    I really like this fragrance and glad the price has dropped and it will be readily available.

    Having been one of the original buyers, I am more than a bit irritated by this. Shadey practice indeed.

    Supposedly the first batch was a higher concentration than an EdP.

    Mike I read in graindemusc that the original 1697, which I have, has around 14% concentration. Denise went to say she smelt the original 10% concentration (I believe) and it was much airier and better than the one released. Personally I love the bottle I have, but I find the sillage to be extremely weak. It does last a long time though. Let's hope the new concentration let's it "breathe".

    I like Frapin Caravelle Epicee, Terre du Serment, and Serge Lutens Chène. Do you think I will like 1697?

    IMO. The only vibe that is evident here and not in those above is "cognac" - sniff first!

    I see it is now up to $180 at MiN, but $155 at Luckyscent.
