Fleur de Feu
Fleur de Feu (Flower of Fire) was created by Jacques Guerlain in 1948. This was Guerlain’s first perfume after the World War II hence the name Fleur de Feu coming from the idea of flowers rising from the flames – like a phoenix. It was also created to celebrate Guerlain's 120th anniversary.
It is now discontinued but appears that it was still being sold in 1959.
