And then I come here to fragrantica to see several people reporting on the new powerful reformulation.
I am going to get myself this years reformulation, as I am now quite sure that the boy wore it, it was so powerful I kept remembering it like I was still smelling it throughout the day.
I would agree that longevity isn't as strong as it once was, but the scent itself has that familiar strength to it, and it smells wonderful.
If you have been annoyed with how watered down Le Male has become in the past number of years, check out a bottle or box that says 'PUIG" on it....you'll be happy you did. So Le Male will be back and it will be a hype again! hehe, well interesting, i gotta check out the Puig bottles.
UPDATE: Please everybody go and smell 2017 Puig Le Male. The first time a reformulation is better than the original.
So the smell is really fantastic, especially in the drydown i thought why the hell did i waited so long to give this one a try. Same balsamic smoky vibe with just a bit of sweetness, very relaxing and intoxicating.I now can see why this is so popular, little syntetic thou Longevity is very good but sillage is average, Body kouros gives me more sillage and longevity. LOL Planing to layer it with BK and Lolita Lempicka au masculin and see what comes out.*Review 200ML 2016 Batch formulation* Scent: 8.5/10* Longevity: 10/10 (4 sprays) Projection/sillage: 2/10 (4 sprays) Versatile: 7.5/10* _________________________ Total: 7* I owned a bottle from 2006 and it ran out last year so I got a new one and damn what a difference.I smelled Le Male the first moment but usually with todays fragrances the first moment fascination goes quickly away as nasal receptors quickly adapt to the smell.But as we were sitting there the smell was persisting all the time, with the same power.
