Vintage French poster for Grasse, a charming village nestled in the hills of the French Riviera. Grasse has a long history as the capital of the perfume industry, and this poster emphasizes that, both with words and with its portrayal of feminine beauty: a dazzling redhead is illustrated at the forefront of the poster, her luscious hair interwoven with flowers and a view of the village itself.
