4711, Mäurer & Wirtz - 1779

Tech­ni­cally an eau de cologne, nei­ther cool nor sexy but en­thu­si­as­ti­cally old-fash­ioned.

Jicky, Guer­lain - 1889

The old­est, con­tin­u­ously pro­duced per­fume has notes of spice, lemon, laven­der, wood and vanilla.

Mit­souko, Guer­lain - 1919

Top notes of berg­amot, mid­dle notes of peach, clove, rose, jas­mine and iris, with base notes of ve­tiver, oak moss and lab­danum.

Shal­i­mar, Guer­lain - 1921

This ori­en­tal fra­grance with am­ber-woody notes was pop­u­lar with flap­per girls in the 1920s, giv­ing it a risqué rep­u­ta­tion.

No 5, Chanel - 1921

Cit­rus top notes along­side rose, jas­mine, vanilla and alde­hy­des were enough for Mar­i­lyn to turn this into a clas­sic.
