    No. 88 Vintage by Czech & Speake

    Patchouli 24 Vintage by Le Labo - dark juice before it was recently reformulated. Lots more rubber and smoke.

    Orris by Tauer Perfumes - Discontinued Andy Tauer. I have the smallest sample spary of this a basenoter friend passed on. He always wears it New Years Eve. Since I don't have very much of it, I only wear it once a year on that day until I have no more.

    Soir d'Orient by MPG - This was a limited edition small batch released in Dubai. A few thousand bottles ever existed. I own one with about an ounce left in the bottle.

    Santalum Vintage by Profumum - The dark, oily before it went all soft.

    I've got more than a few vintage/discontinued/HTF ones, so it's really difficult to talk about a few without talking of the others. I really enjoyed wearing Salvador the other day, for example (Dali's second "masculine" scent), but before that I would not have ranked it nearly as high on my favorites list (great handling of the galbanum note). I picked up a bottle of "cheapo" Wild Spice by Coty a couple weeks ago and was so impressed I put London for Men by Burberry on my swap list; l thought WS did a much better job at the same general idea. Then there is vintage Rumba, which is a huge "dirty" incense fragrance; it makes just about all niche look pitiful by contrast (IMO obviously). However, you can still get 100 ml bottles on ebay very reasonably (don't blame me if you get the Lapidus reformulation, though, as some sellers seem to be sneaky about this!).

    That's true vintage Captain Molyneux is unique and a must have for a collector!
