    Ok, I may have to beg your (collective) pardon here too.. but is there a difference between the bottles from the 50s/60s (left) and earlier ones (right)?

    I note a paper label on one of them which is not on the other.

    The paper label simply indicates that the product is not to be sold by unauthorized vendors. This particular style label with the red marley horse logo was used between 1930 and 1950. The juice inside I don't know - I've never tried pre-1960's VdN.

    I've asked for a few more details/photos which will be sent to me soon, and will sleep on it tonight. At the moment it looks as if I might.

    I wanted the vintage extrait for so long, but I am such a cheapskate. I wasn't willing to go over $125. And it never fails when a VdN bottle pops up on eBay and I have no cash to snap it up.

    I am finally chiming in.
    Buy it!! It is one of the masterpieces of the Guerlain stable of scents. It smells fabulous, it is timeless, it is one of the top 10 greatest in my opinion.
    To miss an opportunity of this magnitude would be something to ponder through older age.
    Good luck

    Excellent choice Dimi ... I'm pretty sure that you shall not regret it ! ......

    But just in case you do ..... you'll know just in which direction to throw it (wink wink, nudge nuge ) .... Then again, you will probably have quite a few of us tearing each other limb from limb, just to get front in line ! .... The "Great Vol de Nuit Massacre of 2009" ...... (LOL) !

    Good to hear D.

    Do me a favor - give it at least a handful of wearings before you make a decision about it. VdN is one of those scents that it takes several wearings to wrap your head around.

    I'm with you Mike, it took me half a year to really love its powdery iris and green-brown heart - but I was also Guerlain novice back then

    Well, Pelle shared a small amount with me from a current EDT. I was blown away actually and wondered why the heck I hadn't been exposed to this one sooner. I have some experience with extraits as I ownd the Angel extrait once, and have a few other vintage ones and think I know what I can expect from the VdN. However, part of me thinks its likely to be 10 times more than I can imagine for now.
    I think after so much deliberation I would be too crazy if I didn't buy it, just to see what I've been contemplating for so long.

    One last piccie of the bottle which will be en route in a couple of days:

    The extrait is IMO so much better than the EdT. Mind you, I only tested new EdT (rather than vintage) but I found the VdN EdT rather lacking whereas the parfum is just hugely deep and complex.

    So excited for you D.

    I have the extrait, but sometimes I want it a bit lighter, and the EDT is great for that. For me, it did not take long to "get it":

    1st wearing: what?
    2nd wearing: mmm, galbanum
    3rd wearing: where have you been all my life?
