A flacon of Baccarat crystal designed in the shape of an ancient amphora with curved body and a bronze bouquet of flowers sprouting off its top.
That presentation held the parfum and is extremely rare and expensive nowadays.
The parfum version was encased in the previous design flacons with the cap in gold.
And an Eau de Cologne was also circulating in this tall presentation.
Blue tax strips were for export out of the US only, but not all exports used blue strips.
The versions circulating included Eau de Toilette and Eau de Cologne, lighter concentrations than extrait de parfum, but bearing all the radiance and beauty of the original formula., so it becomes much easier for all of our readers.The initial presentation of Diorissimo, created by Edmond Roudnitska in 1956, came in what is known as the amphora bottle.This will usually tell you–within a year or two–when the whiskey was bottled.Sometimes you’ll find two different 2-digit dates in the same bottle.These are the bottles I recall on my grandmother's vanity as a small child.They were splash bottles, a usual design for the era, but there was also the option of attaching a spray mechanism, as depicted in this photo.– If the whiskey was bottled in bond, it will show the distillation and bottling years, if not faded away over time.Bottled in bond tax strips are green; non bonded tax strips are red and do not show the years.Most bottle manufacturers molded the year into the glass at the bottom of the bottle in 2-digit format.You’ll often find it in the lower right portion when looking at the bottom (some dates are much easier to distinguish than others).
