Vintage gem
I was looking for this vintage Houbigant gem and finally after searching frantically i found one (1928 original) on Etsy, full bottle of more than 3.4oz. This parfum is absolutely gorgeous, animalic with very strong musk and civet. The staying power is unbelievable. It lasted slightly more than 24 hours and on clothes lasted good one month. Just amazing, although i am not sure what the 1976 version would perform like. Would like to compare the two if i can get hold of one. Treasure worth cherishing.
