Hello and Welcome!

Please understand that this website is not affiliated with the Prince Matchabelli Company any way, it is only a reference page for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

The main objective of this website is to chronicle the history of the Prince Matchabelli fragrances and showcase the bottles and advertising used throughout the years.

However, one of the other goals of this website is to show the present owners of the Prince Matchabelli perfume company how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the current Prince Matchabelli brand might see it.

Also, this website is a labor of love, it is a work in progress and is always being updated with new information as I can find it, so check back often!

Tres L.A. by Prince Matchabelli c1988

Tres L.A. by Impulse/Prince Matchabelli: launched in 1988.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like?  I cannot find a list of the fragrance notes so I am testing a spray from my bottle to tell you what it smells like. I would classify it as a sweet fruity floral fragrance for women with a powdery chypre base. The first spray smells so much like vintage Giorgio by Giorgio Beverly Hills.
  • Top notes: apricot, mandarin, Calabrian bergamot, frangipani, peach
  • Middle notes: gardenia, violet, jasmine, orange blossom, tuberose, ylang ylang
  • Base notes: vanilla, patchouli, Tibetan musk, Mysore sandalwood, Abyssinian ambergris, oakmoss, benzoin

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, early 1990s.
