Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

Henri Quenvil

Henri Quenvil was a French artist working from the early 1900s til the 1930s.  Quenvil produced beautiful glassware and porcelain with thickly applied polychrome enamel in the manner.His style is like that of Robj, Andre Delatte, Marcel Goupy, Argy Rousseau, Mayozer. and others.

Items marked with the Quenvil signature are very rare. Marcel Franck supplied the hardware for Quenvil, and Quenvil's enameled perfume atomizers are shown in a 1924 Marcel Franck catalog. One of the motifs was named "Fuschias"..The perfume atomizers can be quite rare to find.

Les Arts français: arts, métiers, industrie - Volumes 1-12 - Page 94, 1917:
"Les émaux et peintures à froid de Quenvil (verrerie) : c'est une maison qui a sept mois, le patron est élève des Arts décoratifs, jeune, chercheur : ses formes curieuses, coloris un peu vifs, mais il faut retenir ce nom. Ses peintures sur verre.."

"Enamels and cold paints Verreries Quenvil: This is a house that has seven months, the young leader of Decorative Arts student researcher's curious shapes, colors a little bright, but remember that name. Paintings on glass."
