Do you remember Aqua Manda??

When I was about 12 my older sisters all had Aqua Manda - I never did - how I longed for a bottle of perfume or talc.  I admired the bottles from afar and examined the adverts in Woman's Own.  I never did own any of these exotic potions...until day!!! At the car boot I bought an unopened bottle for 50p - so something that I had yearned for has been reduced to such a low value! How times have changed.  I might put this in Bronte's 70's bedroom and it will go a treat on the shelf

  2. I remember it well, and the orange scent. I bought my first bottle at Chelsea Girl in our local high street. (Those were the days!!!!)

  3. Good grief I had forgotten all about Chelsea Girl - that really does take me back. I thought that it was the most marvellous place - many thanks for the reminder!

  5. What a briliant find! I used Aqua Manda as a teenager in the 1970s and have been desperate to find some again. Unfortunately. it sells for a fortune on Ebay!

  7. Hi Jenny! Thank you for the comment over on my blog. Fancy the image belonging to your daughter!! I hadnt seen it on your blog. Tell her thank you very much for the loan of it! I thought it was very sophisticated back then and remember getting some. Maybe if enough people mention it they will start remaking it!
