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)
