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.

1930 Article on Importation of Foreign Perfumes

According to a 1930's article in the Tampa Times:

"The practice of bringing back perfumes from Cuba for all your friends is just about a thing of the past now, under the terms of the new (Republican) tariff law. Importations of all foreign manufactured perfumes are forbidden and Tampans returning recently from Havana were permitted to bring in only a single bottle of any one brand, and then only with the seals broken and other evidence of the perfume's source destroyed. Messrs. Chanel, Cot and others -address Paris - will be required to open brand factories in the US to manufacture their famous scents."
