    Bleu de Chanel

    I like it, it's my office work and every day scent. I've gotten 4-5 compliments from ladies already since I bought this on thursday. It's not mind blowing but it's a great scent and sits extremely well on my skin.

    I dared to buy this vintage bottle of Shalimar. But that is as far as I can go. Its easily a unisex fragrance! All there is left for Guerlain to do is to change the marking to unisex.

    Okay... This is as far as I can go. lol. Another "should've-been-marked-as-unisex"-fragrance. Vintage bottle from the early 80's: Mitsouko by Guerlain.

    I know all those concentration has different aromatic compounds, but does it matter in the long run which you choose? I mean, does the EDC evaporate faster than lets say EDT?

    They were in circulation as the standard EDC bottle from 1966 - 1977 in the black and white zigzag box, and into the mid-late 80s in the gold box.

    while it's still relatively easy to find pre-the-latest-reformulation bottles. The latest formulation is thin and weak.

    Today my Guerlain DJEDI arrived! I don't think I've ever been more excited about a perfume purchase! This is one that will become a family heirloom!

    This is the exceedingly rare quadrilobe Djedi presentation issued in Baccarat crystal (80ml), with gold tooled suede flocked box with cream silk lining. There is approximately 30ml of vintage extrait decanted in the smaller bottle, which is spec-tac-u-lar!

    Congrats Dimi
    Thanks Gents
    Pour Monsieur, I think in this instance it was just finding myself perusing the right website at the right time. This was vastly undervalued when I saw it online, so I pounced, with heart hammering in my chest. And then of course, I had the nail-biting week whilst it was in transit to endure, but I am thrilled to have it arrive safely and find it in the condition it is in.
    Nothing I can think of can quite compare. Seriously, nothing. I've smelled the reissued Djedi which many will be pleased to know is very true to the vintage version... but in some way, the antique blend just seems to have frozen a precise moment in time, long, long ago.

    Tabac EdT or EdC? Both are good, but the EdC beats the EdT.

    I bought this one today. I tried it on at a perfume boutique, asked some girls if it fitted good on me without telling them that it was a feminine marked fragrances and the answer I got was "YES!". Coco by Chanel - a beautiful "should've-been-an-unisex"-fragrance. For those of you who havent tried it: Try it! I really begin to get a wider view of fragrances thanks to this community!

    Coco Chanel EDP.

    Thanks for the reply but so far you seem to be the first person on the web to have noticed an difference. It would be very interesting to hear the impressions of some more people knowing both versions of Kouros. I really hope that it just was just your specific sample that had the power-issue, you were reporting.
