The goal of this website is to show the present owners of the Houbigant company how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back the perfume!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the perfume, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories), who knows, perhaps someone from the company might see it.

Parfum Inconnu by Houbigant c1910

Parfum Inconnu was launched in 1910 by Houbigant. The perfume was created by Paul Parquet.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? The fragrance was described as a "very fresh scent, reminding one of Spring flowers." I am unable to locate any notes on the composition of the perfume, and I haven't seen this fragrance come up for sale in a while. I would love to smell this if you have any to spare.

  • Top notes:
  • Middle notes: flowers
  • Base notes:


The perfume was housed in an unusual octagonal crystal flacon with a gilded crystal stopper, manufactured by Cristalleries de Baccarat, design # 8.

Fate of the Fragrance:

The perfume was discontinued around 1933 or so.
