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...

The new EdT is a common place jumble of rose and fruit with only a pale undertone of the cool resins and green powdery nots that make the Maja shower gel so delightful. Very disappointing.

Inexpensive but oddly enough this is hard to find in Australia. The soap is sold almost everywhere but I only know of two chemists that sell the edt. On me this is short lived and rather bland,...

I smelt the original in Tenerife when I was a teenager and I remember recoiling from the heavy pungent notes, especially strong in the heat. So after thinking I did not like it I was dubious about...

Sadly, even I (probably an older woman on MUA) don't remember the original Maja, which was one of the grand perfumes back in the day. This review is for the new version, which I indeed found dirt...

I just received a vintage bottle in from an E-Bay purchase. As soon as I took the top off I was reminded of an old Avon fragrance from the 60's, Rapture. It was the one in the cute teal green...

I came about this fragrance totally by accident. <p>I had started an online business selling cosmetics and perfume, and a friend gave me a box full of Spanish products that her mother had lying...

I was originally going to pan this re-orchestration of a masterpiece. But I cannot. The new Maja has none of the raw spiciness of the original, and is decidedly less pungent and aggresive. What...

I am bitterly disappointed. If I were reviewing classic Maja, my rating would be 5 lipsticks. A beautiful earthy-sweet Oriental, with no pumpkin pie spice scent, unlike most Orientals (don't get...

I must say I prefer the old Maja, the uncompromising Maja that smelled like the flamenco -- hot spicy, racy, and a bit tawdry. This stuff exudes sensuality. Light and floral it is not. It is...
