Fine has returned the IC splash back to his lineup, fantastic stuff!

Ordered myself one. Never experienced it before but heard a lot about it. I went ahead and picked up an American Blend as well.

I'm eagerly awaiting reviews. I still have a stash of the OG bottles (and some XXX which is the same).
I remember the first reformulation (square bottles) was not good. I hope this turns out better!

Same here, have a few bottles left of the original IC. Also agree the reformulated version was not as good. Although to my nose the original IC and Fine XXX (still have a couple bottles of that too) are different. Todd at Fine confirmed the original IC opens up more like Colonia Essenza, which is another winner from AdP. At any rate, looking forward to trying it & will post my review as soon as I get the latest Italian Citrus.

You might be right. My memory struggles lately.

Does anyone know if Todd has changed the ingredients (besides scent) lately?

Got my new IC today. Although it smells fantastic, it is definitely more similar to the Fine/RR XXX compared to the original Italian Citrus. Scent is completely subjective and honestly can't imagine anyone being disappointed by the new release (especially if you're a fan of AdP Colonia), but I will still give the nod to the original IC.

I'm a huge ADP Colonia fan. I have like 4 soaps and 3 splashes from various vendors. Each is a little different but always good

So its safe to say it doesnt smell like an orange creamsicle or a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice, nor anything in between?

I bought the other one with "orange" in the title, and the only thing orange about it is in the name only.

I don't get orange creamsicle or straight OJ from the new IC, to me it's along the same citrus/floral scent line as AdP Colonia or 4711

L'Orange Noir is a Terre D' Hermes knockoff.
