    Maybe the reissue could be different but good anyway...

    Lol@ this thread. Hate to be a "troll", but man...perhaps my relatively inexperienced nose (at the time) couldn't quite appreciate the complexity and quality of this fragrance when I first tried the Patous years ago, but I definitely was rather unimpressed by them. I was rather surprised that this understated, unimpressive, older gentleman aftershave lotion smelling fragrance was so revered by so many.
    This fragrance is definitely not for me.

    It is not aftershave smelling, at least not to my nose. It is a very complex fragrance, very masculine, formal, warm, green in the beginning, with delicious smoking/burning notes in the middle, woody, with creamy sandalwood in the end.

    I for one can't wait to try it, in any of its permutations. I have never tried the vintage, and maybe if this new one is any good, I'll just keep it that way.

    I prefer to measure reformulations by how much pleasure they give me in the moment, not how much better or worse they are than previous iterations.

    I mean, if the current Derby is as good as it is (to give an example), I see no reason why the nose / noses couldn't do something just as good for this one if they really did make their very best effort.

    I have a 1.5ml sample of the 2011 reconstruction, as well as a 5ml decant of the vintage. I haven't compared them yet, as I decided to let the reconstructed sample age a bit. I'll have to test them side-by-side within the next couple of weeks...

    Mine was acquired from a generous UK Basenoter, who managed to get some of the 2011 juice from Jean Kerleo himself.

    I got my vintage Patou (2 mini bottles) from Ebay Deutschland. Ebay.de. I paid very little and the bottles are original.

    Didn't care for the vintage much, nice but just smelled..... old. I dunno like some of the older ones I have, good stuff but rarely anything I would wear and not very interesting.

    Maybe the new one will be.... newer.

    Thanks for this - encouraging, all things considered. I picked up a 60ml vintage a few years back and some minis and I can imagine it would be hard to reproduce the same depth these days, but if Mr. Kerleo is involved then we should at least get close as long the new owners don't screw with it - i.e. "updated for the current market" - or scrimp on budget.

    If they are re-releasing PH I wonder if Prive has a shot as well?

    Apologies for the tangent, but regarding this view of Guerlain's improved batches, when did this start? That is, if I am interested to get a good batch wth the current 'safer' oakmoss option, how do I find it?

    does anyone know when, where and whom will carry PPH?

    really looking forward to this

    I hope it's better than the sample I got from TPC.

    Of the original version? If you didn't like that one, why even bother with a reissue? That's like ordering apple pie and whishing it won't have apples in it. Makes no sense to me.

    Because I wonder if the sample was past its best, given the rave reviews PPH gets. It may be worth trying some 'fresh' juice.

    I see. But don't hold your breath because I doubt TPC would sell spoiled PPH (which I have never came across a spoiled one so far) and also because a reissued version has a high chance of failure.

    I think PPH is actually one of the best masculines in existence but a hype like that blows expectations out of proportions.

    Promising news really keep coming up now. Very nice!

    From the fragrantica-article:
    Then, at the end of May 2013 we're going to relaunch three other perfumes—Jean Patou pour homme, Eau de Patou and Chaldée will be on the market again. The bottles will be of the same simple design that recalls Ma Collection Jean Patou. The first salespoint will be here, in our flagship boutique at 5, rue de Castiglione, and then these perfumes will be presented in a very limited number of selected department stores worldwide. Like Bergdorf Goodman in the USA, maybe Harrods in London, and we are going to choose places in Dubai and Russia.

    Thanks for that sables.

    On my browser, the "e-boutique" button is not working - is Patou Pour Homme available for sale now ?

  25. #55

    Default Re: Patou Pour Homme to be reissued?

    See my post above. It will be released by the end of the month but only in their own boutique and a handful of selcted higher end department stores worldwide.

    e-boutique isn't working for me either, I guess it's "under construction".

    Wow, this is excellent news indeed. Can't wait to see if the new formulation of PPH smells the same as the original.
    Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?
