    Default Question(s) On A Couple Vtg Buys

    Hi guys!

    I've been offered 2 vintages at great prices - Montana Parfum d'Homme & Trussardi Uomo. So:
    The MPd I've never tried. I love the note-pyramid but it contains vanilla which I friggin' loathe. My q is, how prominent is the vanilla note?
    The TU is a "newer" w the small greyhound-logo (as opposed to the early larger logo). I have a late-80s bottle and love it. The current stuff is a completely different scent and smells more like the likes of Chrome, metallic and gross. So: when did the Trussardi-logo change from the greyhound to the crest? And is this inbetween-version of TU any good? It can't possibly be as bad as the current.. Here're the bottles in question:
    Any input appreciated
    Best,
    Martin

    On the Montana, I don't think it smells like vanilla. Do you like Havana? If so, you might like Montana.

    Montana is good and I can't detect vanilla in it.

    I agree that vanilla is not dominant at all in the Montana. Trust me when I say that you want that fragrance in your stable!

    I don't recall vanilla being prominent at all in the Montana.

    Thanks guys! That's good enough for me. I pulled the trigger on it.
    Still curious about that Trussardi Uomo, though.
