I came across the phrase "ravie de vous rencontrer" on Lingq today and it made me wonder why not just say "Enchanté" when you want to say "pleased to meet you"? Under what circumstances would you use the phrase "ravie de vous rencontrer"?
"Ravi de vous rencontrer" and "Enchanté" are very similar but "Enchanté" is a bit stronger, older and less formal.
"Enchanté" is more for someone you met in a casual way (friends of someone, parents of someone etc.)
As for "Ravi de vous rencontrer", it's a very formal way of saying hello. It's often use in work when you met a superior for the first time or in a job interview. And still, it depends of your work environment.
But in general, people just say "Salut" or "Bonjour", even if they met for the 1st time.
