An apothecary dressed in a seventeenth-century theatrical costume, similar to one worn by the physicians in Molière's last comedy--Le Malade imaginaire (The imaginary invalid) of 1673--peers over his glasses while holding two products in the Botot line, a toothpaste and a liquid dentifrice. Although the figure is bold and stylized, the depiction of the products is more detailed and realistic to ensure brand recognition.
