Never sampled the vintage Bamboo, but now I'd like to! The new Bamboo is a rich, green concoction -- one of the better Weil recreations. (I hear the new Zibeline is disappointing, new Antilope is flat, and modern Secrets of Venus, which I've smelled in a store, is nothing much.)


Hi Rednails. The new Bambou and the vintage are totally different beasts. In some ways, the new one (or at least the new version I have) makes more sense as a perfume attempting to evoke bamboo. It's lighter and fresher. The old one is intense...almost all base notes, dark and rich.
