I just received this mailing for Bergdorf Goodman’s latest beauty promotion, taking place from Friday, November 23 through Sunday, December 2, 2012.

Looking back, I still don’t completely understand my teenage obsession with The Official Preppy Handbook. I purchased a copy of this novelty bestseller (published in 1980) from a remainder bin in some bookstore, and I read and re-read sections of it until many bits were committed to memory.
I was (and am) not a “prep,” either in background or in personal style, but I was fascinated by this volume. And, looking back, I’m noticing a perfume reference that probably stayed lodged in my subconscious with all the other commentaries on colleges, clothing, and country clubs.
