Thanks for the feedback as I used this one in high school and I wanted to check it out, but I heard it was very different from the one I used back in high school. Your delineation of it as helped me tremendously. Great " trio"of purchases there btw. Enjoy, mate. Have a great day! Paul H.
I only have a very faint memory of the original that my brother owned 25 years ago. To me, they seem in the same ballpark. The new one opens with a fantastic citrus accord that is similar to a lot of neroli heavy colognes but this one is a touch less dry than normal. After 20 minutes the citrus accord disappears deep into the background and you are left with a dominant combination of nutmeg, cloves and oak moss which is very 80s, very musculine. To me, the drydown is not so leas ant because I am not a fan of these notes at the best of times. And unfortunately projection during the drydown is average. I only tried this one at home so will have to give it a wearing in public to form my final opinion. If it doesn't please me then, it may find itself for sale on the bay.
