    Why are you having trouble finding the vintage?

    Because I canít tell from photo on eBay if itís vintage or not. Some of them say vintage but they come without box and there is no photo of the label on the bottom of the bottle to see if it says five star or not

    I'm sure a lot has to do with luck since the original came out 38 years ago. The re-release which appeared in 1987 might be easier to come upon.

    The Five Star version is a bit dustier than the deep vintage but otherwise smells good to me. This was always about bergamot and nutmeg to me. Very in-your-face.

    It’s not hard. The original issue is a 1 oz. bottle shaped like a lower-case “b.” The reissue has a donut-shaped bottle with a white spherical cap. Reissues that have a sticker on the bottom saying Bijan Fragrances are essentially the same as the first release; ones that say Five Star Fragrances are reformulated. Reasonably priced bottles of all versions are available.

    I bought a 75 ml bottle from a Fragrancenet 95% full sale not long ago ($4) and it was quite good (5 star formulation), though clearly different than vintage. In fact, vintage is so overpowering that I've been reaching for that $4 bottle more often than the vintage one!

    A reviewer in the BN directory states that Bijan for Men has a "bad breath"-note lingering in the background...LOL! But since no one else mentions that, it's probably just a kind of spice that doesn't sit well with him. Just thought that was pretty funny. I'm snatching a bottle anyway. Hell, if it was good enough for De Niro it's good enough for me!
