    What is the rarest bottle of fragrance you own? (full bottle, not decants or samples). If vintage formulation, please state circa date.

    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:

    "According to Chanel this was created by Henri Robert in 1955 and was launched as 'A Gentleman's Cologne' in the UK, 'Chanel for Men' in the USA and 'Chanel Pour Monsieur' in France. In 1989 it was relaunched with the name 'Chanel Pour Monsieur' worldwide...." More

    Hard to say what constitutes rare, but some that I own are nearly impossible to find anymore,even on ebay. L'Occitane 4 Voleurs, Roger Federer's fragrance, and Ted Baker Endurance are rare gems in my collection that will be gone forever if I ever use them up.
