New York office
LT Piver, Inc
118 East 16th St
New York City



The company first became involved with the selling of perfumes when they sold perfumed gloves whey were awarded the title of "Parfumeur-Gantier" in 1769. Michel Adam established a small shop at 82 rue de Lombards, Paris between 1769 and 1774 and added A le Reine des Fleurs, to its name, which remained as it's subtitle.

Succeeded by family members, Paul Guillaume and Dissey and later in 1813 by Louis-Toussaint Piver, whose name was adopted as the new company name in 1823. Alphonse Piver succeeded LT Piver . The company participated in all of the major exhibitions in the 19th & 20th centuries. Louis Sue and Andre Mare redesigned the Piver shop in the 1920s and Louis Sue designed Reve D'Or presentation.

Piver was frequently a leader in new perfume designs and concepts. Some of his best known presentations included the most beautiful Alphonse Mucha inspired-Art Nouveau floral graphics for the Floramye, Azurea, and Safranor lines.




Many bottles were produced by Baccarat, namely the bottles for the following perfumes: Astris, Reve D'Or, Volt...

Lalique produced the perfume bottle for Misti in 1912.

Reve D'Or was originally launched in 1889, a soft rich floral fragrance presented in a bottle designed by George Chevalier. Also presented in 1919 in a flacon by Cristalleries de Baccarat design #550. Re-launched in 1926. Also it is the re-branded fragrance Rocroy after 1927.
