The new Newport is entirely different from the vintage one. I had the chance to try the vintage but it totally put me off. I just did not like it.
The new Newport, like what its blue bottle suggests is a marine/aquatic scent. Its not spectacular and maybe it won't sweep you off your feet. But its a very well crafted scent, fresh, smells very nice and the notes are balanced. It has a good transition from top notes until the base. I haven't tried this enough to give a detailed description about its notes but currently it belongs to my wish list.
