    Smile Wana-Ranee by Grossmiths of London

    Hi, I am new to this site, so may be in the wrong area, my question is this, Is Wana-Ranee by Grossmiths of London collectable? I have a glass bottle which is three quarters full
    in a cardboard tube style of box. It is in good condition considering it is probably one hundred years old! Does anyone know anything about this perfume?

    It's not one I've heard of. Around here, anything that smells good is collectible. I'd be curious to try it.

    There's a good thread around here somewhere about those old Grosssmiths, and their modern resurrection. Lots of good photos in it, too.

    Edit: Couldn't find the thread, it probably had some title that I don't recall well enough to search for it. I remember that I got involved in it because I'd gotten a sample of the modern version of Grossmith's Shem-el-Nesseim.

    Here are a couple of articles about the couple that revived the house. They might lead you to some links to other info.
