    Default Semi-vintage One Man Show... Pine? Similar to Quorum??

    So I found a tester that was new in box that listed Castoreum on the back, which is considered vintage.... I think its the 85 Vol variation, not the old vintage of 85 only on the front... What Im wondering is, Im getting a lot of pine pine pine, and not anything animalic like Ive seen in the reviews. Also, Ive seen it compared to Quorum, which I have several bottles and I dont get any similarity between them neither... crazy.

    Interresting. I have a pre-barcode bottle of OMS and it is absolutely stuffed full of castoreum (no idea how old it is but batch# is 17). Seriously, it is ultra animalic. Absolutely no resemblance to either newer or vintage Quorum, whatsoever.

    I don't get that connection either.

    Exactly... Look here: https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/...Show-7795.html

    Search Quorum.

    Maybe I cant just pick up on the Castoreum? Clearly says mine has it in it, but I think Ive read that there are a few versions of it that could be used, right? By that I mean similar to musks, there is say standard musk, nitro musk etc.

    Maybe my contribution has no value in this discussion but castoreum is listed in the bottom notes but not in the "notes de fond" (french translation of bottom notes) where labdanum is listed...

    I also see resemblance to Krizia Uomo. I think there is a deeper vintage of OMS (not tried it so this is a conjecture) that is different and is what is being talked about here.

    Dunno how old my bottle is, impossible to say, I think. But it must be quite the oldie. I'd like to get my hands on an early splash and decant it.
