    Default Info. on Vintage Guerlain, Vetiver EDC (pics)

    I recently got this bottle of Guerlain Vetiver, EDC. The box says "1980" on it and it smells fantastic but drastically different from the current formulation. I would like to get some background information on this bottle and formulation. Thanks!

    Both the bottle and box design confirms that what you are wearing is in fact vintage Vetiver. One of my favorite scents, and yes vastly different from the current juice (green) on the market. Enjoy! More info here: http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?p=1325233

    Where did you find this bottle TheAttorney?

    This bottle was used for various colognes, also feminines, but only for a short time.

    I love the tortoiseshell cap. Very circa 1970's styling.

    Actually, the brown top piece is not a cap, it is a spray mechanism. It really does look like a cap. But if you press the button on top of the brown thing down it will spray.

    I love it too. Don'tcha wish it came in a big size as well? Think of how beautifully mammoth a 125ml bottle in that style would be!
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.
