    Re: vintage Shalimar - advice wanted

    I've decided to buy a 45ml batwing bottle of pure parfum, the one with the blue glass stopper. I don't know how old it is, but the colour is quite light. The label just says Shalimar, with Guerlain...

    Ma Griffe vintage parfum

    Re: Replique vintage

    The newer bottle is reasonably easy to get, so I'm pleased to hear that the juice you have is dark.

    Isn't this a marvellous, unusual perfume, a real perfumer's triumph, alchemy as well as art,...

    Thanks Lisa

    I am blessed, or cursed, with an elephant's memory and things that whistle over the head of the average perfume lover, positively shout at me from the screen, saying 'you must try that...

    Re: Replique vintage

    Hi Cincy

    Yes, that's my bottle. So the juice may be quite old, hence the dark colour. Mine looks like it may still have been sealed, so I'm hoping that the evaporation hasn't harmed the quality of...

    Replique vintage

    I love No 5 and was advised to try First, on the basis that it is a floral, aldehydic, traditional French style perfume. Although the notes are not at all similar, I found I liked it very much.
