Rosiris c1899

Rosiris by LT Piver: launched in 1899. In USA by 1900.

Rosiris was a full line consisting of perfume (essence), toilet water, sachet powder, face powder and soap.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It was classified as a floral fragrance for women.

  • Top notes:
  • Middle notes: rose, iris
  • Base notes: orris


Rosiris was contained in a simple clear glass bottle with ground glass stopper. The real attraction was in it's polychromed paper label which featured stunning Alfonse Mucha style Art Nouveau graphics which recalled the images on its presentation box.

The face powder box repeated the same imagery as on the presentation box.

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown. The last newspaper advertisement I have found for it is 1926.
