I have a good sized sample of it and have now worn it a few times. Interesting story, but I don't know or care if it's true. Honestly, the fragrance itself is very nice IMO. Sort of expensive, but very nice - and good longevity. Will be adding a full bottle to my collection this summer.

Also, I have noticed TPC has been a little quicker - usually been shipping within just a few business days from order. For a while there, it was more like 10 days.
