    Default Old and new Grain de Plaisir (MPG)?

    Has anyone tried both the old, 90ml/3oz and the new, 100ml/3.3oz versions of Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier's Grain de Plaisir?

    I left it too late to acquire Baime, by which time only the latter was available, and I was disappointed when I compared it with the sample I had of the original. I don't want to repeat the experience with Grain de Plaisir.

    I own the former but have tried the more recent and personally don't notice any difference.

    I tried the new version w/in the last 24 hours & found the basenotes 2b nonexistent..
    On Sillage:

    If someone can smell me at more than an arm's length away, I'm probably wearing too much of whatever I applied; if she can distinctly make out the top notes, then perhaps I left the house a bit too soon..

    On icebreaker:

    I tend to compliment people on their frags to make short talks rather than anything more meaningful.

    ¿Si o No?

    Not much difference. More real woods and real "hairy" Castoreum in the older 90ml batches.

    Such a great fragrance, and a great line. If anyone wants to smell historical compositions of quality on par or greater than the grey cap creeds, MPG is the line. So french, so natural, so grand.
