Offered is a 2oz/60ml eau de cologne splash from 1985. The bottle is full, and the liquid is an excellent original color, with no evaporation or increase in viscosity. The box is in vry good condition, although there is a date written in ink on the bottom, denoting this was received in 1985. Samples are made from a contemporaneous open bottle.
Highly recommended to read Grace Arnone Hummel’s exhaustive research on this perfume. All credit to her.
