    Default ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE Packaging

    What is the story with this packaging as it is different from the bottles I bought from Luckyscent?

    I guess they have revamped their packaging. Interesting.

    They have recently re-vamped. Several months ago the original images stopped appearing on their website, and I was wondering what was going on so I wrote to them (I'm that sad). They sent me a really kind email saying that change was coming. This looks interesting, but I still love their original images (even though they didn't appear on the actual bottles you bought).

    I think this might be the old packaging. I've seen these bottles showed up on ebay for a long time, even before the launch of their Fils de Dieu which I have in the current packaging (the one from Luckyscents)

    But this packaging has been around for quite some time.

    Agreed. But why the different packaging?

    True. I have seen them for more than a year on this Ebay seller's page, and honestly, they look a bit customized to me.

    I should hope that this is either an early incarnation or that ELDO had nothing to do with it altogether.

    I don't know why, but I somehow felt that this was packaging for Europe or the Orient?

    In light of Secretions Magnifiques, it is very interesting that you used a menstruation metaphor. Hehe

    This. I recall seeing these bottles as far back as 2009.

    I've wonder about this myself, and eventually got a bottle of Antihéroes from that eBay seller. The juice (to me) smells identical to the sample I got from Luckyscent. Found an image on a Blogdorf Goodman post from 2007 of the same type of bottle. She mentions finding it at Henri Bendel...
