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."
