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."
