Evening in Paris Cologne

Description
Ernest Beaux created the perfume “Soir de Paris” (“Evening in Paris”) for French perfumer Bourjois in 1928. Established in Paris in 1863 to manufacture make up and face powders, Bourjois has been making perfume since 1900. “Evening in Paris” was originally sold in a cobalt blue bottle designed by Jean Helleu. The scent was discontinued in the late 1960s, and revived and reformulated by Chanel in the early 1990s.

Comments

When i was a little girl (9-10) my mother gave my sister and I "Evening in Paris " perfume. We loved it.I am 57 years old i have searched and i have not seen it sold in stores. I would love to get some and to give for my sister. This brings back some good memories.
