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.

AJ Hilbert & Co.

AJ Hilbert & Co. was located at 517 521 Prairie Street Milwaukee and De Pere, WI.

Established 1888 by Augustus J Hilbert.




In addition to perfumes, it seems this company also produced flavoring extracts, toiletries and cosmetics. Their perfumes were often combined with the words Essence De Luxe or Ultra Ess (Ultra Essence). The company seems to have had it start in the 1890s and continued up until the late 1920s. Their products were offered in the Sears and Roebuck mail order catalogs in the early 1900s.
