    Default "Eau de Jolie Madame"??

    Just lucked into this by chance online. Any guesses as to its provenance? I've never seen JM in this format before. Both made in USA.

    Okay, I will say vintage. I was first given Jolie Madame as a gift back in the early 1980s, so I think this one is pre that.

    I know Balmain are re issuing their fragrances as Escentual.com are now stocking the range. Unfortunately Jolie Madame is not amongst them, I did email and ask about it? They said Balmain had not included it in the stock they supplied.

    Thanks Donna! I've seen the re-releases, perhaps there are still enough of the previous reform with the grey label about. I've just never seen the 'eau de JM' version. Will review when I sniff it!

    I have nearly the same presentation but released with a mist bottle for some kind of a Medical Association conference, so there's a date on it. It says "Gift of Revlon. American Medical Association Meeting 1963." In the box there's a foldout that suggests the 'eau de" and mist together was a brand new development. So yours may be pre-1963.

    So curious! What does it smell like compared to regular juice?

    Thanks anomie, that's really helpful... It does seem like a special presentation, and it came from the estate of a 96 year old woman!

    Kumquat, will writeup as soon as I receive it, I am still eagerly awaiting the postman. I had what I think was a 70s or 80s JM a few years back but foolishly gave it away.
