A VIOLET SKY
Graham Robertson was also called in, and suggested a violet sky. ‘A violet sky,’ said Wilde. ‘Yes, I never thought of that. Certainly a violet sky and then, in place of an orchestra, braziers of perfume. Think – the scented clouds rising and partly veiling the stage from time to time – a new perfume for each emotion.’ Robertson pointed out that the theatre could not be aired between each emotion. Sarah Bernhardt, who was paying, decided to borrow a set from Irving.

AN ABSOLUTE DISASTER ON AN AESTHETIC LEVEL
Estée Lauder is the most buttoned-up company, and I think I have actually referred to them in writing as the new Kremlin… And yet they launched Tom Ford’s Black Orchid. A perfume that is insanely risky and innovative… Of course it was an absolute disaster on an aesthetic level in my opinion… I described it in V magazine as a combination of the smell of a slightly overripe, almost on the verge of rotting hot summer plum and the smell of the potted greasy 1930s red lipstick on the mouth of the woman who is biting into it, plus her breath.

THE FAT OF A YOUNG DOG
Elizabeth I, who had her own still-room for the making of perfumes, invented a fragrance of her own, the principle constituents of which were apple blossom and the fat of a young dog.

THE MAIN GOAL
The main goal is to try and bring together all the people that like big noses in a friendly environment of communication. So if you have the same appreciation for the nose that I do, please let me know.
Please see the sexy nose of the yesteryear actress Mumtaz. She became popular because of her very beautiful Nose. See the Nose of Sharmila Tagore and it is excellent. Come down to south. Observe the Noses of these cine actress Devayani, Aswini Nachappa, Priyamani, Gopika, Asin, Sameera Reddy, Shobhana, Bharathi, Sandhya, Namitha. Namitha’s Nose is one of the most beautiful one and even men of 70 years feel very sexy when they see Namitha with her big bouncing beautiful breasts with uppish Nose etc.

A PIZZA, A FART etc.
Polyester theatregoers were issued “Odorama” cards containing various fragrances and stenches, to be scratch-and-sniffed at appropriate Moments of the action (a pizza, a fart, etc.).
