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!

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.

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
