Les Parfums Godet

Godet Perfumery was established at 37 rue saint-Lazare, Paris in 1901 by Julien-Joseph Godet.






The company sold perfumes, toiletries and cosmetics, such as the popular Ma Poudre (My Powder) in 1911, which proved to be an avant garde presentation for its time.

Godet succeeded in becoming a major international company by 1913, sadly the same year in which Julien-Joseph Godet died. The company was then taken control by his widow Louise and the company's director, Abel Ravaud.

The Rexall Drug Store was the exclusive agent for Godet's perfumes in 1913.

The company won a gold medal at the 1925 Exposition in Paris. The company's perfume bottles displayed some of the finest labels of the era. Baccarat was a supplier for many of their perfume bottles. Other bottles are the red opaque glass flacons made by H. Saumont, these bottles were also used by the Lionceau perfume company for their perfumes.

Other bottles were made by Depinoix.

 More commonly found are the mini dram bottles for various Godet perfumes, these date to the 1920s.

Cristalleries de Baccarat flacons design numbers as follows:

  • #116 which was also used by Annick Goutal
  • #118
  • #280
  • #626





It seems that the Depression and World War II halted production considerably for the company as there are no new perfumes released during these times.
