    Default Jacomo de Jacomo

    Dear friends,

    Jacomo de Jacomo used to be my signature scent in the 80ies.. Bought it again some time ago and it did not smell the same as I remembered..

    I placed it on Facebook and got an answer from Jacomo that it had never been reformulated... Personally, I have difficulties to believe that..

    Opinions ?

    Thanks :-)

    I don't know about reformulation, but I have my bottle of Rouge, bought this yea,r and I love it (infact it's my SOTD today)

    I love JdJ and have worn this scent for over 30 years. I own two vintage bottles and the current formulation.
    Jacomo has been reformulated, for sure! The recent juice is lighter, thinner, sharper... and the real "sweet-green" oakmoss base is missing.

    Renzo you are right. All fragrances including the powerhouse ones from the 80s have been reformulated. Both to meet regulations and current market tastes. JdJ smells different to me too. This is a potent composition of spices that could not be done these days.

    I knew it, Renaissance, but the quite strong reaction of Jacomo saying otherwise made me doubt..

    I obtained a sample in 2008, and thought it had too much clove and lavender. Several months ago I obtained a bottle of the original formulation and thought it was balanced much better. I don't know what version that sample was.
