Un Air Embaumé was Rigaud's great success and sold for many years. The fragrance was a flowery, amber, woody perfume.
Marcel Duchamp, in collaboration with photographer Man Ray, created their own "brand" of perfume from a classic Un Air Embaumé bottle (not the more modern one shown here.) The product was called Belle Haleine and included several insider ironies in the presentation.
