1920s - 1940s MASSIVE ARCHIVE OF ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT FORMULAE, RECIPES AND PROCEDURES FOR MAKING 1000+++ OF PERFUMES AND FRAGRANCE RELATED PRODUCTS SUCH AS COLOGNES, SOAPS, EAU DE TOILETTE +++1929
On offer is an original, massive archive of 1000++ of formulas, recipes and chemical breakdowns for fragrances and related cosmetic products such as perfumes, scented soaps, colognes, toilet water, face cream, shaving soap +++. The archive is comprised of ten 9 x 7 inch binders filled with up to 200 pages each and one index binder making for as many as 1500 or more pages filled with specifics for creating a host of fragrance and fragrance products. The recipes were compiled from early to mid 1900s and then secreted to a safety deposit box until recently rediscovered a few years ago attesting to the importance and value placed on these chemical formulae. The mostly handwritten recipes include many exclusive products for famous perfume shops in major cities all over the world including North and South America: Columbia, Peru, Havana, New York etc. [Many formulas show the name and location of special shops which have private labels and scents.] Research and anecdotal information leads us to believe that these recipes were created by an unknown top Jewish chemist who brought these out of Europe just prior to World War II. While the chemist is unknown we are certain in depth research and careful scrutiny of the names mentioned may yield enough clues to identify the creator of this precious archive. Overall G+.
