    Current one has excellent performance... has some differences in the opening with less mint and lavender, but after an hour it becomes the same scent IME...

    Can't help you tracking a vintage one because I'm not an expert so I have no idea about the bottle's differences...

    My bottle has 4 hours tops in it. Not sure from when it is but I got it in 2016 around July. The pre-reformulation would be pre 2010 and even then its probably just before the last reformulation. The scent has been out for 20 years, its bound to have been reformulated a number of times.

    For sure.

    Click on all the Le Males on ebay and eventually you will find a seller who is clearly a collector sellimg backup bottles. Ask for the batch code. Or it may he visible in his pics. Look carefully at the pics. I did this awhile back and the ones he was selling were the 2.5oz i think, but they had a little tag on the side that said there was also a sample of a new female release (at the time the batch was made) also in the can. No fake would have that. That was my thrd varification. And I used to own Le Male around 1998, and my version is legit. Beast longevityand it is from the early2000s. I think I paid like $10 over what other sellers wanted for a 2.5, but the seller hadn't labelled it as vintage or really jacked the price. There are deals to be had on legit frags on ebay. You just need tp be patient over a few weeks to find them.
