the last 3.5 years. original chergui actually has the noticeable hay warmed by honey. reformulated (when the juice was purposely turned green, and then back to brown - shiseido pillar label) is a respectable reformulation and absolutely worth tracking down. new chergui, with SL logo label and ruby color juice is garbage. sold my bottle on eBay. thin, frail, empty, a sad attempt. i think if you're new to chergui you may enjoy the new one since you wont know what you're missing, but if you've smelled the earlier versions it's real hard to make nice with the current formulation. i have a feeling a lot of lutens have undergone reformulations lately. its well known arabie has undergone one recently as well.
