Sweet Bird of Youth (1989)

In 1989 Elizabeth Taylor starred in the drama TV film Sweet Bird of Youth, directed by Nicolas Roeg, based on the 1959 play by Tennessee Williams.

The publicity shot above by Greg Gorman portrays Taylor sitting at a mirrored dressing table. Most of the bottles in front of her are decorative, but there’s one which is very distinctive.

It’s Caron Nuit de Noël, whose beautiful black bottle was modified with a golden pump atomiser. This woody floral fragrance, launched in 1922, is a creation by Ernest Daltroff.
