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.

Harper's Bazaar, 1960:
"Coup de Feu by Marquay is another new arrival from Paris. This one, however, is exotic, Oriental, fittingly packaged by Salvador Dali, who knows, if anyone does, about “the flame and explosions of the spirit of youth” typified by this perfumes. Two other perfumes from the same house are newly available here: they are L’Elu and Prince Douka."
