My mom's forgotten perfume stash

My mom's forgotten perfume stash 10 years ago
Just got back from a visit to my mother's place. She stopped wearing perfume some years ago. We rediscovered her stash which I've inventoried and photographed. She let me take a small bottle of Chanel No.5 (7 ml. perfume) that was still in its cellophane wrapper and with the price tag of 150 Franks on it.

Any one guess at a date?

How fun! Unopened, there were Belle de Rauche, Cabochard, Magie, Raphael Plaisir, Balmain Jolie Madame, Caron Fleurs de Rocaille, Chloe Eau de Parfum, Jean D’Albret's Ecusson, Ivoire de Balmain and even a Russian perfume, "mojet buite" (I don't have a cirillic keyboard) (Maybe), and three Nina Ricci: L'air du Temps, Farouche, and Premier Jour

I've been trying to find info on everything, which for one or two is a bit challenging.

Wonderful perfumes I only three that you have mentioned.

WoW...what an amazing collection of wonderful fragrances! How wonderful that your Dear Mum had kept them safe and sound! She sounds like a real perfume lover! You will be able to keep them safe and preserved now....Thank goodness they were so well looked after! The price on the Chanel...was that swiss francs ? Does your Mum remember when she purchased it? Hope you can post some nice pics for us to see!

Lucky you! What does Mojet bytj (Maybe) look like? I'm particularly interested in Russian perfume vessels. And Farouche... I adore the scent. Hope it is still intact!

Congratualtions for L'Air Du Temps. This perfume was so lovely some decades ago, and it is completely spoiled today.

I hope your mothers bottle is many years old and still okay!
Yes pictures and 10 years ago
The price I'm sure was French francs.

I'll post pictures when I get a chance, 'cause "bien sûr" I took photos of all of them.
