This sprawling building across the tracks from Hove Station is the old Dubarry Perfume factory. It's currently home to residential flats, a gym, a yoga studio and a company which localises video games, but its walls are still ringed with green and white mosaics advertising Dubarry's 'perfume and toilet luxuries'.
They're not only beautiful to look at but always raise a smile, coming as they do from a less cynical era in beauty products. There is no 'science bit'':
'Shalimar Complexion Creams For Loveliness That Lasts'
'Creme Shalimar For Dainty Soft White Hands'
'Dubarry's Silkashave Soap For A Luxurious Shave'
I took my camera out to capture as many of them as I could, and I've gathered them together in a Dubarry building mosaics set on Flickr.
