    Default Puzzle: Help me identify these bottles

    A friend has offered me a pick of these bottles. They're from a deceased relative (female) so likely to be a few years old. Apparently there are some masculines in there too.

    Can you have a go at identifying them for me? I don't recognize any of them! This is a bit of a puzzle for the experts here



    Thanks

    10 and 26 - looks like Carven Ma Griffe
    18 - looks like Fidgi
    6 - looks like Madame Rochas
    11 and 31 - 4711
    16 - Nina Ricci L'air du Temps
    28 - maybe a Lanvin
    The green lid to the right maybe Tweed
    1 - could be an old Houbigant
    20 - might be a Mary Quant
    30 - maybe New West by the lid only
    Can you get any nearer or is this what you were given?

    21 looks interesting judging by the stopper
    I ought to know 5/8 and 7/9 (Ysatis maybe for 5/8) (Maybe something like Cabotine for 9 but no!)

    Dang... I have to feed the family and this is my favourite sort of game...

    27 is an old bottle of Marque Noire from Roger & Gallet, 21 MIGHT be a Penhaligon's I can't see enough of it...there are some AVON's in there too I believe.

    Can't seem to pinpoint any that also exist in my collection, so sorry - no help here.

    No clue on any of 'em. Probably a bunch of weird niche stuff.

    LOVE this thread!! Don't recognize any bottles except for a few of those already mentioned: 2 x 4711, 2 x Ma Griffe (at least the caps looks like Ma Griffe) and L'air du Temps.
    I'd like to swap:
    Tauer - Lonestar memories
    Guerlain - Jicky EdT

    Not niche particularly. Some nice sturdy reasonable quality scents from about 1940's to 1980's ish I would guess. Dupe this thread into the guess the bottle threads and you will have more answers.

    Carven bottles, 26 & 10 stand out.

    Same with 31 & 11 being 4711/Muehlins

    18 looks like Fidji

    23 could be a One Man Show or a Sung fragrance.

    I will find out at the end of the week. I'm hoping there'll be at least a couple I'll like and want to use (I'm not a collector)
