I am bidding on a vintage new old stock bottle of Cabochard! Can’t wait to see if I get it!
Cabochard was launched in 1959 and instantly became very popular; Madame Gres said that it reminded her of her walks along the long and empty beaches of India: sharp freshness of the morning air, warmth of sandalwood, a touch of flower and comfort of the sea breeze.
A couple of months after it was created the production of Chouda was suspended. The delivered 5 liters of the perfume was most probably worn by Madame Gres herself.
The first bottle of Cabochard was very plane and simple (Madame Gres wanted to minimize the costs), with pharmaceutical top and a grey bow. The Chouda bottle had a green bow.
