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.

I am looking for samples of vintage and new perfumes, skincare, hair care and cosmetics:

I am interested in acquiring samples. I would like to review these items on my blog. Some perfumes have been discontinued for so many years that there might not be any info about them or notes listed, I would try to list any notes that I detect while reviewing a sample. To send me a donated sample, just contact me thru the contact me page and let me know so I can send you my address. I am interested in any ladies fragrances, cosmetics, hair care or skincare products. If you do have Avon products you'd like me to try, then you can send them as long as they aren't perfumes, they make me sneeze!

If you have a book, bottle, powder box, company catalog, auction catalog, or any ephemera and want to donate them, email me at cleopatrasboudoir@gmail.com and I can send my address.
