Past Traditions

The Selling of Scent

Since the beginning of advertising and pictures we've been given
"visual scents" in magazines, newspapers, television and now online.
The pictures rarely have anything to do with the actual scent but are made to
attract and make us "feel" a particular scent is for us.  It could be a sensuous or
exotic picture, a fresh country scene, pungent oriental blend or other image to evoke
a pleasant memory or experience  - all fed to our imagination to give us a visual
image of the advertised scent. Here are some of the images from the past used to help
us search for our "scents"......
