Welcome!

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.

Claudette Colbert and Perfumes c1920s

In this movie still photograph, you can see several perfume bottles on Claudette Colbert's huge vanity. On the left shelf I can spot several Czechoslovakian perfume bottles including a Hoffmann nude stopper flacon on the top and another Hoffmann bottle on the shelf underneath that one, it has the nude dauber. Directly below this bottle is a large crystal bottle of Toujours Moi by Corday. Underneath this you can see a large fluted crystal atomizer bottle which may be French or Czech in origin.To the left of this bottle is a crtsyal bottle with a lapidary stopper, unfortunately, I cannot make out any labels or other decoration so I am thinking it may be a standard cologne flacon from a Baccarat, Val St. Lambert or Saint-Louis toilette garniture. To the right of that bottle we see an etched crystal perfume bottle with long stemmed dauber, perhaps by Heisey, Hawkes or DeVilbiss. Directly below we see a black crystal flacon of Femme de Jour by Corday. To the right we will see a unique flacon for Le Chick Chick by Vigny, it is quite fun as its gilded metal cap is in the shape of a stylized baby chicken's head, hence the cute name. Also next to this bottle is a crystal atomizer, again in a fluted pattern, but of unknown origin. Finally to the right is another Czechoslovakian crystal bottle. You can also make out a powder jar, a hair brush and some other vanity accouterments on the table top.
