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.

Maritza No.9 by Countess Maritza c1950

Maritza No 9 by Countess Maritza was launched in the early 1950s, however,  not much information is to be found on this perfume. It was available as eau de parfum, perfume spray, purse spray and spray mist. It was also available in a foursome gift set along with Sonata, Silent Night and White Mist.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like?  I am lucky to have a vintage 1950s perfume nip to use for this review. It's a floral fougere fragrance for women. It smells nicer on skin than paper.
  • Top notes: aldehydes, lily of the valley, narcissus, carnation
  • Heart notes: cloves, cardamom, fern
  • Base notes: vanilla, vetiver, patchouli, oakmoss, sandalwood

Fate of the Fragrance:

This was still being sold in 1968. This perfume is discontinued and can be quite rare to find.
