Scents of Smell

Immersed in a bottle of Nina Ricci’s L’Air Du Temps toilet water, £2.15, and surrounded by a mass of colourful blooms – rose, geranium, lily of the valley and chrysanthemums – we show a pure silk kimono by Mitsukiku, £21, and make-up from the Boots No. 7 range.

This illustrative image for an article about scents and smell also perfectly showcases James Wedge’s genius for hand-tinting and photomontage.

Modelled by Marie Helvin.

Photographed by James Wedge.

Scanned from 19 Magazine, November 1971.
