Le Balcon by Rosine c1914

Le Balcon by Rosine:  launched in 1914.  Created by Henri Alméras.

This fragrance evokes the romance with Martha, her neighbor to the rue Auber, who often stood on his balcony. To this flask, Mario Simon takes up the idea of the grid surrounding a female bust with rounded shoulders.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a floral bouquet fragrance for women. Unfortunately I have no published notes on this perfume. I would need a sample to tell you what it smells like.
