    You have got to be kidding me? Mania is already on the lighter side and no need for a summer version. Mania wears perfectly well in the summer without the addition of a summer version to make people go out a buy a new product. Who knows, maybe it is fabulous. Someone will need to do a review.

    The bottle sure looks great. I can´t really diss the original Mania either, quite compelling citrus/saffron thing going on there, albeit terribly weak. Who knows, maybe this will be a return to form after the atrocious City Glam...

    I forgot all about city glam. I never got to try it and it never came to any of the stores I frequent. I hated the poivre line as well.

    I love Mania Man, I bought it as soon as it came out I think in 2002? I used it for 3 years and bought a new bottle. You know what? I think or I'm pretty sure my old bottle( I still have about a little less than a quarter left) is much much stronger than the new bottle, I was soo mad when I discovered that the new 2006 bottle that I bought smelt so watered down! The old bottle was full bodied and deeper. Huh! Mania is my fave and why do they have to do this? So mad!!!!

    Default Translate from German?

    I copied the text from the site, and the translation through babel fish. Can anyone translate the original text from German to English? Babel fish didn't recognize a few of the words.

    I have to wonder, too, as I got a tester before the stuff launched in the stores, and I'm totally miffed everytime somebody here says it's weak. On the contrary, I find my tester to be pretty potent stuff.

    Me too, when I read the reviews on basenotes I didn't get it, and I bought a new bottle, and yes it does smell weak, alcoholy, and watered down. To me, it smelled faintly of the original Giorgio Armani Pour Homme(green juice), ahh, so mad!

    My first bottle was potent and smelled great. My second was so weak that I got rid of it because I was so madd! I will have to try another bottle to be sure. At any rate, just get some GIT and you will have it better. I kinda think maina is in the same family as GIT with the ambergris.

    If I love original Mania (I own vintage first year of production bottle), then is it worth getting this flanker? What's your take on it gentlemen

    It's ok, maintaining the same DNA but fresher with more citrus on top and less wood. I've always had fairly good longevity and projection with the vintage original bottle I own, but seeing how this is a lighter/summer affair, expect it to not be quite as good in either of those departments (and perhaps not as complex, either).

    Much lighter and fresher . My experience with this one is that it was above average for a summer flanker.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.
