    Haven't tried the Mythique release, but have worn the vintage release intermitantly for years. The longevity has always been excellent and the sillage is not strong but adequate. This is a superb fragrance.

    Is Mythique edition true to its vintage perfume scent? Or different?

    Neal, my answer is a bit wimpy, but it's ultimately in agreement with the good noses above on this thread. Good longevity and sillage.

    The problem is at first when you get it and wear it the first few times it seems like it's not there after a couple of hours. The more times you wear it though, you truly pick it up later and later in the day as you "learn" it. Lastly, you'll find when you do your laundry that the shirt you wore with Monsieur earlier in the week still carries it beautifully.
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

    I currently have the Les Mythiques version but have used MdG since 1980. The LM version is quite true to the original. Of course there will be reformulation variations, but whatever there is i cannot say i detect.

    Longevity has always been okay and sillage more like close to the skin, but always there.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    That's exactly what I have noticed, although I don't find it hangs around on my skin as long.

    I find the new(er) release to last a bit better than the previous version. It's no monster in either category (sillage/longevity) but smells so good it's still among my favorites.

    Cool ... I have a full 100ml bottle of 1990'ish MdG, and the longevity is close to zero ... I think!
