Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

Skinny Dip by Leeming c1970

"Be a Skinny Dip Girl! Skinny Dip Makes a Girl Feel Pretty"

Skinny Dip was released in 1970 by Leeming, a division of Pfizer.

Skinny Dip was released in 1970 by Leeming, a division of Pfizer. Skinny Dip was extremely popular amongst the younger set and Leeming introduced a new fragrance into the line called Wild Strawberry, this was followed by Skinny Dip Lemon, in 1972.

Lemon scented perfumes and body products were all the rage during the 1970s, the light, crisp, clean, refreshing citrus fragrance contrasted with the earthy, patchouli and animalic musk and ambergris fragrances favored by the hippies and counterculture. The tangy fragrance was said to be "all the freshness of the Skinny Dip fragrance with just a twist of lemon".

Three scents were available:
  • Regular which was brisk and breezy in a young beguiling scent with the dewy freshness of spring rain. This bottle had a lavender pink cap.
  • Wild strawberry that came in a bottle with a hot pink cap and the fragrance itself was pink tinted.
  • Lemon which came in a bottle with a yellow cap, out in 1972, the fragrance was pale yellow

The fragrances were available in spray mist cologne, splash cologne, after bath cologne, dusting powder, talc, bubble bath, soap cakes, bath oil, moisturizing hand and body lotion, and more. By 1975, you could get all four tangy solid colognes by Skinny Dip in a compact.

The Tingling Fluff Cologne was fragranced with the original Skinny Dip scent.
Actress Sandy Duncan appeared in a commercial for Skinny Dip cologne.

Skinny Dip had a really cool gift set for young girls. The set included a 2 oz bottle of Skinny Dip spray mist cologne, a 4 oz box of dusting powder, and a kit for making crewel patches came with colorfast thread, needle, two 3" x 3" denim patches (a strawberry and a flower), and instructions. The package stated "Stitch up a wild strawberry and a fun flower. Then sew them onto your favorite jeans, jacket, hat, anywhere you want a patch!"

In 1973, you could get the Skinny Dip Tote, it was filed with a 2 oz spray mist, 3 oz perfume talc,a and a 6 oz bubble bath, all contained in a floral patterned tote bag for $5.85.

In 1977, Skinny Dip's lemon cologne was still being sold.

By 1979, the Skinny Dip Colognes were finally discontinued all together.
