Old Favorites Are Back Again!

Are you still mourning the loss of Faberge's Babe, Coty's Tribe, Goya's Black Rose or Aqua Manda? Well wipe away those tears as a new company Beauty Brand Development  has acquired the rights to produce and sell these long lost faves.

Beauty Brand Development states that they "reached out to fans help us recreate [these fragrances] through social media and the internet and we were overwhelmed by the response. Some fans of [these fragrances] had an intimate knowledge and appreciation of the perfume so we invited these fans to work with us in bringing back [these fragrances], drawing on their fond recollection to make it as near to the original as possible.

After lengthy research we were fortunate enough to find the original ingredients from the public records and from collectors of the original [fragrances]. This gave us the assurance that we could recreate the original [fragrances].

We employed the renowned French perfumer, Givaudan to develop the perfume, working with this information in their highly specialised laboratories to create numerous samples for the fans to test and eventually approve."


Faberge's Babe was launched in 1976 and was discontinued in 1992. Babe opens with a fresh burst of lavender, aldehydes and hyacinth offering radiance and energy. A bouquet of exquisite and elegant flowers exhales vitality and colourfulness. The end note is a refined woody scent of warm sandalwood rounded by sensual solar accord, moss and ambrette that leave a gracious and delightful trail on the skin."






Tribe was launched by Coty in 1991 but was discontinued in 1997.

"Alluring and addictive, Tribe is designed to suit every woman and make their life full of colour.

Opening with a bright cocktail of juicy fruits, a delighted bouquet of rose, jasmine and orange flower brings the femininity. Then, soft musks, creamy vanilla and sheer cedarwood are enveloping and comfortable offering a bold and unique signature."



Black Rose by Goya was launched in 1955 but discontinued around 1984.

"Goya Black Rose was first created in the 1950's by the founder of Goya, Douglas Collins. The heritage of creating beautiful perfumes was then inherited by his son Christopher Collins. Christopher Collins and the original oil suppliers have acted as advisors on the relaunch of this iconic perfume. After extensive research and investigation the original formulas for this perfume have been discovered at the Amersham Museum, these historical documents have been referenced to recreate the beautiful romantic fragrance of Black Rose.

Making the fragrance as close as possible to the original. Because memories are so precious. This fragrance begins with a sparkling citrus green accord of bergamot and green stems contrasted by the irreverent clove. The heart of the composition reveals a fresh and feminine floral bouquet of rose, Damask rose, geranium and enhanced by a comfortable drydown of the white flowers of jasmine, solar notes and the sensuality of a velvety musk."



Aqua Manda by Goya was launched in 1947 and discontinued in 1975. It was recreated in 2013.

"This recreation of the original scent has been painstakingly developed by a team of perfumers at the original oil suppliers and after many trials and tests it has been approved by the original creator of the Aqua Manda fragrance, Christopher Collins, who has acted as an advisor on its relaunch.

Aqua Manda Perfume is back again, enjoy the lingering, refreshing fragrance of this classic perfume, made with essential oils of mandarin, ginger, lavender, patchouly, cinnamon, and other aromatic herbs."



Aqua Citra by Goya was launched in 1973, but discontinued in 1975. It was recreated in 2014.

"Aqua Citra is the sister perfume to Aqua Manda and is born from the same era, made with essential oils of Mediterranean lemon, ginger, lavender, patchouly, cinnamon, and other aromatic herbs.

An explosion of citrus notes combined with a soft spicy accord brings a contrasted freshness to the green floral heart of the composition, leaving an addictive woody and musky drydown at the end.

The recreation of the original scent has been painstakingly developed by a team of perfumers at the original oil suppliers and after many trials and tests it has been approved by the original creator of the Aqua Manda fragrance, Christopher Collins, who has acted as an advisor on its relaunch."
