    Agree. This is all aboüt giant corporations in the perfüme indüstry trying to cüt costs to the maximüm. Civet is very expensive and scarce. Companies süch as LV.. and Procter and Gamble büy müch cheaper synthetics nowadays.

    Is it worth picking up the reformulation?

    Furyo sounds like a great fragrance but I'm not sure if I need to go vintage hunting.

    Simply put: Yes. I just completed a transaction for a sample of what I assume is the reform but I have had the pleasure of smelling the original. It's very heavy, strong and incensey.

    And yet how many BNers say they can't tell the difference between any of the great vintage ones that were reformulated, even the ones that were reformulated to sell in "drug stores?" That must be why they get reformulated !

    i BOUGHT MINE from OUR VERY OWN XMEN BACK IN 2009. TO ME IT SMELLS LIKE A 1980'S INDEPENTLEY OWNED VIDEO STORE, AND INDIAN BAZAARS. I ONCE CONTEMPLATED ON SELLING IT, BUT IVE DEICIDE TO KEEP IT. LOVE THIS STUFF.

    And if you can get original One Man Show cheaply ("Vol." is not on the front bottle label for the vintage version, I think), I suggest you consider it. I need to do more comparing but it seems clearly superior, if not significantly better (the opening in particular seems more "natural").

    So the reformulation smells like incense and original smells like a civet bomb? What are the differences in smell between the original and the reformulation?

    Hm I didn't see much relation between Furyo and OMS.

    Original. It smells of nag champa, honey, musk, and civet. Recommended dose: 1/2 spray.

    Nag Champa in a bottle. But it opens up and the other notes come through. I get a ton of Rose and Patchouli out of this once the opening calms down.
    At my meager age of 21 it makes we wish scents were still made like this. Masculine nowadays is supposed to be 1 Million. Meh.
    So far I am loving Bogart frags.

    I wanted to contribute in respect to this thread. Manicboy mentions a key aspect to distinguishing Vintage from the reformulation - "85% Vol" is on both box and bottle, in between "3.33 FL OZ" and "100 ML". On the back of the Vintage box, the listed ingredients are "ALCOHOL PARFUM EAU" in French and underneath in English, "SD ALCOHOL 39 C - FRAGRANCE - WATER".

    I have a tremendous amount of respect for this wonderful creation from a bygone era. The civet is wonderfully integrated and the Nag Champa incense accord is surreal. It is unlike any other scent. Joint Pour Homme by Roccobarocco is the only one that comes close, and after having them side-by-side, the differences become even more apparent. Nothing against Joint, but Furyo is (for me), on a whole different level.

    The scent pyramid on Basenotes, I believe, is very close to correct:

    Top Notes
    Lavender, Artemisia, Coriander, Bergamot

    Middle Notes
    Jasmine, Geranium, Rose, Cinnamon

    Base Notes
    Civet, Amber, Vetiver, Patchouli

    I find the notes of Nag Champa incense to be a complete accord from the composition. Therefore, I don't think it would be apropos to list "Incense" or Nag Champa as a true 'note'...it is how the harmony comes together and it forms an incredibly rich aroma that is sublime and very, very close to Nag Champa. This is not meant to be a review - only an addition to a thread, and a helpful one.

    I will not pursue reformulated Furyo as I have been truly Blessed to find Vintage juice, in perfect shape! While in a full wearing of Vintage Zino Davidoff, I put one small spray of Furyo on my forearm - and it is mind-blowing. While Zino has its signature dirty rose and patchouli with incense plumes swirling through its composition, Furyo is incredible! I am looking for smoke as it radiates up to my nose!! My scent of the day (rich Original Zino) is a near masterpiece. So...where does that leave Furyo?

    In another dimension, perhaps.

    Cheers.

    I really, really like Zino and consider it an absolute classic. Furyo has far less of those aromatic ingredients you see in the pyramid. There is a slight development as the top notes burn off after 15 minutes, but it's basically linear after that for the next 12+ hours: an accord of very sweet incense, civet, honey, and musk that just goes and goes. Much sweeter and way more incensey than Zino. I don't really get "incense" from Zino, more the classic perfumery ingredients in its pyramid.

    I never really noticed much relation between the two.

    Hi MonkeyBars -

    I like some of what you said here, but I wasn't comparing the two scents. It was just the pure shock (and admiration) of how powerful Furyo is while wearing Original Zino. Sure, they share some notes - but I don't even put them in the same realm of scent.

    Zino is a classic and Original formulation is a near masterpiece. The incense vibe I get in Original Zino comes in the dry down with the vanilla offering a bit of a powdery vibe and blending with the sandalwood and smoky patchouli. It is rather wonderful - truly an accord I get, as there is no incense as a note. Many get it...both trained and untrained noses. The dirty rose in the heart creates the mystery and adds even more dimension to the classic it is.

    Furyo is not as "sweet" to my nose, as others get. Sure, the Nag Champa accord has a certain facet that is sweet, but the composition of Furyo never overdoes that part (or any part, for that matter). It has a wealth of patchouli, amber, civet and vetiver in the base that is incredible with the rose, cinnamon and other florals in the heart. I agree that there is not a lot of movement in the scent after the first hour or so...but, it is how the top notes fade and also blend. It is incredibly rich and that is what I compared - sheer power - to Original Zino. As I said, some notes are similar, but I don't even believe in comparing scents unless they are different formulations of the same fragrance or flankers that share notes and you can understand what the perfumer tried to differentiate and articulate in a bottle next to the flagship...

    This is a whole different world.

    Great contributions here - Furyo is truly, to me, an incredible scent. I put aside comparisons of it to anything, including Kouros. It is unto itself a timeless work of art in Vintage formulation.

    Cheers,

    ericrico

    Another great animalic incense scent is vintage Rumba (make sure it says Balenciaga and not Lapidus on the bottle). This one can still be had for $30 or so on ebay if you are patient, but some sellers are selling the Lapidus with a pic of the Balenciaga so be careful. Totally unisex if you like florals and wait for the top notes to subside.

    Love the sticker, but my Vintage bottles (NIB) don't have them.

    The description is written well - not cheesy, like some Jovan Sex Appeal-type jargon. Wore this amazing juice last night. Nag Champa incense was 'burning' around me ALL night long.

    I love how this can transition (LATE drydown, to Vintage Kouros...or vice versa. Start with Kouros and when it is a light skin scent, just put this over.) Not recommending layering the two when there is anything more than a faint trace.

    Cheers,

    Mine is from the late 80s - got it soon after it came out, but no sticker like in the photos above. Interesting.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.
