Perfumes PERFUMES

Tweed

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

Tweed came in a small square bottle with a wooden type top. It had quite a heady wood smell I thought. They still make it today but it doesn't smell the same as it used to. My mum practically bathed in Tweed in the mid 70's!

    My mother has Tweed - it is such a distinctive smell. You only need one spray and you can smell it 50ft away,

    I have to give my Mum this....she never liked these perfumes such as: Tweed, Tramp and Charlie. We didn't have much money so she couldn't spend it on expensive perfumes. Although I do remember my Dad going on the ferry (he was a long distance lorry driver), and bringing her back a really small bottle of Chanel No9 which she treasured and only wore and really special nights out. I have inherited me Mum's taste in more expensive perfumes, but am currently poor....so I'd rather go without and wait to buy a posh one! I'm only a snob when it comes to perfume or ice cream!(Yes, you read that correctly)! I'll happily buy me clothes from less expensive chains!

    I remember Tweed by Lenthric.It was a lovely chic and refined fragrance. I recently got a bottle of it in the chemist and I was thrilled. I remember my aunt gave me a tiny bottle of it when I was thirteen and I really thought I was all grown up..It had a little wooden top on the bottle. The packaging has changed a bit nowadays but it still smells the same and will always be a timless favourite with me.

    Just one whiff of Tweed was enough to give me a major headache, my mam used to wear it all the time. Oh, I hated it.
