This can be a complete disaster on the wrong person. You won't be able to squeak by until you wash it off.

    Lui carries itself in a proper manner while still being loud and attracting attention. PS is just as loud but a cheaper variation.

    If you can't find one you might want to try the other. Maybe that will work for you.

    I am tempted to try this again but this time using a lot less than what I did in the store.
    Agreed. I think the trick with this one is to go very easy on the trigger, and have the patience to wait for the dry-down. Attire: Iron white shirt is minimum requirement.

    Well, we have all different wiew on how a scent will "fit in" the best way. IMO Pour Lui require a certain style and class from the user.

    I agree and the current version (own vintage and a 6 years old recent formulation) is imo still very potent and lasts even longer than the vintage which smells richer.
    This stuff has probably been reformulated again somewhere last 4 years. It would not surpise me as Oscar for men has been reformulated as well 2 years ago (little package change and made in Usa instead of France and less potent!).

    Don't know the year but I would think a few times in 36 years.

    A guess: end of the 80's, then 2001 and probably a few years ago again (2013).

    I was in an outlet store last week and I saw Pour Lui sitting on the shelf. Out of curiosity I picked it up and looked at the ingredient list. Unlike the one I bought in 2014, this one did not list oakmoss. I couldn't smell it, so I don't know how much it has changed, but it's something to keep in mind.

    Did I get that right that the star on top of the cap indicates the older version of ODLRPL - and the absence of the star is a mark of newer release?
