Flambeau by Faberge c1955

Flambeau by Faberge: launched in 1955.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is a floral chypre with oriental notes. A blend of pink and white roses with jasmine.
  • Top notes: aldehydes, bergamot
  • Middle notes: gardenia, carnation, rose, jasmine, ylang ylang, orris
  • Base notes: vetiver, patchouli, sandalwood, oakmoss, vanilla, benzoin, musk

In addition to perfume and cologne, Flambeau was also available in bath and body products such as soap, talcum powder, dusting powder and bath oil.

The cologne bottles are topped by translucent red Bakelite/Catalin (reminds me of root beer or tortoiseshell prystal but more red) screw caps with black marbling inside that look like wisps of smoke to me. I have had several of these over the years and held the caps under hot water and could smell the distinctive Bakelite formaldehyde scent.

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown. Still being sold in 1977.
