    Newest Chanel Antaeus 100ml splash bottle, 1980s it appears. Bottle is wedged tight, I haven't had any luck prying it open.

    Tried the latter two, enjoyed enough to get samples again. Code Profumo was mostly alright but wanted to test it in cold weather.

    Looking forward to Tihota the most, looks like something I'll really enjoy.

    Also planning on getting Native Tangerine & Citrus Blossom Body Wash & Free Mini Deodorant (FREEMINI) soon, seems like something that could be good. Also want to get the Sea Salt & Cedar Deodorant next time I'm at the store, smelled super fresh and nice.
    I want to try Tihota too! Grats on the samples.

    Have you tried the freezer trick? Let it get cold a bit to shrink a tad, then try again.

    Distillery Series - New York Rye 3x 100ml

    Cause why not, lol. Smelled like Aventus, about $10 a piece, and it seems to be disappearing/discontinued.
    Might be good gifts or bathroom fresheners or something. Might leave one at work for co-workers to use or if I forgot to apply something, etc.

    I did stick the bottle inside the fridge for a few hours, no good unfortunately.

    From Walmart, yeah. From what it was showing me, only 3 left available (pickup only, no shipping).
    I have a return pending to a PayPal account that's already at 0, so I'd have a negative balance, so I figured I'd just buy these to nearly make it 0 again, haha.

    From what I smelled (one of the kiddos wore it), it's really not bad!

    How about running warm water over the cap? It could just be a little gummed up.

    It's a screw off and on,right? WD40? Let it penetrate for a while and then use a dry rag over the cap and twist away?

    A nice big 8oz bottle of Caron Pour Un Homme Les Plus Belles Lavandes

    Not sure if 8oz is accurate or not. I have a 170ml one at home I can compare it to after it arrives.

    Very nice stuff! OLD bottle as well, likely ~1969 or older, as it has the crown logo before the change!

    Today I got a 100ml of Angelique Sous La Pluie in the mail. I had used up a 10ml over about 4 months so I decided I need a big bottle.

    Longevity is actually better than I remember, I'm having no problem smelling it after 4 hours. Like a lot of Ellena's creations, it is transparent but longevity is actually great if you can tune your nose to it. The first time I tried it I thought it disappeared in 10 minutes, but it was also winter and I was out and about in stinky NYC.

    It's a screw on cap on the splash bottle. If the freezer approach doesn't work I'll consider WD40.

    Tauer - L'Air du Desert Marocain original!

    Came across this original presentation of it, with a box. I had to get it, lol.

    Any idea when he stopped using this and went to the blue bottle design?

    I honestly didn't smell a difference. Since Avon fragrances never cross international borders (legally), they seldom worry about IFRA or the European Cosmetics Commission, so if your bottle is made in Mexico/Canada/US, you're likely set. I just like the older 80's/90's style bottles and there's little price difference.

    Cool, yeah the version I got is made in Mexico. I remember you mentioned that before so I triple checked!
