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.

André Perugia

Perugia was established by André Perugia around 1924 at 11 rue de Faubourg-Saint-Honoré, Paris. He is best known as one of the greatest custom footwear designers of the 20th century.

The perfumes of Perugia:
  • 1924 Matin ("a very strong, insistent odor", or "very delicate and soft")
  • 1924 Après Midi  (a sweet rose perfume)
  • 1924 Soir (a heavy oriental sandalwood perfume)
  • 1938 Atmosphere (a leather perfume)

The Oregon Statesman, 1927:

The Vidette Messenger, 1929:
"Madame varies her lovely decorative bottles with some that are quite amusing. Les Heure de Perugia, for example, come in amusing step-like bottles, three in a set. Matin, a very strong, insistent odor - Apres Midi, a rose fragrance - and Soir, like sandalwood, make up one set of three."


The Les Heures de Perugia was a presentation of three perfumes: Matin (Morning), Après Midi (Afternoon) and Soir (Evening). These perfumes are housed in various different bottles, but were commonly found in the black glass rectangular flacons emblazoned with the AP monogram in gold lettering.
