Bottling the Zeitgeist: Classic Perfumes That Defined Their Eras


Just like works of visual art, fashion, or architecture, perfumes often have stories and styles that endure. From Paris to New York, from the fin de siècle to the Roaring Twenties, World War II, and beyond, explore a half-century of perfumery through five iconic fragrances. We’ll sample these scents while learning who created them, what inspired them, and why they’re considered classics.
