    Cuts (out takes, rushes) for story in Colour Pictorial - CP 676. The original story is on Pathe Master tape *PM0431*.

    Cuts for story BIRTH OF A PERFUME in CP 676. Some similar footage to cut story about a new Lentheric perfume being made and launched in the Cote d'Azur. More footage of the launch party; women at tables sniff their perfume samples. In sequences not in the cut story we see the fashion and beauty journalists being shown around the Lentheric perfume factory; they sniff narcissi petals and throw them up in the air; they wander about the factory in suits, sniffing perfume ingredients and looking at machinery. Men and women sit around a boardroom table and sniff various perfumes and oils; the woman is exhilarated by the ones she tries - "That's fabulous!" she mouths.

    A girl sits at a dressing table and has her face powdered (rather roughly) by an elderly gentleman make-up artist. He also touches up some blue eye shadow on her eyelid. Great C/U of several fashion magazines spread on a table: Vogue, Marie Claire, Paris Match, Vanity Fair etc. Panning shot across the mags. A man is flicking through a magazine at his desk when another gentlemen comes over and shows him something on a map of the world.

    General shots of Grasse, perfume making, and scenery of the Cote d'Azur, as in cut story.
