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.

Velivole by LT Piver was launched in 1910, other sources claim 1912, 1913 as the launch date. Velivole is the French word for "soaring". velivole was a line that included not only parfum and eau de toilette, but bath salts, face powder, concentrees, eaux vegetales/lotion vegetale, soap, rouge, sachet, cream and talc.

The Illustrated London News, 1913:
"VELIVOLE possesses those rare qualities that please the most fastidious taste, and it is a great favourite with Smart Parisiennes. In Gold-engraved Bottles and wrapped tightly in silver jackets."
The Sydney Morning Herald, 1933:
"PIVER'S "VELIVOLE" PERFUME Usually, 22/6 bottle. SPECIAL PRICE .. 6/6 (Postage Extra.)"
The bottle:

The perfume was presented in a clear crystal flacon manufactured by Baccarat (flacon model number 75). The bottle was beautifully decorated by gilded etching, which included the name Velivole. The bottle measures approximately 7cm x 4cm x 8cm ( 3" x 1.5" x 3")
