Art Deco Advertising ~ Guerlain Perfume Ads

▫ 1938 ▫

Lady Liberty or evil enchantress? This stunning 1938 advertisement for Guerlain's Vega perfume may leave you wondering.

This captivating art deco image by Darcy has been featured in art history books such as Taschen's All-American Ads Series. Guerlain Fragrances, one of the oldest perfume houses in the world, was founded by designer Pierre-François Pascal Guerlain in Paris in 1828.

▫ 1949▫

Through the years Guerlain has employed some of the world's top artists to design their bottles, as well as their advertising art. Darcy continued to create Guerlain ads... as seen in this brilliant blue and lavender ad from 1949 with the caption... Fleur de Feu. The literal translation is "Flower of Fire."
