On my first visit to Paris (1948) this was the perfume that I had to find for my sister-in-law (couldn't get it in England after the war). You would not believe how many shops I visited trying to track it down.

Madeline

This was "MY" perfume - why was it ever discontinued.

Perfumaniac

I know, Madeleine. You can still buy it, though. It might not be exactly the same with age, but its still quite beautiful.Try eBay or miniatureperfumeshoppe.com

When I was a young girl , my mother always smelled of
the original perfume, crepe du chene, by Jean Patou.
I have tried for years to find this perfume again, &
only just now discovered it was remade by Millot.
What a lovely perfume. Can you buy it somewhere &
how much is it?

Perfumaniac

Hi Jewel,

Crepe de Chine by F. Millot was actually the first: 1925. Patou's Crepe de Chine came out in 1935, according to the UK-based perfume encyclopedia Perfume Intelligence. I had never heard of the Patou version! I checked on eBay and couldn't find it (the Patou, that is). The F. Millot is readily available. Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!

WHEN I WAS A VERY YOUNG GIRL MY MOTHER WORE CREPE DE CHINE. I LOVED ITS AROMATIC, FLOATING, DREAMY AND OUT OF THIS WORLD SCENT.AND I ENJOYED LOOKING AT THE BEAUTIFUL ELEGANT AND IRREDESENT GREEN COLOR BOTTLE.SHE USED TO HAVE 3 KIND OF SIZES. LARGE, MEDIUM AND SMALL. I STILL REMEMBER THIS DEIGHTFUL PERFUME AROUND MY AURA AND IN THE CHAMBER OF MY HEART.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHERE I COULD GET. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR ME TO SMELL THIS PERFUM AND FEEL MY MOTHER AGAIN.
MILLION OF BLESSINGS AND THANKS! SALMA

Kisa

This was my fragrance in the late 60s and early 70s. My first serious scent. I remember those NYC bus ads well. Does anyone know who designed the bottle?

DeeDee

I can barely remember the scent, but I CAN remember how heavenly it was! All I ever had was one of those little tall round sample bottles, but it was the best perfume I've ever smelled. I'd love to be able to get it again, but where?

DeeDee

If I could get an original bottle of Crepe de Chine that was sealed, would it still be usable?

Perfumaniac


Hi DeeDee, it wouldnt even need to be sealed. Ideally boxed and kept away from light and heat. Ive had good luck with them. Go to eBay and find someone with a good score. You should be able to find one thats not too expensive. Just shop around, and make sure you type Im vintage..,good luck
