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.

Vintage Boudoirs of the Stars - Part 7

 Here are more fabulous images of dressing tables of the past! I have tried to identify all the perfumes in each photo, but sometimes the images are just too small for me to make them out.

Mary Brian holding Le Chick Chick by Vigny, and sitting at her vanity featuring various atomizers on her vanity as well as commercial bottles. On the bottom shelf, I spy Golliwogg by Vigny, Serre Fleurie by Corday, Arlequinade by Rosine, and the box for Porte Bonheur by D'Orsay. The third shelf down holds either L'Heure Bleue or Mitsouko by Guerlain, Des Jardins de Muse by Fioret, Narcisse Noir by Caron, and unknown bottles along with a Volupte atomizer. The second shelf down displays Le Dandy by D'Orsay, and Porte Bonheur by D'Orsay hiding behind it, and one Volupte atomizer, a DeVilbiss atomizer and an Italian Murano glass perfume bottle. The top shelf has the matching Murano perfume bottle along with a nice French atomizer.  

Austro-Hungarian actress Vilma Banky (1902-1991) at her dressing table. A tall DeVilbiss atomizer is in the center, along with plenty of cut glass perfume bottles and a powder jars.

Huge French atomizer with probably Marcel Franck hardware. c1920s.

Ginger Rogers in Professional Sweetheart, notice the pretty Czech bottles on her vanity. 

Grace Bradley, 1935, with perfumes on her vanity including Pois de Senteur de Chez Moi by Caron, and either Mitsouko or L'Heure Bleue by Guerlain (with a stopper for Narcisse Noir by Caron inside!) also notice the gorgeous large Czech crystal perfume bottles and atomizer.
