the extract version is only made for the King of Spain--the E de P version has only been made for me twice--and I had to order 1000ml each time to get it--it takes about 6 months--and you sort of have to know....someone "of importance" chez Guerlain for them to make it. I got a 120ml ground glass stoppered bee-bottle of the extract in 1983--I still have about 30ml of it left. What's in the snail bottle is the extract: That's why it's brown. If the SEAL is still on, there's a good chance it hasn't turned. I own one of these, in its original red leather case: I've never broken the seal, so i don't know what state it's in. The snail bottle is the ORIGINAL bottle, designed expressly for it, in 1906: This fragrance was part of a set, it's mate was called "Voilette de Madame," (Madam's Veil) and they were conceived as a wedding gift to a family friend of the Guerlain family. This snail bottle will surely bid at over $2K US--as they are highly sought after--especially if their seal is unbroken.
What did Jean-Claude Brialy wear? Extrait, EDT or EDP?
"Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about, talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in — or don’t, as the case may be. It makes no difference. Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life."
-- Eckhart Tolle
