    I did get the EDT. Dang it I wish it was the cologne! It was a good deal though.

    Agreed. Been looking for this for a while. A rare vintage that I didn't wear or own back in the day, but have been on the hunt for recently based on reviews.
    Truly amazing.

    I have an old metal-housing Boucheron Japur on the way. I'm hoping the housing comes off that way I can slap in on my modern bottle (or any future bottles) once empty.

    I just really wanted that housing.

    Nothing is alike except for the name.

    Eau is a linear vegetal, slightly peppery, and lavender scent; very fresh and clean. It’s potent and can become cloying if you’re heavy handed on the spray, at least on myself. It’s a “sporty” scent which is not really my style, but I only took a small risk acquiring the bottle. Perhaps my opinion will change come spring/summer when it’s more appropriate to wear.

    I’d rather wear original PRPH over this and the almost current version I have at that.

    Picked up a vintage Pierre Cardin 8 oz bottle. Very smooth opening. No tutti fruiti with this bottle, as the difference to recent bottles is striking.
    Best wishes,

    Chris

    Got these Poisons today as a gift from a perfume loving (not Poison loving) co-worker. His aunt doesn't wear perfumes any more.
    2 of them are almost empty, 10 / 5 ml or so. One of them is an early body oil. The 3rd one is 60/100 ml.
    I own a pristine Esprit de Parfum which is pictured here.
    I'm loving Poison ever since ... and now I will actually wear it more often ... !
    Time travelling, that's what it does. Yeah. Nice day today.20181218_225127.jpg

    Congrats on that one. I've smelled recent Poison, which has tainted my memory of vintage. I suppose I never gave it much thought back in the day as it was marketed to ladies. I need to remember to put it on my test list so I can get an updated view of this classic fragrance.

    Alas.
    I bought Gai Mattiolo Uomo recently. Reminds me a lot of Versace Dreamer.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I'm digging the bottle. A little quirky. The 'ribbed' (?) effect of the lower half and cap are kinda like put a tux on a homeless guy. I like that. Dreamer-like ain't a bad thing either.

    Bought and received the ''Modern Reserve'' version!
    Smelled this gem for the last time in 2010 and now had the opportunity to buy a full 118ml for only €25.
    Leather, spicy, woody, sophisticated and smooth; not like its father of which I had the vtg but sold it to a BN'er because it was not really my taste despite my love for heavy fragrances.
    My Top '11' of main current rotation in no particular order:

    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Antaeus (vtg)
    - Azzaro: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - TF: Ombr Leather
    - Cartier: Santos edt (vtg)
    - Al Haramain: Excellent
    - SA: Shaghaf Oud Abyad
    - SA: Al Basel
    - D&G: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Mancera: Red Tobacco
    - Mancera: Aoud Vanille
