Parfum Inconnu by Houbigant c1910

Parfum Inconnu was launched in 1910 by Houbigant. The perfume was created by Paul Parquet.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? The fragrance was described as a "very fresh scent, reminding one of Spring flowers." I am unable to locate any notes on the composition of the perfume, and I haven't seen this fragrance come up for sale in a while. I would love to smell this if you have any to spare.

  • Top notes:
  • Middle notes: flowers
  • Base notes:


The perfume was housed in an unusual octagonal crystal flacon with a gilded crystal stopper, manufactured by Cristalleries de Baccarat, design # 8.

Fate of the Fragrance:

The perfume was discontinued around 1933 or so.
