Chez Poiret by Rosine c1912

Chez Poiret by Rosine: launched in 1912.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It was classified as a sweet floral fragrance for women, similar to L'Origan by Coty.
  • Top notes:
  • Middle notes: carnation and violet
  • Base notes: vanilla, sandalwood, amber, benzoin


Presented in a demilune bottle, topped with a green glass stopper molded with four lines. The baudruchage cording would pass over these lines and down around the neck of the bottle to seal it and ended with four knotted tassels which spread out over the curve of the bottle.

Harper's Bazaar, Volume 56, 1921:
"Poiret continues to put out delicious fragrances; one of his latest, “Chez Poiret. Rosine,” is inimitably bottled in a half sphere with an emerald glass stopper and "Nuit de Chine," luxurious and oriental.."

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown.
