Caron with Pleasure

The musty colours of this ad symbolise the scent With Pleasure which it advertised. The fragrance, composed by master perfumer Michel Morsetti, was issued in 1949 during a period of high productivity for Caron. The flacon is shaped like a honey jar, matching the warm colours which also refer to the fragrance’s earthy tonalities. The outlines of leaves point to its green-herbal facade. Despite being a French company, Caron opted for an English name for this fragrance, emphasising their cosmopolitanism.

At VAA we deploy modern technology to preserve these antique illustrations. The uniquely hard-wearing frames we use are designed in Switzerland; their durability results from the process of anodising. Anodising is a surface treatment which protects and decorates aluminium using an anodic oxidation process. As a result of this, these frames are especially resistant to corrosion and heat, protecting this vintage art from wear and tear.
We frame each illustration ourselves in our workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland. The float glass we use is crystal clear with a very flat surface and carefully polished edges. The frames are 32.7 × 42.7cm (12.87″ x 16.81″). The result? We present you with a period illustration- a genuine antique- enclosed by a frame of the highest quality. In this way, we like to think we’re bringing modern technology and antique artistry together.
