The goal of this website is to show the present owners of the Prince Matchabelli company how much we miss the discontinued classics such as Golden Autumn 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.

  1. If I close my eyes and think of those moments just after putting on Golden Autumn, I'm 17 again and it's fall. If I ever smelled it again I think my heart would ache...but it would be worth it. It was truly Autumn in a bottle. The best Autumns of my life.
