Glass bottle for eau de cologne, Paris, France, 1780-1850

From the 1700s onwards Paris was at the centre of the perfume and cologne business. At a time when most people did little to hide their ‘natural odours’, some who could afford it used eau de cologne as part of their personal hygiene routines. The cologne was prepared by Langier Père et Fils at 14 Rue Bourg-l’abbé, Paris, France.
