Regarding Eternity FOR MEN/for men:Hey Diddy! Yes, I made that mistake last summer, and Arden Sandalwood is now a top 5 for me... The bone dry, aromatic structure is right up my alley, and it performs extremely well in any weather due to a 'sharpness'. Gucci Nobile is the only other aromatic that comes close in the heat, as it is pretty dry as well.
Dead gummit, now I've got to try some vintage Eternity... Thanks for the heads-up on this one!
- Do NOT search "vintage" as that will only lead to sellers charging higher prices for the buzzword.
- Only purchase from sellers posting a photo of the actual bottle, including labeling.
- Look for - Eternity FOR MEN (CK distribution) or Eternity for men (Unilever distribution). Silver/chrome stickers on the bottom of the bottle will tell you the distributor. I've not tried Lancaster distribution, but would not be afraid to give it a whirl. The original release has "FOR MEN" all caps but be aware that CK went back to the all caps for modern bottles, therefore making the distributor the key to successfully acquiring vintage.
- This basic history of logo is: Eternity FOR MEN (CK distribution), Eternity for men (CK distribution), Eternity for men (Unilever distribution), Eternity for men (Lancaster distribution, very briefly).... Don't waste dollars on any other formulation as they only mimic the top notes of the vintage and miss out on the true development of the fragrance.
- I recently purchased a 100ml spray bottle of 'for men' CK distribution for $24 plus free shipping. A quick ebay search will reveal that there is an abundance (at least in the USA) of vintage stuff for $30 or less.
