    Default Can Anyone Date This Bottle of Zibeline PDT That I am Buying?

    I have found a marvelous deal on this 100ml bottle of Zebiline PDT by Weil, but I am not sure of it's age? I was guessing 70's early 80's? What do you think?

    Hi, SG, I got a similar shaped mini of Chunga which was launched in 1978, so I think you are correct. Mine had a different cap, tortoiseshell plastic. The glass bottle itself is identical.

    ps—good luck! I just landed 4 oz, yes, four ounces, of Zib PdT for a song, and IT IS GOOD!

    That's wonderful! Good to hear because there aren't many reviews to read. I found mine on Facebook from a lady clearing out old stuff from her collection. Saw it going for $175 on eBay, but I'm getting it for $40!

    OOOH, you did well! Enjoy this blast from the past. It's a cliché, but they really don't make them Like they used to. This is an aldehydic, spicy civet monster.

    That's sounds soooo nice! I heard they used to spray fur coats with Zibeline. Could you imagine! A fur drenched in that scent?

    I am going to enjoy it as much as I can. It is my bottle I get to buy as a gift to myself even though we are in financial straights right now. I think I told you all about it didn't I?

    Lucky find, congrats! Yes, Zibeline is definitely a warm skin scent. Perfume on furs last forever - obviously, as a fur brand, Weil had all the interest.

    Agreed. I am surprised this company did not do better into the previous century. It must have been what would be considered a niche brand before it's time or ran badly?

    Unfortunately it seems to have gone the way of many companies. Old style perfumes, tastes change, the brand is sold to cheap outfits, product quality goes down. Other brands come to mind (much Balmain, Desprez, etc).

    We had a pass the sample last year on Weil. I must say though that while I admire many of them, for some reason my nose didn't seem to develop love for most of them (with the exception of Zibeline, and perhaps Weil de Weil. chunga too, but it lasts about 5 seconds on my skin).
