    Default Any difference in the 'old' and 'new' bottles of Iris Bleu Gris by MPG?

    I have only smelled Iris Bleu Gris from a tester in the old bottle style (red glass, 90 ml). Has anyone smelled this and the newer bottles (orange rounded glass 100 ml) and can you comment whether they smelled the same?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Hi Mike,
    Yep - there seems to be a difference between old and new... with several of the MPG frags:

    The newer version of IBG seems to go sour on my skin compared to the original..., though the top notes and middle seem about the same.

    So Schachman which do you prefer? I've smelled only the older one and it goes on nearly bitter but warms over a period of hours on my skin.

    Mike,
    the 100ml is the new mpg.
    the 90ml bottles are the old formula's.

    Don't get me tripping over this one too. I freaked out over RdV reformulation. Fortuanately it got me a 75% full vintage tester bottle for free.

    Reformulation is NEVER a good thing. I have it in the red bottle & it is divine. I got it from an online shop, cheap too. I wouldn't get the reform if I had a choice.

    I didn't notice any difference when I re-smelled it at Bendels recently...maybe they had an old tester bottle as well?

    For me, the dry-down on the new version went a little off on me, so while I still like it, I preferred the original. I can't say there is a huge difference, but perhaps they changed one product and that made a difference. I have to admit, I wore it rarely... though I kept the bottle, and will revisit it a little later.

    Here's a fairly recent thread on Parfum d'Habit.
