The perfume company known as "Goetting & Company" or "Goetting & Co." was acquired by David H. McConnell some time in 1896 in order to secure the services of the chief chemist and owner, Adolph Goetting. The details of the of company acquisition, compensation provided to Mr. Goetting, and the disposition of the Goetting & Co. stock and materials all remain somewhat of a  mystery. However, it is clear that perfumes and toiletries continued to be manufactured under the Goetting label at least until 1918. Following are advertisements found in newspapers from around the country dating from 1905 through 1918.
