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.

The American Perfumer and Essential Oil Review, Volume 11, 1917:
"Mr Siluis Van Dyk of Paris proprietor of Parfumerie Monna Vanna, Paris, arrived in New York on the Rotterdam, March 12, in company with Count de Frise. Mr Van Dyk is a brother of LA Van Dyk, manufacturing chemist New York.  
The travelers met Dr FS Mason on board, and had occasion to enlist his services to combat Neptune when the efforts of the ship's physician proved unavailing. Not knowing that Dr Mason is the American representative for Rigaud, the Paris perfumer, Mr Van Dyk sent as a token of gratitude to Dr Mason, a handsome bottle of Monna Vanna perfume. When explanations were made the party became highly amused over the strange coincidence and celebrated the meeting of kindred spirits in the most approved nautical manner."
