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.

Sharelle by House of Hampton c1962

Sharelle by House of Hampton: launched around 1962.

Vintage 1960s Sharelle by House of Hampton 1 Dram (1/8 oz) Collectible Mini Perfume Bottle. Cute little purse flacon. The bottle has a filigree and rhinestone detail on the front, a metallic gold ribbon wrapped around the neck, a gold plastic screw cap, and a gold foil embossed label on the back. My photos.

It is a sweet, floral, powdery oriental perfume for women with an herbal note. Smells a lot similar to vintage Shocking by Schiaparelli perfume. There are no official notes on this perfume, so I was able to test this with a little drop on my skin from my vintage mini bottle. Note: this is no longer fresh smelling as it was when it was new, it has turned. Here is what notes I detect:

  • Top notes: aldehydes, citrus notes
  • Middle notes: jasmine, rose, carnation, spices, honey, lavender
  • Base notes: myrrh, civet, sandalwood, resins, amber, musk, benzoin, oakmoss, patchouli

Discontinued, date unknown. Super hard to find, but worth it in my opinion.
