This is the original, vintage fragrance. The boxed extrait has a batch #2459 dating its production (from my research) to either 1950's or possibly 1929 so that it was the initial offering! 4-numbers (very rare) batch code, usually 3-numbers ; (example: 694 or 6018). Perfect to travel with or collect! Please see all my listings for wonderful craft items, dolls, plush and unique finds!
