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.

Celebrity Fragrances

The usage of celebrities to endorse or create new popularity of a new perfume has been done since the 1800's. The names of well known personalities of the day helped sell perfumes and beauty products to those who wished to emulate the stars themselves.

Some perfumes were created for the celebrities to be sold under their own names, some were inspired by the person and some were only used to advertise the products.

Early celebrity perfumes included Eau de Cologne Napoleon, Jean Marais

La Rose Jacqueminot was launched by Coty to honour the French general Jacqueminot.

Rigaud launched a line of perfumes named for popular opera singers of the day, Mary Garden, Geraldine Farrar, Emma Trentini, and Carolina White. Mary Garden, had an entire line named after her consisting of perfume, facial powders, toilet water, lipstick, creams, and an assortment of other toiletries.. However, Rigaud may have introduced some Mary Garden products without her consent. As a result, Garden sued Rigaud in 1937, and won! Rigaud wasn't the only perfume company to use Mary's name, the McLean Perfume Co of Detroit launched Mary Garden perfume before 1904, a label around the neck of a bottle states that it won a Grand Prize at the Saint Louis Fair in 1904.

Other perfumes were named for Marthe Chenal.
