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.

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a floral chypre fragrance for women with green notes, fruity nuances layered over a woody base. It was reportedly created from over 80 different essences and starts off with a fresh green top, followed by a cool floral heart, resting on  mossy, woody base.

 Inspired by the rhythmic geometric patterns of Art Deco, the bottle designed by Pierre Dinand was a clear, pure block of sculpted glass adorned with vertical black lines. The bottle was manufactured by Pochet et du Courval with plastic components supplied by MBF Plastiques.

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown. Today, many retailers call this Armani Classic for Women, or Armani for Women.
