I have a bottle of this. PAA says it’s supposed to smell like Alt Innsbruck. And maybe it does, but I’ve never tried the original. Has anyone tried both of these? I’ve read about the original, and it’s described as a tobacco based fragrance, with menthol and alcohol and that’s it. I think I can imagine what that smells like. PAA says he tried to duplicate this scent for 3 years...but he has Apricot Blossom and Prickly Pear oil, among other things, in his ingredients. So, not surprisingly, I’m getting a pear/apricot type scent, with maybe a slight essence of tobacco. Which, in fact, is very pleasing. But not what I expected. The menthol in this is outstanding. It feels different than others, so I think something else is also going on. The face feel is exceptional. Unfortunately my wife literally hates it. She won’t come near me when I wear it. I’m wondering if she’d hate the original? Because to me, I don’t see them being similar. Will probably trade it, but very disappointed to do so.
