So what did NR used to be?
The NR I've sampled starts out with a blast of cold green, a melon note of sorts that then fades into a cool wet green grass/moss/violet smell. Sadly, yes, the drydown is weak and after 2 or 3 hours the magic of the scent is gone and a faint clean mossy drydown, something akin to Grey Flannel but cooler, is all that's left.
Did I miss out on some power formulation of NR? I've heard many people say it was a frag skewed to the top and mid notes.. so I never would have assumed I had anything but the "original" NR, and never would have assumed it was reformulated.
So what exactly was your original bottle like?
