Princesse du Nord by Prince Matchabelli c1935

Princesse du Nord by Prince Matchabelli: launched in 1935. It was also known by the name "Katherine the Great" and when coupled with Princesse du Nord, it meant the perfume was named after the famous Russian, Katherine the Great.

So what did it smell like? It was classified as a floral oriental perfume for women.

 I have no published notes on this perfume. It was described as being "nobly scented — yet so utterly feminine. Bouquet fragrance." Also described as ""cool and barbaric like her foreign soul."  I have no published notes on this composition. I would need a sample to tell you what it smells like.

Discontinued, date unknown.

Perfumery and Essential Oil Review, 1937:
"Matchabelli has an unusual and striking bottle in the form of a crown, in which are displayed " Ave Maria," " Abano," and " Psse : du Nord ".
