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 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.

Sirene by Vicky Tiel c1994

Sirene by Vicky Tiel: launched in 1994. In 1996 it was marketed by Parlux Fragrances, Inc.


From Vicky Tiel:
"Vicky Tiel’s premier fragrance, Sirene was created as a scent of pure seduction.  The intoxicating oriental blends fresh fruit, woods and amber with a floral bouquet to create an undeniably captivating scent that exudes femininity and irresistible temptation."


Fragrance Composition:


So what does it smell like? It is classified as a powdery floral oriental fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: aldehydes, orange, geranium, peach
  • Middle notes: rose, violet, jasmine, jasmine, peony, ylang-ylang
  • Base notes: musk, sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla



I have a couple vintage bottles of the original fragrance from Parlux from the giftset above, I think this is a beautiful fragrance, very cozy, at first spray it reminds me of Red Door by Elizabeth Arden, but better. A nice powerhouse floral fragrance for winter and sweaters. It has a lovely baked cherry pastry dough facet in the drydown which smells almost edible and reminds me of L'Heure Bleue by Guerlain. The marriage of jasmine and sandalwood are reminiscent of Samsara by Guerlain. I cannot stop sniffing my wrist!


Bottles:


Contrary to belief, Lalique did not design nor manufacture the bottles. The beautiful perfume bottle used for Sirene was designed by Pierre Dinand and manufactured by Verreries Brosse. The bottles are amphora shaped and feature nudes along a frosted background, in the style reminiscent of Lalique. Pierre Dinand took his inspiration from an antique perfume bottle originally designed by Julien Viard in 1916 for Avenel's Reve Bleu.




Sirene was available in a range of bath and body products as well:

  • Body Lotion
  • Shower Gel
  • Body Cream


Fate of the Fragrance:


The original formula was released by Parlux and was sold to Five Star Fragrances in 1997. Today, you can still find Sirene, in both its vintage and its newest formulation. The older bottles are frosted glass, the newer bottles do not features the frosted finish.
