Bernard Lalande

Parfums Bernard Lalande of Paris, France. Active in the 1980s-1990s. Available only at French airports as souvenir perfume sets.  Traded under the name S.A.R.L. Etablissements Bernard Lalande. He produced Men's Toilet Water, After-Shave Lotions, Deodorants for Men, and Perfumes. Today, no one owns the trademark.

The bottles were made by Saint Gobain Desjonqueres, the marking is "SGD" on the base of the bottle.

The mini bottles are clear glass squares with plastic caps. The caps have a plug inside to keep the perfumes from leakage during travel.

  • Parfum Jasmin (sweetened jasmine, oakmoss, sandalwood, other light florals such as lilac)
  • Parfum Ambre (at first sniff - it smells a lot like Shalimar to me, heavy on the ambergris, opoponax, benzoin and vanilla-- beautiful)
  • Parfum Vert (green galbanum freshness, light floral scent, oakmoss some animalic notes)
  • Parfum Boise (woodsy notes of cedar and sandalwood, patchouli, oakmoss, vetiver on amber, incense and spices)

These actually smell very nice to me with complex dry downs and not cheap or shrill smelling notes.

Sometimes you can find a figural Eiffel Tower bottle filled with the scent Bleu de France. The bottle was made up of frosted and clear glass and was designed by Pierre Dinand in 1989 celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower's construction.
