    Default Help me date this Jovan Musk for Men

    Hi folks,
    bought this Jovan recently and I'm wondering how old it is. Maybe someone might help me.

    The bottle is 100ml; it's "Musk oil" instead of today's just "Musk", and there's "Jovan - Düsseldorf-Chicago-London" on the bottom.
    Juice color is pale yellow instead of the dark orange of recent bottlings.
    Wearing it for the first time now. Smells a slight bit more raunchy than what I know, but I'll have to wait ... 20181202_100227.jpg

    Hi Roky.
    I'm not quite sure, but I would say maybe early 80s?
    Jovan sold to Beecham in '79, which became Quintessence in '88 and then Coty bought the whole thing in '93.
    Dunno if that helps.

    I'd say very early 80s.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
