    Maybe I am wrong about the big bottle in the middle, but I think it is a Lalique inspired bottle made by Heinrich Hoffman around 1920...?

    So I think rtamara has the correct answer. Either way, she can have my other correct answer above if not, I didn't mean to take it away from her. I was looking at the pictures and the empty lists and not the posts, I did not know she was after that one.
    oh my. honestly, Chris is being gallant here, for sure, since if one looks at the photos, the Bleeker Street is more of a sage green rather than emerald. Truth must prevail.
    although if mon frere Chris is at his five guess quota and wants to let me have his answer, well, would it be un ladylike for me to refuse such a gesture of chivalry??????

    Sheesh, you guys are getting WAY too good at this! After less than 24 hours, only FOUR bottles remain completely unidentified. (A handful of others are pending clarification or advice.) Apparently, I went too easy on y'all with the stumpers this time!

    If someone can provide a link to a Creed Fleurissimo picture that looks identical to the one in the collage, rtamara41 will get the point (she was second with that guess after Lian, who now has 5 with another guess).

    Fleurissimo and the other Creeds submitted are not the one I'm looking for, but I can be persuaded.

    Visual progress.

    from here

    Let me know if the links do not work. It's just the green cap that made me think it was Fleurissimo
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    ah, yes, I think Sir Slarty indeed has that Irisia correct. Like Lian, I was going by the bottle shape and the cap, unsure about the color of the juice.

    Of the two bottles that remain, both houses are French. They are approximately 100 years apart, and only one is in the directory.

    A fragrant amphibian holds the key to the first, and as for the second, they called her the Sparkling Diamond, and she was the star.
