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.

A 1927 ad reads
"...a renaissance of unsophistication Parfum La Jacee irresistibly it creates as atmosphere of alluring pureness and naive simplicity. A lovely box in black of East Indian design.."

Another 1927 ad reads:
"Before even the earliest of Spring flowers show green tips, Coty introduces a charming odeur that is entirely new. It is called La Jacee. As pleasing a friendship or birthday gift as a man can bestow. Let us look now at Coty's bottle, ' La Jacee.' It sits squat and low."
