    Oh, now you've done it! LOL!!! I am sure these are just the first, now you will find others:)
    Looks like a nice Coty perfume, looks full? Perhaps never opened, that's good! And commercial perfumes with intact labels, also good! I don't have that many with the perfume in them, most are in the same cabinet, and when I open the door the scents emerge!!! :):). Wow!

    Great beginning!

    Wonderful find!! Small one is "L'Aimant" ("Magnet"), the first commercial fragrance introduced by the celebrated perfumer Francois Coty, launched 1927. Flacon designed by Rene Lalique! Flacon was used for other Coty fragrances as well, as you see below.

    Some fragrance notes for L'Aimant. Top notes: bergamot, neroli, peach, and aldehydes. Heart: geranium, rose, orchid, jasmine and ylang-ylang. Base: vetiver, musk, vanilla, sandalwood, tonka bean and cedar." (Fragrance notes cited from "Frangrantica" website: http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Coty/L-Aimant-10934.html )

    Tall polygon flacon contains "Intermezzo", here produced by Fibah. Fibah's scent was introduced in 1950. There were other "Intermezzo" fragrances produced by other firms. Scherck brought one to market in 1929, and (according to http://www.perfumeintelligence.co.com / "Perfume Intelligence - The Encyclopedia of Perfume") "Parfums d'Arcy" produced one in 1950, and Dubarry Parfumerie also produced one -- date unknown to me.

    Cleopatra's Boudoir had a marvelous online guide to commercial perfumes on eBay Guides (since withdrawn), and I presume that she still has this information available to the public on her own website. However, one now has to be a member to access her site, so I do not know for sure whether this remarkable 'database' is still available to the public. If you are going to collect perfume bottles, it would be an excellent idea to join. A link to her website follows. Below that is a link to the website for the International Perfume Bottles Association, a most excellent resource for those who collect perfume bottles.

    Bottle displayed in final photo contains "Straw Hat" by Parfums Fabergé. "Straw Hat" was introduced and/or discontinued circa 1938, and reintroduced in 1963. I recognize the bottle shape because as a child I was given a bottle of "Straw Hat" to play with. A friend had received it as a gift, and didn't care for it, so I got to play with it. It was actually the only Fabergé fragrance that I cared for. The cap on some of these was covered with a straw matting; and on some others with various festive Summer floral fabrics. I suspect that your cap probably once had this covering, too. Your bottle has an old font / text placement style -- I do not know how old.

    Thank You all so much! You have no idea how much your knowledge has me super excited! I have butterfly's in my stomach I'm so excited. Is that Normal?

    You're very welcome! Thank you for posting these wonderful flacons! Yes, they are very exciting. If Cleopatra's Boudoir is operated as it once was, there will be no membership charge. The IPBA membership annual dues are $45.oo per year. That gives you access to their superb Archivist/Researcher, and other resources. It would be well worth your while to join. It's amazing how literate their members are. Someone somewhere will be able to help you with the 'Moon' flacon you have listed. : )

    As for "normal", I don't understand how anyone is immune to the charms of perfume bottles, but some people are. : ) You've already got a great starter collection!!!
