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, Paris and Mori were affiliated to Parfums d'Anjou, Paris. They shared a perfume name in common - Nuits Folles. Mori and d'Anjou shared the Reve d'Amour perfume name.

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:
