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.

Parfumerie Hera

Parfumerie Hera, also known as Parfums Hera, established by Marthe-Jeanne Thibault at 81-83 rue de Cherzy, Neuilly, Seine in 1910; cosmetic, perfumes and toiletries. The company also sold gold tipped "Egyptian Soir d'Orient" cigarettes. The company lasted until the late 1920s.

Sketch, 1922:
"Now- that the Hera scents can be obtained in England their irresistible charm is within the reach of all. Delicate and fragrant, they are imprisoned in uniquely shaped bottles which are ornaments in themselves. " Soir d'Orient " breathes of the magic East. Lilac is the very essence of that sweet herald of spring.  The Hera toilet preparations are delightfully- refreshing and beneficial. Blue dentifrice is a natural antiseptic for cleansing the teeth."
