As a 20 year old in 1980 I tried this fragrance in London and loved it. The bottle I bought last week, though very competitively priced is a shadow of the original. The original very strong fragrance I recall has been seriously reduced.I agree with a previous reviewer. I sprayed it thrice on both sides of my neck and it was gone in 2 hours. It is still a glorious scent, mossy and masculine and very like Monsieur de Givenchy (also now sadly more feint). Still love it. A classic man's cologne.
