    Thumbs up The Motherload of Long Lost Fragrances

    Hopefully this isn't blowing up someone's secret treasure trove for discontinued and vintage fragrances, but I just happened upon (quite randomly as well) this little site filled to the brim with vintage and little-known fragrances and minis. Most of it, I've never even heard of.

    The web site is almost like reading an old history book of perfumes. For the true connoisseur, it's an explorer's dream. Glad you shared this!

    A few interesting items, but, man, some of those were rough looking customers! Quite a few bottles that looked as if they had been excavated a few minutes before the shoot and what about those nearly empty ones with the darkened perfume leather lurking inside? I agree, nice site but can't imagine paying those prices and not being disappointed with what arrived.

    ^ Agreed.

    I stumbled across this website earlier this year and agree that many of the bottles on sale look worse for wear. I'm sure there's a gem or two among them but the poor website navigation can test anyone's patience.

    I have lots of experiencie with old perfumes for lately I inherited bottles dating from the 1920's - 1970's. Most of them are affected by time, at least they loose some notes, components react and oils end up splitted from alcohol or they simply become spoiled. Time takes its toll on everything, perfumes are not an exception.

    So if you buy them, do it only for the bottles, unless you can try the content before.

    Thanks for posting, many of these frags are genuine masterpieces right down to the flawless visual appearance of their boxes and bottles

    Couldn't resist a purchase or two but wish I had got there much earlier.

    I had completely forgotten about "Prince Matchabelli." When we were kids, my sister and I used to roll of the floor in fits of giggles over that name..."Your Wind Song stays on my (his?) mind... Wind Song, by Prince Matchabelli..."

    Good times.
