Vintage Fragrances * Discontinued Fragrances
Over the years, I have received many calls from my clients asking if I would duplicate their favorite fragrance that had been discontinued or if I could find a vintage fragrance for them. These requests led me to increase my Vinci & Rakos Parfum line to over 200 scents to help satisfy their needs. However, when I come across fragrances that have been discontinued by retail cosmetic and fragrance houses for men or women, or find a vintage scent, I will offer them here. Vintage Gift Sets will also be included. If a Discontinued Fragrance or a Vintage Fragrance is purchased and the item contains alcohol, the item must be be shipped by UPS Ground Track or USPS Standard Post. (None of the Vinci & Rakos products contain alcohol, however, most of the products on the retail market today do contain alcohol.)

Vintage Chantilly Houbigant Gift Set
I found a fabulous Newspaper Ad that was in The News from Frederick, Maryland * Page 3, dated December 22, 1969. The Advertising page was from Peoples Drug Store featuring a wide variety of Gifts for Her during the Holidays. There was a picture and copy for the CHANTILLY LADIES’ GIFT SET featured: Creme de Chantilly, 2 Oz., Eau de Toilette, 1 Oz. and Dusting Powder, 1.5 oz. Luxurious! 1578 (priced at $3.75). This Ad verifies that this Chantilly Gift Set is over 45 years old.
Chantilly by Houbigant was launched around 1941 and was considered to be an oriental/ambery fragrance. The top is fresh with notes of bergamot and fruits, the middle is spicy and floral with notes of jasmine, ylang-ylang and carnation settling down with base notes that are sweet, balsamic and powdery. The Crème de Chantilly has some evaporation due to age, the Chantilly Perfumed Talc is full and The Eau de Toilette Chantilly Houbigant is ¾ full due to evaporation. The three vintage containers sit regally on a red felt and gold pedestal which has the original cardboard over cover in the pink and grey iconic Chantilly flowered pattern that is textured and razed. This vintage Gift Set is very rare and is a collector’s dream and is in excellent condition. (1 available) $75.00
Vintage Uninhibited Perfume by Cher
Launched in 1987, Uninhibited was the first perfume created for actress and pop diva, Cher, in collaboration with Parfums Stern in New York City. The advertising copy read: Bottled by Not Contained. Uninhibited was labeled as a Floral Aldehyde, however, the lovers of her scent believe that it is really an oriental with spicy notes with just a little aldehydic on the top. It is a blend of woody, sweet, powdery, vanilla notes with a touch of citrus. Some say that it might even contain a touch of Pineapple.
Since we cannot “turn back time” there are very few bottles of Uninhibited to be found and has become very rare. The uniquely designed “diva” type glass bottle sits on top of a black felt two piece set-up box and is adorned with a stunning drop necklace. The silver and black box has a mosaic-like textured design and raised feel. I have left on the plastic wrap that partial covers the box; in addition, included is the original protective shipping carton which is impossible to find. The .25 fl oz (7.5 ml) Perfume has never been opened but has some evaporation due to time and being over 27 years old. (1 available) $195.00

Vintage Guerlain Heart-Shaped Stopper Bottle
Researching the origin of this beautiful bottle and fragrance has been fascinating and challenging. The vintage bottle has the following markings etched on the bottom: Guerlain, Paris, France – Bottle Made in Paris. It also has the words Baccarat France etched, as well as three symbols in a circle: a chalice, a parfum bottle and, I believe, the symbol 11. The heart glass stopper dauber has a number etched underneath the base – it is either 61 or 91 – depending on how you hold the stopper. Other research indicates that the original bottle design was created by a different manufacturer then Guerlain took over the production.
The following information came from the website www.monsiieur-guerlain.com. “It was made in 1912 for the fragrance L’Heure Bleue and Fol Arome but later also contained Mitsouko. It was designed by Baccarat glassworks. L’Heure Bleue’s bottle, called the heart-shaped stopper bottle, is one of Guerlain’s most symbolic and enduring presentations. Influenced by the prominent Art Nouveau design movement which celebrated nature’s sinuous forms, the bottle was made with flowing lines and curvilinear shoulders.”
“As such, the bottle conveyed the angelical grace of the prewar times, even though it was reused for Mitsouko after the war. For many years, the designer and executer of the bottle, Baccarat glassworks, catalogued it as the “gendarme hat bottle” because the stopper appeared to resemble the hat of a French policeman, but the official inspiration is that of a heart, very suggestive of the Belle Époque’s romanticism and refined optimism. The perfume box had chinoiserie-style drawings of various farming motifs, like sowing, harvesting and fishing, portraying the artisan’s love of nature’s produce. Family: semi-oriental, floral. Notes: anise, bergamot, orange blossom, heliotrope, tuberose, carnation, violet, Bulgarian rose, tonka bean, orris, benzoin, vanilla, musk.”
Parfum, EdT, PdT. The L’Heure Bleue Parfum is the most delicious, magnetizing thing ever to come out of the Guerlain patisserie. It’s infinitely smoky-sweet and velvety with the rich flowers evolving only slowly, sedately, and muffled by orris and cushiony balsam and musk all along, literally a gourmand. Less so is the PdT whose spicy carnation strikes sooner. The EdT is a study in the wonders of orange blossom, simultaneously candied and fresh.
Reformulation. Until recently, L’Heure Bleue had suffered surprisingly little from reformulation. Newer batches were not as mellow and long-lasting with less sparkling orange blossom and the use of safer, cleaner and somewhat flatter musks, but the original allure remained. Today, the old classic appears spicier and harder than Jacques Guerlain probably meant it to be.”.
My Comments: The classic bottle is 3” shoulder to shoulder and 2” wide and 5 ½” tall, and contains a little less than a half a bottle of fragrance. It is very rare to actually find a bottle with vintage fragrance. There is no label on the bottle and no carton, however, it appears that the scent is L’Heure Bleue because of its depth and oriental aroma. The fragrance has deepened with age in color and in intensity but still has a vintage appeal. The bottle with fragrance weights 15.7 fl oz, and it is believed to be a 4 fl oz size. I do not want to empty the bottle of its precious liquid to determine the precise weight of the bottle. The fragrance was introduced in 1912, however, the age of this bottle and fragrance is estimated to be around 1930. (1 available) $295.00
Vintage L’Air Temps for Women by Nina Ricci
L’Air du Temps is considered to be a classic and one of the most fabulous fragrances ever created for women. The fresh flowery beginning of the scent moves into a floral spicy sentiment and ends with a powdery and feminine finish. Launched in 1948 after the end of World War 11, the original perfume bottle had a dove on the top to signify peace. This vintage, non-aerosol Eau de Toilette Tester Spray is 4 floz and was distributed by Jacqueline Cochran, New York City. The bottle is full and adorned with beautiful gold doves and flowers silk screened around the container and is over 22+ years old. The tester did not come with a cap or carton. $75.00
Vintage Eau de’Alliage by Estee Lauder
Alliage Eau d’Alliage by Estee Lauder was launched in the early 1970’s as a very green, chypre fragrance for the sports minded woman. The scent opened with a green top, graduating to a middle of jasmine, rosewood and pine creating a spicy effect and settling down to a very mossy ending with oakmoss, vetiver and musk. This bottle is very rare and estimated to be at least 35 years old and is in the original scent before it was modified. Notice that the layout of the word “Alliage” is vertical, silk screened in gold and the spelling of the word “Alliage” has two ll instead of the current one. The 50 cc/ml glass bottle is a very classic design and heavy in its feel and presentation. The silver indented cap tops off the iconic style and the bottom label is in silver. (1 available) $79.50

Vintage Charlie Fragrance by Revlon
Charlie was introduced by the cosmetic company, Revlon, in 1973, and was named after its founder, Charles Revson. Charlie was released as a fragrance for the new woman – the working woman.

The original cartons had the branding — “A most original fragrance” for women.

Vintage Aida Essence by Aida Grey
“Aida Grey is a name with a series of firsts’ after it,” quoting Harper’s Bazaar (September 1986). “She coined the term ‘skin care’ to describe the service she brought to American women 50 years ago; she pioneered the use of natural ingredients — herbs, flowers, fruits, vegetables and seaweeds–in order to treat her own sensitive skin; and she began using DNA ampoules in skincare — before anyone else, of course.” It was 37 years ago that Aida Grey came out with a honey and almond pore cleanser, a concept that today is imitated by many skin care companies.

Shalimar Guerlain Gift Set
It is a very vivid and exciting description of Shalimar taken from the Guerlain website: “The setting: Northern India, four centuries ago. His name was Shah Jahan. Her was Mumtaz Mahal.. Dazzled by her beauty, he idolized her, so madly in love was he that he wanted to make her life a perpetual garden of delights. And so sprang from the earth the Garden of Shalimar. The story of their boundless love fired the imagination of Jacques Guerlain who, in 1925, created the world’s first oriental fragrance. A subtle mix of flowers and sensual amber-woody accents. Shalimar has become the eternal essence of love and radiant femininity. Wildly Guerlain, marvelously classic, it continues to fascinate your women just as it conquered every generation that came before.” The Top Notes are citrusy fresh (lemon, mandarin), the Middle Notes are woody floral (patchouli, rose, jasmine) and the Base Notes are sweet, powdery, balsamic (vanilla, leather).
The Shalimar Gift Set is vintage and contains a Eau de Toilette Spray 1 fl oz (30 ml) and a Dusting Powder Net Wt 4 oz (114 g) and thought to be around 25 – 30 years old.

New York, N.Y.
VINTAGE TIFFANY PERFUMED CANDLE in AUTHENTIC CERAMIC BOX – This extremely rare and fragrant Tiffany Perfumed Candle is encased in an adorable ceramic container that is reminiscent of the iconic Tiffany blue gift box with their white ribbon. This type of container was also used as a Tiffany jewelry or couples ring box — which you can also use — when the Candle is finished to keep your rings. This authentic Tiffany Candle container stands 2 ½” tall and 2” square……..and weighs 5.8 oz. ……….and the actual Candle height is 1”. The container has the embedded markings of Tiffany & Co. on the back of the container with Tiffany labels on the front of the box and on the back of the box to indicate its authenticity and that it was made in Japan for Tiffany. The container with Perfumed Candle is in perfect condition.
I have contacted the Tiffany Headquarters in New York City, and no one there could even remember when the item was offerred – which indicates how Vintage the Tiffany Perfumed Candle is (one of the Tiffany Service Reps said she had been there for over 10 years and that she cannot even remember the Candle – and that they had retired Tiffany Perfumed Candles). If my memory serves me well, I acquired the Candle over 20+ years ago). On the web, an empty Tiffany Ceramic Box is selling for $150.00 without the Vintage Perfumed Candle or the oversized Vintage Bag. I decided to add a very Vintage and and Antique Tiffany Dust Bag to complete the Tiffany Perfumed Candle look and appeal. The Vintage Tiffany Bag is 5 ½” horizontal and 7 ½” vertical and is also extremely hard to find and is in very good condition printed with the word Tiffany on the front with their iconic gold drawstrings.
