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.

Narcisse Perfume Bottles

Caron's Narcisse Noir was so popular that it spawned many imitations, including the shape of the bottle. Some competitors tried to copy the bottle as close as possible without breaking the copyright or trademark laws, while others were a bit more unique in design.

The set made by Garno for their Narcisse perfume in 1927 featured clear glass bottles with flat, vibrant red glass stoppers molded in the shape of a flower. This is quite beautiful!

Here is the original ad from 1930 showing the set, just arranged differently,and the talcum bottle is a different shape.
