    Default Aramis Spray eau de Cologne

    Hi!

    I'm running out of Aramis and wanting to buy another.

    I saw a this Aramis Spray eau de Cologne (old formula? - refer to link below) and it hasn't been used. Is it worth buying this or spend few extra bux and buy the current Aramis edt?

    I would just buy the 'new' edt Aramis Classic as the smell (formula) hardly changed throughout the decades, if ever, you are sure the quality is good and it's cheaper.

    That's the issue when buying a second-hand old formula where the juice has probably changed due to exposure to sun,heat...etc.. I made the mistake of buying paco rabanne- Tenere and the juice was clearly off. Maybe I should not repeat the same mistake lol

    Any idea what year this old Aramis formula was made?

    Looks like a bottle from the 60's to me but others for sure can tell you more about the age of this bottle.

    My dad always had Aramis and I can recall the bottles he had in the 70's were the same (or almost the same) as they still sell nowadays (that's why I think your link shows a 60's bottle), only then they did not have sprayers yet and the bottle was a splash version. But again, the juice has hardly been altered, if not at all! Good luck!

    The bottle is glass covered with a film of rubber, if i recall rightly. Since it is a spray bottle there is minimised risk of oxidation of the juice, and the opaque rubber would have protected the juice from light a bit.

    Personally, i would buy the bottle without hesitation.

    You are correct. I just bought one of these, and it's just as you say. Mine was used with 90-95% remaining. It's pretty sealed up in there, as the rubber coating is opaque. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it either.

    I decided not to buy any second-hand fragrances online as recently had a one hell of an experience with a discontinued product. Yesterday i've tested the current Aramis in a local mall and I see no issues in terms of smell or longevity so will buy a brand new bottle this weekend. Thanks all for helping me reach a final and happy decision

    perfaddict: You've already mentioned on one of my threads that Swiss made Aramis is all good. From what I've tested yesterday you're absolutely right.
