A lovely facebook friend of mine has sadly recently lost her mum. She found this bottle of scent, likely harking from the 60s/70s. She would like to identify it and if possible buy another bottle, for sentimental reasons.

Can anyone work out what it is (and if you know how to track down some more, all the better!)

She would be very grateful.

Oh and she has also said " It smells like a Dior, though when I took it into a shop we thought it might be an older version of Givenchy's Organza. The internet has nothing resembling it."

Any marks or design on the top of the stopper or the base of the glass? It looks familiar to me, but I can't quite place it.

Looks a bit like Estée Lauder Youth Dew, but not sure

The grooves on the bottle and cap remind me of Avon - Cotillion, Unforgettable

You could try sending the photo to fragrantica.com they seem to know everything about fragrance!

It looks like a vintage Miss Dior because of the twisted grooves on the bottle but the lid doesn't look like a Dior lid.

Maybe send the pic to 4160 Tuesdays to see if she would identify it for you.
