I'm in No.22 today, vintage EDC. Hugs to everyone!
hehe yes.....the differences are huge....or to say the same as the difference from vintage Shalimar to the new Shalimar plus 30% more
...Shalimar at least retained the same calibre of the gun....lol...the new version is just huuuuge huge huge sillage monster....so synthetic (but not much more then lets say some Amouages nowdays).....i would like this vintage one is monster of that kind, but no its so much more natural, and close to skin scent after 4-5 hours for sure..if there was synthetic sandalwood in this vintage version it doesnt give itself off.....and it makes sense...natural jasmine and natural sandalwood are not loud
i loved the new version but at some point but i got sick....and had to wash it...the drydown i could smell the next day on the clothes it is 5-8 times stronger then vintage! or longer lasting....
tonite something 180 degrees different Tribute
.........hmmmm it is so rich deep tobaco-leather-fruity scent....with base of Homage....and this is loud one! i think i put too much,one big drop
....sillage monster !Evangeline
sooooooooo cute hehe
