    Smells great, the moss is there alright. Although I must say, this is yet another example of a vintage vs. current, where the reformulation is much better than expected when comparing side by side.
    I own a vintage Jazz,black and white plastic bottle, and a month ago, I enter a perfume shop and asked to smell current Jazz. I was very positively surprised: to my rookie nose, this smelled very close to the vintage one.

    Yes. The mossy depth obviously isn't the same in the current, but that's been counterbalanced by formulating it slightly brighter, without becoming "treemossy screechy" (someone has said the new one has "more treble", which I think is apt). I think it's a reasonable move, because you can't reproduce the original perfectly anyway.
    Spray less, love more.

    Mail call from Chanel. I bought these minis for the Chanel for Men bottles, but after smelling the No. 5 Eau de Cologne, I might like it even more. Too soon to know for sure.

    Both iterations of Pour Monsieur are excellent especially if they appear to be nearly full and perhaps unused. These are worth hoarding for liberal application purposes.

    I picked up a Bergdorf Goodman Plaza 3 Triple Cologne on eBay, then a handful from a BN Marketplace seller: Maître Parfumeur et Gantier Santal Noble, Parfums Retro Grand Cuir, Alain Delon Iquitos (I have the aftershave, but I really wanted the EDT), and Jean Pascal Pour Homme.

    Sweet! I love the Iquitos. Never tried the aftershave as I have the edt.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    So, you're the one that grabbed that. I was looking for this a year or so ago, but my search fell by the wayside and I moved on. When I saw the current offering it sparked my interest again, but it wasn't strong enough to actually buy it. I went in another direction with the same seller.

    I picked these up recently. I bought them just for the status of this fragrance. I caught a mall fragrance store sleeping on the older version yesterday . I got what I would call a great deal.

    It pays to scan the shelves of these stores from time to time. If they haven't caught up with Ebay pricing, you could find some good ones.

    I gave away my back up bottle of this to my sister, got nervous and invested in another.

    Nice pickup on the GG. I’m fortunate to already have some. If it turns out I don’t like the Santal Noble, I’ll keep you in mind.

    I got it as part of an excellent trade. Depending on what happens with the EDT, I may part with the AS.

    I bought four scents today (more precisely, the four came today at home; here are two; I'll post the two others tomorrow. I knew Balenciaga pour homme, I already have one, but I didn't have the box. So I bought another with the box and the other, Lapidus pour homme, I never smelled it. I tested it on paper: it smells terrific ! Absolutely great ! I'll test it on me tomorrow.

    No, I have lots of old movie files.

    My first was Jardin du Nil, after which I picked up Parfum d’Habit and Iris Bleu Gris. I’ve also sampled Route du Vétiver (not a fan on the first go-round, but worth another pass) and Eau des Îles, which I liked very much but ended up getting l’Artisan l’Eau du Navigateur instead.
