    Default Need help dating and ID'ing bottle design:)

    I acquired this in an estate and can find almost nothing about the fragrance or whether this is Lalique or not. I have done nothing to alter the bottle in any way,ie. clean it, open it, etc. Any advice is appreciated! Tia!

    It looks like the Coty perfume L'or (gold) introduced in 1912 but i don't think it stayed in production long (as compared to some of the earlier coty frags). But as to whether it is a Lalique bottle or not i'm hoping someone with more knowledge can answer that.

    After looking i found a 1916 Lalique bottle for Coty L'Or on Live Auctioneers; posting it here for comparison

    Ooh, I'm envious. Perhaps the drydown of the juice is still ok. It's good to find something from back when Coty was the greatest brand...

    The neck of the bottle smells great! It was stored in a huge cloth bin under a bunch of clothes. I've seen several of the square shaped bottles online, but not the smaller flacon. Thanks for the pic!

    It's listed as a floral/blonde tobacco fragrance. I can definitely smell the tobacco but am not great at picking out floral notes. It's a very warm, rich fragrance. It's similar to Emeraude but minus the sharp green note.

    Thanks! Very interesting. Of course it is possible that after so many years the top florals have evaporated. But the tobacco is still there ...

    I'd love to open it and find out! It's something I'll research first because a serious collector may appreciate it more than I would.

    I have a similar bottle. Look on the bottom of the bottle for a number and then check the bottom of the stopper for a number. If they match, I believe it is a Lalique. You can also check closed auctions on eBay. Good luck!

    slightly off topic.

    I saw the thread title while scrolling on the right side of the page via my phone for latest posts. So... all I saw was "need help dating and ID'ing..." without seeing what forum it was in.

    Lol I thought "what?! You are going for people waaay too young for you, dude!"

    It is definitely a lalique design, probably around the 20's or 30's they were usually sold in metal cases or "caskets" as they were called. They used the same design for all of their perfumes at the time as I have seen the same bottle design for L'aimant, L'origan, Paris and Emeraude
