I don't know if it still carries the perfume, or cologne, called Evening in Paris. It was popular from the 20' to the 50's, then was discontinured. It's now back in small amounts, and is quite expensive.

I have an empty bottle of the cologne, from before 1926, and there's still a fragrance one can smell. It was saved by my grandmother, who attached a little note to it. "Emil gave me this before we were wed" Emil was, of course, my grandfather. I'm so sentimental, I value stuff like that more that most other possessions.
