I have only tried the new formulation so I can't comment on vintage versus reformulated. However I will say that there's a reason fragrances get reformulated - because tastes were different in the 50's, 70's, 90's and you have to modernize or else. That being said, I do detest most department store fragrances. I have a wide range of perfumes for my moods, some of which I have reviewed here on MUA. Maja is unlike anything else in my collection. There is a distinct spicy note that is absolutely divine, lasting power is amazing considering it's an EDT. I would never have picked out the notes, it just works for me! Try the body lotion for something different. It is very moisturizing and has such a fresh, clean scent. I haven't actually finished my bottle yet, but this is a scent that will always be in my rotation. **I just purchased a bottle of vintage Maja to see what all the hype was about. Turns out I was right when I said perfumes must modernize - vintage Maja is an 80s powder bomb. Not what I want to smell like today, and yet oddly addictive... I prefer the reformulation but may have to keep this squirreled away for nostalgia.
