Vintage bottle of the original COTY CHYPRE
Extra Large 3.4 ounce bottle
'COTY 11' is moulded in the bottle's base
I know little about and have only a little interest in perfume, so the fact that I picked this up is a testament to my "packratishness" and the power that seeing things out of context can have.
I was poking around in a friends shop/garage, everything there looked like it hadn't been touched in a long, long time, when this clean little bottle miraculously grabbed my attention. It looked so odd sitting there on that dust covered table saw that I decided to take it home.
I did a quick check on the internet and was surprised at what I found. Next time I run across some old perfume I'll take a second look.
I no longer have this bottle but I thought I would post it here, in hopes that someone can provide more information about it. I never did find the exact same bottle to compare it to, most were much smaller.
If you can read the "instructions" on the back of the bottle they might explain why some of the "old ladies" I remember as a little kid smelled "that way". Not just them but everything they owned.
