The goal of this website is to show the present owners of the Corday company how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back the perfume!


Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the perfume, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories), who knows, perhaps someone from the company might see it.

Blanchette by Corday c1924

Blanchette by Corday: launched in 1924. Named after Blanche Avroy, owner of Jovoy and Corday.

 The perfume was first sold under the Jovoy name in 1920, but was later used by Corday with a slightly altered formula.

Blanchette was also available in a scented face powder.


Fragrance Composition:


So what does it smell like? I have no published notes on this composition. The perfume was described as "frivolous".

  • Top notes:
  • Middle notes:
  • Base notes:


Bottles:



The deluxe bottle for Blanchette is of ivory milk glass. I believe it has a gilded stopper and gilded serigraphy. 






This bottle top is porcelain and in the shape of a seated woman, base which makes up the "cushion" is glass. The porcelain figure is lifted up when one wishes to uncork the flacon. 


Fate of the Fragrance:


Discontinued, date unknown. Still being sold in 1929.
