Monsieur Rochas, Rochas. 1969. Guy Robert.
Totally agree with you. It's been a few months I'm searching for vintage After-shaves corresponding to the Eaux de toilette I already have. Sometimes comes a "kit" as you say, and if the price is correct, it's a no-brainer to me, because of the kit itself, but because I know I will enjoy it twice: first after shaving, and then when spraying Eau de toilette a few hours later.Another of those sweet little travel kits that you're developing quite a collection of.
When I was a kid I had a powerful attraction to anything that described itself as a "kit". I sent away for magic trick kits, chemistry kits, ant farm kits, sewing kits, model building kits, painting kits, greeting card sales kits... if it had "kit" in its name and came in its own specialized container, I wanted it.
I guess I've never really grown out of it, because I'm still drawn to perfume coffrets that describe themselves as kits. My most coveted Eau d'Hermes item is this travel kit that I've never actually seen for sale in the wild, only in archival pictures:

I fantasize that the gold-capped bottle is the mythical "Grande Eau d'Hermes", one of the long-lost Roudnitska creations.
Interesting thought, thanks.I wonder if this bottle is from 1993 ; I may be wrong but it's probably older as it' an atomizer and not a natural spray ...
Atomizers were made before natural sprays.Interesting thought, thanks.
I'm going by the batch code 39100, which checkcosmetic.net has at 1993, but checkfresh has at 2020 (code repeated every 10 years).
I don't know about dating by atomiser v natural spray.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Superb dry-down on this by the way.
I own a tester bottle same as yours but more recent (it's a natural spray) and batch number (difficult to read because partially erased) has 6 digits !
