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.

Nectaroma by Tuvache c1960

Nectaroma by Tuvache: launched in 1960.








Fragrance Composition:



So what does it smell like? It is classified as a fresh floral fragrance for women with a warm, grassy note.
  • Top notes: cassis, basil leaf, cardamom, bergamot and mandarin orange
  • Middle notes: spices, lily-of-the-valley, neroli and french orange flower
  • Base notes: oakmoss, musk, violet, cedar and vetiver


Harper's Bazaar - Volume 94, 1961:
"NECTAROMA. BATH FRAGRANCE AND BODY JOY Just airborne—a great new fragrance fashion, rich and rare—warm—flashingly brilliant. A few drops in your bath or on your skin surround you with loveliness to herald your approach."


The New Yorker, 1962:
"Tuvaché some time ago brought out a bath perfume, called Nectaroma, that is all outdoors—sunny, grassy, and flowery. Now they've gone and made a perfume of it, to say nothing of all manner of powders and other condiments for the bathtub. They're to be found most everywhere."

Playbill, 1962:
"GOES WITH A WOMAN A fragrance born in the sun, born anew on a woman who loves masses of flowers in every room, the best of everything in life . . . Nectaroma — today's fashion fragrance. Like love, it's indispensable!"



Fate of the Fragrance:



Discontinued for years before being reformulated and relaunched in 2013 by Irma Shorell.
