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 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.

Besame by Myrurgia c1922

Besame by Myrurgia: launched in 1922.


Fragrance Composition:


So what does it smell like? I have no notes on this perfume. I would imagine it was an oriental type perfume.

Bottles:



The flacon for Besame was designed by Julien Viard and features stylized foliage motifs in the oriental taste. The stopper also has a stylized floral decoration. The bottle stands 3-1/2" tall.






The presentation box for the perfume is decorated with panels that mimic antique Persian miniatures. You can see three close ups of the panels below.







Fate of the Fragrance:


Discontinued, date unknown.
