Sketch, 1939:
"Biename's Fleurs de Provence perfume. It seems to have imprisoned all the elusive scents of a summer garden, and it is an ideal perfume to wear with the sentimental clothes of the moment. Next comes Caravane, exhilarating and gay, creating a perfect aura for the true sophisticate."

Mademoiselle, 1940:
"Biename's Caravane, Vermeil, Dentelle, Chypre Imperial, Fleurs d'Ete from $4.35 to $32.25."
