Derived from the aristocracy, D’Orsay was a friend to some memorable figures in art and politics including Lord Byron, Berlioz and Disraeli. This masculine fragrance was created in 1911 and embodied the luxurious and opulent character of that man, with its spicy-citrusy scent. As an advertisement which harks back to this great history, this poster will add a distinguished dash of heritage to its surroundings.

    This ad from 1937 was created for Coty. The house is known for originating the Chypre family of perfumes, created by founder François Coty in 1917. Chypre, named after the French word for Cyprus, is composed of materials coming primarily from Mediterranean countries. The fragrance is characterised by bergamot top notes followed by prominent moss and a labdanum-rich amber base. This influential accord was a landmark in the development of the art of perfume. This advertisement is, therefore, not only an attractive piece of artwork but a document of history.

    This vintage ad from 1945 was illustrated by Jean Facon-Marrec, an illustrator who created work for Dana as well as other perfume houses and lingerie companies. The woman’s dress, with its full skirt employing an extravagant amount of fabric, speaks to the ‘New Look’ fashion style that took French haute couture by storm in the years after the war. The bold red stands out against the white background, where the names of Dana’s illustrious fragrances are announced in clean, simple typeface.

    This ad from 1948 was created by prodigious illustrator Jean Facon-Marrec for the notorious ‘Tabu’ perfume by Dana. Appropriate to its name—which implies an illicit seduction—Tabu is referred to here as ‘Le parfum “défendu”‘: the ‘forbidden’ fragrance. Tabu was in fact the first fragrance by Dana, created by Jean Carles in 1932 after he was asked to make a fragrance that would suit a prostitute. The bold, black outlines used in this monochromatic artwork emphasise the lascivious character that the fragrance held in the eyes of its users.

    This stunning work advertises Dana’s first ever perfume, Tabu, released in 1932. It was created by Jean Carles, known for his novel and unusual creations. The noir lighting suggests Tabu’s sensuous and illicit sensibility. The (perhaps apocryphal) myth surrounding the fragrance is that Carles was asked to create the kind of perfume a prostitute would wear. This ad was printed in 1952, when the French were more open about sexuality. But its overt eroticism was subversive on its 1932 release.

    Often misnamed ‘cherubs’ the winged babies in this work are in fact putti, celestial figures with both religious and secular associations. As the helix-shaped bottle glides through the sky the two putti attend on it with pink loincloths streaming behind them. Often linked to Aphrodite, putti symbolise romantic love as well as peace and prosperity. In tune with the fragrance’s name, a renaissance flair shines through this artwork which links earthly passions of love to the sublimity of the divine.

    The use of white space in this ad creates a calming ambience which surrounds the scene of feminine opulence. It was illustrated by Pierre Pagès, known for his depictions of sophisticated women. A high-class lady examines a bottle of Roger & Gallet Eau de Cologne in the mirror. Such a scene, from 1953, is emblematic of the turn towards extravagant femininity after the war exemplified by Christian Dior’s ‘New Look’ fashion range which exhibited large, flowing skirts and slim waists.

Like Gruau, Crosthwait painted for many illustrious designers including Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Hubert de Givenchy. His work was featured most prominently in the famous New York-based fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar.

    This charming ad with a musical theme was published in 1941. The illustrator Félix Agostini depicts a perfume bottle in spotlight above musical staves which notate a tune before spiralling off into the vastness of space. Originally an illustrator, Agostini was best known for the surrealist-inspired sconces, lamps and furniture he handcrafted in bronze. A glimpse of that style is on show here in this piece from an earlier episode in his career. As buoyant as it is opulent, this ad will brighten up the wall of any interior.
