    Default Help in identifyng vintage Italian perfume from bottle memory

    Hi all, my mother came to the US from Italy in the 1940s and brought a bottle of perfume that I vividly remember from my childhood in the 1970s. The smell was intoxicating and remembering the look of the bottle now I am wondering if it was an ambergris scent.
    The bottle was heavy glass, about six inches wide and four inches high. The color was greenish like sea glass and the form was very thick and naturalistic. The stopper was frosted glass with an image of a whale on the top, which also makes me think it may have been ambergris.
    I've never smelled a perfume like it, and I find it hard to describe but remember loving it. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you!

    Something like this?

    I know the bottle is not green, but it might be a related Rudy fragrance...If it wasn't something local - there were not that many larger Italian brands: Gandini, Adam, Modrone, Schuberth, Borsari, Linetti, Atkinsons, Niggi. You might want to rummage in that database...

    Thank you, that one's not it, but it might have been local, she was from the south. Thank you for the suggestions!

    Congrats on the detective work! Very interesting, didn't know the house. A touch more on the house:

    Note that the brand is mentioned also in the flyer for next week's Osmotheque conference in Paris (which we US guy sadly cannot attend...)
