    I don't understand all the commotion over reformulations and whatnot. All of the "reformulations" I've smelt seem pretty much the same as the original to me. That being said, I have a splash bottle of Dolce and Gabanna PH I bought in 2001 that I think I might put on the ebay and turn around and buy a spray version and still make a profit.

    I believe they didn't reformulate it. Smells the same to my nose.

    Supposedly, this one isn't a typical reformulation. It's a relaunch with an intentionally changed scent (they're planning on making a big deal about the change rather than your typical unannounced hope-nobody-notices-the-difference reformulation).

    Have they relaunched it yet?

    Don't it has been reformulated yet again and is a hybrid of light blue and stromboli the tobacco patchouli note is gone! The cap on the new bottle looks so cheap looking that many will think it is a fake.

    How is this 2012 release compared to the newest ('Made in Germany') bottle without the sticker?
    Is it even weaker compared to that one?

    This was certainly re-formulated sometime ago. It is not nearly as strong as it used to be. It continues to smell good but it does not last or project as well as it did prior to the re-formulaton.

    I went to Harrods last week and was pushed this one hard "Have you tried the brand new Dolce and Gabanna fragrance?!". Uhh, well, I think thats pretty old, I had the same one about ten years ago, didn't it come out in the 90's? "Oh, yeah, its a bit redesigned".

    I didn't sniff though, I never cared too much for the original.
    The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel!

    The way fragrances are re-formulated these days, I guess that when you discover a new fragrance that you are sure you love, you must purchase several bottles of it immediately. This way you can be sure that you have a storage of the original juice. I wish I would have done this with Dior Homme Intense.

    I found it to be a very close skin scent ...


    It is how One is in that it is very weak in strength

    Anyone who has a vintage bottle and wants to get rid of it quickly (this frag or most others from early 90s or earlier), sale or swap, please contact me. I will likely take this "old junk" off your hands! LOL. It smells nearly identical to the new stuff, right?

    So this new 2012 release is even worse than the (first) reformulation that lead to the sticker-less 'made in Germany' version as of 2009 while they pretented to go back to the original (sticker version, made in Italy 1994-2008). A shame

    Sounds like a big disappointment, but even with the hype (and optimism)...did any of us think that a current reformulation would capture the depth and beauty of Original Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme with the classic silver label and Made in Italy?

    Great expectations usually lead to false hope...this may be the end of a scent entirely if sales don't jump. A shame.

    I have to agree...D&G PH is not what It use to be. It has been my sig for years...but no more. If D&G wants to destroy a clasic sent...then let them. But they have now lost another customer. The one by D&G Is nothing to brag about as far as projection and longivity go. I love the creamy coconut and tabaco notes but they just dont last long enough to enjoy.

    At this rate D&G will lose my business all together. I guess It's time to change my screen name and avatar.

    I was pretty much convinced that the bottle I bought on Ebay (for £5.50..!) was the original formulation as it smells WONDERFUL and sure enough, when checked out on checkcosmetic.net, it's from December 2003...result!!

    @Derby

    Just to see when it has a sticker on the bottle or not is enough to know if you have the vintage juice made as of 1994-2008 (or 'Made in Italy' written on the bottom as well).
    The 'Dolce &Gabbana embossed in the glass; or 'made in Germany' one, as of 2009-present is the reformulated one.

    Way more about this in detail in other threads on D&G reformulated: eg:

    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/265...ana-Pour-Homme

    where I wrote the following:

    As mentioned in other threads it's simple............

    The one with the sticker on the glass (made in Italy! version) is the vintage one (pre 2008/07) and the one with the good smell with tobacco etc.
    The one with the signature embossed in the glass (after 2007 formulation) is the new almost lemon only frag (and is made in Germany!).

    I have the new formulation already for 2 years and I liked it as a fresh lemony summer scent.
    Now I got hold of the made in Italy sticker version and this is so much better!
    This is not even a summer frag anymore but a full rich lemon/tobacco based fall/winter frag!

    I think both versions layer perfectly and layering makes it a more versatile scent as well!! It also makes the vintage bottle last longer as you have to use less.
    I am happy with both but the sticker version is way way better constructed and worth the money!

    Reformulated yes, but your description tells me what tells the others too - a possible fake.

    To add: I own now three 75 bottles of the vintage sticker version of which all three have different pre-2009 years of manufacturing dates and one 75 ml bottle of current juice where I based my posts/reviews on.

    All three vintage juice bottles smell identical for at least 90%.

    Ah, well, I see now that all (also by myself) has already been said about the different formulations in this thread!!

    Thanks Slayer! The bottle I have is a 75ml one with the silver sticker (or what's left of it!) and not the embossed one. The sticker underneath is very badly worn and I could just make out the batch code - it's not clear where it was made (Germany or Italy) but the smell is very different to the current fragrance in the high street shops. Mine has VERY prominant tobacco leaf & flower and is very rich and lasts 12hrs+. It's a superb fragrance which smells $1m and I cannot believe that D&G have messed with it to such an extent - it's like Chanel mucking up No.5...!!!!

    Yours is made in Italy. Normally written on the sticker on the bottom of the bottle.
    Made in Germany is only as of 2009.
    Yes it's potent for a few hrs and turns into a smooth scent that lingers around you for hours before it fades out.
    The tobacco note/accord makes the vintage so much more masculine indeed!

    Thanks mate! Good to know it's the original Italian one - when the bottle arrived it looked very battered and well worn - it only cost £1.80 plus postage!! - and I thought "uh-oh! - this might be ruined" but I couldn't have been more wrong - it's BOOOOOTIFUL!!!!

    There are a lot of fakes (at least here in NL) sold for 15/20 euros 125ml, but those are all fakes of the embossed bottle ones.
    (they even have a legit number on the bottom sticker!)

    Somewhere here is a thread showing a bottle like that.
    Anyway, the smell immediately reveals that it's Chinese cat-piss as I read lol!

    Ok, I see!
    Besides that the cap of the version as of 2009 (reformulation, made in Germany) is completely different and doesn't even fit on the vintage bottle! The first number of the batchnumber on the sticker on bottom of bottle is the year of release!
    Mines are 2003, 2005 and 2008. I also own a reformulated one (good for layering with vintage).

    This has definitley been reformulated. The older stuff.. even in like 2004, used to have a strong tobacco and lemon vibe; while the current stuff is so watered down, it even smelled like they watered it down with a cheap lavender note when I smelled it at Sephora the other day. I will have to do a full wearing of the current stuff.

    Okay, I've had a chance to try the original (a really old mini) and the new (Made in Germany and it also says Geneva; it's got the blue and chrome cap and the letters printed directly onto the glass). The original has strong citrus and tobacco notes, with obvious lavender as well. I really like the smell but I find wearing it to be a bit irritating. The notes just keep coming at me. The Made in Germany one seems to have the same notes (I smelled it up close as well as from a few feet away), but it's a bit weaker and considerably smoother. It might be wearable for me, unlike the original. It smells natural and well balanced, but I've just done a dab sampling with it so I'll have to wear it normally and report back, but I definitely don't get "lemon pledge" from either one. I guess I agree with ericrico's assessment, though he's written so much on this thread I may have missed something. LOL.
