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.

Palo Alto by Ybry c1930

Palo Alto by Ybry: launched around 1930.

Harper's Bazaar, 1930:
"Ybry's Palo Alto, in its exquisite cut crystal bottle, is a light floral odour named in honour of Mrs. Hoover."

Etude, 1938:
"Joie de Vivre is a happy perfume, vibrant with life, ready to go anywhere, at any time at the toss of a coin, yet it is a luxury perfume. Ybry has also recently introduced Palo Alto, a subtle scent reminiscent of the heather in high hills and of the ever present spring flowers which bloom bravely just below timber line."

Still being sold in 1944. Discontinued date unknown.
