Que Sais-Je? was a 1925 launch from the house of Jean Patou, composed by perfumer Henri Almeras. This Floral fragrance has a scent profile of honey, sweet, nutty, fruity, woody, floral, and powdery. 

Que Sais-Je? was a part of a trio of fragrances representing the "three stages of love" - Amour Amour, Que Sais-Je?, and Adieu Sagesse. 

The version offered here is a bottle from the 1984 re-release as a part of the Ma Collection, a limited edition release of 12 of Jean Patou's earliest releases. These perfumes were recreated extremely faithfully to their original counterparts by Jean Patou perfumer Jean Kerleo.

Offered are 75ml/2.5oz bottles of eau de toilette vintage new in the Ma Collection box, sealed with the original cellophane. Cellophane on some boxes is damaged, but still forms enough of a seal that the bottle could not have ever been removed. All boxes are the same lot number as pictured: #8074851, production date of July 1984.  This is an extremely rare find, especially in such exceptional condition!
