Whoever said the intro date was 199? was mistaken, unless it had been retired and re-relased. I was born in 1950 and one of the first fragerances I remember was my grandma wearing Evenin in Paris when she went to church. It was her favorite perfume when she passed away in 1975. What joy to find in 1994 a little blue bullet purse bottle with a gold top and gold tassel! Since it had been in the bottom of my mother's cedar chest all that time it still was usable. Ever so often I will dab a bit on and sniff! It brings such beautiful memories of two wonderful women who touched my life as this fragerance touched theirs!
Evening In Paris was the perfume my mother used. It was in a small dark blue bottle with a silver label and a silver lid. That was many years ago but she let me have a dab sometimes and I always loved the smell. Cant wait to have my own bottle now!
Evening in Paris Perfume, I knew it as Soir de Paris. It was one of the first perfumes that I brought when I started work and as I recall not too expensive. I remembered it in the dark blue bottle, smelt heavenly, not too overpowering. It envoked wonderful memories for me. I not sure if you can still buy it. I only hope that that they haven't messed with the original formula like they have done with other perfumes eg Lumiere (which is also one of my favourites). They should bring it back as it was a nice perfume.
I haven't tried it yet, I still have some from 1955 and it smells the same as the day my boyfriend gave me for my birthday,I also have the dusting powder. I would like a sample of what u have now. I am sure my bottle i have is worth something, especially since it has the same delightful fragrant that still lingers on u.Please make sample of the fragrant u have now, i am curous to see if its the same.

Evening in Paris. I recieved this fragrance when i was 17 as a xmas gift from a very nice boy friend it was glorious then. I am dissapointed to hear it has changed. perfection should not be tampered with. it was perfect in 1949 .

I remember back in the 40's, my grandmother would take me shopping, and back then, we bought evening in paris at mccroys five and dime, it was only 2.99 at that time. I always loved the cute little blue bottle it was in. we loved it, and was so surprized when I found you have it.. I wish I could find a bottle now, i'm sure it has changed like most things. The price is much more to I suppose. I also use to have a favorite perfume, given to me by a man I was dating, and I loved it. Arpeige, I don't know who makes it, but I really liked it, its probably very expensive now. That was in the early 1970,s.now I like Treasor and Beauitful. thanks. m wood
I have looked for years for the original Evening in Paris that my mother wore and had sitting on her dresser. The little dark blue bottle with a gold cap and heavenly scent. The designer should bring this one back. It is never wise to mess with perfection. Please go to back to archives and bring the original back...scent and design....believe me it will be a success!!!

I remember my Mother would get this for our Teachers as Christmas Presents back in the early 60's. Maybe it wasn't the same as in the 40's or 50's. I would like to try Evening In Paris. But, would like it in the little bottles. That is how I remember Evening In Paris.

I totally agree with the first reviewer. It is not the "Evening in Paris" I remember--it smells now like bug spray. I got it for Christmas and never wear it. What were they thinking? Did anyone at Bourjois smell it?

Like many women of a certain age, I remember Evening in Paris with fondess. THIS is not your mother's Evening in Paris--I found it sharp and not at all as appealing as the original. I doubt I will ever wear it again. It is a huge disappointment.
