After the success of Brut in 1964, Denim for men was released by Faberge in 1976 - remember it? It smelled of citrus yet with a woody muskiness to it - perfect for the 'real man'. It came in a square bottle and usually came in a gift set with talc. Why do we never see men's talc nowadays? After Denim, Faberge then released Denim Musk.



You can still get Denim, along with Old Spice and Brut, should you want too. 'Denim - for the Grampy who doesn't have to try too hard!'

It WAS rank, I agree! I remember being aware that the advert was implying 'naughty' things... I didn't quite know what at the time but it was that first realisation of sexual overtones...even though you can't quite work it out! There was something shocking about it, to a 8/9 year old! I knew it was up there with snogging I'd seen on TV! I doubt kids these days would be shocked by a woman running her hand up a mans demin shirt!
