Blondell Perfumes

In 1928, the uber exclusive Les Fourrures Blondell brought their perfume Le Sauvage (The Savage) onto the scene. The perfume was contained in an elegant Baccarat #655 crystal flacon with a unique design etched on the front, it depicted an Native American trapper with a recently killed fox slung over his shoulder, while behind them an elegant Parisienne is shown wearing a lavish fox stole. By today’s standards, this objectionable design would cause an outrage. This bottle was also used for the perfume La Faune des Bois.

Later, E. Blondell launched other perfumes without a fur theme, they were also located in the same building as the Myon Perfumery at 11 place de la Madeleine in Paris. They participated in the 1925 Paris Art Deco Expo.
