Thank you for the post, Andre -
Very good knowledge and well-presented. The date on the First Reformulation is later than I thought (1998?) - it has some amazing depth and contains Oakmoss and Tree Moss. Longevity is superb. Interesting that the boxes of the Original Vintage shown are indicative of the year due to the bar-code (1995-96). Amazing how rare Original Vintage has become so quickly. The First Reformulation has been called, "90's formulation", on Basenotes and I continued that. Interesting that it barely made the end of the decade. I do have a follow up thought though. Since the IFRA limitations on Oakmoss started around 2000/2001, it is interesting to note that there may be earlier bottles of the First Reformulation that have higher levels of Oakmoss - who knows!?! There are a lot of other wonderful base notes/fixatives in Versace L'Homme - amber (and labdanum), vanilla, musk, tonka bean (listed as coumarin even on the latest formulation), and there is definitive leather in all bottlings. I also find the patchouli and wood from the late heart in both earlier bottlings to stay for a long time into the base notes.
The latest (Second) Reformulation does not contain either Oakmoss or Tree Moss at all, as I've pointed out.
Great contribution, my friend!
