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.

Perfume Bottles Auction 2015


100 Years of Glass Design - Auction 2015

NEW DAY - Saturday, May 2, 2015 - 5:00 pm

This year Ken Leach is is honored to represent a fine selection of bottles and objects by notable glass makers - most recently de-accessioned from an important East coast collection - comprising 300 lots of imaginative stylish glass design spanning 100 years.

A fine grouping of Lalique glass includes: the first complete bottle that Rene Lalique designed for a
 perfumer, the 1909 “Cyclamen” for Coty; the 1912 blue glass bee-stoppered “Au Couer des Calices” for Coty; the 1925 figural ashtray created exclusively for Jeanne Lanvin; and the1909 Egyptian inspired “Scarabee” powder box for L.T. Piver sealed with contents in it’s original box.

The collection offers two rarely seen Czech perfume bottles by Heinrich Hoffmann: one in opaque brown crystal and the other in opaque red-orange crystal, both with the highly desirable “hand chiseled” surface. Highlighting the art glass, and many 1800s Palais Royal selections is a green opaline glass and gilt bronze horse drawn carriage.

Presentations from fashion houses include items from Paul Poiret, Schiaparelli, Babani, Lucien Lelong, Hattie Carnegie, and Jean Patou. Standing tall among them is the exceedingly rare 16 inch Christian Dior silk doghouse with figural bottle, created in 1956 to mark 10 years of Dior in New York. Other commercial bottles from the collection include numerous examples in boxes representing a variety of glass makers and perfumers. 

Also offered are powder boxes, atomizers, and other unique vanity items.
