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 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.

Hindustan by Myrurgia c1922

Hindustan by Myrurgia: launched in 1922.


Fragrance Composition:


So what does it smell like? I have no published notes on this composition. I would need a sample of the perfume to tell you what it smell like. I would imagine it was an oriental perfume.

Hindustan was available in the following products:
  • Parfum (Extracto)
  • Lotion (Locion)
  • Powder (Polvos)


Bottle:

The clear glass bottle has a triangular shape decorated to the lateral panels with foliage in high relief. It has an stylish tall shape with an attractive stopper.  The full color paper label depicts an exotic oriental dancer "Hindustan Myrurgia Barcelona". The large bottle measures almost 10" high by 2.5" wide. 

It is pictured and mentioned in Masterpieces of the Perfume Industry by Christie Mayer Lefkowith pages 203 and 197.




Fate of the Fragrance:


Discontinued, date unknown. Still being sold in 1931.
