    Default Aramis (vintage) / Paco Rabanne Pour Homme (vintage) ?

    Been up to add those to my collection. Or one or another.... Any thoughts about these? Which one you prefer? I'm a bit more fan of Paco.

    I enjoy both, but I'd prefer Paco, simply because this one, while still masculine, is a tad more versatile and fresher.

    The vintage of the first is horrible IMO. The vintage of the second is wonderful.

    I have never smelled the vintage formulation of either, so I'm really curious to hear your impressions. Both are still very good in their current formulation. I'm assuming you'd get more oakmoss in Aramis (which has already plenty of musks and animalics) and more animalics in the Paco Rabanne. I'd go for the full power of the musky, leathery Aramis.
