    Default Bottle volumes listed in CC rather than ML

    I wonder if this is an indicator of the relative age of a particular bottle. My guess is that the use of CC was abandoned in favor of ML at some point, meaning that one marked with "cc" would be older than one marked with "ml". (All other things being identical.)

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    What got me curious about this is seeing two vintage bottles of a Givenchy fragrance that are identical but for this difference in how the volume is indicated.

    In many countries there was a shift from cc to ml in the medical and scientific fields but don't know when it happened, so I would guess the cc markings on a fragrance box would definitely indicate an older version.

    That's what I figured.

    ...Now if only the US would shift from Imperial to metric across the board

    I only see CC on vintage versions, like vintage Balmains

    The fragrance in question is Givenchy III, and both examples appear to be vintage. It's probable that the "cc" version is "more vintage" than the other.
