Headed out of town this weekend?
On May 27, 1910, an ad for the Rosenbaum Company store in a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania newspaper made some suggestions for toiletries that its customers might want to pack for their Memorial Day outings. These items (on sale!) included facial cream, hydrogen peroxide, “Lusterite” emery boards, and tinted face powder (and “powder leaves,” which do sound useful for travel, if they’re similar to the “papier poudre” blotting papers still available today)…
Happy New Year! Are you greeting 2019 with a Champagne toast? I’ll be celebrating at a friend’s place and there’s a good chance we’ll be enacting this ritual.
I haven’t decided on my fragrance for the evening yet, but if I owned any Yves Saint Laurent Champagne, I’d dab on a few drops. This feminine fragrance was launched in 1993 and joined a line-up of several other remarkable YSL fragrances, including Opium (1977), Rive Gauche (1971), and Paris (1983).
