    Default My new bottle of Ultraviolet is a disappointment.

    It's been many years since I last bought this fragrance.
    It's now made in Spain and I have to say compared to my pure xs bottle it's a disappointment. I'm not getting much projection or sillage it's basically just a skin scent that lasts. I hope it just needs time to open up but after reading numerous reviews, it seems that it's just not the same anymore.

    Can't speak for what's available now, but love and enjoy the original release which I own.

    I haven't tried it, but I'm sorry to hear that it no longer works out for you.

    I haven't tried this either, but give it a little time, and get a little air in the bottle. May open up after a while.

    Given the amount of time since it's release, it's safe to say it has been reformulated. If it were me, I probably would seek out a decant of the original formulation and do a side to side comparison to be sure.

    I can tell you that my bottle of red man from 2008 is much much better where performance is concerned.

    If you want a sure thing, the original formulation closer to the original release date would be your best bet.

    Not surprised to hear this.

    I’ve been enjoying my bottle of current formula, maybe try it in different weather. The summer may not suit it. Here it’s winter and it’s been working well for me
