    Default Eau Sauvage: Old bottle design question (EdT formulation).

    First, does anyone know when the latest bottle design appeared (and also when they switched over to the magnetic caps)? I recently acquired a vintage spray bottle (100 ml), the "tall" one with the vertical ribbed sides and the silver cap that is wider at the top. I looked up the code, but on the Check site but it's got to be wrong, as it's more than a few years old (the code is 4694). The box does not have any ingredients listed, but does have an old style bar code (no batch code on the box), there is an "e" estimation symbol, and the Dior address begins with 33, not 30. There's no label on the bottom of the bottle (it's got that big silver label on front with the information, in black lettering), but there is the number 6 raised in the glass, probably the bottle manufacturer code, the batch code, and a triangle also raised in the glass with some sort of symbol inside (similar to what is on the bottom of a vintage Knize Ten bottle I also acquired recently). According to the Raiders of the Lost Scent site, there should be no 4694 codes, so I'm curious as to what year this could be from. Barcodes apparently date to 1990 and the short list of ingredients begins in 1998, so my guess would be somewhere in that range, likely 1994, since the batch code begins with a 4. Thanks!

    I can only say that the "new" packaging (white box instead of "woody" one) and the "standard" 100ml spray bottle appeared in 2004, for sure.
    Never seen the 100 ml "tall" spray bottle after 2004.
    in this picture we can see a bottle batched "9J01" = 1999

    My last "tall", I believe they're called fluted, bottle was in 04 as well.

    I suppose you've already surmised this, but given that batch codes repeat, I would assume that your bottle is from the 1990's... To address your other question, I'm pretty sure the magnetic cap was introduced with the relaunch (2010), which is also (I think) when the Eau Sauvage Extrème Concentrée was reinvented as an 'intense' flanker and, by all accounts, changed somewhat dramatically. I had a bottle from 09 (white box, oakmoss on ingredient label) and it was actually quite weak and fleeting compared to the two or three magnetic cap bottles I've acquired since 2014.
