Le Golliwogg perfume

The Vigny perfume house launched Le Golliwogg perfume in France in 1919, and in the USA in 1925. Michel de Runoff and his brother in law Lucien Vogel – both editors of the French Vogue – designed its packaging. Jacques Vogel was the nose behind this fragrance. Vigny named the perfume after a character created by Florence Kate Upton that appears in children’s books in the late 19th century. Today, that inspiration and design would be considered to be very racist.
