Vintage 1980s Red Door by Elizabeth Arden 0.38 oz Eau de Toilette and 2.6 oz Perfumed Body Powder.

The powder was opened but not used, apparently I am allergic to it and it makes me sneeze.

The mini perfume is about 50% full and still smells good, as does the powder. Both are old and not as fresh as they once were.

Created in 1989, Red Door is a classic, elegant signature fragrance, a symbol of glamour and luxury, inspired by the famous Red Door Spa center.

It opens with ylang-ylang and red rose, at its heart; orchid, jasmine, lily-of-the valley, orange blossom, wild violet and freesia. The base is composed of honey, sandalwood and vetiver.

Shipping from United States

Please contact me immediately if your shipping address is different than the one posted on Etsy. In the event that you do not provide a correct shipping address and your package gets returned to me, you will need to pay for shipping again in order for it to be shipped again. NO REFUNDS will be made for items that are returned due to this problem. I will hold your items until such time as a you provide a corrected shipping address and payment for re-shipping is made. A special private listing will be set up for you to pay for shipping, once this is paid for, another shipping attempt will be made to the corrected shipping destination.

For my USA buyers - I ship via USPS Priority Mail with insurance (it also comes with a tracking number). I will combine multiple orders to save you on shipping costs.

For my international buyers - Regarding the transport insurance the actual value of the content of the package is specified to the shipping company.

Buyers are responsible for additional costs caused by import/shipping that is levied by the various authorities in their own country. Import duties, VAT and other possible (tax) charges fall outside the responsibility of me and are the responsibility of the buyer. The buyer is personally responsible to inform themselves in advance of the charges levied in the country where the package is to be dispatched at the request of the buyer.

---Please be aware that Etsy is giving shoppers "MARK AS GIFT" option at checkout. This ONLY means no invoice will be included in your package. It does not mean it will be gift wrapped. It does NOT mean you are not responsible for VAT and other import taxes if you are outside the US. By the laws of your country, you are still responsible to pay these. I, or Etsy, cannot illegally mark an item as "gift" to help you avoid these taxes. Also, for international orders, the price of the item and description are on the package itself on the shipping label. Due to import/export laws, we do not have a choice in that. Your recipient will see that value on the package. Very sorry for any confusion Etsy's choice of wording may have caused.



I will combine multiple orders to save you on shipping costs. As an eco-friendly shop, I don’t include an itemized invoice unless requested and I use a combination of new and clean, recycled packaging materials.

---I cannot be held responsible for mail service delays, customs hold ups, or damaged parcels since they are beyond my control once the parcel is shipped.

---I cannot be held responsible for accidents and damage caused by broken glass/ceramics, etc. or for accidents/damage resulting from the transit and during unpacking. I am not liable for alleged consequential damages to the object caused by the purchaser or a third party.

----In exceptional circumstances, it is possible for a sealed bottle to leak during air transportation. This leak is caused by the difference in air pressure in the airplane cabin during the flight. I pack my bottles very carefully, providing additional protection to stoppers and bottlenecks and as a precaution cover labels with plastic and tape. However, if spilled perfume may still cause damage to a label - or something else - I cannot be held responsible for this.

REGARDING FRAGRANCES:

About vintage and discontinued perfumes: If you are searching for that long lost or discontinued perfume of your memory...old perfumes do deteriorate with age.

Perfumes over 3-10 years start to lose their freshness and may start to smell like alcohol. Certain ingredients and compounds will break down and "turn" faster than others. The older the perfume, the less it may smell like what you may remember.

Let's examine the DNA of a vintage perfume and how it ages.

The top notes of the perfume, the notes you first smell usually deteriorate the fastest. Some of these are:

-----Citrus scents such as bergamot, tangerine, yuzu, neroli, grapefruit, lemongrass, verbena, citron, petitgrain, orange, lemon and lime.

------Synthetic chemicals such as aldehydes, ozone and aquatic (marine) notes

------Fresh, delicate florals like lily of the valley, iris, orchid, violet, osmanthus, and , cyclamen, freesia, lilac, wisteria, peony, narcissus.

------Fruits: raspberry, litchi, strawberry, apple, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, pear, peach, guava, apricot, watermelon, coconut

However, after the top notes wear off, the middle and base notes are often still fragrant and good smelling. Examples of heart/middle notes:

-------Dark fruits such as raisins, plums, cherry, prunes, blackcurrant, fig, mulberry.

Heavier and more pungent floral scent such as rose, jasmine, orange blossom, carnation, geranium, ylang ylang, frangipani, heliotrope, tuberose and gardenia often fare better than their lighter counterparts found in the top notes. Also vegetables and herbs such as celery, carrot, lavender, sage, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, mint, basil, angelica

Base notes often remain in the best condition. These were used as fixatives to make a perfume last longer and have the best shelf life.

--------Precious woods: sandalwood, macassar, oud, cedarwood, palisander, rosewood, cypress

--------Plants, roots and grasses: tobacco, orris, vetiver, oakmoss, patchouli, violet leaves, juniper, heather, wormwood, anise, caraway, ginger, pepper,

--------Spices: cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cardamom, cumin

--------Resins and balsams: frankincense, myrrh, opoponax, olibanum, and copal, styrax, galbanum, tolu, Peru, cistus labdanum, vanilla, tonka, benzoin.

--------Animalics such as leather, civet, ambergris, musk and castoreum.

If you are looking to buy fresh smelling perfume, please don't buy vintage or antique as in most cases the scent will have changed!

How a fragrance was stored will affect how it smells today. If the fragrance was stored in a cool, dark place, it should have fared well. But, since many people who sell perfumes today, such as myself, we often get perfumes second-hand - through auctions, estate sales, yard sales, thrift shops, friends and family or other venues. I cannot vouch for how a perfume was stored before it came into our hands, so buyer beware. I try to tell my buyers if a perfume has soured top notes, etc right in the listing.

Due to the delicate nature of perfume, I am sorry but I cannot offer refunds for ANY perfume, especially vintage, antique or discontinued perfumes.



PERFUME REFORMULATIONS

Please take into account that perfumes often go through reformulations over the years due to rising perfume ingredient costs or regulations (such as IFRA) on allergens or chemical toxicities, and may not smell exactly the same as what you remember. These reformulations are not always disclosed to the public and I may have no way of knowing whether a perfume has been reformulated or not. Packaging and bottle changes are often clues that there has been a reformulation, but not always.

OTHER ISSUES:

I am a non-smoker but I often buy all of my perfumes at estate sales, auctions, yard sales, thrift shops, etc, so they are used, I do try to clean the bottles as best as I can if they smell like tobacco smoke. I try to wipe down all perfume bottles before shipping so your bottle will be clean and shiny. Also, I foster kittens from a local animal shelter and do have three adult cats in my home. The occasional stray cat hair might find it's way into a package once in awhile.

Please contact me immediately if your shipping address is different than the one posted on Etsy. In the event that you do not provide a correct shipping address and your package gets returned to me, you will need to pay for shipping again in order for it to be shipped again.

PERFUMES

About vintage and discontinued perfumes: If you are searching for that long lost or discontinued perfume of your memory such as Styx by Coty. Please remember that perfumes over 3-10 years start to lose their freshness and may start to smell like alcohol. The older the perfume, the less it may smell like what you may remember. If you are looking to buy fresh smelling perfume, don't buy vintage or antique!

We cannot vouch for how a perfume was stored before it came into our hands, so buyer beware. I try to tell my buyers if a perfume has soured top notes, etc right in the listing itself.

I sell antique and vintage perfume bottles that may or may not contain perfume. Because of their age and have been previously owned (sometimes I can’t determine if the contents of a sealed bottles are original because I do not open sealed bottles), I offer NO guarantee on the content or (absence of) smell or originality of the perfume. This is most certainly also the case for perfume bottles which are sealed! When you ascertain abnormal smell, absence or change of a scent, I will in every case not take back the perfume bottle or make a refund.

Many of the pictures in my listings are taken indoors with a light tent with artificial lighting. Therefore colors may appear different than in real life. Please note that colors may appear differently on different computer monitors and is unavoidable. In any event, I do my best to display true color on every photograph

PERFUME SAMPLES

I am cleaning out my sample boxes and selling many of my vintage, hard to find and discontinued perfume samples. Most of these are manufacturer's samples and may have the words "Not for Sale" on the card as these were promotional items from the manufacturer at the time of release and were not intended to be sold by the original retailers. However, I have purchased all of these second hand items over the years to do reviews on them for my website. Now it is time for someone else to enjoy them. All samples have been tested at least once in order for me to complete a review on them.

Samples are intended to give you an idea of the fragrance before you purchase a large bottle.

There are absolutely no refunds or exchanges on perfume samples or miniature perfume bottles.


FRAGRANCE MINIATURES:

Miniature perfumes are generally under 3" tall. Micro minis are under 1" in height. All fragrance miniature bottles (mini perfumes/colognes) on my site are being sold as collectibles only. Fragrance miniatures were often sold along with larger bottles by the manufacturers as gift with purchases and may have the words "Gift Not For Resale" on them. Please understand that I do not test any of these and do not sell them for the fragrances contained in their bottles as these are old and most of the time they have turned and are no longer wearable. There will be no returns accepted on these items.

Do You Accept Returns on Perfumes?

Due to the delicate nature of perfume, I am sorry but I cannot offer refunds for any perfume.

My shop specializes in antique and vintage collectible perfume bottles that may or may not contain perfume. Because of their age and the fact that these have been previously owned (sometimes I can’t determine if the contents of a sealed bottles are original because I do not open sealed bottles), I can offer NO guarantee on the content or (absence of) smell or originality of the perfume.

A Quick Note About Mini Perfumes

Miniature perfumes are generally under 3" tall. Micro minis are under 1" in height. All fragrance miniature bottles (mini perfumes/colognes) on my site are being sold as collectibles only. Fragrance miniatures were often sold along with larger bottles by the manufacturers as gift with purchases & may have the words "Gift Not For Resale" on them. All the miniature fragrances I have in my shop are from my personal collection, some were purchased new & some were purchased second hand & therefore may have been used. Please understand that I do not test any of these when listing & do not sell them for the fragrances contained in their bottles as these are old & most of the time they have turned and are no longer wearable.

A Quick Note About Perfume Samples

Over the years, I collected thousands of genuine vintage, hard to find & discontinued manufacturer's perfume & cologne samples, but I have to let some go now. These fragrances are old, & are most likely not fresh as they once were & their scent most likely has changed over time, please understand that I cannot guarantee that the fragrance still smells good to you. If a sample is carded, it may show signs of wear & tear from storage. Many of these samples are discontinued fragrances that are no longer produced & are considered collectibles. Please understand that I do not test any of these when listing & do not sell them for the fragrances contained in their vials as these are old & most of the time they have turned & are no longer wearable.

Are any duties, taxes or VAT included in my purchase?

No. For my international buyers - Buyers are responsible for additional costs caused by import/shipping that is levied by the various authorities in their own country. Import duties, VAT and other possible (tax) charges fall outside the responsibility of me and are the responsibility of the buyer. The buyer is personally responsible to inform themselves in advance of the charges levied in the country where the package is to be dispatched at the request of the buyer. Regarding the transport insurance the actual value of the content of the package is specified to the shipping company. By the laws of your country, you are still responsible to pay these. I, or Etsy, cannot illegally mark an item as "gift" to help you avoid these taxes.
