Niki de Saint Phalle

Niki de Saint Phalle (1930–2002) was a fashion model appearing in Vogue and Life. She studied acting, but soon found her passions were in the visual arts where she created paintings and sculpture. In 1982, she created a perfume bearing her name. The bottle was topped off by a sculpture of intertwined snakes. The fragrance had notes of fresh and green forest, combined with citrus.

Harzfeld's offered the fragrance and these buttons were worn to promote the scent.
