Basenotes Dependent

I have a vintage bottle and recently got a vintage mini. I thought it would be interesting to compare them.
The mini is a pleasant, soft fougere. I get some of the green galbanum and sharp lavender. Bit of grassy vetiver and then a mossy dry-down. The scent is surprisingly low-key for a '70's scent. The mini box says "Eau de Cologne."
The bottle has a more pronounced wood note and a little bigger profile. A little less green. The bottle says "Eau de Toilette Concentree". I get a bit of creamy sandalwood here, although it is not listed in the notes.
Not a well known scent in its vintage version. The BN photo shows a bright red bottle, which for me suggests "SPICE."

BN doesn't list different versions or flankers.
Top Notes: lemon, bergamot, clary sage, lavender
Heart Notes: geranium, carnation, cedarwood, vetiver, cardamom, galbanum
Base Notes: oakmoss, tonka, musk, patchouli
