    Question Miss Balmain - old vs new - advice, please?

    Dearest Base-ists (and I'm a bassist ,

    So, I got a decant of vintage MB parfum from TPC, and love it, especially that fond du ashtray bit of dirt that lifts it out of nice girl territory.

    My 1st question is, how faithful are recent formulations? Vintage is expensive, esp unopened, moreso NIB, which leads to 2nd Q: should I consider any vintage that has been used?

    merci, grazie, תודה רבה

    Yes please consider the older version, better NIB, although the one that had previously been opened and used might be still good. Buying used is always taking chances, nobody will be able to tell its storage conditions.
