    Colours which startle the eye burst from this 1951 ad for Robert Piguet’s Baghari scent. They channel the floral, almost tropical bouquet created by Francis Fabron and exotically named after a small North African village. This blossomy blend of yellow, red, blue and just a hint of orange pulls the customer towards a perfume known for its seductive, animalic quality. As women returned to more feminine roles after the experience of wartime employment, fragrances like this were all the rage.

    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.

A high-class lady examines a bottle of Roger & Gallet Eau de Cologne in the mirror.

    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.
