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 and repository of information 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.

Hula by Roxy c1998

Hula by Roxy: launched in 1998. Roxy is a brand of women's surf and sportswear manufactured by Quicksilver since 1991.

Hula was created by Givaudan Roure. Hula was available as a liquid scent and a solid perfume. The perfume was contained in a long skinny glass vial, that could be used with a pink atomizer or as a dab on. The bottle was presented in a cylindrical case. The solid perfume was housed in a round tin. Or a gift set presented in an old school style metal lunchbox holding both the perfume and the solid perfume with an atomizer.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? The press release describes the fragrance as" a "fresh, sporty bouquet for girls searching to attain Zen on the beach"."
  • Top notes: lemon, lime, papaya, sea breeze accord
  • Middle notes: gardenia, frangipani, jasmine sambac
  • Base notes: white musk, woodsy notes, driftwood accord, surf wax accord

It smells, she said, a little like a beach, a little woody (like an old wooden long board) and a little like the ocean breeze off California. ''Which is sort of citrusy,'' Ms. Lori Smith of Givaudan Roure added, ''and it's there because when I asked surfers what they thought about when they were waiting for the next wave, they described this smell.''

Fate of the Fragrance:

Unfortunately, this fragrance has been discontinued for many years.
