Re: Chatting about Doris...

I recall Doris saying in her autobiography that her favourite fragrance was White Shoulders. She said she was asked about this by friends who started wearing it. She decided that in the future she would not tell people the names of her fragrances.

I believe White Shoulders is still on the market.
