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 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.

Fragonard Dupes of Popular Perfumes

For many years, Fragonard has created their own versions of popular perfumes. You might find a Fragonard flacon with a name of a popular perfume by another company, this could be confusing, some early Fragonard perfume bottles may have sealing cord with a golden wax seal embossed with the initials PF, for Parfumerie Fragonard.

If you know what some of their perfumes are imitating and I have not mentioned it below, please let me know.

  1. Si Jolie by Fragonard is quite similar to Joy by Patou and Ode, now discontinued, by Guerlain--so similar I use them interchangeably. Adore your site.

    Very Nice blog!

  3. ...and diamant is like a mild mild Angel de Thierry Mugler...
