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 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.

Find Perfume Suited to Type

The Montreal Gazette- Aug 30, 1948 - Find Perfume Suited to Type:

To each his own smell. That’s the word of a Hollywood beauty expert. 

“Perfume is the final touch of good grooming which every woman should have, “ he declared. “But she should be careful in choosing her perfume. It should be soft, not too obvious, sweet; it should stay close to the body. Above all, it should suit her personality.”

He named 10 screen personalities and told what odors they should wear:
  • Lana Turner - medium -heavy odor, warm floral, not too oriental.
  • Hedy Lamarr - warm, earthy, amber type perfume.
  • June Allyson - light, delicate, resembling spring blossoms
  • Betty Grable - vivacious and spicy perfume for spicy gal.
  • Rosalind Russell - subtle and warm floral smell; gardenia type
  • Jane Powell - fresh and light as a lilac bouquet
  • Ingrid Bergman -warm, slightly floral
  • Greer Garson - soft, sweet, cool, lily like
  • Bette Davis - exotic, woody, but not sweet or floral
  • Marjorie Main - warm, outdoorsy odor.
