It adheres for hours, thanks to the 'Cream Mousse' is contains. It puts a stop to all fears of a shiny nose.
I find it has a choice perfume of real flowers, so fresh and so soft.
Its fascinating hues are the latest Paris creations. I think the new 'Pêche' tone is extremely flattering.
On sale in every perfumery and good houses. If you can't find it write to Depósito Tokalon, 88, Assunção Street - Lisbon, and you'll get it in the mail."

Only thus could one hope to achieve a car that is the symbol of wealth, taste and cosmopolitanism."
