aged fragrance

In one of my perfume listings, I am speaking of a vintage fragrance that may have aged but has not gone bad (very old perfumes can go bad, and you know it when they do). Here is a quote from my listing, context included for better comprehension.

"
...La boite est en bon état avec les bosses et les marques ici et là. Quelle trouvaille! Peut-etre un objet d'époque, mais le parfum n'est pas du tout mal. Garanti d'être authentique..."

Is this satisfactory? I want the item to seem palatable, but I can't guarantee that it is fresh, although this is a well-known classic perfume that hasn't been made in probably 25-35 years, so I am assuming (hoping) that people won't expect it to be fresh. It has not, however, gone altogether bad.

    As it seems to be an advertisement, you have to be honest but you must keep something which could be attractive, so that I would suggest the following sentence: la boite est en bon état, avec seulement quelques marques ici ou là, mais le parfum est plutôt/assez bien conservé, garanti authentique.
