    SATURDAY:

    Guerlain Derby

    I finally got a sample of the vintage. Put it on first thing this morning. And this evening, I've been doing a comparison with it on one arm, and the current version on the other. My novice impressions between the two: the vintage has the leather, where the current doesn't really. The vintage does not have the floral aspect, as does the current. And the vintage does not have a "clean, somewhat soapy" background vibe (a good thing, BTW) as does the current. Basically, the vintage seems more spicy/leathery, and the current is more floral and soapy (in a good way). In terms of longevity, I'd say both are about the same, actually. Perhaps the vintage lasted a tad more, but it doesn't project as much as the current. Both work very well with an added spray on the undershirt to give it all day presence.

    Bottom line: I like both equally. If someone were to make me choose one of the other, honestly, I'd probably opt for the current. But good grief, they're both outstanding IMHO.

    Top posting, my friend. So true. Perfect descriptions.

    The new version still manages to smell just as "classic" as the actual vintage Derby. It's quite a trick. I think there might be some frankincense added, which often comes across as gravitas.

    Thanks! The new version does seem "classic" - nice way of putting it. And frankincense - perhaps. I've been wondering what that "something else" is, but haven't been able to figure it out. Whatever it is, I dig it.

    Roger that! Polo envy is one that I've never tried. And Stetson never worked for me. I actually re-visited Stetson a couple of years ago, and alas, it's still not for me.

    Polo envy isn't a fragrance, rather a feeling you get when you don't have $60 or whatever it cost for a bottle of the stuff. You're in elementary school, with no job and no income. Things are tight. For Christmas, you get a backup of Stetson. Times can be tough.

    Polo envy is what I get when someone's embroidered horse is bigger than mine.

    Wonderfully written. I thought the vintage was a bit more natural and less refined compared to the current which quite often I prefer.

    I look forward to reading your impressions of Bois Noir

    Unfortunately the price right now is on the cheaper end for vintage Derby.

    You can check the splits here, Stifeknot was hosting a split of Derby recently.

    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
