Favorite Things: Pretty Perfumes

These stylish vintage perfumes belonged to my great-aunt. She was a medical secretary in Montreal during the 1960s and would receive gifts such as silk scarves, gloves and perfume from patients.

Like many people of her generation that lived through the Second World War, she saved things for a special occasion which often never came. These perfume boxes are in perfect condition because they were never opened and enjoyed, something our generation would never understand.
