Still a bit sad about that one.
I had that back in the 70s. It was a great fragrance. I'd wondered why it suddenly disappeared.

Didn't Exclamation by Coty used to come in a pink bottle? It smells kind of peppery.



I just realized I answered a question from 2010....oh well.

No. Exclamation! came in a white bottle with a black top. I used to wear it in the late 80s. My friend used to say I smelled like a Flight Attendant (we worked at a place where we dealt with PanAm flight attendants all day and they all smelled like that)

I remember the smell reminded me of pepper, as weird as that sounds for a perfume. It is similar to Avon's new 50s Glam, which is described as a combination of apple, persimmon, gardenia, rose, musk, moss, and vetiver. I would love to find out what this is. Thanks again.
"Shalimar" or possibly "Romance"?
