    Default Need recommendations for a new fragrance to replace my old standby which was Tommy Hilfiger

    Many years ago I used to wear Tommy Hilfiger cologne and that was my favorite.

    This week I ordered a brand new bottle of it, and sprayed some on my wrist, and to me it doesn't smell the same as the original version used to, and I don't like the new version.

    I looked into this matter a bit and I found out that the manufacturer was switched from the old one that starts with an A (I forget how to spell it) to Estee Lauder and Estee Lauder made reformulations of it. I really wish they hadn't've done that.

    So now I need some replacement to be my main cologne, but I have no idea which one to go with.

    I don't know a lot about these things.

    Ideally I'd want my new brand to be:

    - relatively cheap to buy

    - smells very good and possibly similar to how the original Tommy fragrance smelled before they changed manufactures

    - lasts for a long time

    - in general, women usually love how it smells

    I don't find the new formulation to be that far removed from the original. I do notice differences, though.
    I can't think of anything exactly like it.....have you tried Mont Blanc Legend or Acqua Di Gio? They aren't going to be exactly the same but would be good old school fresh replacements.

    Perhaps Eau Sauvage by Dior as a new fresh start.

    Correct, the main scent structure is there and some overspraying or sprays to clothing will fix any performance issues. It definitely has its own thing going on and hard to find a replacement for it.

    eBay for older bottles prior to the reformulation would be your best bet it should be easy to acquire them.

    Yeah, vintage Tommy shouldn't run ya out of money. I haven't really looked though. It is a great scent. It's popularity ended up hurting it in the end. It's played out but that doesn't mean it's bad.

    Byredo Pulp would be a nice alternative if it were cheaper.
