Shocking by Elsa Schiaparelli - First launching in 1937 by perfumer Jean Carles of Dragoco, Shocking was a fragrant accessory to her Shocking Pink clothing line, this floral woody amber (oriental) fragrance includes top notes of bergamot and estagon, heart notes of honeysuckle, rose and jasmine, and base notes of musk and civet. The Shocking flacon (perfume bottle) was inspired by Savador Dali's paintings of a female flower seller, and sculpted by Australian surrealist painter, Leonor Fini. The bottle, originally made in Czechoslovakia, is in the shape of a woman's torso, draped in Shocking Pink, said to be inspired by the curvaceous actress Mae West, based on her tailor's dummy. West was a client of Schiaparelli. Shocking was relaunched in 1998. Advertising illustration created by artist Marcel Vertes.
