Welcome!

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.

  • Base notes: oakmoss, sandalwood, cedar, musk and ambergris


The New Yorker, 1938:
"Rigaud: We couldn't resist the way they have put out Feerie Moderne, with a naughty, old-fashioned nude on the box — the kind our fathers got roguish about. Perfume is nice, too. A good, fresh cologne has an overtone of amber (Saks-Fifth)."


Bottle:


Feerie was contained in a beautiful clear glass disk shaped perfume bottle molded with concentric rings. The frosted glass disk shaped stylized floral stopper was molded with vertical ribbing radiating from the center. 

The bottle was housed in an elegant presentation case covered in gold fabric, the lid features an image of the Jean Gabriel Domergue painting “Nu Sur un Champ de Lys” under glass. Domergue assisted in designing the package.



Fate of the Fragrance:


Discontinued,date unknown. It was still being sold in 1949.
