    Default Diorissimo

    Hello!

    I just got a bottle of Diorissimo and I was wondering which year is from. Perhaps you can help me for I have found nothing on the internet about it.

    Here is a picture of the bottle:

    112 ml or 3.7 fl oz , No code on the bottom.

    Thanks!

    I don't know the exact year, but the houhdstooth motif is vintage, starting a few decades ago.

    If in good state, this must be wonderful, I love vintage Diorissimo, with the civet and all the rest. Enjoy!

    Edit: Perfumeshrine comes to the rescue:

    The houndstooth bottle with pink oval label appears to be a later form of the houndstooth classic, and is dated late 80s to early 90s, before LMVH takeover. Vintage, and good.

    Does it smell properly? Many of these vintage non-atomiseurs are faked /filled with fake liquid.

    Thank you for you answers!

    Yes, it does smell good. A bit rancid at first, only for a few seconds, but after that it is ok. Just like it should be.

    I had a bottle that looked like this. I bought in approximately 1971. Don't know how long it was produced in this bottle.

    Nice find!

    from perfumeshrine.com

    The classic houndstooth design established itself in the end of the 1960s, the 70s, all through the early 80s. The juice appears darker than it was in real time, because of oxidation due to the passage of time. The versions circulating included Eau de Toilette and Eau de Cologne, lighter concentrations than extrait de parfum, but bearing all the radiance and beauty of the original formula. These are the bottles I recall on my grandmother's vanity as a small child. They were splash bottles, a usual design for the era, but there was also the option of attaching a spray mechanism, as depicted in this photo.

    for swap/sale:
