    Well, yes. The vintage (90ml) one is richer, more resinous, stronger, and longer lasting. However, if you can't track down a 90 ml bottle, the current one is still an excellent fragrance and well worth a purchase if you like that genre of fragrance. (I definitely do.)

    The current 100ml version gave a Customs Inspector at Shanghai Airport whiplash when he recoiled in terror from leaning in to sniff my suspicious looking decant. Not to be trifled with. The older one must be big fun
