Welcome!

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.

Santalia by Roger et Gallet c 1955

Santalia was launched in 1955 by Roger et Gallet. Most people might remember it better as a  hair oil. It was very popular in India.

So what does it smell like? It was a feminine scent which I describe as a woody citrus. I have no official notes so I will use a vintage perfume nip and tell you what I can detect. First there is a burst of aldehydes, tuberose and mandarin orange, then a shot of lemon and bergamot all layered over sandalwood and vetiver.
