    Default How to date Antaeus bottles...

    So I have a few boxed vintage Antaeus but Ive always wondered a few things...We all know the ultimate dating cypher is EDT above Chanel. Then we go with the silver top on the cap. Those are considered deep vintage, correct?

    Well Ive read that also anything with a silver sprayer is considered good as well ( the same as deep vintage ). But these bottles have EDT under Chanel. Are these a good buy too?

    Then Ive seen some bottles like the Sport that are considered very good too - smelled the same to me when I sampled it.

    You can have bottles with NO EDT on the front but found on the back of the bottle or even testers with silver sprayers with EDT on the front or back..

    Also Ive seen some with square label/stickers instead of the white printing on the face of the bottles.. weird.

    I almost forgot about the ones that say Spray EDT above Chanel too...

    Bavard is the guru on this, hopefully he pops in..

    My understanding: "vintage" is different but there may be at least two vintage formulations. New (of at least a few years ago) is still an excellent fragrance but a bit different, and certainly more "modern."

    Can anybody else chime in on this? I'm also looking for some info regarding various Antaeus reformulations... although from searching old topics on the subject, it seems as though theres a lot of love for current Antaeus as a more wearable, more versatile version of itself.

    For me any bottle from the 1980s is good juice to own. If the box is available with the bottle, things to look out for are the absent of a recycle symbol and barcode. For the bottle, indicators for an earlier bottle would be any/some/most of the following - a silver cap, EDT above Chanel, some percent % vol under the Paris or New York/Paris, no Paris present in the front of the bottle.

    The only portion that is silver on the top of the black cap where the logo is. I wasn't too clear in my earlier description.

    If there was enough interest, we could do some blind sampling - Antaeus, Antaeus Sport, modern Antaeus, maybe a couple in-between versions.

    Oooh oooh! I would SO be in for that! I can't actually provide anything (yet...) but I would love to be a part of it. Hoping to have a ~2015 era bottle in my possession soon

    That 2015 bottle would be sweet to sample. I'd spring for a bottle of the current for the event, and have a bunch of vintage (1980s, I believe) and Sport (also 1980s, I believe) to share. I would love to have samples from people who bought bottles retail, so we could know with more certainty approximately when the samples were from.
