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.
