Marrakech c1947

Marrakech by Lancome: launched in 1947. Created by Armand Petitjean.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It was classified as a seductive floral oriental perfume for women with a dominant rose note on a leather base.
  • Top notes: bergamot, aldehydes, orange
  • Middle notes: rose, jasmine, orange blossom
  • Base notes: leather, amber, oakmoss, vanilla, benzoin, tonka, sandalwood, labdanum, musk


The bottle designed by Marc Lalique, but the technical problems were too great. He passed the project to Georges Delhomme and the bottle was made by the Maurice Annebicque glassworks.

The Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, dates unknown. Still being sold in 1959.
