I should have written "unicorns that are affordable". 🙂
At more than $10/ml, it's not something I'd buy even though I can pull the trigger right now. I was fortunate enough to amass most of my unicorns for much cheaper prices.
I’m with you! And to think just a few years ago these were going for $90 a bottle! Hopefully a few hidden cases surface and flood the market 🙏

A few short years ago Creed Vintage Tabarome could still be found at $10/ml.

A very nice vetiver, closest to Lanvin's in my collection, but without the massive civet that makes the Lanvin such a gem. Here it is dryer and more old school chypes. I really like it, however the longevity is absolutely dismal... Still worth it if found at a real bargain, since the Lanvin is so rare. Maybe the Givenchy which I smelled long ago is a better choice, but true vintages are hard to come by as well for it. Still I should get it to complete the old classic vetivers.

Bday gift. For meself .
Again the Antaeus delivers. It is different from the other ones I have. Antaeus and Equipage both have this feature/bug.
I suppose that is what Creed tried to copy for Aventus ;)

2 bottles of Arrogance pour homme, and a 3 rd still on the way. A underrated scent imo, not original but who cares..? These are from south Italy from a ancient pharmacy wich a good connect/ friend arranged to get for me , and in pristine condition, just perfect. Also its the original formula, rp denis, i also got bottle of 2nd formula, but i wanted the 1st to compare. I never saw bottles with this inscription on the cap tough. love this stuff.

How does is smell? HOw is it different than current version? I have not heard much about Hermes' vintage feminine fragrance (except Caleche)
It hasn't arrived yet, but the original 24, Faubourg is known as a big, opulent white floral over a rich, warm, sensual amber base and is reputed to be a real powerhouse in terms of both sillage and longevity. I tried the current EDT last week and really liked the opening, but it lasted less than a half hour on me so sadly seems to be a mere shadow of what it once was. Screw the current version - I want the real deal, the stuff Princess Diana wore. :)

HB Buddy!
Femme 24 is pretty gorgeous. Have a mid 90 EDP and it competes with Patou 1000.
Be warned though as it is an Orange Blossom bomb.
I am going to wear some to bed tonite!
