    Default Vintage Caron Yatagan? Value?

    Hey guys!

    I just found a bottle of Caron's Yatagan and seems to be very old.

    I need some info from le connaiseurs. Is this genuine? When was it produced? What would be its value now?

    Thanks

    Mine looks very close to that but mine is a spray. Can't remember how long ago I got it but I know it was years ago. What are they asking for it?

    This is a true vintage, but it's obviously an used bottle - you can still find a lot of original vintages in unused condition of most Caron's mens cologne's - as well, the last thing I will buy is a splash version which is used - contamination is a huge factor, which will change the condition of the jus...

    Guys, I found this lost in my father's closet. So it's mine

    Taking in consideration the fact that it stayed there, I guess the juice is alright.

    I haven't smelled Yatagan since now, so I don't know if this is how it should smell.

    It has a very classy vibe, that's for sure. I don't see myself wearing this atm

    You've struck GOLD!!! Enjoy...The vintage which you own should be rich in castoreum (& oakmoss)...A classic for sure.

    You're lucky, that's so fascinating! And hopefully still smells great.

    I just bought a BNIB bottle of this, but spray.
    The shop had 2 100ml bottles, I don't know if I were right to buy just one of them...?!

    It looks severely damaged. Unless they ask for 10 bucks, I'd totally pass...

    If it were full & boxed, it would probably be fine but it doesn't look like it's exactly been treasured in the past.

    I agree - this is a ten dollar special or pass type of situation !
