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)
  • 1924 Après Midi  (a rose perfume)
  • 1924 Soir (a 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.
