Decades of Fragrance - NEW Rollerballs!

We are so pleased to bring back our beautiful fragrances in our new roller ball packaging! Easy to use and perfect for on the go! Unsure of which scent is for you? We can help!

Our Decades of Fragrance Collection is the fruit of 6 years of research and exploration by our founder Gabriela, to bring you the essence of each decade featured in the collection. We wanted to give you an olfactory picture of a decade of time, using familiar ingredients from each period to create an impression in your mind of a time gone by. Each perfume extract is meticulously crafted from precious essential oils and natural vegan alcohol. Be transported to your favorite era with each of our intoxicating scents.

1910 - This formal and sentimental scent is innocent and sweet. The last decade of bustles, whalebone corsets and long ruffled skirts mean a fragrance that is elegant, refined and perfect for an afternoon tea. 1910 is fresh citrus top notes, floral heart notes of tuberose and jasmine, and deep base notes of sandalwood and vanilla. Think art nouveau, belle époque and romance.  

Top Notes: Lemon, Orange-flower, Ylang-Ylang. Heart Notes: Tuberose, Saffron, Jasmine, Peony. Base Notes: Nubuck, Vanilla, Civet, Sandalwood.

1920 - This flirtatious, liberated and naughty scent is all Hollywood. Think secret speakeasy nights, rumors and scandals. Women had the vote and began to cut off their long locks, shorten their hemlines and dance the night away. 1920 is all razzle dazzle with Mandarin and floral top notes finished with a musky base. Think Gatsby, freedom, florals, and amber.

Top Notes: Mandarin, Juniper Berry, Galbanum. Heart Notes: Jasmine, Violet, Muguet, Suede. Base Notes: Cocoa, Myrrh, Amber, Musks.

1930 - Danger, dark and glamour. This decade was the start of transformation. The Hollywood starlet became the beauty ideal and makeup was at the forefront. 1930 is a heady blend of Oriental spices, cinnamon, heliotrope, vanilla and cedar. Think Marlene Dietrich, cigarettes, secrets and a midnight rendezvous with a handsome stranger.

Top Notes: Mandarin, Cinnamon, Clarysage. Heart Notes: Tobacco, Heliotrope, Lavender. Base Notes: Vanilla, Cedarwood, Musks.

1940 - This scent is poignant and optimistic. We call it “The Bombshell”. Despite the war, women were hopeful and used their beauty to inspire courage and heart in the face of the fight. Tart green citrus top notes, rose and clove heart notes and a lingering sandalwood and amber base note make this scent a joy to wear all day. Think worldly, intelligence, strength and smarts.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Cognac, Davana. Heart Notes: Rose, Clove, Labdanum. Base Notes: Sandalwood, Amber, Benzoin.

1950 -  Refined and sophisticated. The golden age of makeup and Hollywood glamour. Inspired by Billie Holiday, gardenias and pristine vanilla. This floral, powdery scent is sweet and exceptionally fresh. Top notes of mango and freesia then deepen to white notes of gardenia and tuberose and finish with vanilla and musk. Think pearl necklaces, pastel cashmere twinsets, and ladylike grace.

Top Notes: Mandarin, Mango, Freesia. Heart Notes: Gardenia, Frangipani, Tuberose. Base Notes: Vanilla, Cashmere Wood, Musks.

1960 - This slightly bohemian blend balances classic and counter-culture. Experimenting with makeup and color, the women of the decade were bolder and braver than ever before. Refreshingly bright top notes of rose and jasmine permeate with earthy, exotic patchouli. A mix of the ancient spice and silk routes of the past with modern florals of the future. Think chypre floral, The Graduate, pastel lipstick and summer.

Top Notes: Grapefruit, Armoise, Coriander. Heart Notes: Rose, Resada, Jasmine. Base Notes: Patchouli, Oud, Oakmoss.

I started as a lipstick customer then found the 1940 perfume. The lipsticks are great don’t get me wrong and they last, I’ve had a bunch for the last few years and they never seem to run out. But the perfume is different it runs out faster and now there’s no sales? And I’ve been told they’re coming back so many times it’s just an outright lie now. At least give customers notice that the products are discontinued. Give them option where to find a similar perfume scent. I’d keep buying from besame then. But this, I’m sorry I don’t have time for. The closest and still no where near 1940 fragrance is Versace Noir… and I had to take my last bit of 1940 to the perfume assistant to have them smell it to figure out the closest replacement. You’ve lost a loyal customer.

Y’all I am BEGGING YOU, I fell in love with a sample of the 1910 and have been scouring the internet for it! Please bring it back, it honestly is like…. art nouveau in a bottle. Even as a limited edition!

Hannah October 09, 2020

For those wanting the discontinued rollerballs, I just learned Dark Garden in SF has them still in stock! All except the 1940s. It’s not on their website – give the SF shop a call or email boutique@darkgarden.com. I’m totally snatching up that 1930 fragrance. I have the sampler and wear it all the time, I love it! And YES, Besame, bring them back!

Annabelle October 09, 2020

Please, please, please bring these back! I adore the 1910 and 1950 and would love to buy more!

Cathy October 09, 2020

1930 is my absolute favorite fragrance ive ever had! its so sad because my toddler dropped and shattered my perfume so i didn’t even get to enjoy the full vial :’( and then right after it was discontinued. I used to get sooo many compliments. man, i will 10000% buy this from anyone if they have it. please please PLEASE start selling the perfumes again.

Priscilla September 21, 2020

Like everyone, I’m begging for you to bring these back.

The 1920’s scent brings such joy to me since the old bundle of this with the blood red lipstick reminds me of my first time being in college.

Brianna September 14, 2020

1920 is my all-time favorite perfume EVER, and I only have one little rollerball bottle left. I loved all of the rest of these as well. The cute little shop I discovered these at gave me their little tester bottles because they did not have the perfumes anymore. Please bring these back! I would get rid of all of my other perfumes and just buy these and be happy! Pretty please with a cherry on top ❤️

Heather September 14, 2020

I have to say the same as the rest of the commenters here. I bought the samplers a while ago and the 1950s scent is my favorite. The pandemic threw me off, as well as fear of losing my job and now that I’ve come back to purchase it, I see these have been discontinued? Please bring them back!

Larissa September 03, 2020

Please please please bring back these fragrances!! They are so special and i can’t find anything else which comes close!
I love my 1940’s one, and asked for 1920 & 1930 for Christmas 2 or 3 years ago…but you seem to have stopped selling them. I’ve written half a dozen times and been told that they ARE coming back…but when? pray tell? :) xx
