    Wink Captain Molyneux waiting for your diagnosis.

    Dear friends. I need your help
    Recently he came to me, this Mr. Captain. (barrel 240 ml)

    And I'm not sure of his quality. It's smell is not same as before. (After shave 60 ml - batch 4FT). I suspected this can happen, but I did not think so much. There absent legendary green oak moss. From smell just a headache.

    I want very much to hear your thoughts on this. And I will be glad to any comments and help.

    (P.S. I am a doctor from Russia and my English is so-so, my friends)

    I have a 125ml original EDT spray of Captain that looks like your 240ml bottle in the photo and the quality of mine is exceptional. Is that you find a difference in the quality of the two types? I get pronounced oakmoss in mine.

    hednic, thank you for your participation, comrade!

    I think it's a remake. Unsuccessful.
    Either poor storage conditions.
    I'm confused.

    I think this could definitely account for its weakness and lackluster quality.

    Botttle is old vintage.
    If juice is not good than storage condition or adulteration (especially if not spray bottle)

    I am embarrassed - the box has a metallic footway. (240 ml) And bottle more blue. Not green. This is different from what I had. (60 ml)

    I do not think it's bottle very old.

    That's definitely a vintage bottle. Is it a spray or a splash? If it's a splash, the seal may have been compromised which may have impacted the smell.

    If it doesn't smell as it should, it may not have been stored properly. I own vintage Captain Molyneux and though it's robust and well constructed, I don't get the performance that you'd expect from an 80's powerhouse. I only get 2-3 hours of decent projection, then it settles down to a nice skin scent for the next 2 hours and then it's gone.
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
