Sinful Scented Sunday

With not a serpent in sight Parfums Weil for their Cobra fragrance are relying on subtle suggestion to get their message across.

Here we have an apple hanging from branches sprouting from the bottle of perfume imitating the Tree of Life. Cobra the said perfume takes the place of the serpent tempting Eve or in this case the modern woman of the 1940’s to take a few risks. The caption “Eve had been warned” is not necessarily a warning but a dare, in which if anything went wrong Eve could blame her perfume as she would not be responsible!

So will you be tempted and who are you going to blame?


  1. David, I am always tempted, alas only myself to blame!

  2. I blame Agnes Moorehead.
    I wish we lived in a world where illustrators were still gods, sigh.
    Alas, I find solace in your chic blog and a box of cabernet.

  3. David, I think that the art of illustration is coming back in a very strong way. Just take a look at the last issues of Vogue France and Vogue Italia. I can not be more happier since I am a great beliver that art in any form is more authentic and more valuable when done by human hands as if God hismpself gives our hands power to create beauty. Thank you for the wonderful article.
