    This vintage perfume ad from 1955 is an optical illusion of sorts. Against a warm, deep-orange background, a dove flies through a fearsome storm. The wing forms the shape of an elegant woman in profile, complete with pearls, earrings and long, graceful eyelashes. The dove symbolises both femininity and hope- perhaps the optimism of a France in bloom a decade after the close of war. This illustration by Claude Maurel portrays a woman and a dove flying against a storm.

    This piece of commercial art from 1956 was created by Jean-Claude Maurel for Le Galion. Perfume house Le Galion named their fragrance ‘Snob’ to appeal to the high-society women emboldened by the ‘New Look’ revolution in fashion and France’s post-war economic boom. With downcast eyes and her face turned away from the viewer, she expresses an aloofness in tune with the new style, one memorably depicted in films such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s and High Society . That attitude was much in evidence in the luxury advertising of the time.
