    I have no clue! I'd love to know, too, if there are any Guerlain experts here.

    Just checked with what I have. And the box looks exactly the same as yours and mine is 45-50 y.o.

    I'am wearing a recent April purchase: Chanel COCO extrait. A bargain on ebay. The bottle first made me wonder if it's a fake. But it smells very nice. Probably it's an older version. Does anyone of you know when they started to laser the bottom text instead of crafting it within the glass bottle?

    Pulled the trigger on the parfum of Narcisse Noir. I've been thinking about this one for a few months now, and really couldn't think of enough reasons not to.

    No idea about the laser! From what I remember, the new Coco Extrait is greenish, whereas the original wasn't. The new jus struck me last year at the new airport terminal in Vienna. New store - new testers and they seemed to get a first set of all Chanel extraits too. Smelled terribly good - slightly green, refined and very 'unisex'. Enjoy your purchase, Graphite!

    I've been chasing Narcisse Noir for a long time now and haven't pulled the trigger yet. Is it the modern day parfum or vintage?

    Lately I have been wanting to explore more of the classic Patous, Ma Collection in particular. To that end, I bought a mini of Chaldee.

    Vintage Rive Gauche. Smells beautiful and exactly as it should, the way I remember it smelling ca. 1970s. *happy*

    Love, Chloe, as I can never have too many powdery scents in my stash.

    I've been wanting Ghost Deepest Night forever, but no luck until I came across some carded samples on ebay. It's a wonderful, luscious blend of honeyed mango and vanilla. Like a tropical dessert, but a certain subtle hint of darkness keeps it just short of cloying. Perfect on sultry summer nights.

    It feels like forever since I've bought anything! I found a decant of Kerosene Copper Skies for sale and snatched that up. I love it, but can't really go for a FB right now. The decant will be just perfect.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Alas the modern one. Not as good, but still pretty good.

    Thanks Larimar! So, you think the newest reformulation is good. Das klingt schon ein bisschen ketzerisch. But I am curious now and I will test it as soon as I get a chance!

    Congrats on your new Jo Malone!! I hate to admit it, but I haven't even tried it yet, I saw it on the Neiman Marcus web site and had to order it. I really like Jo Malone fragrances and haven't been disappointed yet. I'm very glad to hear it's a nice osmanthus, I figured it would be, but you never know, lol. Enjoy your new bottle!!!

    Thank you, Kiliwia! To be honest, I don't know if it's a nice osmanthus scent. I've never smelled real osmanthus. It is a very happy and bright scent, though. The citrus is quite distinct. I'll be curious about your opinion once you get it.
