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.

Vintage 1920s Swiss Chuit, Naef & Cie Scent Strip Stand

This 1920s Swiss metal scent-strip stand was made by 'Huguenin Freres & Co, le Locle, Switzerland' as indicated from the marks on base: 'HF  HUGUENIN LE LOCLE  SWISS MADE   FAB. SUISSE' for Chuit, Naef & Cie (1895 - 1945) as seen by their monogrammed initials: 'CN CIE' at the foot of the stand.

(Chuit, Naef & Cie is now known as, Firmenich SA, a private Swiss company in the perfume and flavor business.)

The last three images/items (not included in this auction) shows an image of the noted French ("Nose") perfume maker, Jacques Guerlain (1874 - 1963) holding a similar type scent-strip stand in his hand, and a glass scent-strip holder & stand. The glass holder (Porte Mouillette) was produced in the 1960s by Firmenich 'after' the original 1920s version made by French artist/designer Julien Viard for Chuit, Naef & Cie as indicated by their monogrammed trademark logo on base.
