Maison Violet/Veolay Perfumes

You can find the perfume company also spelled Veolay. In addition to perfumes, Veolay also manufactured compacts, nail enamel, face powders, talcum powders, bath salts, lipsticks, red, soaps, creams, bath cubes, and other toilet preparations.


Veolay presented some of it's perfumes in crystal bottles produced by well known glassworks. The bottle for Josephine was made by Saint-Louis. Rene Lalique supplied bottles for Niobe.

Brise de Violette was first presented in a bottle by Lucien Gaillard, then in Baccarat crystal (model #1) in 1904. Bouquet Farnèse was first presented in a Lucien Gaillard bottle, and then in a flacon by Baccarat (model # 398). Lucien Gaillard also lent his creativity to the bottles for Farnese, Se Je Lais Reine, L'Heure Jolie, Tanagra, Écoutez-Moi, Les Sylvies and Pourpre d'Automne.

 Other perfumes were sold in Baccarat bottles: Fleurs de Lys, Lobelia, Pompadour, Cyclamen (model #1), Lilas, Royale Tubéreuse (model #43),  Vôtani, Eternelle Chanson, Chypre ( model #650), Lily (model #440) and Brise de Violettes.
