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.

Petales Froisses by Lanvin c1926

Petales Froisses by Lanvin: launched in 1926. Created by Andre Fraysse. The name means "crushed petals".

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It was classified as a woody floral fragrance for women. I have no notes on this perfume, I would need a sample to tell you what it smells like.

  • Top notes:
  • Middle notes: flowers
  • Base notes: sandalwood

The perfume was being sold at 75 cents a dram in 1931.

Capital Times, 1931:
"Jeanne Lanvin sends her newest perfumes L'Ame Perdue (Lost Soul), Comme ci Comme ca (Like this like that) and her Petales Froisses (Crushed Petals)."

The Straits Times, 20 June 1931:
"The charm of perfumes by Lanvin is impossible to describe. Arpege, Lajea, My Sin, Petales Froisses, in a variety of exquisitely designed bottles have a distinctly exclusive appeal which to me is irresistible."


Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown. Still being sold in 1938.
