Wow this is amazing news! Après L'Ondée was the first scent I fell in love with when I began my serious perfume adventure, and it remains so. I have the bee bottle and a back-up as well as a bottle of the 1990s cologne, but your review is tempting me to buy the new formulation.
Lilly33, I doubt you'll be disappointed, especially compared to the bee bottle version, which to me was a thin nothing (I, too, have a backup of that one...purchased at the same time, or I never would have done it). I've not smelled any vintage of the cologne.

Well, I'm now tempted more than ever!

Right after I replied to your last post, I thought maybe I should go back and edit it to say that I hoped you'd like it (everyone's tastes being different) - but then I thought, No, because I truly do doubt you'll be disappointed! :D I've worn it almost daily since receiving it, so I wasn't just carried away by initial sniffs; it really does last a long time on me, retaining its delicacy throughout, but with unexpected character and backbone; and I'm very familiar with its tantalizingly beautiful but wan EDT predecessors.

Thanks to the contributors to this thread - you've prompted me to get one of the newer bottles, and am very happy with it.

I have already a bee bottle version EDT and a very small amount of the vintage parfum. I'd sampled what I believe was the older version of the EDT, which prompted my bee bottle EDT purchase, but I was never completely happy with it, particularly after reading on BN about the reformulation.

Not being the expert others on this thread are, I can't comment in detail on the newer EDT, but it is much more like my memory of the older pre-bee bottle EDT, and much more satisfying.

It's great to hear from someone else who has tried this, thank you for posting your impressions! Very glad you like it.
