Additional Information: 
The scent was first introduced in 1920 but in 1923 Lalique was commissioned to produce a flacon and an atomizer (also in this collection). This new model featured a rectangular body that was wider than tall with four rounded edges, each being outlined by the leaf of a young fern. The unusual stopper is adorned on both sides with two opposing doves with a flat and polished surface against a background of vegetation, molded in low relief. This stopper has a top on which the name of the perfume and the company is also molded, an original design unlike any other. Ref: The Art of Rene Lalique, Christie Mayer Lefkowith, 2010.
