    I haven't tried the latest. I do know that the 2008-ish version was pretty close to the 80's version.

    This one never clicked with me.

    I recently sampled the latest (never tried any other versions), and found it very green, stemmy, florist shop smell. Longevity was good.

    What occasions call for wearing Devin ? I couldn't think of any not covered by frags I already own, including Tuscany.
    When do you wear it ?
    January to Candlemas - cold, pale and dark : CdG Zagorsk; PradaInfusion d'Iris; L.T Piver Heliotrope Blanc; Etro Heliotrope and Vetiver; Gucci Guilty Absolute pH; Jacomo Jacomo de Jacomo; Lalique Encre Noire.
    Sampling Papillon Angelique; Tom Daxon Iridium; Rundholz Feb 14, 1912, Andy Tauer Lonesome Rider; Penhaligon's Sartorial; Tom Ford Ombre Leather.

    Funny thing these Aramis scents. I wore Devin back in the day, and Tuscany, and JHL and New West. Devin was always that Scottish pine type of scent. Very bracing, very manly, very outdoorsy almost lumberjack type of scent. But with many colognes I wore back in the early 80's, what I remember smelling and how I perceive it now, I just can not bring myself to like them. The first Calvin Klein, the first Oscar de Laurent Loi, Halson Z-14 and I-12.

    The new interpretation is pretty good considering that this was once an oakmoss-centric fragrance. Without the oakmoss, it just doesn't have the same depth and longevity.

    The most recent versions have treemoss and oakmoss in it unless they completely screwed it off the ingrediants

    Last year I picked up an old splash bottle that smelled like all the top notes were gone. Pretty much smelled like pure oakmoss. I'm guessing air got in there and/or it wasn't stored well. I later bought a vintage mini off eBay and it was like night and day, all those floral/green notes were there, almost effervescent..
