Votre Main by Jean Desprez: launched in 1939. The name means "your hand" in French.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It was described as "subtle, fruity". Unfortunately I do not have any published notes on this composition, but if you have a sample to donate I would love to review it to complete this article.
