    Default What version (reformulation) is this Paco Rabanne Pour Homme?

    I am looking to buy a PRPH and have read that older versions had much more oakmoss and were better than the current reformulation.

    Would this bottle be an older, better version or is it the same I can buy in any store?

    That is a relatively recent incarnation.

    Thanks!

    Is it any different from the current version? Do you like it better than the current one?

    The current formulation (2nd bottle) is greener than the vintage one (the first bottle). I like both of them.

    I tried this a few weeks ago in Mexico (french version). It starts off great but withers away to a soft fresh scent reminiscent of the reformulated One Man Show.

    Not a bad "fresh" scent but there are better green scents to choose from IMO.

    I can do half ounce decants of the first formulation, for those who have interest in swapping. Top notes seem rather flat but drydown is really nice. I didn't try it at the time so I don't know what the original top note were like.
