    Default Shiseido Zen Original - Which Year?

    Hello All,

    I bought a 80ml EdC splash bottle from Ebay and need help to figure out when it was made. I checked on checkcosmetic.net but it does not have Shiseido info in their database. The code on the back of the bottle is 50120. Thanks for your help.

    Original was 1964. Re-launch was in 2007 This info from Perfume Intelligence.

    Thanks Hednic.

    I bought a pure mist (spray) bottle a couple years ago and thought Shiseido only reproduced Zen Original in spray bottles, not splash. I therefore bought this splash bottle from a Japanese seller (thinking it was vintage). When I received it, the box and bottle are in pristine condition so I think it's highly likely the reformulation. Saks' website shows a picture of the splash version but only availabe in store (?) and the pure mist one can be bought directly online. Nordstrom only has the pure mist ones. So it seems like Shiseido re-launched both the splash and pure mist in 2007.

    Too bad I gave my sister the pure mist bottle so I cannot compare between the two.
