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.

Breathless by Charbert c1933

Breathless by Charbert was launched in 1933.

Fragrance Composition:

Since there are no official notes listed anywhere, I will take the opportunity to use my vintage perfume nip of this scent and will tell you what notes I detect. It would be classified as a floral oriental woody fragrance for women. Similar to Tabu, but lighter with top notes of citrus, followed by a sweetened orange blossom and spice heart, resting on a powdery, woodsy amber base.
  • Top notes: aldehydes, bergamot, citrus
  • Middle notes: orange blossom, spices
  • Base notes: vanilla, vetiver, tonka, patchouli, musk, amber, balsam, resins, benzoin, labdanum

Breathless was available in the following:

  • Parfum
  • Eau de Cologne
  • Bath Powder
  • Talc
  • "Mit Me" Bath Powder Mitt

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown. Still sold in 1973.
