    I think that Draper might also wear one of the many Russian Leather scents that were so popular at that time (Imperial del Oro, Elsha, etc.). Joan is a Shalimar girl, Roger is perfect for Habit Rouge, Moustache or Copper, by Countess Mara. Betty would have started out with a Mainline debutante-friendly scent like Miss Dior and then go all bitchy with Bal a Versailles. Henry Francis, who is a politician and comes from money, would wear Guerlain's Imperial (he later adopts Grey Flannel as his own). On another blog, someone thought that Peggy would wear Woodhue, and I can see it! She claims only to wear Chanel No 5 but really just keeps that for special "date nights." In a weird twist of fate, Megan, who is French Canadian and very chic, would also adopt Bal a Versailles as her own which would really mess with Don's mind. When she moves to Los Angeles, she buys it at I. Magnin instead of Bergdorf's. She moves on to Calandre in time.

    Pete, by the way, coming from the prep school circuit, would have worn something from Caswell Massey until Eau Sauvage came along and he claims it for his own, as the Preppy Handbook dictates. He will drift, over the years, between Preppy classics like Eau Sauvage and loud power scents like Givenchy Gentlemen. Polo will become his middle ground signature scent in the end. Sally Draper, by the way, will scorn the bottle of l'Air du Temps she is given as a birthday present and experiment with hip scents like Mary Quant, exotic scents like Taji, patchouli oil from the head shop and inappropriately mature scents like Youth Dew, finally settling on the newly launched Rive Gauche as her signature scent. She will never wear Bal a Versailles. Ever.

    If Joan didn't wear Shalimar, she would wear Possession.

    I think Don would wear a fragrance dominated with tobacco.
    Less fragrance is more.

    I see him wearing 4711 until Eau Sauvage was released in 1966, then I could imagine him always wearing that.

    Both had a jasmine note and were available then.
    I am not sure if you are still interested in an early 1960's jasmine scent, but take a look at the Don Miguel 1919 Aftershave by Myrsol -- it is a pure jasmine, masculine menthol aftershave originally formulated in the 1960's!!
