Lazy weekend at the Vintage Perfume Vault!

Dreaming of summer has left me somewhat uninspired to do much posting this week... here is a 1970s Echt Kolnisch Wasser Doppelt, Johann Maria Farina's No 4 recipe original eau de cologne in a rather plain bottle and on the right an unusual (to me) decanter style bottle of 4711; the stopper is lucite or plastic and the paper label is all but gone.

My personal favorite of the great vintage chypre, this one is a spicy floral version with lovely plum and peach accents: Rochas Femme.

Fabulous Chanel soap eggs, a delicious way to smell vintage No 5; they provide extra creamy, dense lathering and in my small hands, a perfect fit!
Spring vacation is only 10 days away and I am awaiting several shipments of old books and a couple of other surprises (to share with you all!)
The Vintage Perfume Vault; where the vintage vogue lives.
