    Default Questions on a Caron lotion : any experience with it?

    I posted this question on the Male Fragrance Discussion and someone responded with the suggestion that I post it here, where there are "plenty of friendly long-term Caron experts".

    I recently snagged a 5 3/4 oz. bottle of vintage Lotion Narcisse Noir.
    What is the difference between lotion and eau de cologne?

    Moreover, the bottle after uncapping it is sealed with a metal seal. Do you pierce the seal or remove it?

    One can read the information on the back of the bottle label through the juice and the glass as in pic #4.

    jdemetre, did you ever crack open the lotion bottle?
    What is your opinion of the lotion as opposed to, for example an EDT or EDP?

    Is it lighter/more transparent, or would you say the Caron lotion holds its own?

    I believe you peel the central part of the aluminium cap, leaving the ring around the neck.

    The Caron lotion is, I think, in a class of its own.
    I only have edc bottles in other Caron vintage fragrances; the Caron edc's are preferable to current edt and edp versions for clarity, strength and longevity. And the lotion version has these virtues more intensely.
