    1993 to Current. Regardless of the reformulations, increasing synthetic ingredients and the like, I still prefer the modern day scents.

    There are some true gems in the pre-1992 era, however overall - I prefer 1993 and newer releases. I've gone through the "80's powerhouse" stage and got over it by now. Not to mention, trying to find anything really that old and still in good condition is becoming increasingly difficult (and expensive).

    Is this a joke, Dimitrios? It's like comparing the Mona Lisa to something an elephant or monkey painted! LOL.

    Modern here. I respect the oldies, but to me the best stuff is newer. I'm not saying that we're not losing some great stuff to regulations, but all things being the same, I just like newer styles.

    3. Dior - Vetiver

    Ideally a healthy combination of the two though the greater part of my wardrobe leans towards the modern so I guess the vote should go there.

    Mostly vintage, but with some outliers from the more recent period.
