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.

Parfums Pierre Dune

Parfums Pierre Dune, established in 1939 at 49 rue de Prony, Paris by Edmond Rosens. Also traded under the name Rene Pierre. Pierre Dune's perfumes were still being sold around 1971 as evidenced from newspaper ads.

The first five perfumes were presented as potted plants in a flower cart. Other early perfumes were presented in flower pot presentation boxes holding delicate glass amphora shaped bottles, these were packaged with a perfumed sachet too. See the 1939 newspaper ads below.

Another presentation was for Pres de Coeur, (Close to the Heart) the perfume was presented in a box that had a picture frame on one side in which to insert a photograph of the absent soldier.

In the 1960s, you could get Belle de Mai in a bottle shaped like the Eiffel Tower, and Success was housed inside of a filigree covered bottle.
