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.

Charme Caressant by Dalon c1924

Dalon was established in Paris in 1924 and was affiliated to Pleville, NYAL (Rexall).

Pleville was established by Michel Pleville in 1922 at 38 rue des Mathurins, Paris.

Dalon relaunched Pleville’s 1923 perfume Charme Caressant in 1924, using a new bottle.

Pleville released the perfume Charme Caressant again in 1925 under a new name of Jardin d'Or.

Charme Caressant. This perfume takes it’s name from a cosmetic and toiletry line from Dalon. The line included perfume extract/parfum, face powder in five shades, brilliantine liquid for the hair, vanishing cream, rouge in five shades, toilet water, lipstick in four shades and compacts.
"CHARME CARESSANT BEAUTY PRODUCTS: CHARME CARESSANT FACE POWDER—What entrancing perfume in this exquisite Face Powder. Coupled with the velvety softness of the powder this fragrant perfume has made Charme Caressant the favourite of discerning women. You will like it, too, because it ' clings.' When applied over a foundation of CHARME CARESSANT VANISHING CREAM it will stay on for hours. Dust on liberally with a full puff, then brush off to your liking. Offered in five shades — Rachel, Naturelle, Olive, Suntan, and Blanche. 2/6 and 4/6 a box. CHARME CARESSANT ROUGE—CHARME CARESSANT ROUGE is thrilling ! Petal soft, faintly perfumed, and most important of all, offered in four natural skin tones— Crushed Rose, Orangette, Radiant, and Raspberry. 1/9 a box"
