Hello and welcome! Please understand that this website is not affiliated with Jean Desprez in any way, it is only a reference page for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the Jean Desprez perfume company how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the current Jean Desprez brand might see it.

Perfume Advice from Denis Desprez

In 1977, Denis Desprez, son of Jean Desprez and President of Parfums Desprez had mentioned some very good advice regarding fine perfumes in an interview with the Santa Ana Register newspaper.



  • "Perfume should be kept in a cool place, out of the sunlight, and carefully sealed because heat, sunlight, and air are the three big enemies of fine perfume."
  • "After a bottle of perfume has been opened, a three to four days supply should be put in an atomizer, and then the bottle should be sealed again." 
  • "When the atomizer is empty, rinse it clean with alcohol, dry it, then pour another four days supply into the atomizer . It takes lots of time I know, but it’s the only way to make sure the perfume is conserved perfectly."
  • "Use it on the warm parts of the body, inside the clothes."  
  • "One should never mix two perfumes. If you own clothes with which you used Shalimar last week, these clothes have to be used with Shalimar for life!"
