Vent Vert Madame by Germaine Cellier for Pierre Balmain

Vent Vert

Bandit finds its roots in radical fragrances such as Tabac Blond by Caron (1919). In turn, it helped inspire Grès Cabochard (1958) and later, perhaps, Calvin Klein's Obsession (1985).

Jolie Madame was created by perfumer Germain Cellier of the fragrance house of Roure-Bertrand-Dupont for Pierre Balmain. Balmain, like Chanel, used simple, stock bottles with the plainest of labels. He was content so sell the contents of the bottle and concentrate the rest of his creative energies on his dresses.
