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 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.

Monad Violet by Colgate

In 1901, Colgate introduced a new perfume which they called Monad Violet.

This intriguing scent was reminiscent of dewy, spring violets, crushed in all their fresh, woodsy fragrance.

The fragrance was available in parfum, toiet water, soap and talcum powder.

The Art Nouveau  labels for the products all featured beautiful chromolithographed violets inside a gold border with the name "Monad Violet" and "Colgate Perfumers New York USA" underneath.

By 1937, Monad Violet was discontinued. It is rare to find a bottle filled with the perfume, however, it is possible to find the empty bottles on ebay from time to time.
