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.

Maudy & De Musset Perfumes

Maudy of 7 rue Lilas, Colombes (Seine) France, established in 1928 by Adrienne Foy,  affiliated to de Musset and produced luxury presentations..

De Musset was established in New York in 1928 by Marcel Foy in New York in 1928; launched a range of fragrances in c1920 and 1930's and remained in business of short duration. Associated with Legrain.
