Centered around Grasse, the Riviera was the major flower-growing area for the perfume industry. Here, bathed in tones of Riviera-blue, a lovely Cherette is the charming allegory for flower-fresh scent. Flowers and petals from her bouquet fall all around her, leaving a beautiful, fragrant trail, much like the perfume she is promoting. Cheret 1225, Broido 940.
