To everyone in the USA today and everyone from the USA eveywhere else:

Happy Independence Day!

To mark this 4th of July, some special picks over the next few days as The Dandy celebrates seven decades since ‘the first great American perfume’.

Can you guess which it will be?

We’ll be starting at the end of the story in the teens and working backwards to the fifties (my goodness if only life would work like that!).

So hold on to your hotdogs, hamburgers and California Rolls it’s going to be quite a ride.

Yours ever

The Perfumed Dandy.

    Thank you, dear Mr. Dandy. (Youth Dew?). ♥

  2. It was indeed Youth Dew by perfumer Josephine Catapano for Estee Lauder that made France sit up and take note! Oh and yes, Happy 4th of July! We couldn’t have done it without the help of England and King George III. I am having some tea right now to celebrate. Tea made with Boston Harbor water is the best you know.
