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.

Parfumerie Royale and Parfumerie de Montespan

Parfumerie Royale was established in 1869 by Francois Crucq,  it was located at 13 rue de Trevise, Paris. The company was then taken over by Auguste Crucq after his father's death in 1887.

His brother, Francois Crucq, Jr. started his own perfumery company in 1889 using the F. Crucq name and sold similarly named cosmetics and toiletries as Auguste's company. This resulted in a lawsuit between the two brothers. Auguste Crucq ordered that Francis Crucq will be required to completely remove the sale of Similior and Nigérine and other products, detailed judgment in 1896 also said that Francois Crucq will be required to remove the initial F of its signature and its signs and all business documents, that he can not use his surname without the addition of the words eldest son, and that he must remove his circular and prospectus, bills, labels, words founded in 1869. Information found in Journal des tribunaux de commerce:, Volume 45, 1896.

Gaston Crucq was also named as a successor in 1926.

Parfumerie de Montespan was established in 1928 by Francois Crucq Fils Ainé, in 25, rue Bergère, in Paris.
