Here is a lovely and sweet-smelling trilogy of beauty products from the mid 20th century.
The cologne in the glass bottle with stopper (which is just a little under half full) has absolutely no identifying marks or labels. Neither does the white and gilt trim box the cologne comes in. The fragrance (to my nose) is floral and has a hint of musk. The box is in very good condition; no rips or tears. Dimensions of the box are 3" tall by 2" wide. The glass bottle itself is 1.5" tall by a little over 1" wide.
The glass bottle of fragrance powder has a fresh scent, still, and is almost full. It's 3.5" tall by a little over an inch wide. The name and store is clearly on the label.
Last, the goldtone parfume dispenser is Lanvin's 'My Sin' and it still smells very nice. I don't know how much is in there, but it isn't much. The Lanvin trademark is on one end, the 'My Sin' name on the other. The little dispenser is 2.5" tall and without damage.
I picked up this bit if info on the Lanvin website: "In 1907, Jeanne and her 10 year old daughter, Marguerite Marie Blanche, attended a costume ball, donning matching outfits. The moment was immortalised in a photograph of Jeanne and Marguerite holding hands together. When it came to finding a logo to represent Jeanne Lanvin's couture house, they choose the photograph of the designer and her daughter in their costumes. The logo has remained at the heart of the Lanvin house ever since." A poignant image, when you get a good look at it. Lanvin did design children's clothing in her early days so the logo fit.
I still smell nice after handling the Lanvin dispenser. All three items come together and make a great display. Thank you for shopping with me.
