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.

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!"
