  1. In the late 1970′s while I was showing my younger visiting cousin Manhattan we stopped in at Berdorf-Goodman’s on Fifth Avenue. Being from a small new england town she was very impressed. We notice a crowd by one beauty products counter. It was Princess Luciana who I only knew from seeing her on tv commericals for Camay. At one point we got to chat with her for a minute and she was very kind. She gave us a sample strip of a tea rose perfume she was promoting. Well,one of them must have got stuck under the back seat of our car. A few days later during an august heat wave when my brother opened the car door he said:”I think there is a dead animal here. So much for tea rose.
