I've tried the vintage and current versions--current version is missing some "oomph." It's lost some of that heady, nectar-sweet floral quality, and maybe some of the sandalwood. Still...

Loved it over 10 years ago, then it seemed too sweet. Now I try and love again! similar to Boucheron but less loud, mello wood helps it. fits well. My choice for big powdery Amber/vanilla scent.
