Rock n Roll by Marquay c1956

Rock n Roll by Marquay: launched in 1956. It was sold as Coup de Feu in the USA. The artwork for the packaging and advertising campaign was created by Salvador Dali.

So what does it smell like? It was described as an exotic oriental perfume for women.

Harper's Bazaar, 1960:
"Coup de Feu by Marquay is another new arrival from Paris. This one, however, is exotic, Oriental, fittingly packaged by Salvador Dali, who knows, if anyone does, about “the flame and explosions of the spirit of youth” typified by this perfumes. Two other perfumes from the same hose are newly available here: they are L’Elu and Prince Douka."
