    Default Re: How many current versions of Mouchoir de Monsieur are there?

    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.

    That's one lucky king!! For that reason alone, I'd love to be king for a day.

    During one of my pilgrimages to the holy shrine of 68, Champs Elysées last year, a sales agent showed me the exact replica of the snail bottle for sale. A reissue of course, complete with red leather case a la Cartier. Unfortunately I can't remember what kind of juice was in the bottle (EDT or EDP?).

    What did Jean-Claude Brialy wear? Extrait, EDT or EDP?

    Very interesting.

    If I owned a bottle of the extrait there is NOTHING that could stop me from tearing open the seal and wearing it. You, sir, have incredible restraint.
