Value from Alternate Classic Brands

Just picked up some little spray bottles of the classic French scent Intimate - from the 99 Cent Store! I looked it up, and it is a brand from a 50's French designer. the price at which I got it was 1/2 off even the net's discount price (so I bought a couple).


This isn't the first time I have made good deals on quality merchandise from a little-known maker. When I was shopping for wooden recorders, on the internet I discovered brands of quality other than the main ones available (such as Yamaha or Moek) and was able to make budget buys.

I recently read a book about pianos which talks about the same sort of route (good deals on old pianos other than Steinways) and get a classic brand not well known to the current public for an extremely good price. So do your homework - get to know quality. It can help you make your money stretch.

What a trip down memory lane. I remember intimate cologne from the 60s, when it was very popular. I especially liked the bath powder. Not to nitpick, but my memory is that it was made by Revlon, an American company.

Thanks for the nostalgic moment.
