I remember when I was eight or nine getting my mother a relatively inexpensive perfume in a cobalt blue rounded, sort of flat bottle which, I want to say, from clouded memory, was Evening in Paris. That would put the date at about 1958 to 1959. I usually came in gift sets at Chistmas time. She wore this and Nuit de Noel in a quarter oz. size bottle. Does anyone remember this fragrance and do I have the name right? The so-called vintage bottles seem a little different than I remember. I don't see it anymore but, it used to be everywhere when I was a kid. What I do remember as a child was that I wore Canoe, and Enblish Leather which, I thought was too powerful. I guess it was quite a metamorphosis, Canoe to Mitsouko (LOL). I do remember being conscious of fragrance way back in the day.
