Shopping for Vintage Fragrances

Does anybody know a good source for vintage fragrances? I can't stand today's stinky perfumes. Give me vintage anytime. Where, besides eBay, can I find them?

Try White Shoulders. You can find it in Walmart. It's been my favorite since the 1950s when a beloved aunt gave it to me for my 15th birthday.

Try Vermont Country Store. You can find them on the web. They even have Arpege.

Ditto Vermont Country Store! If it's still manufactured/available they will most likely have it!

Try Avon. They're still selling some fragrances that I was using when I was selling Avon (one of them was Timeless), and that was over 20 years ago. Good luck!

May 18, 20100 found this helpful for sure for really vintage stuff. But take a look at your local Walmart sometime; I found White Shoulders and Jungle Gardenia at mine.

I feel the same as you about today's fragrances; everything smells like a cookie or a fruit salad!

Be careful if shopping on e-bay for vintage fragrances. I recently bought my favorite of all time vintage fragrance, Blue Hyacinth by Ann Havalin through e-bay. It hasn't been made since the late 60's and a party had a bottle of it. Unfortunately, it didn't smell anything like Blue Hyacinth because of age and evaporation, it smelled just like alcohol with a smelly scent. Stick with Vermont Country Store. I'm hoping they will find my favorite soon.

What are you looking for? some of the real timeless ones can be found at your local upscale stores or even department stores in a larger mall. I found Chanel No. 5 (and fell in love with it) They had Giorgio classic there, too. I dunno, you could always google (a person's online best friend) the name of the perfume you are looking for and call the company/manufacturer and ask them.
