Harper's Bazaar - Volume 94, 1961:
"NECTAROMA. BATH FRAGRANCE AND BODY JOY Just airborne—a great new fragrance fashion, rich and rare—warm—flashingly brilliant. A few drops in your bath or on your skin surround you with loveliness to herald your approach."

The New Yorker, 1962:
"Tuvaché some time ago brought out a bath perfume, called Nectaroma, that is all outdoors—sunny, grassy, and flowery. Now they've gone and made a perfume of it, to say nothing of all manner of powders and other condiments for the bathtub. They're to be found most everywhere."

Playbill, 1962:
"GOES WITH A WOMAN A fragrance born in the sun, born anew on a woman who loves masses of flowers in every room, the best of everything in life . . . Nectaroma — today's fashion fragrance. Like love, it's indispensable!"

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued for years before being reformulated and relaunched in 2013 by Irma Shorell.
