1903 Vintage Cologne
1903. I was browsing in a Paris antique shop one winter afternoon when a fitted leather train case caught my eye.
It contained silver-handled brushes, boot hooks, a straight razor, several silver-stoppered glass bottles.
One bottle was different. Encased in yew-wood, with a handwritten date: 1903.
The detective work was impressive. So is the thing itself. Women like the way it smells on a man. Like a symphony that begins loudly, then soon slides into subtle, entangling developments that grow on them.
Or so I’ve been told.
1903 Vintage Cologne (No. 1400). In a wood-encased bottle like the one I found in Paris. 3.4 fl. oz., 100 ml. Made in USA.
