Lotion No. 5 Chanel

Lotion No. 5 Chanel, a perfumed body freshener meant to be splashed liberally on the body.  It was sort of like an eau de cologne or eau de toilette, but had some sort of glycerine component inside to help with a moisturizing effect for the skin. It was popular starting in the 1930s-1950s.

This is not equal to body lotion that we are familiar with today, it was not thick or greasy. It was thin in consistency like eau de cologne, lightly and lightly perfumed. It was meant to be splashed on after bathing or exercising.
