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 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.

Callisté

Callisté. Established by Charles de Coppet at 130 rue de France, Nice in 1918. It seems that their fragrances were launched starting from 1926 onwards.



The company name was derived from the Greek word 'Kallistos', which means ‘most beautiful.’

Calliste's perfumes were housed in simple, Art Deco bottles with clean, straight lines, but the glass was of beautiful colors: onyx black, opaque white and deep translucent cobalt blue.

Perfume list:
  • 1925 Mon Studio
  • 1926 Ce Sont des Fleurs
  • 1926 Distinction
  • 1926 Jeune et Jolie
  • 1926 Réseda
  • 1926 Duchess de Brabant
  • 1926 Giroflée
  • 1930 Orchidees
  • 1930 Serre Chaudes

Fashions of the Hour, 1930:
" The Individual touch is the first and last word in Paris notes for fall accessories, and Calliste follows suit with "Distinction," a new perfume which comes in a round pearl bottle and smart black box. $8, $15, and $25.


 

Calliste "Jeune & Jolie".  A perfume bottle of cobalt blue glass, cuboid form, each side with moulded panel on which is a gold paper label.  The globular lid comes off to reveal a blue glass stopper, c. 1925.
