    Excellent. This is a pretty potent 80s scent. I think it is the first Versace did.

    Longevity: a minimum of 6-8 hours on me, but may well last over 12 hours or almost a day, sillage: good to very strong

    I agree with the others. This is strong stuff. It's like One Man Show on steroids.

    A very, very good scent. I've been using the current formulation for around a year, and recently purchase a 50ml splash of the original version. Have still to get round to make a direct comparison.

    I've never smelled any earlier versions of this frag. I have the current version, and I find it very strong and sharp smelling. It's an aggressive fragrance, not smooth at all. I like it, but it's a little more astringent than I'm comfortable with.

    This is an excerpt of a post here:


    I came across the 90s reformulation of Vl'H this morning and, of course, bought it on the spot. I already own the new version and had posted earlier that i had used all 3 versions but was ignorant about any differences in the versions.

    I got home, put the bottles side by side and the first thing i noted was the significant difference in colour. The juice of the new version is light green while the older version is light brownish-green. Actually, the reverse is the case in the pictures above, maybe due to lighting conditions during photography.

    After noting Bigsly's accurate spot-the-difference re the positioning of the "L'Homme" i looked under the bottles. As expected, different labels, which i will try to reproduce line-by-line below:

    New:
    VERSACE
    L'Homme
    79 degrees (actually symbolised)
    EAU DE TOILETTE
    100ml 3.4fl oz

    Older:
    EAU DE TOILETTE
    100ml 3.3fl oz 81 degrees (symbolised)
    Giver SpA Milano
    USA Distributor Versace Profumi USA Ltd
    (obviously the bottle i bought was for the US market)


    Then came the inevitable side-by-side. A Revelation! Let me just say that accord-for-accord, the new version is true to the older version. However, the new version attains the replication in a manner that is noticeably inferior (in a synthetic-feeling chemical way) to the older version. That may be what is behind the "pungent citrus opening" AnthonyDG referred to in his opening post. There is also an earthy/animalic(?) under-current strong in the older version but totally missing in the new. The labdanum/oakmoss from the base? 50 minutes into wearing, the accords smell the same upon a cursory sniff-by. However, the superiority of the ingredients of the older version remains quite obvious, albeit without any noticeable advantage sillage-wise. Again, same accords, different olfactory "feel". From experience i know the new version has very good longevity and the older one will most likely not be lacking in that regard.

    Edit: Exactly 2 hours into wearing - the older juice is now kicking out some rich spicy/tobacco(?) accords. The new one is just nicely (and i mean nicely) aromatic but with very muted spice and nothing i can mistake/misinterprete as tobacco.

    I have the original rendition and don't recall smelling the newer formulas ( although I may have sample worn them and don't remember). The one I have isn't over the top sillage or longevity. It's just right. Rich, dense and what you'd expect from the era it was released in.

    As a big fan of Versace L'Homme, I've seen my share of reviews and discussions of it. There seems to be three formulations of it and the consensus I've come away with is that none of whatever changes were made has had a significant effect on this juice.
    Any of the three is good and mostly true to the original.

    sillage and longevity are a bit above average, on my skin.

    I had the older version and the new version. they are both excellent. Despite of trying, I could not detect any noticeable difference. The new one indeed contain both oak moss and tree moss. Probably, the best fragrance EVER MADE.
