What a frag! Part 2/3

Here is a famous one.

Diorling with its leather chypré scent and crystal flacon. Launched in 1963 the nose of this fragrance is Paul Vacher. It is valued between €750 and €900.

I had the opportunity to smell it through my work and although it is not my type of fragrance, there is something magical about the scent.  The notes are in perfect harmony (too perfect for me?)  and the emulsion of emotions can really turn you on.

Elisabeth Arden created “It’s you” in 1939. The crystal bottle representing a hand holding a fragrance (not a big fan of the bottle)is worth between € 850 and € 1,200.

Despite the coldness (in my opinion) of the bottle’s appearance It’s You is a very romantic floral perfume. It’s light, delicate and definitely a summer frag.

Lucretia Vanderbilt ” blue opaque glass flacon was launched around 1928. A toiletry line had been launched with it. This is the kind of bottle you can see in boudoirs. I am a big fan of the luxury side of this bottle. It’s valued between €900 and €1,200.


« Près de vous » or in English « near you » is a fragrance from Rigaud. The flacon is a white crystal bottle with polychromatic decoration and translucent enamel.  We can see that the bottle has gothic inspiration and it is worth between €1,500 and €1,700.

About frenchychic

Born and raised in Paris, I am a Marketing and Sales professional. And now, I am a blogger! I used to be Australian, German and French (Parisian) and now a Londoner lady since February 2010. I love everything about France: the food, the wine, the fragrances, the designers, the music and our attitude, energy & character. My blog is not all about cosmetics nor fashion, is about what is happening in the world in a French perspective: how do we think? What do we think? Why do we thing like this? And what do we French think about YOU strangers from all over the world! It was my passion for arts, culture, international events & news, fashion that drove me into creating La French Attitude and I love every minute of it and I hope you too! Enjoy! Sté xxx
