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.

Eau Cendree by Jacomo c1974

Eau Cendree by Jacomo: launched in 1974.  

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a fresh chypre fragrance for men. It begins with a fresh, herbaceous, spicy top punctuated with piment, followed by a dry, floral, spicy heart spiked with pepper, resting on a woody, mossy base of cypress.
  • Top notes: bergamot, nutmeg, lemon, coriander, petitgrain, lavender, tarragon
  • Middle notes: piment, green pepper, clary sage, carnation, cinnamon, geranium, cyclamen, orris, fern
  • Base notes: cypress, musk, amber, patchouli, vetiver, oakmoss, sandalwood, labdanum, tonka bean

Mademoiselle, 1979:
"Jacomo's Eau Cendree strikes me as similar to the trio above but spicier. It is a man's scent, worn by a number of French and American women as their sports fragrance."


Presented in a bottle designed by Pierre Dinand in 1970. The bottle was manufactured by Saint Gobain Desjonqueres with plastic components supplied by Mayet.

In 1974, Eau Cendree retailed for $8 for 2 oz of Eau de Toilette Splash, $13 for 6 oz of Eau de Toilette Splash,  $12 for 4 oz of Eau de Toilette Spray, with a spray refill of $10.

Fate of the Fragrance:
