Monad Violet by Colgate

In 1901, Colgate introduced a new perfume which they called Monad Violet.

This intriguing scent was reminiscent of dewy, spring violets, crushed in all their fresh, woodsy fragrance.

The fragrance was available in parfum, toiet water, soap and talcum powder.

The Art Nouveau  labels for the products all featured beautiful chromolithographed violets inside a gold border with the name "Monad Violet" and "Colgate Perfumers New York USA" underneath.

By 1937, Monad Violet was discontinued. It is rare to find a bottle filled with the perfume, however, it is possible to find the empty bottles on ebay from time to time.
