Yardley Oh! De London was a popular female cosmetics product made in the 1960s and 1970s. Its name was a pun on the French manner of christening perfumes “eau de…”. Unused bottles are today highly collectible.

Background

The perfume was produced by British cosmetics firm Yardley. It was famed for its distinctive floral-like scent.

The range was discontinued in the early 1970s.

The formula has since been acquired by Tuvache although the reproductions are said to be sweeter than the originals.
