Fine, so Coty didn't "invent" face powder -- but still, helluva company that I would bet has touched each of our lives in some way. Is it even possible to escape the tentacles of Coty as a female in the USA? You have at least smelled their products on other people.

surm changed his screenname to my irl name so maybe we're sharing one brain these days

btw, i still think sand and sable smells pretty good for drugstore perfume. it's like the poor girl's fracas.

Flipping through a Vermont Country Store catalog the other day - they sell 4 Coty scents, including Emeraude which I loved when I was in high school.

I'm reading Mandy Aftels' Essence and Alchemy and there is a part in the first chapter about how Coty revolutionized the modern fragrance industry by putting fragrances in distinctive vessels. Good book, recommended for anyone interested in scent!

Oops her name is Aftel, not Aftels. This is the book:

Do you have Walgreens in Chicago? The Walgreens here still sells the Coty Airspun powder. I saw it yesterday. I could always pick some up and send it to you if you really wanted it! :)

Yes, we do! I should go look for it. I wore Sand and Sable the other day and I STILL maintain that it smells really good for drugstore perfume. I like that smell a lot.

Walgreens was founded in Chicago! /misplaced civic pride

All of the Wal-Marts around here sell Airspun, too.

Look what I saw at a little (but free and quite interesting) perfume museum above the Fragonard store in Paris
