    Default First Jazz Vintage bottle?

    Hi,

    Is this the first YSL Jazz vintage packaging/bottle?





    Thanks in advance,

    Damn that bottle looks very cool - very jazzy indeed.

    It's a shame that they have repackaged (and repackaged again) that fragrance.
    I can, however, see how they might have felt that the bottle looks a little 'gimmicky' (although nothing compared to the real gimmick frags), and they'd hate for such a nice fragrance to be lumped in with the Diesel OTBs and 1Millions of the world.

    I really like that bottle a lot, thanks for sharing.

    I think it's the first. Not absolutely certain though.

    It's march 2003, but the most inusual thing is... that's a bottle produced in France, stamped for USA (YSL Perfume Corporation), and aimed for the italian market, ("LCR Rome import for Italy")

    But the most strange thing is another: an Eau de Toilette in splash version produced in 2003?
    I guess it's one of the famous/infamous "rebatched bottles". It means this is a bottle from '80 put in a newer box during year 2003.
    Check the bottom of the bottle : it's HIGHLY probable there is NOT the same "3004" batch code you can see on the box. Maybe there is no code at all!

    Don't panic: the bottle is original, and juice too. They put an ancient bottle ina new box. Year of production is NOT 2003, but earlier.

    That is what mine looks like as well. I wish it were a spray bottle. I would have reached for it more often then.
    Regarding the production date I would be surprised if it was later than 1998. That's the year when Live Jazz came out, they decided to use the same spray bottle for both, and the two boxes were made to complement each other.

    Well, according to checkcosmetics.com the "3004" code on the bottom states that this is a bottle made in 2013. Could it be that this is the new Jazz bottle?

    Or, maybe the site just made a mistake.. dunno. Check it out.

    I miss the vintage JAZZ -- one of my father's first colognes that got me into this hobby.

    The juice is very similar to the original Tsar!

    What is your opinion on the similarities?

    These codes repeat every 10 years that is definitely an original bottle probably 93 year. Here is my early vintage , notice only basic ingredients on back

    Yes that looks like the vintage bottle of Jazz- the first version.

    Jazz and Tsar certainly have a lot of similarities except that Tsar has a lot more green notes.

    If not THE first,then very early. This is what the bottles/packages looked like when I first saw the scent around Christmas of 1988. Great stuff, and yes I see the similarity with Tsar by VC&A.

    Has the juice changed any?

    Very Nice! I miss my vintage bottle. It was a splash. Used it up in the 2000's

    Yes it is. I used to have an exactly same bottle back in the 90's. It is a classic one. Nice find there!

    I have this bottle, also a splash. In the backside of the box, it says only: Contains: Alcohol Fragrance. There's a bar code in the box and the serial number is 2107.
