    Smile How old is this Coty Emeraude?

    Hi! Can anybody tell me how old this

    http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    Coty Emeraude is? Is it of good "vintage" quality or is it the stuff they sell at drugstores today?

    Thanks for your help!

    I wish I could help you, but I've never seen that bottle before. The cap looks newish and drug store'ish, so I would say it's not vintage, also the color seems a bit light. I don't know, Magoylyn, it's always a gamble on ebay. Perhaps someone else will weigh in as well.

    I bought a full .25 oz. bottle of vintage Émeraude parfum at a thrift store last week-- the bottle looks the same as the one in your listing (and the color of the perfume is exactly the same) except the color of the cap is emerald green, like this one:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Coty-Eme...ht_2433wt_1167

    The bottom of the box reads:
    COTY DIV. PFIZER
    N.Y. N.Y. 10017
    850-1499

    Maybe you could ask for another photo-- in case the lighting was making the cap look lighter green? But then, if that is the case, why would the juice color be correct? Hmmm....

    Another thing: the price seems out of this world. Can it possibly be worth that much?

    Thank you so much for your answers!

    @kumquat: the new and cheap Emeraude is not available in Germany. I guess the seller hopes to gain lots of money...

    This is a good one (there may be others). It is 1/4oz Parfum. That is too bad about Germany. I hope you can find some at a reasonable price. Don't give up, but don't waste $ on the cheap stuff!
