This year's tidying up turned up a selection of old favorites, rarities, discontinued, and vintage Alkemia perfumes that we are delighted to offer to the collector and the curious. Labels will vary with some having a special Alkemia Vintage Label and others having their original artwork/painting labels.
Many of these only have a few bottles available. Items are not held in your shopping cart so we suggest completing checkout of anything particularly coveted to avoid disappointment.
