Perfumes PERFUMES

Hai Karate

This rather soapy smelling aftershave was very popular in the 80's. It either came in a clear or black bottle with a Japanese logo, which used to peel off easily.

The advert for this pre-cursor to Lynx, was a man chopping wood with his hands.

I was given a Hai Karate aftershave, soap on a rope and talc set for Christmas, at the age of ten!?

    Exactly the same as Sarahs response. Why did my mum insist on buying it for my dad then
