    Default Help me to solve this Guerlain puzzle!

    I just received a rosebud bottle with a plastic-y screw-on stopper, but unfortunately has lost its label.


    Bought it as empty for below $6, but after I had stopped fondling the other Guerlain, I looked more closely at this one and saw 1 ml or less of a golden liquid at the bottom.




    I'm not so good at describing smells, but the scent has a very spicy(sharp?) opening that is definitely NOT Shalimar or LHB(the only 2 Gs I know as of now).

    Will not try it on my skin because it's only good for one or two or perhaps three wearings at the very most.

    I've seen bottles like this for Apres L'Ondee, Vol de Nuit, Ode, Mitsouko and Chant D'Aromes, although there may be more.

    Any good Guerlain detectives out there?

    Spicy/sharp sounds like Vol de Nuit or Mitsouko... Vol de Nuit (particularly vintage) smells a bit oily, if that makes sense.

    My first guess it Mitsouko. Vol de Nuit (in vintage extrait form doesnt really smell sharp).

    Thanks for both your inputs!

    This is what a review said of VdN:

    "... immediately upon sniffing it, I recognise the strong sibling relationship VOL DE NUIT has with Guerlain's more famous Mitsouko..."


    Which still leaves me hanging...until I receive my bottle of 80s Mitsouko at the end of the week(hopefully) but maybe by next week.

    After smelling the Mitsouko extrait I received yesterday carefully & comparing it with the sliver of golden liquid from the bottle pictured above, I've decided that the latter smells closer to petrol than Mitsouko, and thus, I am the lucky unanticipated receipient of 0.5- 1ml of
