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.

William H. Brown & Bros. Perfumery

William H. Brown & Bros (also called Brown & Brothers) perfumery was located in Baltimore, Md.

Their bottles are hard to find and I have named all of those I could find in advertisements of the era, so they may have been originally launched years before. I am sure there are more, so if you know of any, please let me know. I believe their perfume company was established in the mid-1800s.

 In 1871, their warehouse was destroyed by a storm.

They trademarked a perfume called Violet Simplicity in 1900.
