    It used to be possible to find Todd Selby’s wonderful photos of Jeanne Lanvin’s private library on The Selby, but they don’t seem to be there any more.

    Some of the photos do still show up on some blogs that wrote about them, such as these two (no affiliation):

      Fun links, many thanks!

      Of course, they were commissioned by Lanvin – they might show up somewhere on the Lanvin website. I haven’t checked recently.

      Hmm, in fact, there seems to be a special website 125ans.lanvin regarding L’Histoire Lanvin, 125 Ans de Création. The main website promises new photos and information every Thursday there. May be worth looking at and keeping an eye on.

    I love these ads! I love Arpege.I read somewhere that back in the day, when women spoke of “french” perfume they were speaking of Arpege not No.5. Nobody in my family wore Arpege and smelling it as an adult was a joyous moment. I still like it better than No.5 and am happy it is still around.Thanks for the post.

      There was certainly a time when No. 5 was not selling like it is today…Chanel has really turned it around.

    Oh, this is delightful! Arpège is one of my favorite perfumes, and it’s a mainstay in my rotation.
