Voyage a Paris by Corday: launched in 1932. In USA by 1935. The perfume was created to be worn with furs.

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a heady floral bouquet fragrance for women accented with spices and citrus zest.
  • Top notes: aldehydes, citrus

Esquire, 1935:
"Men who know Women know Corday . . . they know without being told that every woman's heart quickens at the thought of Voyage a Paris — the perfume favored by the Parisienne . . . *15 the bottle."

The Pittsburgh Press - Dec 21, 1937:
"Gift Perfumes Say, romantically yours -VOYAGE A PARIS . Corday translates the charm of the gayest city in the world - the thrill of beautifully gowned women. $2.28 to $18.00" 

Stage, 1937:
"No "museum" piece is this new triumph by CORDAY. Voyage a Paris is the perfume for women who live with a lilt to the hilt for today — heedless of yesterday — and with a "Nichevo" for tomorrow! For this is a "heady" perfume — reckless  ---with a superb subtlety and a teasing, tantalizing bouquet - a new thrill for Eros and a new pipe for Pan! The magic substance of which glamour is made!"

Drug and Cosmetic Industry, Volume 41, 1937:
"CORDAY Corday has created an eau de Cologne to match the "Voyage a Paris" perfume. It has the same heady, exciting fragrance, remarkably strong and lasting. Its bottle is a replica of the perfume flask, but turned on its side and given a long neck."

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown. Still being sold in 1941.
