        I have loved Cinnabar ever since the first day our paths crossed back in 1980. I thought I met heaven on earth and I was right. Cinnabar is a beautiful and strong fragrance. A little goes a very long way. Because of this, I only wear it in the fall and winter and when I apply it, I spray it up in the air and then step under it to catch the mist. The scent is incredible and unique. I have never experienced anything else even close to this scent. I have gotten so many compliments on this fragrance. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the dusting powder, soap, and body lotion! They were all so amazing!!!

        I have been wearing Cinnabar for over 30 years, since high school. It was often the only fragrance I owned - no need for anything else. I've never worn anything that people complimented more. Even others that wore Cinnabar said it smelled better on me. I recently needed to restock. I wasn't thrilled with the new bottle design, and was heartbroken to discover it didn't smell the same either. It's flatter and less spicy. There is a slight, weird, sour, citrusy scent I never noticed before. It doesn't last like it used to. The scent gets weirder as it wears. Not only does it not smell like Cinnabar, it doesn't smell good on me at all. Even my husband and son are telling me I don't smell like me. Please, please bring it back.

        Bring back the real Cinnabar

        By 

        from Cullman, Al

        Comments about Estee Lauder Cinnabar Eau de Parfum Spray:

        I recently purchased Cinnabar. This is not the original formulation of Cinnabar. I first used Cinnabar in 1979, and used it for the next decade or so. It was my signature fragrance. I met my future husband while wearing this fragrance, and it has always been his favorite of all the fragrances that i've worn over the years. After purchasing this new bottle, he agreed that this was not the Cinnabar, that we knew. This new formulation smells more like Youth Dew, which I never really care for, as it always reminded me of bath oil. Please stop trying to pass this new formulation off as the old, it is not. Cinnabar was a big deal for Estee Lauder when it was released, I doubt she would be pleased to know that her company has changed the original formulation, and that they are trying to pass it off as the old. The sense of smell is so tied to people's memories. In changing the formulation and passing it off as the old, you are toying with people's memories. How dare you? Bring back the old formulation, let customer's know that you have reverted to the old formula and I'm sure you will see a resurgence in sells.

        A huge disappointment

        By 

        from Palm Beach County, FL, USA

        Comments about Estee Lauder Cinnabar Eau de Parfum Spray:

        I had been happily using Cinnabar since the mid-1980's and I often had people asking me to name the lovely fragrance I was wearing. In fact, I have always had a bottle on my dressing table. A number of months ago, I purchased a bottle that claimed to be the original fragrance; it came in a bottle unlike its prior packaging which had a red cap. The new bottle has a different cap. It is not the same fragrance and I am terribly disappointed in it. Thinking my husband could get my "original" Cinnabar for me for Mother's Day, I went on the Estée Lauder website and read that I am not the only unhappy customer. It is difficult to quantify how the new product differs from the old, but it is clear from other reviews that I am not the only one who detected a difference.

        I am posting this email to customer service on the Estée Lauder site for others to read. Although, as you claim, your "juice" may be the same, something else is different. Please bring back the fragrance that Cinnabar is loved for and that your customers are missing.

            I switched from Opium to Cinnabar. Cinnabar is the fragrance I prefer to use during the winter months.

                Comments about Estee Lauder Cinnabar Eau de Parfum Spray:

                I received a bottle of Cinnabar for xmas and was very disappointed to discover this was not the scent I know and love and that was easily recognized and much noticed and praised. It is now a more sweet and bland 'samey' perfume that has lost its distinctive warm spiceyness.

                Very disappointing and surprised the Estée Lauder would meddle with a well loved fragrance.

                New Cinnabar vs old

                By 

                from Berlin, Germany

                Comments about Estee Lauder Cinnabar Eau de Parfum Spray:

                Dear Sirs,

                I am using Cinnabar since 1985 as perfume from September until May. then I usually change to a May perfume (Lilly of the valley) and June through August to a summer perfume.

                However, a few years ago I started to use it throughout the year apart from May, because I miss it too much.

                To my dismay, not only myself, but even friends and family noted a the difference between the new and the old version of cinnabar.

                I wish you would switch back to the old version, it had more grip, more deepness and volume.

                Why change a perfectly well balanced perfume?

                Is there a possibility to buy some of the old version?

                With kind regards,

                Comments about Estee Lauder Cinnabar Eau de Parfum Spray:

                I found Cinnabar over 30 years ago and have always loved it. It is very spicy and romantic, scrumptious. I have to remind myself that a little goes a long way. And I also learned that rubbing my wrists together after I sprayed it on would destroy the top notes of the fragrance. Hours after application, I can still detect the remainder of this beautiful fragrance. It suits my personality really well and I absolutely love it!

                Comments about Estee Lauder Cinnabar Eau de Parfum Spray:

                Overall, cinnabar is my scent and has been for 30+ years. The formulation was changed a while ago, so it's not the same, (Doesn't last and it smells sweeter than it used to). I can no longer get the powder or lotion, so that's a negative, But I can't find anything else I like as well so until then, it's the only thing I wear.
