Perfumes PERFUMES

Charles of the Ritz

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

As a gay boy in the 1970's I actually used to use my mums perfume which was Charles of the Ritz. I can still smell it now - she used to go bananas when I used to use it!

    Ive read via the web you can buy somthing very similar through the website ' Martecci' Sadly they do not ship outside USA or Canada, Im in Scotland, UK.The perfume reminds me so much of my mum who recently passed away. I wish I could get this in the UK.

    I adored charles of the Ritz, Ritz my sister got some for christmas when I was about 13 it camme gift wrappapped with tinsel and a silver bell on it, but I loved the smell so much I used to pinch a bit now and then and pretend I was grown up and sophisticated. I can still remember it, why wont somebody bring it out again?

      Ritz in the silver packaging was given to me In 74 and I love it even now. I still have some talcum powder- though I don't know if I should use it-47 years old

    I loved Enigma. You can still get a perfume called enigma but it's by Alexandra de Markoff and it's NOT THE SAME!

    I had 'Charivari' by Charles of the Ritz. It smelled gorgeous but took so long to use up that after a few years I threw it out because it smelled very weird. Do they still make it?

    Did anyone ever manage to get hold of it? I have tried the US and France. Ebay have been blocked by France from selling it because of it being an authentic original perfume.
