I don't know about the vintage version, but I have the Mythical version and don't find the civet to be all that prominent. I get a lot of lemon and lavender. I do detect the presence of a civet note, but I only notice the effect of the roundness it imparts.
Arghh. The thing about this scent is that it's like Jicky without the vanilla. Sometimes that's a good thing, but now I'm just craving Jicky.
