    Default Old bottle

    I purchased a bottle of Tom Ford Oud Wood from Neimans the other day and was sent the old version. You know, the one in a brown box, and not the new updated gray box.

    Just wondering, should I send this back? Would this bother you?

    It wouldn't bother me and I wouldn't send it back.

    if it does smell good (isn't spoiled) I don't see a problem. Bottles older than 20 years smell great to this day if they were stored properly. Your bottle is maybe a few months old, there is probably nothing wrong with it. If it does smell bad/off or you want to have the new box because you like it better and you want to display it or whatever, then do return it, otherwise I don't see the point of going through the trouble

    As long as it's the same juice, it wouldn't matter to me.

    I thought people prefer the first version. It's collectible, at least.

    Just shifting old stock is all -- I chuck all the packaging away anyway

    I'd keep it extra hard.
    Assuming it may have been reformulated in the new packaging.

    As others were saying. Typically, older versions are worth more, as perfumes tend to be reformulated for the worse. I think Oud wood has remained the same, so there is probably no difference in the actual juice. But still, I bet most people would still go for the original.
