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 and repository of information 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.

Parfums Ramey

Ramey, established in 1913 at 332 rue Saint-Honore, Paris by Georges Herman as Laboratoires des Produits Radiaces, also established in 1913 by Herman.

The perfumes of Ramey:
  • 1920 Gin
  • 1927 Nuit de Stamboul
  • 1930 Vers L’Amour
  • 1931 Nenufar
  • 1935  Minuit
  • 1935 Ramey
  • Charme Fleuri

The perfume for Nuit de Stamboul was presented in a bottle designed by Julien Viard and made by C. Depinoix et Fils. Clear glass flacon with frosted stopper of partially draped nude maiden.

Nenufar, named after waterlilies, was contained in a beautiful black glass flacon etched with a figure of an African, complete with a small black head with broad smiling mouth and bright eyes, much akin to Golliwogg by Vigny.  Pol Rab designed the bottle for the 1931 Paris Colonial Exposition. The Paris Colonial Exposition (or "Exposition coloniale internationale", International Colonial Exposition) was a six-month colonial exhibition held in Paris, France in 1931 that attempted to display the diverse cultures and immense resources of France's colonial possessions, especially that of North and West Africa.

Minuit (Midnight) was: launched in 1931, black glass bottle w/ molded gilded floral stopper. Gilded label shows nude woman holding a perfume burner.

Gin, launched around 1920, was a fantastic bottle made up of clear glass molded with a basket weave pattern accented with gilding.
