Sampter’s opened its doors for business in 1925. This cologne was created with that entrepreneur spirit! Sampter’s 1925 embodies a rich masculine fragrance with overtures of wood, musk and vanilla. The owl on the packaging commemorates the store mascot. Legend has it that the owl was placed on the very peak of the building in 1890 by Gerald Sampter’s father, Nathan Sampter. It was believed that good luck would follow.
