Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

Roll No. 9

On ebay this week, is a strange perfume bottle, called Roll No. 9 by Roll Paris/Meknes. 

Curiously, there is a label on the box that reads "ROLL is the CREATOR of the REAL No. 5"

Its box has various labels which read:

“Pretty boxes and elegant flasks are often deceiving in containing perfumes of poor quality. ROLL, on the contrary, prefers to concentrate on the quality of its products, contained in plain flasks. As for the boxes, they are only packages which are used to protect the flasks. ROLL’s best advertisement is the QUALITY."


"No ROLL products were placed on sale during the German occupation - that is why ROLL’s quality is always the same as it was in 1939-40."

The box is stamped with "Manufactured in 1939-40"

Another label reads "This bottle is the same exact duplicate of those used at the court of Napoleon 1st 1804-1815"

I can find no information on Roll Paris/Meknes anywhere!
