I am looking for an early 1970's bottle of Shalimar. I've done some research and have read the following links.

I now know that the "vintage" Shalimar that I have dates from 1981 to 1986. I can tell the difference between the Saint Gobain des Jonqueres bottle and the Pochet et du Corval, Also I could probably spot a Baccarat.

I thought that all the early gold labels just said Shalimar. But then I found this one on e-bay that claims to be 1967.

(The item number is 330939741131 on case the link doesn't work.)

Notice the label says "Parfum Shalimar Guerlain Paris 68% vol" I thought all the older labels just said "Shalimar" (except of course for the famous "90").

The black and white packaging I believe is correct for the era but I think that packaging was used from the 1960's until well into the early 1980's. Not sure so some help here would also be appreciated..

Another question I have is about the Marly horse. It seemed to come and go. Does anyone know when it was used and when it wasn't used?

Any help would be much appreciated. I am amazed at how much information that is not out there based on the popularity of this fragrance. I've worn this for a long time and now wished I had saved everything.

Any help anyone could give me would be much appreciated.
