Guerlain Ode

This fragrance was mentioned in Ian Fleming’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service as an archetypal seductive scent. In this 1955 poster the illustrator Palayer renders Ode in the form of a verdant plant emerging from an ornate vase. This fabulous picture is impressionistic with a light character redolent of spring, appropriate for a perfume which combines jasmine and rose in a tribute to that season. Perfect for any interior, this sunny artwork recalls a post-war period of optimism and affluence.

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.
