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.

La Dore Perfumes

In this guide I will introduce you to the perfumes presented by La Dore. The company was situated in Paris, France and in Chicago.

I was able to cull most of my info from the 1908 Sears & Roebuck catalog. Some of their advertisements read:

"La Dore Imported Perfumes. The La Dore line of perfumes is manufactured by one of America's best perfumers and is the same grade of perfume retailed at 50 cents and 60 cents per ounce in bulk at retail drug stores. The odors are all sweet, delicate and lasting. Beautiful 1 and 2 ounce glass stoppered bottles as shown in illustrations. Each bottle is neatly capped with fine kid and tied with fancy ribbon, and makes a very neat and pretty appearance.While this line of perfume is exceptionally fine value for the price quoted, it can in no way compare with our higher priced perfumes. One ounce bottle - $0.35. For a two ounce bottle - $0.55."

"La Dore Ruby Salve. Ruby Salve is a refined and harmless rouge prepared in the form of a cream for tinting the cheeks, lips and fingers, leaves a perfectly natural stain or glow abd can never be detected. The majority of ladies prefer rouge in this form, as it is put up in a very convenient manner and easily applied. Our price- $0.17."

"La Dore Crystal Shampoo Jelly. Removes dandruff, leaves the hair soft and keeps the scalp in a healthy condition; produces the finest foam, is the most economical shampoo abd is excellent as a cleanser. Our price $0.24"
