Topic: Very old bottle of Chanel No 5 Cologne
Hey guys. I purchased a Vintage 2 oz bottle of Chanel No 5 Cologne from online not long ago. The box is AMAZINGLY well kept & it did not look used at all. & most importantly IT SMELLS DIVINE!!! I am baffled as to why the seller got rid of this?! @ any rate, I was more curious is to the price tag on the box which was $11! So I know this had to be pretty old. Well I took it to some Chanel experts to see what they can tell me about it because it has no year when it was produced. When I showed it to them & they looked @ the price on the box they sad WOW! This is old!
They took of the cap & smelled it & was stunned that it has kept it's age VERY WELL! I let one lady dabble a little on as she mentioned she had great memories with her grandmother & this perfume. So I asked could they give an estimate on how old my bottle was & a few of them said it has to be from the 1920-40's era judging by the shape of the bottle & the price of course. They all smiled & said you have a real gem!
I am very happy with my purchase, but @ first I was a bit nervous as I do not buy Cologne concentrations due to poor longevity, But this last like an EDT! So I will be doing a fragrance review on youtube of this wonderful frag & will come back to this thread & share the link when I do! Does anyone else have Chanel No 5 in the cologne concentration & would like to share there thoughts? Please do!
