License to Smell

December 16, 2010

I’d buy this. Who wouldn’t want to smell like Sean Connery?

Found in a Christmas sale flyer for Zeller’s department stores that was lining a drawer in my parent’s house. No date, but clearly from the 1960s. Not the groovy, happening 60s of popular imagination, but the drab, cost-conscious Zeller’s 60s of bargain priced men’s “suedene” coats (with acrylic pile lining), Teflon cookware sets and “leather-like” vinyl purses.
