    Default Vintage Lot Of 95 Womens Frags; Which Can You Identify?

    Hello,
    I'm 'on the fence' as to whether I should purchase this lot of vtg feminines or not.
    So I thought I'd turn to the community for help in identifying some of the bottles of said lot, since I'm not a coinnoisseur on feminine frags.
    Any help/reply is appreciated. Thanks.
    Martin

    Ok, ok. At quick glance, I see 4 fragrances I want. I guess it depends on the price of the lot. If they want a penny over $100, then just send a link to me.

    Pretty hard to identify anything except Chanel from just an aerial view.

    You do from me! I didn't even notice that 'til I enlarged the photo. And when I did that, I also saw a yellow box of Hermes Caleche at the very bottom of the picture.

    Hard to see how full the bottles is, but depending on the price, it might be worth a risk.

    I detect two 4711 soaps, a couple of Dior caps (CD), an oscar de la renta, possibly a worth (the round bottle with rhomboid label, but can't read the name of the label), the green striped box could be a carven (ma griffe?), and possibly (wild guess) a White linen mini. Based on no information, I am going to guess that the two Chanels are Cristalle and NO 5.

    I noticed those, but I can't think of any Dior femmes that ever came in round bottles like that, only ovals. Can you? Eau Sauvage did at one time, didn't it? But these are all femmes, right?

    I think the Diors are from the Escale series...

    There's several scents that could be relatively new, such as the Chanel, 4711 and Nina Ricci. I think it's a mixed bag. But I'm very sure that at least the upper Dior bottle is from the Escale series. You can just about make out the etched label.

    Default Vintage Lot Of 95 Womens Frags; Which Can You Identify?

    Thank you all! Very interresting, I appreciate it
    I think I see a Hermés-cap in top right corner, and is that a YSL Opium box in the bottom left corner? And a Courréges underneith the RL Safari?
    I'm really tempted, but I don't have any experience at all with femme frags, and knowing myself I'd probably feel guilty having that big box of gems, thinking that someone else with great love and experience of that category would have far better use of them.
    It's from a private seller here in Denmark.

    If the price is right, that could be an occasion to try stuff. Several US BNers would be happy to own that.

    I completely forgot to mention that included is also a bag of 500 vtg samples and decants.. I'll ask seller for more pics.
    Price is 180 $ (1.200 Dkr).

    No brainer. Buy it now.

    Edit: If you sold each bottle for $10, you could easily gross over $500, not including samples. I repeat, buy it now.

    I'm sure after giving it serious thought, you'll do what you feel would be in your best interest and feel good about your decision.

    I agree with others that the price is good. Even if half the bottles are turned, it's still a great deal.

    Yep, buy it now. Evaluate your purchase at leisure, confident in the knowledge that vintage aficionados would love to buy anything you decide not to keep.

    Thanks guys
    Now, IF I decide to purchase then I'll do what few, if any, seller does - the stuff I decide to sell on, I will price according to inflation just for the sake of trying something different (and also giving perfume-lovers a fair deal).

    I distinctly see an upside down heart-shaped stopper Guerlain bottle to the right of a blue bottle towards the bottom of the pic. Could be L’HB. Could be Mitsy. It’s anybody’s guess.
