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.

Tristano Onofri by Tristano Onofri

Tristano Onofri Femme by Tristano Onofri: launched in 1990. This is the feminine counterpart fragrance to Tristano Onofri Homme released a year before in 1989.

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a chypre floral fragrance for women, though I would have classified this as a spicy floral oriental.
  • Top notes: bergamot, nutmeg, mandarin orange, basil and orange blossom
  • Heart notes: iris, jasmine, rose, tuberose and labdanum
  • Base notes: sandalwood, musk, ambergris, oak moss, vetiver, patchouli and vanilla
I am unfamiliar with this fragrance. I am not sure if there is a slight turned top note or if it may just be the spicy herbal top notes of basil and nutmeg. I think this is a beautiful fragrance. Very similar in the vein of orientals such as Youth Dew, Cinnabar, Opium and the original Guess perfume from 1990. It is very long lasting and is definitely a high quality perfume.

Available as Eau de Parfum.

Presented in an elegant rectangular shaped satin glass bottle molded with softly molded closed pleats on the sides. The  white frosted plastic stopper is molded as a pleat of material that falls open in graceful folds, a nod to the fashion designer.

This fragrance has been discontinued for years and can be very hard to find.
