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 Rue Dee

Parfums Rue Dee was located at East 30th Street, New York. They launched some fragrances starting in the early 1930s. I do not think that this company existed past WWII. their items are pretty rare.

Drug and Cosmetic Industry - Volume 35, 1934:
"Rue Dee Co. Organized. The Rue Dee Co. has been organized in New York to introduce a new line of perfumes. Rudolph Samuels, formerly stylist and advertising manager for Lucien Lelong, is director of the new company at 655 Fifth Avenue New York."

Printers' Ink, Volume 168, 1934:
"To Introduce New Perfumes Rudolph Samuels, former stylist and advertising manager for Lucien Lelong for eight years, is now director of the New York office at 655 Fifth Avenue, of Rue Dee Parfums. These are new perfumes which will be introduced to the American market about October 1."

The perfumes of Rue Dee:
  • 1934 Glamour
  • 1934 Ermine (a delicate, sweet spicy gardenia perfume)
  • 1934 Plaid (a fresh floral perfume)
  • 1935 Witching Hour (very light and sweet floral)
