French Almond Perfume

French Almond was a perfume of the 70's which seems to have disapeared without trace. It was a lovely fresh smell and came in a funky clear, thin glass bottle with black almond blossom flowers on the bottle. I can't for the life of me remember who produced it. All my friends and I used to wear it and I wish it was still around!

I too loved this perfume, and it was not expensive. Cant imagine an old bottle of it being worth buying as perfume can go "off" and it would probably not be a good smell!!

Loved French Almond, wore it all the time in the late 60's & early 70's. Would love to be able to still buy it. Does anyone know of anything remotely similar?

I used to like Stowaway body sprays, especially one called 'sunrise' or something like that. Also, US deodorant - reminds me of getting ready to go to the disco!

My mother died in 1975 and she always wore French Almond Perfume. I still have the bottle (no perfume left) and I can still get the smell. I would love to get another bottle for the memories of my mother

I have been shearching for a perfume named 'Just Almond' but can't remember who made it. Might've been Yardley. We sold it in a shop I used to work in, in the 70's.

Does anyone remember an ice cream that used to come in a box just like a normal box of chocs but was actually choc covered ice cream with vanilla and orange ice cream inside. I think they were called Dark Secrets or something like that. They cost about 20p back in the late seventies and they were lovely!

Does anyone remember Havoc by Mary Quant. I used to wear it when I was about 17. I loved the silver spray it came in. I was told Mary Quant dosn't make it anymore

French Almond perfume was made by Roberts of Windsor and was available in Woolworths, as was Evening in Paris by Bourjois - two wonderful perfumes. Evening in Paris has since been revived - I wish someone would do the same with French Almond as I've been looking for something like it ever since!

this perfume was made by ann french. i remember wearing it going to secondary school as it was affordable. the smell was beautifull and sweet. what made me think of it again was that i tried gucci rush and i think it is a great copy. it brought back old memories.
