    Default Gucci aftershave from the late 80s?

    Can anyone help me identify this? It's a 7.5 mL sample that I received in the late 80s. I discovered it in a box that had been at the back of a closet, probably since the late 80s.

    It says "Gucci Aftershave" on the front, and "Gucci registered trademarks Scannon S.A." on the back. I can find NOTHING regarding this online. Thanks.

    In my opinion this is the first edition, late 70s Gucci pour Homme.

    It looks like vintage Gucci pour Homme 1976 to me.

    Thanks for the replies. I've been trying to decide whether I like this or not. In many ways, it has a lot going for it. I'll try to describe it, but this is from memory when I tried the scent the day before I made the original post. The opening is a really well balanced blend such that particular scents can't be distinguished, though I can detect lavender. Later, orange became apparent, then faded away. After this though, there was a phase where it smelled heavily of Diesel fuel. This subsided, and the mild skin scent was pleasant and mild. Actually, I can't remember what this skin scent was like. If not for the Diesel scent, I'd say that it's a very well done scent. The Diesel phase makes it unwearable, though. To be fair, I was swimming in a pool earlier in the day that I wore it. I had a fair amount of chlorine scent in my skin that could have disturbed the scent in a significant way.

    I would try it again several more times absent from the chlorine. I don't get the diesel from it. Although my smeller isn't the greatest.

    Best,
