Qui Sait? by Lancome: launched in 1937. Created by Armand Petitjean.
Peut-Être ("Perhaps" in French) became Qui Sait ("Who Knows" in French) in 1956, however I have found publications dating to as early as 1946 using the name Qui Sait (US Patent Office info). The reason for the name change is that it would be easier for Americans to pronounce.
The name Qui Sait was used previously by another French perfumer, Lournay in 1925.

Révolte by Lancome: launched in 1936. The name means "Uprising" in French, and was originally a perfume for men, but soon, women were taken to wearing it. Reportedly, the name was unpopular in South and Central America as it translated to "anarchy" and "revolution".
It's name was changed to Cuir in 1939 as the name Révolte was being used by another company in South America. The perfume was slightly improved, created by Armand Petitjean.
The fragrance was also rebottled into a new flacon.
