^Good info, thanks! Speaking of info for us fragrance fans, i was always quite proud of this threak on Basenotes, about Chanel date codes. For those fellow Chanel fans, please see the attached. There is another about L'artisan codes, I'll post later! basically, it involves counting months after 00 as january 2000, using the etched 4-digit code on the back of your bottles (post-2000 bottles, that is!) http://www.basenotes.net/threads/191773-Cracking-the-Chanel-Date-Code p.s. Going for Caron bellodgia today... one of the world's best carnations.
