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.

Rue de Cambon by Antoine de Paris

On April 4, 2012, I came across a rare perfume listed on ebay France. It is Rue de Cambon by Antoine de Paris, launched in 1937. The seller erroneously thought that this was a Chanel perfume which is understandable because Chanel did come out with a similar sounding perfume, 31 Rue Cambon. But, the perfume label clearly says Antoine, not Chanel.




However, I feel that this is much rarer than the Chanel perfume because Antoine de Paris was a famous hairdresser who introduced the popular ‘La Garçonne’ (urchin cut) of Flapper fame. Established by Antoine Cierplikowski (born 1884) at 5 rue Cambon, Paris in the early 1920’s, the company also produced a range of cosmetics, toiletries and fragrances.
