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.

Lazell's Perfumes

Lazell of New York City. Established around 1870, the company was later acquired by Max Factor.

Lewis T. Lazell


Annual Meeting of the Manufacturing Perfumers' Association of the ..., Volume 9, 1903:
"Lewis Thurber Lazell, late senior member of the old and well known house of Lazell, Dalley & Co. manufacturing perfumers and formerly wholesale druggists of New York City, was born near Worcester, Massachusetts on February 19, 1825, and died of gastritis after a severe illness at his home 69 Livingston Street Borough of Brooklyn, New York City on April 30, 1902. He was a descendant of John Lazell, a Huguenot who came to America in the reign of Louis XIV and settling in Massachusetts, established his home at Hingham, where he subsequently was chosen a town officer, and marrying in 1647, left a large family. 
In early childhood, Lewis T. Lazell became a resident of Worcester and was educated in that city. In his youth he mastered the profession of pharmacy and in early manhood engaged in the retail drug business which he conducted with marked success. In 1855, he disposed of this business, and removing to New York City, assisted in establishing the firm of Lazell, Marsh & Hunn, which succeeded the old house of Haskell, Merrick & Bul,l which dated back to the early part of the century and later reorganized as Lazell, Marsh & Gardiner, and doing an extensive business in the manufacture and sale of drugs, became known in all parts of the country. In 1884, upon the death of Mr Marsh, and the admission of Henry Dalley to partnership, the firm changed its style to Lazell, Dalley & Co. under which title, it was subsequently incorporated.

In the business world, Mr. Lazell was warmly esteemed as a man of unblemished integrity and the purest character. Of late years, with increasing age he gradually withdrew from active business affairs, but never for a moment did he lose his interest in them nor in the wider field of the world's work. A Baptist in religious faith, Mr. Lazell was for many years a member, and also a trustee of the Pierrepont Street Baptist Church, afterwards the First Baptist Church of Brooklyn. A few years ago he changed his membership to the Emanuel Baptist Church, also in Brooklyn with the pastor of which the Rev. Dr. Humpstone, he was on terms of most cordial intimacy. He took a deep interest in works of religion and charity, and always lent his kindly and generous support to them.

A lover of nature and an ardent disciple of Izaak Walton, Mr. Lazell found his most delightful recreation in the sport of angling and attained to great skill as a trout fly fisherman. He was one of the organizers of the Oquossoc Angling Association of Rangeley Lake Maine. and for many years annually visited the waters of that region in quest of his favorite sport. Mr. Lazell was an old and esteemed member of the New England Society of New York, and also a member of the Hamilton Club of Brooklyn whose elegant club house was near his residence, and among the membership of which were many of his closest friends. In the social and family relations, his life was uncommonly beautiful. He was of manner so gentle and winning that all with whom he came into personal contact remained warmly attached to him. His widow and four daughters survive him. His remains were interred at Worcester, Mass."


The As-The-Petals line was introduced around 1910, and featured a drawing of seductive Salome surrounded by luxurious veils.
