As perfume doth remain In the folds where it hath lain,

So the thought of you, remaining Deeply folded in my brain,

Will not leave me: all things leave me:

You remain.

– Arthur Symons

~A Bit ‘O History ~

  • In 1888, Toledo’s Dr. Allen DeVilbiss developed an atomizer. DeVilbiss used the atomizer to spray a small dose of medicine down the throats of his patients. Later on, the atomizer was repurposed as a spray finisher. In the early 1900s, atomizers began to be used to hold perfume.


  • By the time of World War I, many G.I.’s who were returning home from France through Paris picked up perfumes in atomizer bottles for their sweethearts and wives back home. Today, nearly all liquid perfumes are sold in some sort of atomizer. Decades ago, it was more common to see perfume atomizers with a bulb attached to a cord to pump the perfume through the mister. These days, few perfumes are sold in such receptacles. This is because pressurized atomizers with a bulb are more costly to make, and can become useless is the soft rubber of the pumping bulb is damaged. Read more:
