Perfume Flaconettes by Milton Cahn

Milton Cahn of 47 West 34th Street, New York, an importer of fine French perfumes. In 1923 38 yr old Milton and his 31 year old wife Madelyn returned to New York from Cherbourg, France on the ship Berengaria probably with the newest perfumes.

In 1925, Milton Cahn advertised their "Flaconettes", these were small glass vials filled with famous perfumes and housed inside of aluminum tubes. The company repackaged scents from designer houses such as Coty, Houbigant, Caron,Veolay and Guerlain and was not affiliated to these companies.

These sales gimmicks were not new in the 1920s, and bring to mind the similar Nips by Nipola and the Magnums by the Magnum Import Company.

Milton Cahn also imported Caron perfumes into the USA during the 1920s.
