    A very nice find. Was it a vintage bottle by any chance?

    This was one of those rare occasions where I actually read many reviews here and elsewhere, before purchasing (even though it was only a 25 buck bottle). I usually don't give a hoot what anyone's opinion is because most of the time, I feel the opposite on a fragrance, once I've tried it - most of the time. If it turns out to be a "stinker" I'll just sell it. I don't mind blowing 25 dollars or so on a blind buy. I usually take out 10ml to keep for a decant, before I sell, and most decants I've purchased, of about anything, average 25 dollars. That's my rationalization, and I'm sticking with it.

    I'm not sure! It didn't come with a box. The batch code is 9203, so it could be February 2004, 2009, 2013, or 2018 depending on whether or not the Chanel batch codes reset in 2000 as some people on the interwebs claim. It's still a little over 3/4 full, so I'd guess 2013. This was the only bottle of perfume in the house, so I guess it just depends on whether it was used liberally every day as a signature scent or once in a blue moon for special occasions.

    TL; DR: I'm not sure. But I like it!

    Also jumped on the Rogue bandwagon and the bottles just arrived today. Mr. Cross was also generous with a bunch of samples.
