Bottle:



Drug and Cosmetic Industry, 1936:
"Novelty is cleverly secured in the Fumee perfume, a product of Lubin of Paris. An ordinary small bottle is used. On the surface is pasted a white label, the label being pressed down to conform with the contours on the surface of the bottle which is fluted. A metal cap, purple in color, indented to simulate the contours of the bottle, is slid over the top of the bottle and fits snugly in with the paper label on the surface. In this manner a cigarette pack is created. This metal closure also adds height to the package."

Discontinued, date unknown. Still being sold in 1958.
