Well I guess I'll start
** HUGHES GUERLAIN "EAU DE JOIE **
Got this lovely vintage bottle today. There'sa the nr.3 & nr. 10 on the bottom. Also a company logo looks like "MW" joined toghether. I think it's about 25-30ml. Filled with a lovely chypre perfume, that I've never heard about! To best describe the perfume I would say it reminds me a of a weakened, sweeter Van Cleef & Aprels "First". Googled on it, and found nothing. Does anyone know this one?
I did find this on Marcel Guerlain:
"a DEPINOIX perfume bottle for Marcel Guerlain, circa 1926, in clear and frosted glass, with sepia stain and label." at http://www.liveauctioneers.com/h/ite...l&itemtype=all (Hammer Price $800 )
The info below I've copied from http://reviews.ebay.com/Vintage-Guer...00000001688347, written by "cleopatra*s_boudoir" : "Please note that two other Parisian perfume companies should not be confused with the Guerlain family company are Marcel Guerlain & Hughes Guerlain. This perfume is from 1920s-1930s. Marcel Guerlain. the Hughes Guerlain company and also launched these fragrances that I googled on, Extrait 9, Extrait 14, Bolide, Molny, and Aime, probably manufactured in the 1920s-1930s. These names are not affiliated with the Pierre-Francois Guerlain family although Marcel Guerlain was the same name as one of the heirs to the Guerlain family, there was no other connection. In light of this confusion, the Guerlain family adopted the slogan "Nous n'avons pas de prenon" (We have no first name) and brought a successful lawsuit against Marcel Guerlain, who then changed his company's name to the Societe des Parfumeurs Francais. Marcel Guerlain was then using his own slogan when advertising in the USA: "no connection with any firm of similar name". Marcel Guerlain founded his own company in 1923 and produced perfumes and cosmetics. He opened a splendid shop at 86 rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honore in Paris. He also formed seven other perfume companies such as the Hughes Guerlain company and launched four fragrances that I know of, Extrait 9, Extrait 14, Bolide, Molny, and Aime."
