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 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.

Fashions of the Hour, 1932:
"Bourjois' Flamme perfume is a delightful bouquet of marvelously blended flower scents in an amusing geranium-trimmed bottle."

Drug & Cosmetic Industry, 1935:
"BOURJOIS is offering their new perfume, La Flamme, in a most attractive container. The round box is flowered, and the striking bottle rests on a base."

Fate of the Fragrance:


Flamme was discontinued for many years but brought back in 1976 but reformulated with modern ingredients by Jacques Polge. This version is also discontinued.. The 1970s bottles are packaged in tan colored boxes, the 1980s versions are packaged in red boxes.
