Although I wasn't familiar with the original version, I took a chance and ordered a sample from POE. This is so wonderful! It's a subtle and unisex blend of woods with a hint of creaminess. However, the scent is quite faint and doesn't linger for very long on my skin or clothing. I would love for it to be reformulated to be more than a faint skin scent, with a stronger emphasis on the delicious milky note. I'd give it 5 stars and buy the 10ml if it was stronger.
