    Post Montana Parfum d'Homme

    a little scent shop has six forgotten bottles of this discontinued gem, guess I''ll have to raid them!
    other lovers, any?

    Bravo Francolino, if it's the discontinued red box "made in France" then it's a terrific scent! Luckily it can still be found for decent prices.
    My current top five:

    Tiffany - Tiffany for Men (vtg)
    Yves Saint Laurent - M7 (vtg)
    Fendi - Theorema
    Tom Ford - Tobacco Vanille
    Gucci - Gucci pour Homme

    Yes, there is -- I have a "Red Box" made in Italy. It too smells superb and was a paltry $15 for a 125ml bottle.

    It's good stuff but the one bottle I own is sufficient, I think.

    I have both versions. I purchased a couple of boxed bottles of the Italian re-issue about 5 years ago. Then I located 3 each of the 75 ml boxes of the French in a local mom-and-pop pharmacy a couple of years ago. To my nose there is no discernible difference between the two although the French version seems to have a longer sillage. I also picked up a couple of 75 ml bottles of 'Montana Parfum d'Homme Light' version. Very good also but a tad less forward. Slightly more towards what I imagine a cologne than an edt. All three are outstanding fragrances!
