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.

Zutz Cosmetics Company

The Zutz Cosmetics Company was started by Henry E. and Julia Zutz in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1923. They made by hand, a variety of women's perfumes and cosmetics in small batches for specialty shops of their time.

Henry was trained as a pharmacist and worked in that field for years before starting his own cosmetics company.

They ceased production completely by 1946.

Produced were: toilet waters, perfumes, bleach lotions, creams, tonics for dry and oil scalps, nail polish, astringents, water softening bath salts, and the Zutz potpourri sachets.

Zutz Cosmetics were sold thru a small store named the Thelma and Viola Beauty Shop, ran by Thelma Davis and Viola Harper.

American Exporter, 1933:
"With ZUTZ INDIVIDUAL COSMETICS Dealers and Distributors increase sales opportunities because ZUTZ ... cosmetics offer a full line of individual products, including perfumes, for individual purposes, tastes and requirements.

Rarely one can find their perfume bottles, which is a green or blue slag glass rectangle with a golden foil label with an Egyptian style lady on the front.
