    I came across this bottle and can't seem to place a date on it. I really know nothing about this, I just came across this bottle and thought it was cool! I've seen similar images but nothing exactly like this. My brother suggested that you guys might be able to help me out. Thank you!

    Is the bottle rubber-coated? Cos I know the old Tabus came in rubber coated conical flasks like that, but I've not seen a tester like that, only the retail version with the writing on a gold band.

    Welcome!

    As Tim said, Tabu used to come in trumpet shaped bottle a few decades ago. Usually they are clear glass ones; I have not seen this black one myself. There's plenty of Tabu on ebay, so I dont think it will be worth much there. But the perfume is fantastic, so if there's still some, you should enjoy it.

    A superb collectors piece. Is there any fragrance left? I haven't seen this one before either and I have many Tabu bottles of different kinds.

    I remember that bottle. It was in use at least in the years of around 1967 to 1970. Dana also used the same style bottle at that time for Ambush. The Ambush bottle was colored a dark pink/magenta.
