Federal supplement. [First Series.] - Volume 593:, 1985:
"Houbigant has announced plans to market, beginning in August, 1984, a line of cosmetics and fragrances (perfumes) to be called "Lutece."
Fate of the Fragrance:
In 1995, with the acquisition of Dana Parfums, Lutece was marketed under the Dana name instead of Houbigant. Some people say that there is a slight difference between the two fragrances, but most people say it is quite close to the original formula.
