The /Justine /perfume was a tie-in product for the 1969 Cukor film.  The 
perfume is no longer in production, but you can still obtain bottles at 
auction.  Asking who would aspire to wear it would be revealing.

The information below  is scanned from the pressbook for the film.  Note 
the clothing line to be carried by Saks.  All of this is an important 
record of that decade in which LD's readership was still growing 
abundantly and the /Quartet /still enjoyed a singular reputation as both 
an important work of fiction and, in Richard's phrase, an 
"unputdownable" read.   Like the fashions below, that seems like an 
epoch slipped off into the sea.

Enough of the archeology.  Here's to the good work of encouraging more 
readers to pick up the books once more.
