please pm me items you want in here. so i can keep the format consistant for future reference.
or, post the list No.# , The item with details, and a self name quote. so people can simply search your handle.in future. to see what you found, and what number it is on the list. later, it can be put into a spreadsheet, or a book.
*see the post above.*

Just trying to keep it like a museum catalogue.or Auction catalogue. you know what it mean. :fonz: Thanks guys.

Item no.7 "The Original Cologne" as found by @California Dreamer
It's an empty bottle and box of the original Farina Eau de Cologne (the first ever). The original bottle design was tube-shaped, but had the same style and wording on the label. This one is second or third generation, possibly 18th century, more likely early 19th. Paid (IIRC) $45 for this in an antique market.
Johann Maria Farina invented Eau de Cologne in (where else) Cologne in 1709.


And item no.8 "The 100+ year old scent" (also by @California Dreamer)
This Botttle of Geurlain Jicky

"Guerlain Jicky in the 19th century apothecary bottle, in box. I've dated this to about 1914-1918. It's still good; I've worn it and many of my collector friends have also tried it"

The scent of a past era. A time machine for your senses.
