Vintage STYX EAU DE STYX made by Pfizer 3.0 oz. Rare

Like hearing a song from the 70s, the STYX scent takes you back to your better, more sensual days! My sister collected this fragrance and wore it to work often driving all the men crazy!

This auction is for a vintage Styx Eau De Styx cologne. The bottle is approximately 97-99% full. It is a 3 oz. cologne. The scent is very potent. The bottle is in excellent condition but the label shows a little age. I do not have the original box. This is the same unforgettable STYX scent from the 70s as shown in the first picture. I believe this to be the Styx Eau De Mischief Spash right before they changed the label to all black with fire as shown in the first photo. It is "other-worldly" and unforgettable! The perfume was discontinued in 1974 and remains a highly collectible perfume today .

I found the following info about STYX on a very helpful website about collectable vintage scents...

"Let Styx be your perfume. It's dark and disturbing, pagan an its name." Styx was launched by Coty in 1912, named after the river Styx from classical Greek mythology, it was originally presented in a flacon designed by Rene Lalique. It was advertised as "The Fragrance of subtle, mysterious, haunting personalities." Styx was originally available in perfume/parfum, eau de toilette, cologne, face powder called Au Styx, and a powder sachet.

Styx was discontinued in 1945/1946. In 1951, Styx, along with La Rose Jacqueminot, again returned to the sales counters in a a new bottle, a familiar bottle used for various Coty fragrances, topped with a gilded cap.

Styx was discontinued by 1956, then revived again for the last time in 1971 by Pfizer-Coty. It was available in 3 oz black bottles called Styx Eau de Mischief Splash and Styx Spell-Spinning Spray. Included was a little witch spell you were supposed to use when you wore it, "styx river styx water mystery double - turn him my way or bring him trouble!"

Styx also came in a solid form packaged in little black plastic cauldrons,the package instructed you to: "Repeat these words as you stroke on this potent Styx perfume: "Let love begin! Let cauldron and fire bind our hearts in one desire. The perfume was discontinued in 1974 and remains a highly collectible perfume today .

The perfume Styx features notes of bergamot, carnation, ylang ylang, galbanum, iris, incense, violet, amber, patchouli, sandalwood, vanilla or benzoin), woods, musk and oakmoss. It is green, mossy and quite beautiful in its composition. "
