This is an amazingly large bottle of cologne made in Paris. It is a nearly
full 16 ounce sized bottle of Christian Dior Eau De Cologne Diorissimo. This is one of a collection of cologne and perfume bottle I recently acquired from the estate of a perfume rep for Jean Patou. She had a hundred bottles that were sold to high end department stores and Duty Free shops in 1974. Many are in perfect condition others are factices.
This bottle 's contents smell intense more like perfume than cologne. I think this is from years in cold storage. The bottle stands 6 1/2" tall, 5" wide. It has the checkerboard cap with is soiled and the label which has staining. The neck has the signature black ribbon bow. Used in very small dabs this cologne is still viable. The contents are more saturated to a mild syrup color. Very nice piece for a bottle or perfume collector.

The retailer in me wants more dimension, color, texture and artistry. Beauty or whimsey are a must.
