    Default Recognize any of these bottles?

    A friend emailed me this photo of a local socialite circa 1946. Apparently the perfume room was a wedding gift from her husband. Just curious, does anyone recognize any of these bottles?

    Now that's what we ALL need ! A perfume room !

    I recognise Nuit de Noel , the 2nd bottle from left, on the 2nd top shelf. Still lookin' for more ..............

    Hi Descartes, didn't take you long to do the research! (I wasn't going to mention her name, as I didn't know what kind of comments would come up, and her niece is a friend of a friend of mine...) What I don't know is if she was seriously into fragrance, or just enjoyed shopping... :-)

    Mrs. Hogg had very good taste- does the collection and the room still exist ?

    I imagine the collection has been dismantled.. she died in 1970. The house is gone -- 2005: "The grand old house at 2950 Lazy Lane — an updated historic property known as Dogwoods — hardly looked like a teardown. But this week, its new owner, John D. Arnold, the former wunderkind of Enron's energy trading desk, began demolishing it." (This kind of thing happens a lot around here. But, that's a different topic for a different forum!)

    What a great pic! Look how she's holding a bottle...the preeeeeeciousss! We know exactly how she must feel. Well, not exactly. I do NOT have a perfume room, but I can understand why she'd need one.

    That is so awesome. Now if I could only find a man willing to marry me AND give me a perfume room as a wedding present, lie would be nearly perfect. lol

    YIKES! Looks like a fairy tale from the past...just a fantasy we would all love to experience. With the black & white photo, it is hard to see the bottles clearly; I'd love to know what that huge bottle in the middle is.

    I have a perfume room. But it looks suspiciously like my bedroom....
