YOUR ASSISTANCE, PLEASE
Okay girls, those of you of a certain age will certainly remember Jean Nate and that crisp summery fragrance that we splashed on after a bath. You can smell it now, can't you? I am thinking 1967 give or take a year or two. About the same time there was another line of products ie: lotions, powders etc that was pink and I didn't like the smell at all. I thought it was called Desert Rose, but I can't find anything to verify that and it is making me crazy. Does this happen to any of you...your mind just becomes a giant sieve when you need to retrieve something oh so important, like the name of a lotion that you didn't even like forty plus years ago? If you think of the name of it please let me know. Barring that I am sure my mother still has some in the back of the bathroom closet and to answer your next question...no my MIL did not have any. Her ten tons of lotions, potions and powders were much newer, thank you very much.
PS. I did find some Tweed bath powder at the MIL's and that was another scent that never did much for me.
