SOLD: Vintage Houbigant Yama Aftershave/Cologne - Final Reduction

Post by churchilllafemme » Thu Jun 20, 2019 8:32 pm

I started with the lotion (aftershave) and then got the slightly stronger cologne and ended up mixing them to get more longevity of the fragrance, which I really like. My skin is sensitive to eaux de toilettes and colognes and does not tolerate many of them, but it does just fine with this mixture. So the Yama in the lotion bottle has the astringent and soothing properties of an aftershave but the fragrance duration of a cologne (over 4 hours), the best of both worlds. The cologne bottle is unmixed and definitely is more concentrated. I would like to sell them as a lot because shipping each separately would cost twice as much.

Yama was introduced in 1967 and is no longer available retail. Its fragrance is similar to that of Floris No. 89 (spicy nutmeg top notes, floral heart notes, and wood/vetiver base notes) but with an added somewhat Oriental tone. Unfortunately, for some reason my wife is not fond of the scent, so it must go.

These are in large 8 oz. bottles $40 shipped CONUS for the lot. SOLD

I have edited my first post in an attempt to clarify the somewhat confused description. The nearly full Lotion bottle contains a mixture (about half and half) of Lotion and Cologne, while the half-full bottle is undiluted Cologne.
