I have a vintage perfume advertisement to share from 1953 that was made especially to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
The vintage perfume advertisement is by Lenthéric and the fragrance is called Royal Rose, part of a line of perfumes called Bouquet Lenthéric. The advert shows an illustration of a red rose and lists the other fragrances in the set which were: Tweed, Miracle, Shanghai, Lotus D’Or and Red Lilac.
This is the original scan:
This is my re-touched version:
This is the illustration of the red rose:
- The Lenthéric company was named after Guillaume Lenthéric, a French distiller and dispenser of perfumes.
- Lenthéric operated a small salon in Paris, France, beginning in 1875.
- Lenthéric exclusively distilled and dispensed the rarest perfumes in France for ladies of the courts and aristocracy in Europe.
- Guillaume Lentheric died in 1912.
This is a very short video that I found on YouTube of an 80’s Tweed advert by Lenthéric; I remember this just like it was yesterday!
