    Default Salvador Dali Pour Homme bottle question

    There are the famous flacon with the lips, and there is also this bottle. Which is older?

    My guess is the one on the right. Had never seen that version before.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    They are different perfumes. And the one on the right is newer.

    Likelier (at least based on personal experience and/or first experiences had with this fragrance during the mid 90's) the one on the left

    Two totally different fragrances. I own them both.

    Salvador Dali Pour Homme (1987)
    Salvador by Salvador Dali (1992)

    The older one is better.

    The lips one came first but I don't know if the yellow liquid one was reformulated, which was the case apparently for the lips, if that is an issue for you.

    Isn’t vintage better. With the lips.

    Salvador Dali Pour Homme (1987) with the lips is the only one that was re-issued of the two. Salvador by Salvador Dali (1992) was discontinued.

    The former is a dark rose chypre for men.
    The latter is a resinous semi-oriental aromatic mishmash

    You don’t like the mish mash?

    It's basically "everything 70's in a blender" and isn't bad at all, just not on the same level of excellence as Salvador Dali Pour Homme.

    I wouldn't necessarily say better, but I personally find it to have a little more animalic growl in the base. Not anything stinky, just raw. Well...you might find the whole thing stinky overall, whether vtg or not. It's quite the pungent patch.

    Both vtg and modern (at least as modern as 2014, the newest bottle I have) are both strong as all get out and stand out to me as some of the most interesting, out-there takes on a masculine patchouli ever.

    This is a description of Salvador I mostly agree with, the mish mash part, but to me it smells like it has a mix of popular stuff approaching the early 90's - namely a freshie/aromatic Gillette Cool Wave vibe, which I find delightful. Overall though it smells like it came out well before it did. Not nearly as distinctive as SDPH.

    I think the original 1983 feminine Dali is great, and Laguna (fem) is approaching great as one of the stranger fresh-florals, but the others I've tried are merely good. Only one I found awful, Rubylips. Have only tried maybe 8-9 from the house though. They're really cranking stuff out post-2010.

    I find Le Roy Soleil Homme a nice fresh fougère if you like geranium-forward fougères like Paco Rabanne XS Pour Homme or Creed Himalaya.

    Thanks.
    You're welcome! I'm not sure Le Roy Soleil Homme is really in your wheelhouse considering your artisanal predilections, as the fresh fougère micro-genre itself is one almost rooted in synthetic use (Eternity for Men was the birth of the style afterall), so I'd highly recommend a mini first, unless you've already smelled stuff like Himalaya and were fine with it.
