This is not your average perfume blog. In each post, I present perfumes or companies as encyclopedic entries with as much facts and photos as I can add for easy reading and researching without all the extraneous fluff or puffery.

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.

Also, if you have any information not seen here, please comment and share with all of us.

  • Double headed ibex boat held three shell shaped soaps.
  • Horus the falcon powder jar
  • Frog pomander
  • Cat shaped bath salts trinket box
  • Camel shaped bath salts trinket box
  • Hippo shaped candle holder with lid
  • Dresser tray decorated with lotus motifs
  • Cat shaped pomander
  • Bird pomander
  • Duck shaped soap dish
  • Egyptian sarcophagus shaped dresser jar with bath salts
  • Lotus shaped candle holder with lid.
  • Ibis bird box
  • Lotus decorated jar/lid (four petal top, jagged edges, half circle knob)
  • Lotus decorated small jar/lid candle holder, (four petal top, smooth edges, flower knob)
  • Lotus decorated tall jar for bath crystals, with round stopper, rounded bottom, on 3 leg brass stand
  • Tall vase shaped jar with blue triangle design, with double lotus stopper
  • Small round dish with lotus
  • Queen Nefertari decorative bust on stand
If you have something that is not listed, let me know and I will update the list. Thanks to Pam for helping me update the list.
