    The 1.6/1.7 oz spray....the one that came in the blue bag, so NOT the reformulation. Less than $60 including shipping.

    I am one happy fella!

    Congrats! So the one in the black plastic rectangular shaped bottle came after the blue bottle version?

    Thanks! I even love the reformulation. t's not like it lost oak moss or something. To me it's 99% the same, but now I will have a comparison. SOOOOOO stoked! Scent is most closely associated to memory of all the senses. This will bring back many memories.

    Whoa, if THAT'S the one you scored then it IS vintage!!! I mean, really.....when I bought my first bottle in 1988 they stopped using the "Crown Royal" bag in the packaging. NICE!!!!

    I buy fragrances that match my personality. I want to smell like I'll whisk you away with me on a weekend retreat to engage in an exciting adventure in parts unknown.

    Yes, a very dark navy blue. And the script is silver. A very '80's loo, for sure.
