This is from a sealed 4.2 edt bottle from the 1950s.
A superb citrus chypre, quite similar to Homme de Gres, but whereas the latter used lemon, Le Jade uses lime, thus the green color and jade reference.
Obviously, the Gres borrowed the idea from R&G, and whereas the Gres was my favorite citrus chypre up until now, the R&G ties the vote.
A shame this went out of production - a superb men's scent.
