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.

Mappemonde Perfume Bottle c1920s

Very rare perfume bottle from the 1920s. It has a small frosted glass airplane for the stopper, the bottle itself is a large world globe on a pedestal, with clear glass representing the oceans and frosted glass representing the continents. It was made to commemorate the epic of aeronautics. The bottle stands 5" tall x 3.5" diameter.

Used by different perfumers for the South American market. This would have had a black and gold box, cover retained by a pink ribbon, bright interior.

Label in pendant with the inscription "Florence" on one side and design of an airplane on the other (circa 1920).

Reference: Perfume Presentations, p.197. € 850/900
