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.

Lalique Perfumes in the 1920s

Art & Decoration, Volumes 15-16, 1921.
"In France, when a new perfume appears on the market in a beautifully modeled glass flacon, there springs up the appreciative exclamation — "Ah, another creation of La- lique — exquisite," or, "Is the bottle by Lalique or Baccarat?" The maker of the perfume is proud of the fact that his flacon is by Lalique: he “features” the fact - he believes, in fact he knows, that the name of Lalique will mean something to people, will add to the prestige and the welcome which will be accorded his product. 
Here, in a similar case, the manufacturer would not at once think of going to some such resourceful and imaginative artist as Manship for the design of a perfume bottle. He would not feel that Manship’s name would add any practical value to the new product. And if some one urged an American perfumer to go to Manship for a design (to keep to our purely hypothetical case) it is almost certain that it would not occur to him to bring out the fact for the enlightenment of the public. “
