So what does it smell like? I have no published notes on its composition, other than it was an aldehydic floral fragrance in the vein of Chanel No. 5 and Vol de Nuit.
- Top notes: aldehydes
- Middle notes: flowers
- Base notes:
Harper's Bazaar, 1933:
"Coty's Fougeraie au Crépuscule, Guerlain's Vol de Nuit, Patou's Invitation, Caron's lovely En Avion. Corday's La Promesse, Molyneux's Charm, and Chanel's Ivoire — all of these perfumes have a modern and distinctive quality."
International Associations, 1951:
"MOLYNEUX- N° 5, Magnificence, Chic, Vivre, Rue Royale, Charm, Coffret de 3 Parfums, Eau de Cologne N° 5, Eau de Lavande, Alliance."
Fate of the Fragrance:
Discontinued, date unknown. Still being sold in 1955.
