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 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.

Mori and Valmy Perfumes

Mori, Paris was established in 1908 in Paris France and may have been affiliated to Fontanis. Mori perfumes were imported into the USA by Parfums Francais, Inc of New York.

They closed in 1931. I am wondering if they were either absorbed by another company named Valmy or if the company name was changed to Valmy around 1933, as some of Valmy's perfumes had the same names as Mori such as Pour Toi, Viens, L'Heure de Minuit.



Now I am also wondering if Valmy, and Mori were affiliated to Parfums d'Anjou, Paris. They shared a perfume name in common - Nuits Folles.

Valmy & D'Anjou shared two perfume names:

  • Viens
  • L'Heure de Minuit

Mori & D'Anjou shared a two perfume names:

  • Reve d'Amour
  • Toi et Moi 




Also Odeon, Paris.

All four perfume company's logos were designed identically.

Many of Mori's, d'Anjou's, and Valmy's perfumes were housed in Baccarat crystal flacons. d'Anjou's Reve d'Amour was housed in a bottle by Rene Lalique.

Now the perfume company Maudy shared a bottle design with Mori for their perfume Idylle which was made up of opaque white Baccarat crystal and trimmed in thick gold enamel. Maudy also shared a bottle design with one of Odeon's perfumes:
