Many Caron lovers have complained about reformulations, N_Tesla. I can't imagine Nuit de Noel escaped. I tried the vintage parfum of Nuit de Noel recently and fell in love with it. I don't know the current version, but I should try it just to see. Sometimes I think people carry on so over reformulations. I suppose if you knew the original it can be heartbreaking, but there are plenty of fragrances that have been reformulated and smell just fine...if you have no expectations. When they reformulate our old loves we either have to say goodbye or hunt out intact vintage bottles. Hunt for lost treasures.
