      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.

      http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Vtg-Antique-1942-COTY-Emeraude-LAimant-LALIQUE-Perfume-Dutch-Wooden-Shoes-/261158735961?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cce461059

      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      Cleopatra's Boudoir had a marvelous online guide to commercial perfumes on eBay Guides (since withdrawn), and I presume that she still has this information available to the public on her own website.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?

      No one gets it but you

      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!!!

      Let me give you some insights about FIBAH and its perfumes. My grandfather from my mother's side: Ruben Caveda Eijo was the Chief Perfumist/Developer at FIBAH from 1950 until the company was taken by Fidel Castro's regime in 1961. While the company was founded in the 1920's by the elder Habif (FIBAH is his name backwards) it wasn't until 1950 that the son of the owner Mauricio Habif took over and hired my grandfather who was a young Cuban chemist specialized in perfumes development. He used to work at the famous Agustin Reyes factory but Mauricio Habit offered hi the opportunity to be in charge of fragrance development. The factory was located at a beautiful estate just outside Havana named Chateau Madrid surrounded by beautiful gardens with peacocks running around. The younger Mr. Habif's idea was to transform the factory into a touristic destination with store, snacks bar and some other amenities so tourists could spend the day there and purchase the items as gifts to take with them. My grandfather created Intermezzo and Chateau Madrid which were launched in the beginnings of the 1950's. He also created MH, a fragrance for women that was branded using Mauricio's initials. There are two other cheap brands developed by my grandfather during the latest years of the 1950's: Clavelito and Riviera... that was the result of Essential Oils damaged by a sabotage perpetrated by one of my grandfather's assistants. They guy injected acid to the oils and the damage was valued at $14,000 USD (a lot of money in 1957. My grandfather convinced Mauricio to drop the charges against his assistant because he didn't want him to go to prison, so he commit to savage the oils and launch a cheap like of cologne, enlisting Clavelito, who was a Cuban radio personality who had a show about spiritual stuff and kind of a psych. Clavelito was the spoke person for Riviera first, and then asked my grandfather to create a cologne using Basil using his name, so he could benefit himself with the promotion. My father found out later that the sabotage was actually directed against him, because the perp was envious about his lifestyle, making a lot of money but spending it on books and collectible music albums rather than having a good life. in 1961, that guy led the company nationalizing with Che Guevara and made sure my grandfather was never employed by the new communist government. They forced my grandfather to retire being just 44 years old. The guy testified he had mental problems and wasn't trustworthy to work for the revolution. He died in 1978 at 61. The Habit family for Puerto Rico and had plans to continue their work there, but my grandfather was afraid of leaving his house and memories behind so he never left. He died in Cuba. In 1955 my grandfather started using the sticks of tobacco plant as a fixative for perfumes. He was very successful doing so and received a lot of coverage from the media. After Castro's government took over, the government patented it, with no credit whatsoever to my grandfather. I was able to purchase a bottle of FIBAH's MH with its original box and have it displayed at my house in a glass case. If anyone knows anything about the Habit family please let me know. I know some of them went to Israel and some others to Puerto Rico.
