Chateau de Paris Perfumes

Chateau de Paris, a company who produced low to mid price perfumes in the 1980s. they advertised their perfumes in magazines such as Ebony and Harper's Bazaar.

Ads for the time read:

These perfumes were knockoffs of famous perfumes, just given different names. I think that Fantaisie was a knockoff of Arpege, Passione was a knockoff of Chanel No. 5, Bien-Aime was a knockoff of My Sin, Premier Amour a knockoff of White Shoulders, Celeste a knockoff of Shalimar, Un Cherie a knockoff of Joy,...
