|The first series of pictures
shows the primitive Forvil: use of uppercase characters, stating
the brand's name, short description or suggestion.
The characters only have a borderline. Unlike many other brands Forvil didn't fancy shadows.
|The Abbeville mural shows a new
colour-scheme. Yellow becomes the main colour.
The type face stays the same. The message also brings more information.
Forvil states its strong point: the excellent ingredients.
The St-Maure wall goes further and stresses the good results. The mural from La Mure finally stresses the superior shine.

á base d'extrapones
Extrapones are extracts of plants treated to be used in cosmetics.
|At some point the brand started to play with the colours. They stay the same — blue, white, red —
but they are swapped and a new colour (yellow) is introduced.
The borderline is gone and the St-Maure wall features for... in a round, lowercase type face with a special 'f'.
|I guessed the usual ...vil
hidden by the Touraine.
The Port Rémy wall though proves this supposition wrong. It was quite a squeeze but eventually the wall gave up. The product coiffant souple is forBRIL where the bril is written in italics. Doesn't sound nor looks brilliant: forbril

LA PLUS BRILLANTE
This is one of those rare occasions where Forvil stresses why it is outstanding. It keeps your hair from splitting. It's made with extrapones and it shines more than any other brillantine. Truely a superior product.
|Super Brillant(ine) Parfumé(e)
A new feature of the product: Forvil is not only super shiny, it's also perfumed.
