It seems like a gift of fragrance has always been a popular option. This charming ad from 1941 has the perfumes of Corday dominating a winter landscape.
Probably the best known of the Corday perfumes was Toujours Moi. It was the first fragrance released by Corday, in 1924. The scent remained popular into the 1940s. Today Dana Perfumes owns the rights to Toujours Moi, and they still produce a perfume by that name.
