    Default What did I just buy on eBay?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/YSL-COLOGNE-2-OZ...item518fc6781e


    Is this a vintage bottle, a vintage fake, a new fake?

    Did YSL ever make a Rive Gauche Cologne, or a 2.0 oz size, or a bottle? I wasn't able to find any matching photos, but the price made me think it was worth a shot. Unfortunately, I couldn't check here before purchasing for obvious reasons.

    Can someone shed any light on what I turned my nine bucks into? Any help appreciated...

    I think this is the vintage version of the Rive Gauche for women. I am basing my inference on the turquoise color on the bottle and box.

    hahah @ buying a women fragrance. ask the seller if it is infact a male fragrance.

    I am unfamiliar with this particular bottle but the colour of it seems to indicate it is the women's one. I must say that the bottle looks really sweet and vintage.

    That being said, I think you can take it up with the seller if you felt that there has been misrepresentation. It did say "Men" in the description. But I think you ought to be real sure first, and hopefully someone who has knowledge about this particular make can chime in.

    Odd looking bottle, definitely not the mens one though!

    I can confirm this is a vintage womans Rive gauche in EDC concentration, as I own a 3ml mini of this exact bottle.

    Mum has had this, and has had it for over 20 years! Last time i tested it was still good. I certainly haven't seen this in the shops or anywhere else.

    Look at it this way: you just bought a collector's item.

    It's a great summery aldehydic floral with a green mossy-vetiver base and a classic thirty years before the men's version. Lot's of guys love it. Try it out... if you don't like it, pass it on.

    Thanks, everyone. Yes, I knew that it was likely the women's version based on the color-scheme of the box. I already own the men's version. Now my only worry is whether the juice is original or if it was refilled - but that seems highly unlikely for such a cheap auction. I'd think that if the seller was trying to fake a vintage scent it would have been set up as an auction to drive the price up.

    I agree. You got a good one. This is the vintage women's version of Rive Gauche EDC, probably very difficult to find these days. This fragrance is special for me, because back in the '80s I had a really beautiful girl friend I was very much in love with and she wore this as her signature scent. I never forgot her or her fragrance. And it is a very nice fragrance! Congrats!

    So the bottle above is at the heart of this discussion - but what do we know about this vintage one?
