    Re your Boss Sport bottle. UTIF on the side info is a date clue. That switched from UTIF to UTF at a specific time. ROTLS has more info, but I believe it was a 1990 rule change and all pkgs changed by 1992. Something like that. Cheers, /AC

    Happy birthday, RoRo, and many returns! If this was a scented digital birthday card, I'd be sending you a big fat whiff of vintage Diorama!

Deep Dive Part II - A Closer Look at Chanel Japan

by roro on 1st April 2020 at 06:16 AM
In a recent post we focused on a 1970s vintage Chanel that was purchased in Japan. It was distributed under license by Liebermann Waelchli and Co., which served as exclusive agent for Chanel in Japan for a bit over 10 years, from 1969 to 1980. I mentioned that the LW name (rendered in katakana) on a Chanel fragrance is an almost sure indication that the item was produced during that timeframe. In other words, Liebermann Waelchli on the packaging = '70s vintage (roughly speaking).

A deep dive into a 1970s vintage Chanel

by roro on 26th March 2020 at 01:00 PM
If you have a largish collection of perfumes, especially one too big for everything to be kept out on display, chances are you've misplaced an item from time to time. It's happened to me more than once. In fact, right now I'm trying to figure out what became of an old spray bottle of Chanel No.5 eau de parfum in a goldtone metal case. I sure do want to find that thing.

Sometimes it works the other way, and you rediscover an item you sort of forgot you had. This happened today as I

Eau Libre by Yves Saint Laurent

by roro on 22nd July 2019 at 01:53 PM
Unlike M7, a more recent and better-known flop from the house of Yves Saint Laurent, Eau Libre never did achieve the status of cult classic. I've had limited success finding information on Eau Libre online, which could simply be a function of the fact that it dropped in the mid-1970s and may only barely have survived the decade. I think it's a possibility that had the internet not existed, M7 might have passed quietly from the scene in similar fashion, largely forgotten. But enough about that; let's

Chanel No.5 for the purse (dab)

by roro on 15th June 2019 at 11:26 AM
I'm posting this to give people a closer look at a recent purchase.

So, what would drive me to buy more No.5 extrait? It's not like I was hurting for supply, and this example, which appeared to date to the 1980s, didn't look to be particularly rare. Still, there were a few things that caught my eye.

The box was still in cellophane when I bought it, which meant there was some question as to what was inside. I knew it was a dab bottle, since there was no indication that
