Intriguing Old Ad

I count on my husband for some of my photos of Aveyron, because his job as a financial consultant for farmers gets him out in the country a few days a week. He just sent me this intriguing trace of an advertisement from the past -- but does anyone know what this bottle represents?

This isn't a guessing game! I don't know the answer myself -- but maybe you do.

Update: Okay, now I do know the answer because my hubby- photographer told me! But I still would like to make you guess...

I shall make an attempt, though I really have no idea. Is it olive oil?

when do you give your answer?
Love your blog, by the way....I am from the Cevennes

No, it's not olive oil.

Suze is closer, but it's not that -- although I do have a neat ad for Suze on an old cafe in my June 28th post.

I would like to get a few more guesses before revealing the answer...
