Magic Moment–#10 Parfum, Oui!

What happened to Faberge colognes?   The Woodhue fragrance was my perfume of choice during the dating years of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s.  I loved the musky cedar smell.  Like a walk in the woods.  Hated the flowery lavender scents—give me an earthy tone any day.  It became my signature scent and I would get lucky to receive as a gift from the family or a “friend”.

That scent can conjure up so many memories.  A whole lotta’ hormones, excitement and magic during those years. 

The cologne splash bottles had wooden tops which I thought were SO classy.  Did you know the men's Woodhue cologne was worn by Dean Martin and demanded a premium price?  I always liked Dean.  Good taste.


  1. Another fine memory. I still think of that wonderful fragrance after all these years. Thank you so much for your memories and your willingness and ability to write about it. Please keep going. I look forward to seeing what new posts you put up. Congratulations on 40 years, what an accomplishment.

    1. You reach a certain age or point in your life when the memories are so important. Thinking about experiences is one thing, but writing about it really brings it home. And so much fun to share. If someone can relate, it makes the writing more worthwhile.
