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.

Maroc by Ultima II c1985

Maroc was launched in 1985 by Ultima II/Revlon. Ultima II envisioned luxury when they created this perfume and presented it in gold on gold presentation boxes.

Maroc was inspired by the moschata, a wild, white, musk rose, which can only be found growing  on the Mediterranean coast of Morocco, east of Tangier, during September. The moschata flowers in the sunlight and blooms on long after dark. Lush, warm and sensual.

Maroc was exclusively blended in France of high quality essential oils which included Moschata rose, rose maroc, rose otto, jasmine maroc and rich undertones of patchouli, ambergris, musk  and mousse de chene. The scent is reminiscent of Moroccan princesses , poets, and potentates, evoking an atmosphere of opulence. The spokesmodel for the perfume was 25 year old Kim Alexis, who posed in Morocco for the perfume's advertisements.

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a floral chypre fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: bergamot, honey
  • Middle notes: geranium, jasmine, orris, Moschata rose, rose maroc, rose otto, jasmine maroc
  • Base notes: ambergris, patchouli, vetiver, civet, oakmoss, rosewood and musk

Maroc disappeared from the shelves around 1990 and remains a popular discontinued scent today..

The perfume was re-created by Irma Shorell Inc/Long Lost Perfumes in 1995. It features:
  • Top notes: coriander, cardamom, geranium, rosewood, bergamot, and aldehydes.
  • Heart: Otto rose, jasmine, orris root, gardenia, ylang-ylang and lily of the valley.
  • Base: sandalwood, musk, patchouli, vetiver and oakmoss.
