Okay, second wearing of the original formulation. I'm surprised that it's definitely not any stronger than the latest formulation, and that while it seems to be the same scent, the notes are articulated better in the original one (as I said in the first post). I'll just add that I also noticed a similar construction in Cuba Green Jeans, though I don't know if this is a copy of any particular frag. In both of these, the notes seem to be squeezed together, but the smell the "natural" and pleasant. In this kind of construction, which I'm guessing is cheaper to do, there is a bluntness to it. It's the opposite of "transparency." The sillage is not very strong in the original Pour Lui that I have, but that may be due to how it was stored over the years. I would say that they are different enough (at least to the aficionado) that it may be a good idea to have both, if you like the smell of course.
