Additional Information:
This perfume was created for Isabey. The bottle and stopper are clear glass, and the bottle has a golden pearl finish. The paper label is a nice example of art nouveau. The Isabey perfumes are slowly being recreated and this one was re-released in 2011. The perfume was to evoke the scents of goods that were delivered to the ancient city of Carthage.
