Exigez la Brillantine FORVIL Brillantine FORVIL FORVIL

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.

TRAITEMENT
FORVIL
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

FORVIL
LA PLUS BRILLANTE
BRILLANTINE

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.

FORVIL

A new feature of the product: Forvil is not only super shiny, it's also perfumed.

Again several layers: we recognize FORVIL, but also coiffant souple and forbril The background says coiffant souple and forbril. The toplayer features the words BRILL LAQUE, Diaphane and at the bottom FORVIL.
