Ligeia by Babani c1920

Ligeia by Babani: launched in 1920.

"Ligéia, who comes from Manila in her lacquered bottle, powdered with gold, is as mysterious as the one whose memory it evokes."


Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is a "warm and soft" sweet floral fragrance for women with a dominant orchid note. I have no published notes on this composition. I would need a sample to tell you what it smells like.
  • Top notes;
  • Middle notes: orchid
  • Base notes:

It was suggested that you blend Babani's Ambre de Delhi with Ligeia or Ming to create a special perfume. Blend two parts of Ligeia with one of Afghani.


Ligeia was presented in an original flacon lacquered in black and decorated with powdered gold.

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown.
