Background Caron: In the early years of the turn of the century, Ernest Daltroff, was beginning to get fascinated by scent and fragrance creation.
This store is a collection of vintage perfume bottles from the estate of Marie-Louise Fredyma, my mother who passed away in 2010 after nearly 70 years in the antique business.
Marie's perfumes were a special place in her collection of antiques and vintage items and are now offered for sale as part of her estate. The items belong to another person that has asked me to list them for sale.He liked the name and decided it would be easy for his customers to pronounce in any language and remember as well as looking good on packaging.The perfume Royal Emilia was renamed Royal Caron in 1904..So in 1903, Daltroff purchased a perfumery in Asnieres called Parfumerie Emilia, a northwestern suburb of Paris, Daltroff's first perfume was named Royal Emilia, after the shop.His business was such a success that he purchased another small perfumery and haberdashery store from Anna-Marie Caron, called the Magasin Caron at 10 rue de la Paix, in the fashionable heart of Paris and renamed it Parfumerie Caron.This bottle was so popular that it was being copied by other companies for their own versions of Narcisse perfumes.
