Additional Information:
Shamrock shaped. Colleen Moore was a silent film star. She was the first film star with her signature perfume line under her own name for the Darnee line. Her fictional Irish background inspired the perfume line that featured shamrocks. A 1929 ad lists all the products under her name, including a perfume solid.
