    Here are some threads where the vintage bottles are discussed, including this picture of two of the oldest packagings:

    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/252...urrent-version

    There is a thread where somebody (I think it was Sloan) showed off ALL his Yatagan. Still looking for that one. The picture was a hoot. Unfortunately, I'm thinking it may have been "huddlerized".

    All right Ski, For, Trump,

    Welcome aboard! Man, I had NO idea about "VINTAGE" Yatagan being a "thing". Now, I have (yet another) new goal!

    Nice pickup, SkiDawg! It is such an interesting fragrance. Do you find it more formal or casual, or what are some of your impressions? Don't be shy about posting a picture of your bottle, with the box even.

    And here's my bottle, which I think might be the very first version. It has the rounded cap like the one on the left in the picture you posted.

    Attachment 82400

    I've tried a more recent version, and I liked it just as much. They're different, and the older stuff has a lot of character, but the newer version I tried was a little more suave and office friendly.

    My initial impressions are this is more of a formal, work friendly fragrance. It brings to mind a memory I have of a locker room fragrance of the gym my Dad used to bring me to as a kid in the 80's. It's lasted about 3 hours now and is still noticeable, though not really projecting. I think I'll be enjoying this fragrance and will start adding it to my line-up.

    Modern or vintage? Just curious. I own the modern and have a vintage coming, and agree the modern is work friendly. Not sure what to expect with the vintage as far as strength and general wildness.

    Is it like the one on the right in the picture above, where the box has pin stripes, the label on the bottle is white, and the cap is silver?

    I'm in, too.

    I LOVE Yatagan! When I was just starting out getting into perfume, Yatagan was the first fragrance that made me say, "YES! THAT'S IT! I want to smell like that!" It made me feel like I was a forest fire--flames, burning trees, animals running for their lives. I had the current version first, then I sought out a vintage bottle. Yes, the vintage is deeper and richer, but the current version is excellent too. (The current version of Caron's Third Man isn't as good as the vintage formulation, but I digress...). For me, this is a fall/winter fragrance that is meant to be worn with a bulky sweater. It helps warm you through and through.

    one one of the best things I've read here lately! Brings the "meaty leather" descriptor we often see with Yatagan to a whole new level of resonance.

    Thanks! I should add "smoke" into the mix too.

    Just got a sample of this from Notino (free with my Tam Dao order) - It's certainly interesting!
    Not sure how I'll get on with it but will join in on July 14th, I can see this maybe working in the winter, will reserve judgement till then.

    Hi all,

    I hope this note finds everyone here at Basenotes healthy/well. Well, I'll be hitting a Mile Stone come this Tuesday July 14th. (Bastille Day) 2020. I will (dear God) be turning "Sixty Five" years old. Uggggh. At any rate, I plan to celebrate my Birthday by first shaving using one of my vintage Gillette (A-3 date coded 1955/July quarter) Safety Razors.
    I'll either use my "Red Tip or Flare Tip Super Speed" both A-3 which are now sixty five years old. I'll top of my Shave by wearing the magnificent CARON "YATAGAN" Cologne on Tuesday July 14th. HAPPY YATAGAN DAY!

    I've never tried Yatagan but am intrigued by the celery note that people mention. Bulgari Pour Homme Extreme has a prominent vegetal note described most often as tomato leaf but also sometimes as celery. I wonder if the Yatagan celery note is similar. I initially was put off by it in BPHE but wound up liking it, especially how it interacts with the musk in the deep dry down.

    Yatagan is a celery seed/salt vs. vegetal celery. Very different smells.

    Ah, okay, got it. That would also line up with the "chicken soup" description I've seen, which seems to imply saltiness or savoriness.

    One of these days I'm going to grab a sample of Yatagan just to see how close the real thing is to how I'm imagining it.
