San Remo, alternatively spelled Sanremo, is located just 30 miles from the French border. It is a historic resort town on the Italian Riviera that sports one of the most famous casinos in the world. This beach-studded strip of Italy´s coastline is called the Riviera dei Fiori, or Riviera of Flowers, because of the booming flower growing industry of which San Remo is the capital. In the 1800s San Remo became one of the most fashionable resort areas for the rich and famous; Tchaikovsky wrote "Eugene Onegin" there in the 1870s. The early-20th century saw San Remo peak in popularity, attracting tourists from all over Europe and opening a huge casino to rival Monte Carlo in 1905. The city is still a glitzy and fashionable destination on the Italian Riviera and caters to an upscale crowd.

This beautiful poster was printed circa 1890s / early 1900s advertising a Parfumerie specializing in perfumes of local flowers.  The Art Nouveau style, beautiful colours, and stunning calligraphy makes this a truly wonderful work of art. The poster was designed by Alormet of whom we know little about.
