As you can see there have been at least two formulations of Mandarin.

Which one is which and when did the change happen?

Left: older, bought around 2011 in France; right: bought about six months ago through Amazon. Strangely the older one writes more red even if it looks more orange in the bottle.

Thanks for the reply.

 

I think I got the newer version, but I bought it a couple of years ago.

The old one kind of looks like Amber (IotY 2013) so perhaps that's when they changed it?

Is there any way of telling the two versions apart from their bottles? Other than the obvious colour difference, I mean. Sometimes sellers have pictures taken in different lighting, and they look like the older version, but they are still the newer version.
