Toujours Fidèle by D'Orsay

Appreciate the humor. Toujours Fidèle — "ever faithful" — a lover? The name suggests romance. But the "ever faithful" object of the title is man's best friend — a dog — a French bulldog or, perhaps, a pug.

The bottle is referred to as "pillow shaped " — but you might call it a pillow for a dog — or a doggie bed. Humor again.

The design of the bottle has been attributed to Baccarat (1912) and to Cristalleries de Nancy (1909 and 1912) by various sources. There appears to also have been a 1928 reissue by Baccarat with molded label, frosted stopper and gray patina.

Some examples exist signed by Baccarat, others signed by Nancy. Still others are unsigned.

The bottle appears to have been produced in more than one size as its common with successful fragrances.
