    Default Need help picking out gems from a vintage collection!

    I’m allowed to pick out 10 of these for dirt cheap from a family friend and I need help identifying the good ones. So far I’ve identified By from D&G, Gucci Nobille and Eau de Gucci, anything else worth sampling? Thank you!

    Nice! Also, 4 in a row - photos 1 & 2, back row, starting with second from left: Grès Cabochard, Ô de Lancôme, Bugatti (I think it is) and Chevignon. Oh, and photo 3, back row, first bottle from right (or last/no. 6 from left): Romeo Gigli. All true classics

    Take Gucci Nobile! That one is liquid gold on these boards and a good aromatic fougère to boot!
    Also take the Le Roy Soleil Homme by Salvador Dali, it's a good sophisticated fresh fougère fragrance with a niche touch!

    Quite a nice collection! It's unfortunate that it's right in front of a window.

    Go for the Eau de Gucci!

    Interesting....

    Ok, second picture down, far right.... that kind of looks like a Xeryus mini but can't tell for sure. It looks close but not exact. Anyway, if it is Xeryus by Givenchy that's a good classic so grab it.

    Third picture down - far right - that's Bulgari Eau Vert (Parfume) Extreme. It's not real vintage imo... directory says started 2000. But it is pretty rare and getting quite pricy. Unless you are just dead set on grabbing the oldest ones I would pick it, it's not a powerhouse but is quite good.

    Fifth picture down - 3rd from right is the Gucci Nobile as mentioned by ZC. Have to take that one. I had a couple of sets that contained 4 or 5 minis that had it and one other from that pic - the third from left. I think that one is Furyo but could be wrong. I remember liking it but never buying a full bottle of whatever it was. It seems like Worth had a similar mini too but it was blue??? I find it a little surprising all the rest are different, seems like every time I saw those sets all or all but one would be the same.

    So far you could follow all the advice and have picks to spare!!! Have fun trying all of them once you get whatever you pick!

    Be careful, that's Charlie Red, not the original.

    I’d go for:

    Gucci Envy
    Safari
    Eau Belle
    Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au The Vert Extreme
    Romeo Gigli
    Burberry For Men
    Xeryus
    O de Lancôme
    Hugo Boss

    And the first one on the left looks like it could be a Gieffeffe bottle? Or something by GianFranco Ferre? I’d pick that up too.
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.
