The crystal bottle takes the form of a decanter similar to a cuboid in shape, with a neck featuring a wide flange and a glass stopper. The crystal knob-shaped stopper is cut into in a bevelled pattern. Its rim, made from a gilded mass and featuring a carmine ribbon, is decorated with a gilded ornament. A gilded Roger&Gallet label with a figural representation pressed in the paper is set on one of the sides of the bottle’s body. The label features a decorative border with a carmine-coloured stripe and a strip of gilded astragal relief. On the label, a sitting figure of a half-naked woman is visible, the personification of Glory, raising the cup of a burning votive candle. Beside the woman, a putto raises its hands, reaching for the candle. Above the figures, there is a luminous inscription “GLOIRE DE PARIS,” and under them the inscription “ROGER&GALLET PARIS.” The texts are written in a font characteristic of Paris posters from around the year 1900.
On one side of the bottle, there is a small, round paper label with black letters on a gilded background, informing about the Paris Grand Prix prize.
The case is cuboid in shape, with a hinged lid, and is made of cardboard or paper pulp covered with carmine velvet. On the lid, there is a rectangular paper filigree, of gold and silver, imitating a metal plaque. The label has been encircled by a decorative border resembling a gilded belt with an embossed cabochon ornament. On the label, the slender, winged figure of a Cupid with an armful of flowers is depicted. The text “FLEURS D’AMOUR” is embossed at the top and “ROGER&GALLET PARIS” at the base. The typeface is characteristic of Parisian posters from around the year 1900. Inside the case, a notch was cut out so as to match the shape of the bottle. On the lid, a small filigree made of gilded mass, imitating a round seal, is set, framing an entwined monogram which reads “RG”, surrounded by the inscription “ROGER&GALLET PARIS.”
The set comes with a plaque with an embossed silver-plated representation of the slender winged figure of a Cupid, scattering flowers around in flight. The inscription “FLEURS D’AMOUR” is set at the top of the plaque and “ROGER&GALLET PARIS” at its base. Around the oval, gilded ornaments in the form of floral tendrils with the motif of a lily, are visible.
