This was my grandmothers flacon necklace. It still has the original box and pouch.... the bottle is full as well. It's a pretty little bottle. Thanks for looking! :)

    Very nice! Haven't seen anything like them. Do you know the approximate vintage year?

    I have NO clue! If I had to guess I'd say between 1940-1960.... I know that's a big span of time, but I really don't know.

    Hi Tikiray, neat perfume bottle. This is some info I found from a website that sells perfume: Madame Rochas first appeared in 1960 and reappeared in 1989 in its second edition. The nose behind this perfume is Guy Robert, who put aldehydes, bergamot, lemon and neroli at the top. The middle notes are flowery: jasmine, rose, tuberose, Lily-of-the-valley, Oriss root, ylang-ylang, violet and narcissus, whilst the base touches us with sandalwood, vetiver, musk, along with the accords of cedar, oakmoss and tonka beans. First edition represents a replica of an 18th century bottle and is signed by Madam Rochas herself. How does it smell?

    It smells kinda strong to me, not really my style. Thanks for the info! So, this bottle is from the 60's or after. I haven't been able to find any more flacons like this one by Rochas, so I'm not sure of the date. Aldehydes? I studied those in organic chemistry! lol They are formed by the oxidation of alcohols, they contain a -CHO group.... like methanal and ethanal. lol (end of chemistry lesson for the day). Thanks again for the info! :)
