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!

Period Advertisements:

Drug & Cosmetics Industry, 1938:
"PARFUMS CORDAY Corday is introducing "Chevre Feuille," and while honeysuckle is an elusive scent, Corday has succeeded in capturing the delicacy and charm of the flower in this presentation. It is packaged in the same type bottle and box used for Orchidee Bleue."

Drug & Cosmetics Industry, 1939:
"Corday's five eau de cologne floral scents of Sweet Pea, Gardenia, Chevre Feuille, Li las and Jasmin, all make their appearance in a gracefully long-necked flask, with a curving petal-like base and an ivory-tinted stopper."

Harper's Bazaar, 1942:
"Corday's seven imported flower perfumes include, "Chevrefeuille," an old-fashioned honeysuckle fragrance — our favorite and a favorite of many women who like to dramatize their femininity."

Offered in the squatty "Orchidee Bleue" lobed bottle originally designed by Baccarat. Also sold in a miniature cylindrical bottle.
