Hello and welcome! Please understand that this website is not affiliated with Caron in any way, it is only a reference page for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

The main objective of this website is to chronicle the history of the Caron fragrances and showcase the bottles and advertising used throughout the years.

However, one of the other goals of this website is to show the present owners of the Caron perfume company how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the current Caron brand might see it.

La Fete des Roses by Caron c1936

La Fete des Roses (The Festival of Roses) by Caron was launched in 1936. Created by Ernest Daltroff.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is a rich, floral fragrance for women with a dominant sweet rose note. It was based on blend of Bulgarian rose, May rose, and Damask rose with a dose of Anatolian carnation and geranium resting on a base of vanilla, musk and vetiver. Spicy and rosy...refined and elegant.
  • Top notes: geranium
  • Middle notes: Anatolian carnation, Bulgarian rose, May rose, Damask rose, lilac, iris, violet
  • Base notes: orris, vanilla, musk, vetiver


Presented in a bottle designed by Félicie Vanpouille. Two versions of this bottle exist, the original clear glass version and a luxury version which was released as a special collector's edition in 1949 which was given an all over gilded enamel finish.
