    Default Guerlain testers?

    OK, these testers....I've never seen this shape, nor have I seen extrait-strength testers before. (But, then, none of these frags are available in-store near me)

    Ebay auctions for Guerlain Parfum Testers

    Anyone know if this is potentially authentic, and if so, when were/are these in action?

    I have two of these testers; Samsara and Vol de Nuit. Both are perfectly fine. This type of tester is still in production afaik, so these may very well be 100% authentic.

    I have this one & I evidently paid too much! It's really nice. There is nothing wrong with it. I'd go for it if I needed one. I have all the Guerlain extraits I need at the moment.

    For some inexplicable reason the Guerlain counter at my local department store only has extrait testers like that for certain frags. Jicky, VdN and something else. I think it used to be Nahema but I believe it's something else now.

    So, yeah, I've seen then them before.

    I seem to have jumped the gun. Jicky, Vol de Nuit, L'Huere Bleu I think that's all. Besides the Chamade tester. Nahema just didn't do it for me.

    Oh, the Chamade tester is calling my name. Good price compared with over $300 for 1 oz.

    Those are definitely the extrait testers, for their classics. If I had the budget for it right now, I'd be all over that Mitsouko for $125. That's less than half price, even if you don't get the cool bottle.

    Though I have to admit I was a bit disappointed when I found out they're not sold in the little cube bottles, which I think are quite cute...

    Yes, I see these bottles all of the time at my Nordstroms.

    My Jicky and Vol de Nuit are both in these cube bottles, which I actually sort of like.

    It is more common to find Mitsouko, Shalimar and Jicky in this form on eBay. Vol de Nuit and Chamade are much more rare, so I would expect that their ending bids will be much higher than they are right now.

    These are the only extrait tester bottles I've ever seen, in fact. I quite like them - but then I generally like minimalism in design.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    I saw a Jicky EdT tester like that (rectangular) at a Dillard's earlier this year. Of course, they didn't actually have any in stock.
