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.

Fake Victorian and Antique Chatelaine Perfumes

Here is a warning for those who buy on ebay, a seller (sunil_arts_engg_works) located in India is making fake chatelaine scent bottles. They are taking newer bottles and adding new brass hardware and calling them antique or Victorian. Most of the bottles are 1930s and newer. Many are Art Deco in style which look stupid with fake Victorian hardware. Please be aware that these are not genuine antique Victorian era perfume bottles. See some examples below. Many of their perfume bottles exhibit the same exact hardware.

They do have some authentic antique Victorian perfume bottles and scent bottles for sale amongst their "fantasy" pieces.
