    looking for anything about these bottles, if anyone can help.

    Can't find a single thing online.

    Interesting. Wasn't aware they came out with fragrances under their own name.

    It looks like some company has taken a chance with the name

    Production was probably halted as soon as the folk in Grasse found out

    Story to these bottles of cologne.

    My wife's (Lisa) grandfather worked as the Ballroom Maitre'd at the Hilton Hotel in New York City back in the 60's, 70's and 80's. These were given out during Christmas time.

    Anytime there were events, he would always come home with items from that event. This is how we acquired these.

    In one of the boxes was a business card from a gentlemen named John K. Funesti - Vice President - P Robertet Inc

    And there was a P Robertet Business in Oakland NJ as per the bottom the test bottle, but now closed.

    I found a little history on him. -

    John K. Funesti earned his B.S. in Chemistry at Fairleigh Dickinson University (1960),
    while working as a perfumer at Lever Brothers Company. Subsequently, he had Senior
    Managerial and Chief Perfumer positions with Givaudan and Lever Brothers Company
    and was Vice-President and Technical Director for Robertet Inc. He has had his own
    perfuming consulting business under the name of Y & F Creative Services. Today, he is
    Vice President, Perfumery of FLA VORSCENTS, Inc. He was President of the
    American Society of Perfumers twice (1974 and 1989), and he will be co-Chairman of
    the American delegation for the World Perfumery Congress 1991 in Palma de Mallorca.

    ^^^^^^^^ Interesting

    Probably made on commission by the Hilton Hotel and not for sale to the general public. John Funesti must have had some link with the Hilton

    Might be worth some dollars -- who knows?

    PRC = P. Robertet & Cie.

    I'm sorry I can't shed any light on your bottles.
    Today, Robertet are known as a producer of natural materials but I've seen numerous older bottles from the '20s on bearing their name and the names of famous perfumes from Guerlain etc. Not sure what the deal was with that.
    Curious items but probably not worth a fortune.

    Hello there,

    I recently acquired a ROBERTET bottle of perfume (unopened). It, you will see, comes w/a velvet or velveteen bag. Attached are some pics.

    I (like the original poster) cannot find anything about this item. Inquires to Robertet in NYC and France has recd no reply. There is nothing at all on the Web that resembles this item.

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you kindly.
    Pabo
