I had a quite strange experience.
Found this bottle in a sort of "garbage angle" in a small perfumery, and the old seller told me it was there "more than 10 years!"
and nobody wanted to buy it because "it's a splash bottle, nobody want splashes today...
". Okay.First: no indications on the sides or bottom or top of the velvet box.Second: only Three ingredients on back.Third: A strange batch code on the velvet
and finally, the bottom sticker is different from other ones: it's written only in italian.
note: the batch code is THE SAME on box and on bottle
Now, check cosmetic says: YEAR 2007.
the strange things are:
- Can only 3 ingredients be listed on box, in 2007 ? (IFRA directives activated already in 2000-2001)
- Can splash bottles be still in production, in 2007? (almost every splash production, excepted the aftershaves, ended in 1999-2000, all brands )
My suspect is: this a bottle from 1997, not 2007. Could it be possible? What's your opinion?
Could you post any picture of your vintage bottle box? Especially for ingredients list.(Smell is definitely richer and more refined than today bottles: it's pity for the missing spray)
