    And you say this is a pressurized "atomiseur" rather than a natural spray? I assumed that they were but the ads don't specifically state this.
    Nice detective work grayspoole!

    Thanks for the pics. Looks really nice. I may have seen one of these and simply not known it. It looks very similar to the 89ml bottle. I had thought you might be referring the bottles made with ribbed glass. It's been several years since I've seen one, and I can't even find a photo of one online.

    Vintage L'Heure Bleue in both PdT and bath oil. Then, I'll probably cough up the dough for the extrait.

Me on the other hand, I look forward to having another bottle of original formula one day.
    That's what I'm thinking, too. It probably won't stop me from doing the occasional search for a bottle of the original, though, because I just can't help it.

    It's a beaut, that's for sure.
    But I had no clue as to its age. My only thoughts were, clearly pre-'70s and beautifully crafted.

    I wonder what the motivation was to have a volume of 118ml.

    I had a change of heart on L'Heure Bleue when I tried the parfum extrait.

    That's one that actually makes some sense:

    2 fluid oz. = 59 ml
    4 fluid oz. = 118 ml
    (rounded to nearest ml)

    Update:
    Just pulled the trigger on this one, too. The rarest of the (6 or 7?)PRPH-editions (name appears 1 x and the word 'Paris' at the bottom) and the formula I prefer, and like, the best.

    An under the radar gem, IMHO. Rich and dark with honeyed amber / spices / resins. Unashamedly retro - I have seen comparisons with vintage Zino and would definitely concur. hednic has always been full of praise for this stuff and I now understand why

    Ever had the opportunity to smell a big warmed honey vat? There’s a local honey farm here that has an honor system... you walk into an old wooden barn, drop some cash in a contribution box, and then fill you a jar with either of the two large vats (one unpasteurized and the other pasteurized). It reminds of that. About as close as you can get without it coming straight off the bees’ ass.

    That is what I thought. I find it richer (nicher) version of Zino. Glad I am not the only one

    Have I? Hmmmm. I think I have a sample of it. But I never did get a bottle of it. Although if memory serves me correctly it was not an expensive venture.

    I haven't searched for it because I have a bottle but I think it's pretty hard to find now.
