Razor Serial Numbers were impressed on all Gillette razors from 1904 until 1921, and on deluxe models from 1921 until 1931 (except for a period in 1927-28).This corresponds to the time King Gillette was directly associated with the business, and may have been at his insistence.
They are found in the top left and right corners on the underside of razor guards, both 3 peice and 1 piece models.Egoiste Platinum by Chanel is a Woody Floral Musk fragrance for men. It is expensive over 100 usd for 100ml but the projection and spillage is okay. Smell 10/10 Longevity 7/10 Projection 7/10 I know that there are some more potent and more complex frags out there but there is something about this fragrance that makes me to come back to it. Top notes are rosemary, lavender, neroli and petitgrain; middle notes are galbanum, clary sage, jasmine and geranium; base notes are amber, sandalwood, oakmoss, vetiver and cedar. It's herbals, flowers and metalic notes well blended. Here you can be a man without having to force things. Greetings, Yesterday I have bought Chanel platinum egoiste. I am a guy who usually goes for pepper cedar wood sort of notes but I must say I have fell in love with this. In my opinion this is one of the best fragrances I have ever smelled.Waits, and "The Complete Gillette Collector's Handbook" and Collector's Guide to American Razor Blades" by Phillip L. This page is based on a Wikipedia article written by contributors (read/edit).It's also good that it is not as popular these days as it used to be.
I also noticed some people complaining about longevity however it stays on me more than 8 hours. It works well all year round in any situation, definitely a signature type scent imo. Which sucks because I really wanted to like this.....although this isn't as good as I've heard the original Egoiste was, I've heard that Platinum comes in at a close second.
However, I'm 33 and although this doesn't smell "old" it smells a little dated for my liking.
I wouldn't mind a more modern take on this fragrance.

Hello all I now have two examples of the Gillette Aristocrat #15 Open Comb (OC) in Rhodium, dating from around 1938, and there are differences between the two. Upon opening you can see the example on the right has purple lining: Now look a little closer. The example underneath that one (see below) has no stamp on the handle. On that example (clear) the upper band has a thin line going around at the base of the band. Further differences: The stamped-handle example is stamped under the head with the number 400.621 The clear-banded example is stamped under the head with the number 430.030 Slight other difference: the 13 teeth on either side of the stamped-handle example are slightly rounded, and thicker.
