    Default VINTAGE HERMES QUERY: Did Hermes make massive 16 oz bottles in the 80s?

    The reason I ask is that there is a favorite-of-mine, vintage Hermes up for auction right now, and it's ostensibly 16 full oz, a pour, of edt.

    I have inquired, and the seller assures me it is both authentic and full of perfume; that is, it is NOT a factice bottle.


    The box looks traditional, and correct, and espouses the contents, etc...

    And for what it is -- assuming this is real -- it's going to be a blow-out bargain...

    But before I bid, has anyone here seen one of these? I recall lots of massive pours of edc, but I think the biggest was 12oz.

    This just seems surreal.

    Thanks!

    Was the seller Magie508? Because if it is, if you look further down in the auction it's listed as a .16 oz Mini.

    nope. not that one. It's Amazone; I am loathe to reveal its identity, lest anyone get it who isn't me, but have a look!

    I wrote to him, though and specifically asked if it was a 1.6... to which he replied that it was in fact 16 oz...

    If that is the case, I'd say the starting price is exorbitant!

    hmmm

    Well, Amazon has a link to out-of-stock 16 oz 24 Faubourg so maybe it's legit..

    Houses definitely made such bottles as promotional items. If you don't want all that juice just let me know ;-)
