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.

Parfums Lalanne

Parfums Lalanne was established by Charles Lalanne at 104 rue Faubourg-Saint-Honore, Paris.





Charles Lalanne originally had a beauty salon located at 3 rue d'Aguesseau and established Parfums Lalanne later, probably around 1919 or so. This short-lived company produced not only perfumes, but cosmetics, perfumed soap, hair care products and toiletries before being acquired by Academié Scientifique de Beauté in 1933.


  • 1905 - Charles Lalanne Salon located at 3 rue d'Aguesseau 
  • 1907 - Charles Lalanne Salon moved to 100 rue Faubourg, Saint-Honore, Paris
  • 1910 - Parfums Lalanne established at 104 rue Faubourg-Saint-Honore, Paris. 
  • 1933 - Sold to Academié Scientifique de Beauté 




Charles Lalanne patented several types of hair waving apparatuses, hair tinting processes, wig making and other products in the 1910s-1920s. An unusual product was a "Barrette parfumée", which sounds like it was some sort of hair barette that could be perfumed.



In the 1920s, Parfums Lalanne was imported in the USA by Hartour company of Boston, Mass., who also imported other French perfume brands such as Fioret.
