Un tranquillo posto di campagna (1968)

There are many bottles on Flavia’s dressing table: among them, the unmistakable green bottle of Victor Acqua di Selva, a classic fougère fragrance first launched in 1949.

The tall bottle with gold stopper on the right is Rochas Madame Rochas, a woody/floral creation by Guy Robert launched in 1960.

Moving to the far right side of the table, there’s a fluted bottle with silver stopper: it’s another Rochas perfume, Moustache. It’s unclear whether this bottle contained the eau de toilette concentrée (launched in 1948) or the eau de cologne (launched one year later, in 1949): in any case, the fougère fragrance was a successful creation by Edmond Roudnitska and Thérèse Roudnitska.
