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.

In 1928, Louis Boucheron was commissioned to take the crown jewels and fashion them into a "nauratan" - a bracelet set with a constellation of nine precious stones corresponding to the planets. These bracelets were once traditionally given as good luck amulets to young Rajasthani brides.

To house the exotic Jaipur scent, the house of Boucheron, inspired by the elegant curves of the Nauratan bracelet, fashioned a gilded crystal flacon with a faux sapphire cabochon serving as the stopper. The exceptional design won the "Women's Best Packaging of the Year - Prestige" FiFi Award at the 1995 Fragrance Foundation Annual Award.
