Coeur en Folie by Rosine c1922

Coeur en Folie by Rosine: launched in 1922. The name means "Heart Madness" also known as "Heart on Fire" in French. The perfume was named after the Folies Bergere performance "Coeur en Folie".

The Rosine perfume Coeur en Folie was introduced at the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris. The bottle was probably made by either Depinoix and Lefebure, as they made many of Rosine's perfume bottles.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? I have no published notes on this composition.

The absolutely charming perfume bottle was made up of ruby red crystal, in the stylized shape of a human heart, its stopper, molded as a set of little clear crystal wings meant to "fly to his beloved."

Honolulu Star Bulletin, 1925:
Coeur en Folie, folly of the heart, is the scent of fascinating mystery from Paul Poiret. This is put up in a whimsical heart-shaped flask."
