    Default Yesterday and Today: CAPUCCI pour Homme (from 1967)

    CAPUCCI pour Homme (1977 Vs 2012)





    One of the best, yet underrated fragrances for Men, since 1967.
    One of the best examples of "drastic reformulations" without ruining too much the scent.
    One of the cheapest frags ever, and still the best quality/price ratio.

    The Modern Capucci is quite different from the Vintage one, but both version are REALLY pleasant.

    VINTAGE CAPUCCI: Some lemon in an ocean of marvelous Oakmoss, Musk, and Leather.
    MODERN CAPUCCI: The Triumph of Citruses in every vibrations, with an infinite longevity.


    Top notes:
    bergamot, amalfi lemon, lime, basil and anise;
    Middle notes:
    lavender, cyclamen, fruity notes, jasmine;
    Base notes
    musk, patchouli, oakmoss, amber, incense, tobacco and leather.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BOTH VERSIONS try to find both!


    1977


    2012




    Pictures of Modern (All Lemon) box and bottle





    NOTE in the Modern bottle, "CAPUCCI" is embossed in the glass, not printed.


    On the bottom: "Roberto Capucci Parfums" (vintage is DIFFERENT)


    NOTE the embossed cap in modern bottle (Vintage cap is smooth)





    Pictures of the VINTAGE (Musk Leather Oakmoss) box and bottle





    On the Bottom: "CAPUCCI PARIS FRANCE"


    NOTE the Smooth cap without RC lettering


    Lettering is NOT embossed, but printed, on the vintage bottles




    Confrontation between bottles: the modern one has DARKER and BIGGER cap


    VINTAGE juice is MORE INTENSE than Modern one.

    love the vintage..reformulation is watered down and plastic and really an ultra cheapo...IMO!

    OP's similar threads are really useful resources for true lovers and seekers of the classics. Knowledge of the differences in the details highlighted above is very useful when confronted with bottles "in the flesh". Thanks for the education.

    Agree, Weruska unfortunately sucks as a frag maker.
    bzw: let's not forget the brilliant R de Capucci, masterpeice of the 1980s

    Totally agree with perfaddict and Marais - excellent threads and great photos! Thanks for taking the time to post these. I have the modern Capucci (bought whilst visiting the island of Capri) and it will forever have associations of this beautiful place. I love its mediterranean vibrancy and sunny optimism - a happy scent for me.

    More of these excellent insights into the classics please...!

    Andre, I really appreciate the contribution you make to the forum !

    I have wondered about a blind buy with Capucci. I remember Hirsh Duckfinder singing its praises a few years back. I may go for a vintage if I can find it. Thanks for sharing
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    UPDATE:
    here is a bottle from the Nineties: during the '90 the bottles had the RC logo embossed on the glass









    THE STICKER IS DIFFERENT, TOO.

    UPDATE
    Here is a rare "atomizer" (not natural spray) , second half of Seventies. In those years (before 1980), sprays were rarely used.
