Welcome!

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.

Ravel Perfume Corp

Ravel was established by Aizic Manole in the 1940s after his partnership in the Legrain perfumery company was dissolved just before the second world war. Ravel also produced cosmetics such as nail polish.

The name Ravel was chosen after the name composer and subsequently Ravel released several perfumes with names taken from famous songs of the era such as "Bolero" by Ravel. The perfume Faun was inspired by the Debussy classic "Afternoon of a Faun."
