Closeup of an ad from 1955 for Cashmere Bouquet soap
(See the complete ad below)
The quote is from Louis Kronenberger, a writer, and editor of many books on the theater, in his 1955 book Company Manners: a Cultural Inquiry into American Life. He wrote his book around the same year as the beauty ad below appeared. Some advertising copy from the ad:
"It’s such wholesome beauty care for my dry skin! I never knew any soap could do so much so gently until Candy taught me to beauty-wash twice very day with mild Cashmere Bouquet, I just cream that fluffy, fragrant lather over my face with my fingertips. It leaves my skin looking wonderful – smoother, softer, with a lovely, fresh glow."
