    Default Reflection man vintage vs new versions performance?

    Does anyone have then both, and have them compared side by side? how are the performance? it does projects like beast but only 2/3 hours later it becomes almost skin scent, is this normal for this fragrance?

    Also the longevity sims not very good i get like 6-7h which is not bad, but far from my other fragrances, thanks - please vote and based the vote if you had them both, don't just hate on reformulations and vote blindly.

    I only have the reformulation. But I can say that I am quite happy with the performance especially considering how cheap you can get the new stuff.

    What about the voting option for "they're both the same?"

    Have only tried what's out there now and it seems to perform fine on my skin.

    Because most stubborn brainwashed people online don't want to hear that. They kind of want to believe reformulations destroy scents and justify to buy a "VINTAGE" bottle. But here he might just haven't thought about that

    Like old people in electronics don't want to hear that Sony or Toshiba is no longer at the top and to go with a product like Samsung. They want to be told to stay in their old slippers as change scares them.

    (And PS: I didn't say old people in a negative way as we'll all mostly get old one day and also used them as an example cause my past long experience as a salesman showed me that this phenomenon gets more and more accurate as we get older...At least with the current generations. We'll see if ours and the next ones will change as they'll be much more up to date on change in products with internet and all the media)

    I am wearing it today - the modern version. The performance is ok compared to other amouages that I own but not great!

    Projection is BEAST mode first 3h then its close to skin......i dont know is this is what all are getting, i never cared for the vintage vs reformulation stuff, cause i think its taken out of proportion, but i was just wondering if this is what all owners are getting generally or?

    Cause even La Nuit (while not projecting so strong) is much easier to detect after 6h+ then Reflection Man, i'm ok with it i was just wondering.

    Vintage seems to project more.

    My vintage lasts about 10-12 hours on me with atleast 6 hours of good projection. I've once over sprayed and now I am a bit hesitant using the fragrance.. Slowly appreciating it again though
