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 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.

Lorenzy Palanca

Lorenzy Palanca. This company was established during the 19th century by Jules Lorenzy at 61 boulevard des dames, Marseilles, France.





Although the business primarily sold soaps, around the turn of the century, they also sold perfumes, razors, toiletries and cosmetics with beautiful paper graphics and stunning label designs. The business was successful enough to open major branches in Algiers, Oran, Nice and Toulon, but went bankrupt in 1930.

The name Lorenzy-Palanca was subsequently used by a new company, Societe Anonyme Andre Lorenzy.

I have listed all the various perfume/soap names I could find from this company, and I know there are more out there, if I missed one, please let me know. These are few and far between. Though it is possible to find old soap labels on the internet, and repros. Remember, when finding labels, the scent names for soaps are always preceded with Savon, the French word for soap.
