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 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 d'Arys

Arys of Paris France, established in 1916 at 3 rue de la Paix Paris, by Dr. Lucien Graux, who had already produced perfumes with the Arys name. He was the perfumer to the Royal House of Spain. Graux played a major role in the 1925 Paris exhibition.

Arys was known for its Oriental -inspired fragrances. In a 1925 publication, the so called "Societe Anonyme des Parfums d'Arys", whose products were prepared "according to the formulas of Dr. Reymondon," is singled out as "one of the most powerful organizations in France and in the whole world." It had modern factories in Courbevoie, Milan, Barcelona, Brussels, Budapest and elsewhere., the report goes on that the factories are equipped with laboratories developing equipment which is marked by its perfection and constantly updated in accordance with the latest mechanical methods.

A fairly early link was forged between Arys and Lalique, but the bottles do not rank among his most beautiful. Altogether, Rene Lalique created at least fourteen flacons for Arys, nine of these were available in more than one size.
