    If you were asking about the scent of MFR, it's said to be inspired by Creed's Millesime Imperial. I have no experience with Millesime Imperial, but I will just say that MFR is a very pleasant citrus floral with warm amber and sandalwood dry down along with a modest amount of musk.

    Thanks for this as well. No you were correct, I was asking about the newer base. I see there have been a few base changes the past few years.

    Sunday Schick Shave, Nov08th, 2020- I like to use my Schick razors on Sundays. Excellent razors IMO!

    Razor: Schick 500 injector with Hydro-magic feature- Mfg 1957-64, unisex type razor- handle is my longest of my collection(5 3/8" length).
    Blade: Personna SS PTFE(9) excellent blade, Very sharp, great longevity & smooths out nicely over time. Personna steel is amazing when you can leave it out for months and when it comes up again for rotation and finding it has not degraded the cutting edge.
    Soap: Tabac- it has a mild flowery clean scent with excellent lather qualities and has been around for decades tell the story of success.

    Brush: Yaqi tuxedo knot 24 mm(Sagrada Familia)- named after the famous cathedral in Barcelona Spain, Excellent lather creator with cloud like soft tips.
    Pre Shave: Brush wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on cleaned beard area.
    Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Razorock Emperor with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BbS +minor irritation + 1 blemish weeper=[​IMG] excellent shave with my Schick 500 injector.

    I decided to go with this set. I held off posting because I had a showdown between this scent and PAA Tombstone. I rarely ever want to wear Tombstone because it's a very specific and 'niche' type of scent. I have to be in the mood for it and I am today, but I had Safari lined up as the one to use. I smelled both constantly at my computer desk as I went about my late-morning sleep-in Sunday. I decided to stay with Safari as it is my 2nd favorite scent in my entire collection. I may put Tombstone on another day soon. I just hope I feel like the scent again. Anyway, Safari is the pick. I will post back after my bath and shave. My face still has a few spots from yesterday's weepers due to that over-shave. I will have to be conservative a bit on this shave today and I'll skip shaving Monday since I work from home anyway.

    ***EDIT - 2 passes + clean up. The shave felt good, so I gave it a more thorough go since I'm skipping a shave tomorrow. I got a great shave and I smell like a million.
