    Default Paco Rabanne Pour Homme

    Hello friends,

    Today I found a different looking box packaging of
    Paco rabanne pour homme in the sense that it has
    A label of "Puig France", do all boxes have this label
    Or is this a formulation worth buying,
    I mean you can never have enough of PRPhomme can you ?

    Regards.

    The original, which is really the only one I am familiar with is a wonderful scent IMO.

    Hi.

    Is this exact same version really that bad?

    I'm thinking about getting this one. 2016 bottle. Only around 30 US dollars.

    Is it so bad that it can't be a decent everyday fragrance?

    Yes it is so bad it is not to be worn in any situation. That is not the newest version, second from current but pretty bad.

    Not at all. As an owner of an original bottle from the mid 1980's (which has been stored in the original gift box all it's life) and the current version. I can tell you with personal experience that the current formulation is every bit as good as the original. In fact, the current version has better longevity than the original.

    know a basenoter who likes this version better than vintage.
    I am with Mountainbike on this version. Not worth $30 when vintage can be had for $45 or so.

    Thank you. Interesting.

    My father had an original 80s version of PR PH when I was a young kid. But I don't vividly remember how it smelled.

    Thanks. If I found a vintage PR lying somewhere in an old pharmacy or old fragrance shop, I'd buy it in a snap, especially if the price is under 50 dollars like you said.

    But I havent seen one yet, and I'm not really a fan of buying stuff online, so I'm not gonna buy a vintage bottle on ebay, really.

    This is so crazy, I'm dumbfounded. The new one is soooooo bad. But to each their own! Complete scrubber for me

    The 2010+ version with the big ''PR'' logo on bottle and box is not to be compared in any way with the original 1973-1981 version.
    The vintage is quite a different blend (honey-tobacco-oakmoss etc.) imo compared to the soapy conconction of last 6 years.
    My Top '11' : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Paco Rabanne: pour homme (vtg)
    - Armani: Acqua di Gio Profumo
    - Davidoff: Leather Blend Edp
    - Ferrari: Essence Oud Edp
    - Dior: Fahrenheit (vtg)
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraîcheur)
    - Mancera: Cedrat Boise
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Knize Ten
    - Amouage: Interlude

    I agree! It's absolutely bloody awful. I'd even go so far as to call it a travesty.

    Vintage all the way! It was still a respectable fragrance in to the 90's but now it's just something else unworthy of the name.

    I have to add that it pains me to make such a statement as Pour Homme was my first ever fragrance and is one of the most classic men's scents ever created.

    The vintage is really good, the current one you could add bleach to it and use it to clean the toilet with.lol

    That's more like it finally some others chiming in ha. I don't think one needs to try both, the new version is thst bad but of course if you wanted to try the new it won't cost you much!

    Not that bad .
    If you compare new to vintage then yes new one is toilet cleaner.
    But if you compare new to current stuff on the market like sauvage, reformulated guerlains then you would find new one OK.
    They are two different fragrances imo.
    The price/quality of vintage is way way higher than current
