Vintage Perfume Finds

Found while rooting around my mother's study: a miniature bottle of French perfumier Roger & Gallet's eau de toilette "Shendy", released in 1970. (They were distributed through Kao Corporation, the chemical and cosmetics giant, in Japan.) The line has been long discontinued and is therefore considered rare, but they seem to be selling for fairly cheap on the internet.

An ad for the perfume.

A very old bottle of Chanel No. 5, so old that the liquids have separated into layers. 

Fidji, by Guy Laroche. This one is still being sold, but considering a warning about chloroflurocarbons (CFCs) in the bottle, this bottle is from before 1985, when the export of CFCs were banned.
