Wind Song by Prince Matchabelli
Wind Song Cologne & Perfumes
What makes a person unforgettable? Is it their great smile or the softness of their skin?
Do they have a face that isn't easily forgotten with a voice that sounds like angels? Or is it a fragrance like Wind Song that captivates you and pulls you into always thinking about them?
Prince Matchabelli seemed to think that the way a person smells will simply make you so irresistible that you are always on someone's mind. Did he have a point? Was the prince right?

What's that smell? - Are people really drawn to one another through the sense of smell? I think they are. What do you think?
Is it possible that a fragrance can change a relationship?
Who was Prince Matchabelli?
Once upon a time...well, there really was a prince who designed wonderful fragrances and called them the Prince Matchabelli perfume line.
His name was Prince George V. Matchabelli who was once a Georgian prince of the Soviet Union and ambassabor to Italy in the 1920s. He later came to the United States after the Russian Revolution. While the Prince and his wife Princess Norina (who was an actress and went by the stage name of Maria Carmi) lived in New York City, they opened a quaint antique shop on Madison Avenue called Le Rouge.
However, it wasn't until 1926 that the amateur chemist, Prince George began the Prince Matchabelli Perfume Company, in which all his perfumes were specifically designed for his elite clientel. Some of them I'm sure passed this tradition down to their daughters and family members.
His first perfume was called Princess Norina named after his wife, followed by Queen of Georgia and then Ava Maria. Oh how every girl would love to have his honor given to her.
Soon after Princess Norina began designing the crown shaped bottles, which became a signature for the company's perfumes. The Matchabelli family crown design was introduced in 1928, and so the love affair with the prince began.
For me, this bottle says it all and I truly feel royally loved each time I have received one of these treasures. They are very rare now and hard to find, so if you do come across one of them ... don't give up the crown!

Your Windsong Stays on My Mind ...
Vintage Wind Song TV Commercial
In 1956 Prince Matchabelli created a fragrance that is still on the minds of the customer.
I remember when growing up seeing fragrance commercials, but I have to tell you ... the Wind Song bits really stuck with me.
You may not know who he was, but perhaps this Wind Song commercial is one you never forgot. If anything I can imagine that you've heard the song.
Every Princess wears Matchabelli
Their Wind Song claim: As Individual as you.
Wind Song in Triplicate
I haven't seen this combination in some time for this price. A great value for the travel size cologne, body lotion and dusting powder that can be refilled!
Please note that it is a cologne and not the light body spray that comes in this packaged gift set. However, if you want the Wind Song body spray it does come in a travel size as well. I absolute love these!
You were always on my mind...
You were always on my mind.
Want your "prince" to notice you?
For the buyer ... this is a cologne not a perfume. It has a extremely strong scent not like the Wind Song body spray.
So if you want to be noticed, this product will definitely do it. You don't need to put on much of it; just a little spritz and you're good for the day.

To further show how much I believe in this product I'd like to share a true incident with you that happened recently while shopping in a department store.
I was walking past a woman and out into the main aisle of the store when a woman came up to me and asked,
"What perfume are you wearing?"
"None ... it's Wind Song dusting powder."
"You smell great! I'll have to get some of that!"
Wind Song Dusting Power
Wind Song dusting powder is the perfect addition to any cologne you want to use. Immediately after drying off from your shower, pat it on all over the body. Then wear your favorite perfume ... it does not clash with it!
Use it alone for a clean fresh fragrance all day.
Comes in a pretty plastic container that can be reused after removing the liner.

Prince Matchebelli and Wind Song Today
Prince George sold his perfume company in 1936. Currently the Prince Matchebelli perfume company is owned by the Parfumes de Coeur company who purchased it in 1993. (For more details on the sale of the company please visit the Wikipedia site under his name. Photographs are either mine or royalty free.)
The company has been sold several times over the years, but still remains one of the top selling perfumes and colognes. Wind Song under the Matchabelli name was introduced into the public selling market in 1953. It is described as a blend of floral fragrances with a fruity middle tones. A touch of amber and musk scents are also in there, but frankly I don't smell that at all.
The body spray is light and often used for day, while the cologne for evening wear because it is a much heavier and strong scent.
So as you can see Wind Song has made a big impact on the public, and I suppose it will keep on bringing people together. Thanks for joining me for "that something I just can't live without." Yes, Wind Song "is still on my mind."
