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.

Parfums Worth

Worth was a couture house located at 7 rue de la Paix, Paris.

 It was established in 1858 by Charles Frederick Worth . He was born in 1826 and trained in England. Soon began designing dresses for his wife, and the admiration of others caused Worth to open a fashion department in a fabric store where he worked after 1846. He became a successful couturier, designing for Empress Eugenie and other European royalty.

Frederick died in 1895 but he company remained a family business and introduced perfumes in 1924, where they employed Lalique to design all perfume flacons.

The company was sold in 1946, and all the salons were closed by 1954.
