Object of Desire: The Vintage Perfume Almanac
I don't collect perfume ephemera but these old perfume almanacs are gorgeous enough to almost make me feel sorry about it. In case you don't know much about them, these almanacs are like company catalogs and they can be lavishy illustrated. Perfume almanacs contain invaluable information often lost to history including every detail of the manufacture's complete product line, sizes, prices, 'flavors', display and packaging information. If you collect these rare documents, this outstanding lot is being offered by seller thenepo at Ebay right now. Search under 'perfume almanac' and it should come right up- but be prepared to pay for your pretties.
The Vintage Perfume Vault, where the scent of yesterday's vogue lives.
