    Yeah, it was a good one and actually the 50 mL bottles are relatively inexpensive on ebay.

    Un Jardin Sur le Nil today. Might as well use up my market find. Smells great; no great deterioration that I can detect.

    ^^ You find the best deals. What kind of market has used perfumes? Are these flea markets or estate sales or something like that?

    The ones I post here I generally find at a big flea market, or at antique shops. Occasionally I'll find something nice at an op shop (or thrift shop in USian).

    I left out the best find, because I didn't think you guys would know it. I found a full 50ml bottle of Prue Acton If EDP, in box. I did some research about this yesterday, and found this comment on Fragrantica:

    In the 60s-70s Prue Acton was a leading Australian fashion designer. Between 1969-1976 she produced a line of fragrances manufactured in Melbourne. These are rare enough today to be considered museum pieces - the Museum of Victoria, for example, has several in its collection. I'd kill for a bottle of Prue Acton anything!

    I'll hold off opening it until I find out how rare it really is. Doesn't seem that special according to some ebay prices, so we'll see. I contacted the person I quoted above to seee if she can tell me more about it.

    Prue Acton was a famous designer here. She designed the Australian team outfits for the Olympics during the 80s, but her cosmetics business crashed in the 70s. My bottle could not be any newer than 1976, when her cosmetics business folded.

    @Horns & @California Dreamer, did you like Blue Santal? I wasn't overly fond of it but I've only worn it once.

    I don't mind it; it's pretty full-on wood to start with but I found it settled down OK. I got mine very cheap on eBay and decided to chance it because my sister is a huge sandalwood fan, and I could've always passed it onto her if I didn't like it. I will keep it though, at least for now.
