Thread: Your rarest fragrance
What is the rarest bottle of fragrance you own? (full bottle, not decants or samples). If vintage formulation, please state circa date.
A 100ml Vintage bottle of Bel Ami aftershave splash.
I would guess Dukes of Pall Mall Cotswold or Patou pour Homme Prive.
Although not my rarest, but one of them is my SOTD A*Men. Not the scent itself, but the bottle that I have. I have a 1 oz metal flask bottle, which is impossible to find now. You may find the refills for it, but you likely will not find the metal flask itself in the 1 oz size.
Figured I would add this pic of. For size comparisons, you see my 1.7 oz B*Men, 3.4 oz Taste of Fragrance, and then the 1 oz metal flask of A*Men. YES!! They do in fact exist!

Maybe my 3.2 oz bottle of Chanel for Men by Chanel. Below is the info from BN Directory:
