Eager and impatient like a boy opening his presents on his birthday, I opened the order received from Vintage Man in record time, after several years searching for what was my favorite cologne (and which, unfortunately, never came back). reformulate with the quality, duration and inimitable essence of the initial original fragrance) and that, this time, I hoped to find again. Just by uncovering the bottle and bringing it up to my nose, the memory of the fragrance returned. Excited and very happy, I sprayed on my wrists to see how I breathed and the aroma developed.
And that's where the end of what seemed to be the long-awaited discovery began: what promised to be a bombshell of the original cologne, turned into a smell like sweat, not at all pleasant (I can assure you that I was freshly showered and with my skin perfectly dry) and, far from maintaining the nuances of the original D&G fragrance, I have a fragrance with little sillage, little intensity and far from what it claims to be.
I still have a deodorant spray bottle of the 1994 fragrance (which I keep like a treasure). Vintage man IS NOT THAT FRAGRANCE.
It's a real shame, because I had all my hopes pinned on his brand, after wasting money on lousy quality imitators, and after reading the many positive references to his articles. I do not doubt that there will be other fragrances that even improve on the original. Unfortunately, being able to tell you that I think that, in the case of Vintage Man, they have not succeeded (very, very much to my regret).
Thank you for allowing me to give my opinion. I hope that, if they rethink a "remake" of Vintage man, they will manage to improve even on the original fragrance (something tremendously difficult).
