Ritz by Charles of the Ritz c1972

Ritz by Charles of the Ritz: launched in 1972. Not to be confused with the 1977 perfume Charles of the Ritz by Charles of the Ritz.

The Ritz line was housed in shiny aluminum canisters with a silver checkerboard pattern and a burgundy band. Small bottles were clear glass. The Ritz Light Perfume was housed in the same containers.

 The Charles of the Ritz by Charles of the Ritz perfume was housed in burgundy canisters.

  • 2 oz Double Perfume
  • 1/4 oz Triple Perfume Pencelle
  • 4 oz Perfume Powder Spray

The Perfume Pencelle worked much like a magic marker, a little sponge tip applicator inside of an aluminum tube to leave a trace of Ritz perfume on the skin.
