Not sure about reformulations on this one. However, what I do know, and that many don't know, is when Le Male was first introduced in 95, the bottle was just plain blue without the stripes, still the same foggy sort of color and finish, but there was no stripes on the bottle. They changed it a couple months afterwards. But the possibility of finding a bottle, is about as likely as finding Diesel Green Special Edition, pretty damn rare. I have seen one floating around on Ebay, and that was about a year ago. As for whether or not the juice inside was a stronger formula or not, I couldn't tell ya. I could tell ya that Le Male as is now, is pretty damn strong.
