Bottles embossed with or having labels marked "Made in Occupied Japan" were made from September 1945 until April 1952.
Enameled lettering, also known as serigraphy (instead of labels), on glass bottles started being used after the 1930s and was pretty regular feature in the 1940s onward.
So, you've taken the plunge and splurged on a big bottle of your all-time favorite scent, the classic Chanel No. You take it home and, after an inaugural spritz, place it gently on top of your dresser, right in front of a lovely picture window, where it will be displayed for years to come.
But then a terrible thought suddenly springs to mind. Will I be able to finish the bottle, or will it spoil before I get my money's worth? It all depends on the scent's chemical composition, but they do tend to break down and oxidize over time.
So if you want your perfume to last, you need to store it in a cool, dark place.
Room temperature, according to some, is even a bit warm.
Heck, people think it strange that I would like perfumes, but hey, I like fountain pens, I like singing, I like dancing in my room when no one’s looking (well, sometimes even when others are in the room), I like reading Philosophy and countless other things.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here 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!
