Les Parfums Amiot

Amiot et Cie of 68 rue de Rivoli, Paris, was established in 1862, company sold fragrances, cosmetics and toiletries. Later known as Les Parfums Amiot.

Only known perfume is from 1910, Arôme des Fellahs. A Fellah is another term for a Fellahin, is a Egyptian or Arab farmer. Things concerning the Middle East and Egypt especially have captured the imaginations of perfumers and their inspirations were no doubt some of the finest perfume presentations created and desired amongst those interested in Orientalism, Egyptian and perfume bottles in general.

The smaller purse size bottle was the Aromas des Fellahs Pour Fumeurs, a scent for cigarettes.
