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.
