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.

In 1933, a New York company named Preferred Toiletries, Inc released a new cosmetic and toiletry line under the name of Vivian Vance, the beautiful stage actress of the day who would later be more famous for being Lucille Ball's sidekick on I Love Lucy.

These are some vintage photos of Vivian Vance from the 1930s.
The toiletry line included such items as: cleansing cream, Lilac Water, shampoo, vanishing cream, face lotion, face powder, lip rouge, brilliantine, nail polish and two fragrances: Parfum Bouquet and Gardenia perfume.

The advertisement was found in a 1933 edition of Modern Mechanix magazine.
