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.

Lutece by Houbigant c1984

Lutece by Houbigant: launched in 1984. Apparently, "Lutece" was the old name for the city of Paris.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a floriental fragrance for women.
  • Top notes are aldehydes, mandarin orange, Brazilian rosewood and geranium
  • Middle notes are peony, rosemary, orris root, vetiver, lily-of-the-valley and cedar
  • Base notes are tonka bean, cinnamon, musk, vanilla and heliotrope

Federal supplement. [First Series.] - Volume 593:, 1985:
"Houbigant has announced plans to market, beginning in August, 1984, a line of cosmetics and fragrances (perfumes) to be called "Lutece."

Fate of the Fragrance:

In 1995, with the acquisition of Dana Parfums, Lutece was marketed under the Dana name instead of Houbigant. Some people say that there is a slight difference between the two fragrances, but most people say it is quite close to the original formula.
