Hello all,like the title says,I found this whilst clearing out a relatives house.it is 50 ml,amouage cristal and gold,looks to be full or only used a couple of times.leaflet says its gold plated and lead crystal,its edt and dist.in oman.
No bar code on box and only short list of ingredients,is it vintage?what year from?batch code says 399.is it worth flogging?
Cheers!

WOW. Is this for real? Guy Robert, no less! I’m hazy about the history of Amouage. Perhaps someone more familiar with this house could chime in...

Edit: Curiosity got me finally. What does it smell like???

That would be quite valuable, of course. $500-$1000 range on eBay.

Ooh, what a marvel! The "mosque" type of bottle is the first type, before they switched to their current type, so this is vintage. I don't know if there were variations in the type. Marvellous contents, enjoy! Crystal is little known, but it is wonderful. Powdery, rich in ambergris, musks, and what else. It evolved in the first version of Silver (before Silver switched to a plain neroli thing).

I just checked "sold" items on ebay and 3 of the sold went for under £150 ,one even had another gold bit in addition,so I dont feel so bad!! Your $500-$1000 estimate might be a tad optimistic!! Screenshot_2018-04-22-16-51-18.jpg

When I first started buying from Les Senteurs and they sent a catalogue in the late 90s. They sold these style bottles, it was only in the early 00s that the style of bottle Amouage use now appeared.

Okay, I keep some old catalogues and found it, 2000 is the year on it.


Hand polished crystal bottle(from Aspreys, Bond Street, London), 24ct gold embossed flasks.

Edp 30mls £82.50

EDT 50mls £105.00

Hand polished crystal 30mls £170.50


Silver Crystal
New Release

EDT 50mls £105.00

Refill 50mls £74.00

So your one cost £105.00 new.

Possibly you could be more considerate when describing the scent. The term you've chosen is not at all descriptive and is insulting to many.

Waaahhhh!!! Kumquat you are hilarious!
Ok, it is evocative if my grannys underwear drawer.sort of musky,old fashioned,with a hint of moth balls.The sort of thing granny wore to a church bazaar.....
In the 80s
When she had run out of Poison
And was in a BAD mood....
It smelt of old ladies.
There,I've said it again.
Offended???

Mothballs are camphor, so that I understand. The rest is unnecessarily juvenile.

Hmm... I wonder how one acquires such a familiarity to the scent of granny’s underwear drawer?? When I was a wee lad I had much better things to do with my time. :smiley:
