Les Heureux Cadeaux Caron

In this poster from 1953 Caron presents its Christmas fragrance Nuit de Noël. In the inventive ad, the candles on the tree are replaced with perfume bottles. This fragrance had an unlikely scent for the season, with Caron’s trademark dark undercurrent of geranium, liquorice, leather, iodine and vanillin placed at the base and the heart of the composition. Far from the homely intimacy of Christmas, the fragrance evoked something more melancholy- reflected in this illustration by the background’s deep blue.

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.
