Beauty contests ban seductive aromas"Aug 28,1922 Perfume, sweet-smelling face powder and flowers having a “burden of perfume” will be barred from Atlantic City’s fall pageant at the suggestion of Hudson Maxim, who will portray “Father Neptune” during the carnival. The 19 shore beauties who will form Neptune’s court consented at a “war council” today to form an anti-scent guard about Neptune. Miss America, Queen of Beauty, will have her looks accentuated solely by flowers which lack the olfactory powers of seducing the public and the judges."
Hum!!! I wonder if I added a rose scent to the rose painting it will seduce the public into buying it.
