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.

Algiers by Tuvache c1940

Algiers was launched by Tuvache in 1940. Tuvache offered five interesting perfumes created from exotic tropical flowers found in the jungles of Algiers and Morocco which are compounded and packaged in the United States. These were promoted as "limited edition" perfumes.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It was a fruity floral feminine perfume. The fruits are sharp and citrusy, the flowers languid and poetic, white hyacinths and narcissus and spicy carnations.
  • Top notes: citrus
  • Middle notes: carnation, narcissus and white hyacinth
  • Base notes:

The New Yorker, 1956:
"A new challenger in this field is Balenciaga's quaintly charming Quadrille, while Tuvache's worldly Algiers is getting increased attention from women who prefer fruit- laden perfumes."
