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.

White Satin by Angelique c1949

White Satin by Angelique came out in 1949.

A 1950 ad reads: "Angelique White Satin demurely innocent as a bride, fragrantly floral, light and gay. "

A 1953 ad mentions that this is a "world famous cologne loved for is haunting allure."

What does it smell like? It is classified as a floral fragrance for women with a semi oriental facet. In my opinion, it smells like Avon's original scent of skin so soft. It has notes of citrus (lemon maybe), geranium, powdery amber, lilac, lily of the valley, lavender, light musk, woods such as sandalwood.
  • Top notes: lemon, bergamot, geranium
  • Middle notes: lilac, lily of the valley, lavender
  • Base notes: sandalwood, vanilla, musk, amber, benzoin

I used a vintage 1950s perfume nip to sample the fragrance, smells better on skin than on paper. On the skin it is lush and pretty, a delicate, fresh and light floral powder scent emanates.
