            Was Estee Lauder Youth Dew earlier than the 1970s?

            In a duty free shop a few years ago my Mum got a sniff of it & thought it hadn't aged well.

              Youth Dew was from the 50's onwards

                No wonder my Mum thought it was dated!

                    Ahh, my first perfume was a Christmas present from my Mum's friend when I was really quite young I think...maybe 11 or 12...it was Charlie and I felt very grown up and sophisticated owning and wearing it! I remember adverts for Tramp and Tweed - how on earth would they market a perfume called 'Tramp' nowadays? I collect Jackie magazines from the 70s and love looking at the ads for perfumes, toiletries and cosmetics in them.

                      Is anyone else disappointed with the re-introduced AQUA MANDA bath oil? Lovely fragrance as before, but the original one was a Foaming Bath Oil, which means it dispersed in the water properly. The current one is just a bath oil. I've tried emulsifying it with a shampoo or foam bath, but it's still like sitting in an oil slick. They have not properly re-introduced this item and have taken short cuts.

                        Does anyone remember a perfume from the early 1960s called MANHATTAN? My friend's mother used it and, as far as I can remember, it was by Max Factor. To my young nose it smelt so sophisticated.
