    I'd get the vintage and the one in the picture looks like vintage to me

    No, that looks like the latest reissue in the pic, the vintage has a gold cap. Opinions differ but I own vintage, ribbed bottle and the latest incarnation and find the differences fairly negligible. I'd just stick with the latest one TBH.

    P.S: The Extreme is quite different though and worth getting IMO. You have to like tarragon and it doesn't have the tobacco note you find in the standard bottle.

    I believe that is a vintage one, by the gold cap and square bottle.

    I have the one with the gold cap and have tried other more recent releases and I find it hard to distinguish between them. They all seem pretty good to me.

    The vintage is the only one to get (golden cap).

    I like them all too but prefer the vinatage slightly. Great classic fragrance.

    I remmeber the extreme being more intense than the other two.
    But the latest one (regular) is more intense than the previous (regular) one.

    I have a BIZARRE bottle. A real lemon, in a good way. Mine is the new tall bottle and I have tried all except the extreme. I might have got an extreme version that was labeled wrong or something. Mine is so powerful that you can spray it one time and it will permiate the room and then the house. When I wear it out, I wait until it settles down before leaving. I've put it on, went straight to Saks, tried there's, and mine is far stronger. Doesn't really smell any better, just stronger. It's a gem.

    That really is bizarre. Where did you get it? I have the new EDT 100ml and it seems slightly weak. I think somone pointed out in another thread that according to the ingredients label there is now more water in it.

    Still a great fragrance though, and I love the current bottle design - except for the black plastic bits around the cap.

    I bought one of the vintage EDCs off eBay recently and was very disappointed with it. Maybe it had gone off? Has anyone else bought one of these? (They keep upping the price by the way - I got it cheaper). There's also a massive 500ml (slightly used) bottle of the EDC on eBay right now.

    The extreme lacks the tobacco note? That would be a plus to me as I found that note to put me off.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?
