The Gone, But Not Forgotten Series

The Gone But Not Forgotten Series

The Gone But Not Forgotten Series

The Gone But Not Forgotten Series pays tribute to the wonderful, weird and downright wacky perfumes that, for whatever reason are no longer with us. Each edition in the series serves as a fragrant obituary, celebrating the quirks and intricacies of perfumes that were too far ahead of their time to succeed in the high-volume and quick-buck world of the fragrance industry.

Discontinuation may have ensured that these perfumes are no longer available in your local department store but they are far from being obsolete - consider them as the concepts for which many other, more successful perfumes can take their inspiration, diluting them in to more palatable, and easy-to-understand smells.

Here’s to the gone but not forgotten!
