Welcome!

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 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 Diaphane

Established in 1881 by Mr. Reverchon. Parfumerie Diaphane exported its products around two-thirds in most of Europe, in Indo-China to Japan in the Caribbean and off the coast of Pacific.

Key products included the sheer powder, Poudre Diaphane, used and endorsed by Sarah Bernhardt, and the perfume, Diaphane Pensée. Prizes for previous exhibitions, received the bronze medal in Paris, 1889.

Company was taken over by Jules and Paul Ehrmann in 1889.

Company was taken over by G. Mazuyer et Cie around 1898.

Any perfume or product from this company is extremely rare.




Revue illustrée, Volume 15, 1896:
"La Parfumerie Diaphane dont la célèbre poudre de riz Sarah Bernhardt a depuis longtemps consacré la réputation dans le monde entier nous offre aujourd hui une nouvelle création d élite l'Eau d'Ambre. Cette eau de toilette d une grande persistance de parfum et d'un arôme délicat qui révèle la véritable élégance s'emploie indistinctement sur le mouchoir ou dans le vaporisateur. Le public mondain a déjà accordé à l'Eau d'Ambre ses lettres de grande naturalisation."
