Are these aftershaves the same just in new packaging?
The 2nd picture is the one I recognise and has been around for a while. The first picture (the one with the packaging and bottle), is unfamiliar to me, and I wonder if it is a variant or a limited edition? Or a much older version.
I've just received a bottle of 212 through the post today from Fragrance Direct and it is in the packaging of the first picture (silver box with black writing) so I think that might be the newer packaging as it has the blue logo on the website picture.
I've worn 212 (women's) for years, and then the packaging changed and name became '212 NYC'. I thought my original 212 had been discontinued so stopped buying it. Then I found out it had just been re-branded; same fragrance.
So, I reckon it'll be the same as your previous silver bottle. The only ones I've found that smells different are 212 VIP (gold packaging) and 212 Sexy (pink) which is similar to original 212, but more deep and intense.
Sorry, I'm rambling, hope that makes some sense. I think Carolina enjoys messing with us!
