Ok, here are some tips and hints about L'Artisan production
Please have patience because it's a bit complicated
The ancient octagonal (=8 sides) bottle with a some what "round" or "crown" cap:it means: produced before summer 2006.
The modern (heptagonal=7 sides) bottle with hexagonal (=6 sides) cap:it means: produced after summer 2006.
The box with the writing "L' Artisan Parfumeur" in the bottom :
same of ancient bottle (=before summer 2006)
(in the upper part of the box = after summer 2006)
if the box reports the phrase: "Distributed in USA by Sandi Burrows":produced between 1994 and 2003
if the box reports the phrase: "Distributed in USA by Cradle Holdings":produced from 2003 to circa 2006
"Distributed in USA by L'Artisan Parfumeur"produced circa 2006 -ongoing
(IMHO, very IMHO....)
