    IMO, the easiest way is to look for the collectors editions as these had a specific year (Armure = 2005, Kilt = 2006 etc. There is a thread detailing each limited edition release somewhere here) of release.

    There is a theory that the newer bottles are more blue (with older ones being more green in colour) and the stripes of one finish higher on the 'neck' than the other, but I am not sure which way round this is.
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Mamluk
    2) Chypre Palatin
    3) Interlude Man
    4) Kouros (Vintage)
    5) Tobacco Vanille
    6) 34 Boulevard Saint Germain
    7) APOM Pour Homme
    8) Psychedelique [interchangeable with] Coromandel
    9) More than Words
    10) Millesime 1849

    It has wrinkles...

    Yeah, bad joke.

    There is a site that reads the batch code on the box and tells you which was the manufacturing date of that particular piece. I can't recall its name. You can search it through the key words "batch" "code" "cosmetics".

    I got a pre 2010 collector le male and after tested I confirm the top le male is the old potent le male.

    That's really cool packaging. Never saw that before.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Does anyone know if the limited edition flask has ok juice? Looking for a bottle for a gift that is not watered down like the current version. This is all I can find at the moment.

    The original Le Male came in a bottle without stripes, I remember seeing it at Macy's (Burdine's at that time) back in 95. Not to be confused with the aftershave which comes in a clear blue bottle, the original came in a frosted blue bottle, but no stripes. Very very hard to find, in fact I have only seen a couple on Ebay over the years. That is my only way of knowing when a Le Male is an original vintage or not. Aside from that, I don't know when other reformulations occurred, but I'm sure it was reformulated at least a couple times, as it is now almost 20 years old.

    So did you confirm the packaging pictured in this thread is in fact an older bottle?
