RETRO - Mary Quant Honeysuckle Perfume
Year Introduced: 1972 - Feminine
Honeysuckle is a beautiful fresh honeysuckle fragrance.
An excerpt from Cleopatra's Boudoir:
In 1972 Mary Quant launched her Special Recipe line of perfume and cosmetics. Mary was trying to capture the dewy aura of fresh air, a healthy glow and the uncomplicated life of the country all for her city dweller customers who wanted the "milkmaid look". She stated that the range was conceived not for health objectives, but rather for an old fashioned look to complement the clothing she was designing at the time. "I wanted to create a romantic feeling, and not a fad for health cranks," she said. She added that "I have always wanted to live permanently in the country and I think Special Recipe cosmetics will give every girl the chance of looking like she just spent a week in the country." All of the Special Recipe cosmetics were scented with honeysuckle.
Honeysuckle was discontinued sometime in 1974 or 1975.
