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 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.

Dorothy Gray Salon Cold Cream

Dorothy Gray's Salon Cold Cream advertisement, early 1950s. From the music in the beginning, it sounded like it was from I Love Lucy. I think Dorothy Gray was one of their early sponsors, hence the commercial.

Dorothy Gray Salon Cold Cream, her face is actually covered in radioactive dirt so that it would read on the Geiger counter, pay attention to the commercial. Then the cold cream would remove every trace of it. This was ONLY done for the commercial, to show you the effectiveness of the cream, live on a commercial. There was no radioactive materials included in the cream for everyday use by housewives at home or at the Dorothy Gray salons. It was just for the commercial to show how the cleansing cream worked.
