Caron Fleurs de Rocaille (this is the older version, note the S in Fleurs. The more modern version is Fleur de Rocaille) was launched in 1933, right in the middle of The Depression. In "Scent of a Woman," Al Pacino's character recognizes the scent and, well, the movie gets its name. A delicate floral, feminine. This is the pure parfum Caron Fleurs de Rocaille
From Basenotes: "This Ernest Daltroff creation is a sumptuous affair receiving similar recognition & acclaim also afforded to many of his earlier works including 'Bellodgia, 'Narcisse Noir' & 'Tabac Blonde', a symphonic opus masterly constructed with high quality absolutes, essences & raw materials all cleverly fixed & bolstered by powerful synthetics considered novel and innovative even 10 years after the launch of Chanel's No.5 & Arpege by Lanvin. I appreciate the floralcy in Fleurs de Rocaille, violette, lilac, lily of the valley and a gorgeous spiced carnation/rose effect similar to the theme in 'Bellodgia', no animalic undertones detected apart from a slight hint of civet, drying down with a warm lactonic ambery base counter balanced by cool cedar & sandalwood."
