8) I too, love 'Y.' I am not familiar with the Malle fragrance that you mention; 'niche' fragrances hold few charms for me. I always found 'Y' edp to be similar to Givenchy III, edp. The 'Y' Parfum is not discontinued, so far as I know . . . and yes, it's a different experience from the other strengths, that 'Y' inhabits. I have found this to be true of many parfum strengths. They smell soooooooo much fuller and deeper and altogether different, from their weaker siblings.
