Mam'zelle Victoire by Rosine c1915

Mam'zelle Victoire by Rosine: launched in 1915. Created by Henri Almeras.

It is said that Georges Lepape collaborated with Poiret on the perfume bottle and packaging design and, of course, completed all the artwork for the labelling and advertising. This advertisement appeared in 1916.

"Mam'zelle Victoire" by Rosine was trademarked May 25th 1915 as both a commercial product and a way of supporting patriotism and Victory for France, displaying all the codes of the French Republic, tricolor flags, rooster, revolutionary clothing. The central image portrays "Marianne", a long standing symbol of France.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? Unfortunately I do not have the notes on the composition of this perfume.

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown. Still being sold in 1917.
