    Default Vintage cool water Id help please

    Hello,
    I recently purchased this bottle from eBay. I never had a vintage bottle in the 90s so i have no reference for smell. The initial opening of this smells quite sour..not bad sour just extremely tart and odd comparitively to the bottle of deoderant spray i have to compare. The sourness leaves quite fast..10 minutes or so and then it smells just like im used to..maybe a touch more complex.. More note separation and much longer lasting.
    When putting in this batch code on one of the sites to check dates it says there should be a prefix of letters? I appreciate the help.

    Maybe the top notes have turned slightly since its old.

    Ive searched around trying to find a picture of a lancaster bottle bottom with the batch code etc, and ive only found pics of original bottles. I was hoping someone with knowledge of what a lancaster sticker should look like would confirm.

    I'd guess it's a pre-Lancaster bottle. Make sure you spray out the liquid that's in the tube - that indeed may have "soured" if it hadn't been sprayed in a long time. Let us know if that was the problem, if you don't mind.

    I appreciate the replies.
    Slayerized.. Could you describe the opening notes of one of the bottles you have like this? Do you get a very tart, almost conflicting like opening for a few minutes before it sweetens? Ive never appreciated the opening of cool water in the first place. The dry down for me is as good as anything I've ever smelled.

    It says Lancaster on the bottom and the code starts with 015.........meaning it is from 2005.
    The reading of this code is explained in some older threads.

    All my vintage Lancaster bottles smell the same.....sharp synthetic opening which dries down to what you describe and what vtg CW is known for.......but no off notes in the opening.
