I have it too - it's probably my favorite vintage - as well as the older EdT and EdC going back to the 60s. There is a comparison. The modern is not as good, but there are times that I prefer its sleeker, cleaner feel to the richer vintage juice. The EdP and extrait are also worthwhile variations in my opinion.

Another thought: vintage sealed disc bottles of EdC are all over ebay and not outrageously priced. Thoughts?
This stuff is fantastic. If you have problems with longevity, this probably won't last long on you, but the scent is beautiful. It's a bargain most of the time. Only buy bottles that are sealed and that have been stored in box, though. I've had bad luck with unboxed ones.
