an article about perfumes (1911)

“Le parfum complète la toilette d’une femme avec la même subtile necessité que l’atmosphère entoure le relief d’un paysage…”

An article about perfumes; in the last lines the author insists that only natural perfumes can be called perfumes, and the synthetic ones are very poor and don’t deserve this name. Looks like such a point of view was typical for la Belle Epoque.
