After the selection of clips presenting the american beauty industry in 1945 (the sound is now OK, I did the changes) I propose you a selection from the other side of the Cold War.
This clip is a selection from the movie "За витриной универмага" (1956 - from the windows of the universal store, a comedy). You can see here the consumer's life in the 50's in Moscow. At 2.00 you have the perfumes - en entire wall full with soviet fragrances in gift boxes (the expensive version, not the cheap eau de cologne). Very few items (gift boxes with soap, perfume and cologne) have survived from that era.
