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.

Asja by Fendi c1991

Asja by Fendi: launched in 1991, in association with Parma. It was created by Jean Guichard.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a soft oriental floral fragrance for women. 
  • Top notes: apricot, verbena, raspberry, peach, lemon,  bergamot, blackcurrant buds, Egyptian jasmine and ylang-ylang
  • Middle notes: orchid, orris root, ylang-ylang, nutmeg, honey, carnation, lily of the valley, mimosa, Bulgarian rose and cinnamon
  • Base notes: amber, cedar, styrax, musk, benzoin, sandalwood, tonka bean and vanilla

The initial idea for Asja was to create a soft oriental fragrance that women could feel comfortable wearing during anytime of the day, not just for evening. Doreen Bollhoffer, Elizabeth Arden's manager of fragrance development in 1995, explained Asja. "It differs from typical Oriental fragrances through it's 'fresher top note and lighter wood notes - sandalwood as opposed to patchouli for example'. And vanilla. 'It recalls a certain comfort level'".
