Lose Your Head to Scent

1970s, Erté, Illustrations, Vogue

We asked Erté to draw for us his notion of the essence of scent, its evocative powers, and its sensations. The picture arrived with a note ‘Enclosed my design ‘Un parfum à perdre la tête‘ “. Every bottle must lose its head, for you to lose yours.

Illustration by Erté.

Scanned from Vogue, June 1973.
