Bouquet Antique by Ciro c1923

Bouquet Antique by Ciro: launched in 1924.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a soft, spicy floral oriental fragrance for women. It was suggested to be worn by brunettes.


Bouquet Antique was housed in a beautiful round shaped bottle with a ground glass stopper molded in the shape of a flower with drooping petals. The stopper is adorned with blue and gold enamel.

Bottles were available in various sizes:

  • 5" tall bottle held 8 oz of Eau de Toilette
  • 3.5" tall bottle held 2.5 oz of Parfum
  • 2.75" tall bottle held held 1 oz of Parfum
  • 1 3/8" tall (this mini did not appear until 1930)

Hearst's, 1928:
"All the Ciro Perfumes — including Doux Jasmin, Bouquet Antique, and Parfum Maskee — are made, packaged, and sealed in France."

Another bottle was used for Bouquet Antique and was a tall modified version of the round bottle. This newer bottle was cylindrical and tapered at the top, much like a cone, it had a molded, frosted glass stopper also in the shape of a flower. This Art Deco bottle was decorated with blue, yellow and black enamel. Bottle stands 3.25" tall.

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown. Still sold in 1938.
