Re: scent/Evening in Paris

Well, my grandmother...being the frugal person that she was...only had the small, tiny bottles of it. She never owned the big bottle...is was just way too much money. When the bottle was empty she would give it to me and I'd carry it around in my little black shiny purse and act like I was putting some on. Sooooooo grown up like. *giggle* And no girl should EVER be caught without three things in her purse (according to my grandmother)...lipstick, a cotton hanky (lace preferred) and a dash of cologne or perfume. Powder for your nose was also a nice touch. Ya know..I just loved the way they dressed back then. I watch old "I love Lucy" shows and LOVE the dresses that Lucy wore. So glamorous and classy. I love the old black and white movies too.

I saw it in a specialty catalog that I have around here somewhere. Rather
expensive as I recall. I don't think it was expensive when it was popular.
