Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
We're always delighted when we come across bits and pieces about the "perfume factory" that once existed on Brook Street. It was called COMPAGNIE PARENTO and while no longer in the village, the company is still in existence today. (YOU CAN READ MORE ABOUT THE CROTON SITE HERE.)
According to the company website, Addington Doolittle, founder of Compagnie Parento, Inc. believed it was time to break the American dependency on imported perfumes and start an American manufacturing operation.
Compagnie Parento, Inc. began creating and producing fragrance oils in the United States just after the turn of the 20th century. (For more about COMPAGNIE PARENTO, click here.)
We recently came across some ads and such from assorted perfume and toiletry trade publications back in the day and thought you might have an interest. Click on the images below.
