Welcome!

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.

Bosquet d’Apollon by Rosine c1922

Bosquet d’Apollon by Rosine: launched in 1922. The name means "The Grove of Apollo" and represents Versailles.


The Grove of Apollo, 1922, referring to Louis XIV, Paul Poiret, used a pattern shown in the Salon d'Apollon at Versailles: the face of the Greek god of light circled by rays. Fascinated by this prosperous period, Poiret organized several receptions around the XVIII century with the rise of the small king.

Fragrance Composition:

I have no published notes on this perfume. "all the foliage, the verdure there, after a rain, the scent that comes from the grass and the leaves as you crush them underfoot in walking."

So what does it smell like? It was a green floral fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: green leafy notes
  • Middle notes: floral notes
  • Base notes: myrtle
