    Default Pierre Cardin Cologne

    I realise that the answer to this question is probably In the fragrance directory, but it's still down.

    Does anybody know how the current version of Pierre Cardin Cologne compares to the original? Does it smell the same or has it been tweaked?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    I'd also be interested to hear comments on this one.

    If it is the same one, I used to wear this as my signature scent many, many years ago (35+) - brilliant stuff then..... wonder what I'd feel about it now?

    As far as I remember it does. It's interesting that this has been around for so long yet it seems to have maintained its integrity.

    Is this the same as Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur? I still have a bottle of the vintage - it's pretty amazing considering the price tag. I have not seen the recent ones though. Any pic?

    Had this back in the day. Was a good one back then.

    I loved it. Used to get it from a Pierre Cardin boutique in Bradford.

    I bought a small bottle a couple years ago and as far as I could tell, it was pretty much the same as what I wore in the '80s.

    I tried the new one as a newbie, just a spray when I was in a dept. store, and though the longevity was poor. I suggest having patience and getting vintage on ebay. Look for one made by Tsumura.

    I don't know about the vintage, but I think the current version is excellent although not as strong as I would like. Orlane's Derrick is similar and stronger (and dirt cheap).

    I got a 8oz bottle of this on sale after the holidays at walgreens for like 9 bucks after taxes...It smells fantastic, not sure what original was like, but longevity for me is superb, and I have dry skin which makes most cologne longevity go bye bye. Just found a stick of this deodorant at my local tj maxx this week too only $3 !! I really enjoy having matching deodorants with my scents! Bottom line, yes I think you should add this to your collection, especially as cheap as it is.

    I bought some recently in the local Carrefour hypermarket for only €18, (100ml edt). It's now made by Coty. I'm really glad to say that it has not changed one little bit. Still a sensational "barbershop" feel fragrance and at a great price.
    ......incredible silliage and longetivy !
    I also have Derrick, but personally see no similarities whatsoever.
