    Always liked this one. However, I vastly prefer its brother, Z-14. To me 1-12 is a little too nondescript "soapy" and has an odd "leafy" quality to it, like the smell of the lawn at the end of October. It's really good, but the rich resinous Italian vibe of Z-14 just feels a bit more developed and rounded out as a serious fragrance.

    I agree that vintage 1-12 is not a powerhouse, unlike vintage Z-14, but as your nose gets used to it, you might perceive it more strongly. That's what happened with my vintage bottle. I tend to think of 1-12 more of a dirty, green, citrus frag, then a powerhouse.
