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.

Creme de La Mer

So you're on ebay looking for a deal on La Mer skin care products? There are some things you need to know before purchasing anything.

La Mer does NOT wholesale their products out to anyone, they are distributed for sale to exclusive upscale department stores and sold from their own website only. Anyone claiming to have purchased La Mer products via wholesale is not selling a genuine product.

If a person actually purchased genuine La Mer products from La Mer's website or one of the department stores and shows proof of that, I am sure they are not going to sell the real thing for dirt cheap. Who wants to lose money when those products cost so much money to begin with.

I have heard horror stories of people buying what they thought was a real La Mer product only to find out that it is fake. Before you decide on purchasing La Mer from ebay, be sure to check the seller's feedback first.

Some sellers are buying real empty La Mer jars and containers whose products were used up and adding god knows what just to sell them under the guise of La Mer. Some sellers have been getting away with putting Nivea cream inside the jars. Some sellers are even claiming that the La Mer that they are selling is a "new and improved" version. This is completely false as La Mer has not changed their formula since its inception. La Mer's consistency is white, thick and smells lightly floral, medicinal, with a lil seaweed odor. Nivea cream is pure white and has its own distinct smell, buy a small container of it at a drugstore so you can compare products.

When you rub genuine La Mer creme in your hands, it will turn a thick liquidy consistency from the friction and heat from the rubbing, you can then pat it on your face, it will take 10-15 minutes for your skin to fully absorb it. The Nivea creme doesn't change consistency and soaks right in the skin.

Most of the fake La Mer jars are being sold in China and US sellers are distributing this garbage.

Authentic Creme de la Mer comes in white glass jars. The fake jars are a thick white plastic, trying to imitate they heavy glass ones. Most of the fakes are the small sample size jars. Stores that carry genuine La Mer products do not just give away samples. The only way to get a genuine sample of La Mer is to purchase one of their products first.

Also, Creme de la Mer never goes on "sale", it is never offered at a discounted price in any stores or their website.

I know you are looking for a bargain, but you might end up with something either fake or harmful to your skin. Your best bet is to buy directly from La Mer and not take any chances.

Authentic Creme de La Mer comes in three sizes: 1 oz, 2 oz, and 16.5 oz. You can also get a small sample jar with purchases.  To see all of the La Mer products, visit their official website http://www.cremedelamer.com
