    Default The Smelly Scientist's Strange Finds

    I made a thread about finding a metal vintage bottle of Chanel Egoiste which seemed to garner quite a bit of interest, so I thought I'd share some of the other rare finds I've come across recently. I will update this thread whenever I encounter something worth posting, and will attempt to keep it to items that I haven't had any lucking finding information about online in the hopes that the sleuths at Basenotes might be able to shine some light on these mysterious items.

    Entry #1: Metal special edition bottle of Chanel Egoiste - Vintage

    Very solid metal bottle. Juice smells fantastic. A

    *Mystery solved!

    Apparently part of a travel set many years back.

    Entry #2: Gucci Envy for Men lighter-shaped atomizer and mini set

    Opening the lighter-shaped device reveals a slot to put one of the mini fragrance bottles in. Very slick!

    The other thing I found unique about this particular item is that the juice is a different color than any bottle of Envy I've ever come across; more of a yellow than the typical green color. It's definitely the same juice, though.

    Can anyone help solve this mystery?

    Very cool the last one!

    I have also seen a strange gold bottle of Miss Dior (I think) that looked like a lighter. It was probably some purse spray. Never seen it again on the internet. I guess it was quite rare.

    Entry #3: Super vintage Antaeus 100ml?

    I've never seen a bottle with "Eau de toilette" on the back. The sprayer portion also looks very unique. I wasn't able to find a batch #, but I do see some numbers faintly engraved along the neck. Fearing it was a fake, I gave it a spray--but the juice is legit.

    Can anyone date this bottle?
