    I understand that my mother used to wear Charlie and Diorella (thepermfumesdiary) in the 70s and so did some of her friends; I'm now not positive in the event that they have been any popular although.

      Tweed and Panache were advertised on TV well into the 1980s, and of course, Valerie Leon did Hai Karate aftershave in the 1970s which I saw on one of those I Love programmes.

        My mother used Chanel No. 5 most of the time but her favorite was something called 'Joy'. It was expensive and sold in very tiny bottles so deployed sparingly. There was something else i can only vaguely recall in large bottles with a number like '1689' or '1568' or something like that on the label. It was not '1888' nor '1868' though, which is what comes up when i try to find it.

        For awhile I had some fressia scented stuff a woman I worked for in the late '90s sold. I liked that a lot but after I left her I haven't been able to find it.

          Do you mean 4711??

          Joy was made by Jean Patou and was hideously expensive

            Yes, that's the stuff! My Grandmother (the one from Holland) wore it all the time and my Mother took it up sometimes too. My other Grandmother always smelled of a soap named Cashmere Bouquet (and our mouths would sometimes if we said a bad word around her). I know she had some Yardley soap too but we were told that was only for 'fine company'. Yes, a lot of fussy and smelly ladies in my family!
