    Darn, this is good straight up from first spray.o n my wrists now, Broke one of my own rules by wearing two things at once. Incidentally the other is Giorgio Beverly for Men on my chest Rooaaarrr!

    Seriously though, it's only a matter of time before HC and also a new new one so I have the full collection to ogle over.

    The 'this is the best barbershop ' train for Worth has probably past before I even started reading and then going BN, but deserves a shout. Soapy, spicy, shaving creamy with a dash of muskiness and leather. It's the sh*t.

    That Iquitos is intriguing, JR. I must get around to trying that one day, it seems to contain every note I love, as long as the rose isn't too overbearing. Papsi's review said it made him feel self-conscious at work, and I'll bet that's no small feat!

    Nice score!

    The opening is certainly potent but the rose isn't overly sweet and is nicely balanced in the base by the civet and leather. I think it would work very well for you

    Chanel No.5 extrait (1980s)

    This is somewhat unusual in that it is not a spray. I'll spare you the details here, but for anyone interested, I discuss the item at greater length in a blog post.

    Interesting find, you little forensic digger, you. I'll bet that "6 ML" designation made your eyes pop out like a Tex Avery cartoon character.

    I've only owned one of the metal-skinned EDT canisters (No. 19, of course), and they just feel so substantial and good in the hand. My "pour le sac" extraits are all-plastic lipstick cases, and I didn't even realize they had ever had metal skins, let alone come in a dab version.

    PS: Does it seem to you that old Chanel boxes are more inclined to get foxing on them than other brands?

    I got an ebay L'Heure Bleue tester from the 70's that was glorious, for under $100. They do pop up. It hung in the air for ages like a beautiful veil.

    Just samples (mostly), but it got me excited - good chunk I've seen about but never tried before!

    Not sure of the difference, if any, of the two Lagerfeld's.

    The volume did jump out at me, although I had no idea what it would mean. The combination of "New York" and "6ml" suggested this might be something new (to me), but no more than that.

    I've only owned one of the metal-skinned EDT canisters (No. 19, of course), and they just feel so substantial and good in the hand. My "pour le sac" extraits are all-plastic lipstick cases, and I didn't even realize they had ever had metal skins, let alone come in a dab version.
    I already had two extrait sprays in metal-skinned cases (one each of No.5 and No.19), so I knew they existed. But a dab? No idea.
    Are you able to remove the bottle from your No.19 canister? I think the later ones (talking about the skinners here) may have been refillable/rechargeable, but I question whether the early ones were.

    PS: Does it seem to you that old Chanel boxes are more inclined to get foxing on them than other brands?
    Yes. For whatever reason.

    The later all-plastic ones are still well-made, but the metal-skinned ones have a weight and a feeling of solidity to them that sets them apart. It's not so noticeable with the little extrait cases, but you can really tell with the 50ml edt/edc cases.

    Thanks, yeah looking forward to trying some out. I'm interested in classic/vintages and some of these I've read about and wanted to blindly buy a bottle - but now I can just try the samples and see what I think. Hopefully they aren't spoiled!

    I'm not sure when that style of bottle was introduced, but I do believe it was the late '80s at the earliest. Also, there's the batch code (PH 40N). I checked the guide to dating Guerlain fragrances on the Raiders blog and came up with 1996 as the year of production. Out of curiosity, I also checked checkcosmetic.net, half expecting to get an Error message. Instead, the result was the same: 1996.

    Well, I may very well be a Grade-A ebay sucker, and it sucks to be manipulated. To my nose, it has the heliotrope, almost gourmand beauty and layered aspect of Guerlain. I'm sure it can't beat a version from the '20s-'60s, but along with my Nahema tester (also probably from the '90s), it radiates craft and quality.

    90s Guerlain is fine as far as I know. I would snap up that L'Heure Bleue for a good price.
