Spring of 1951 finds Ann Arbor
stores featuring new cosmetic
shades and perfume scents which
are as light and airy as spring
April marks the time-to change
from heavy, clinging perfumes us-
ually associated with winter and
winter clothes to light, cool scents.
Later on when summer is here
in full force, very light flower
fragrances will be more suitable.
In keeping with the trends
started last summer, solid per-
fumes are becoming more and
more popular. Local stores fea-
ture many of last year's familiar
liquid fragrances in stick form.
1951 spring lipsticks are de-
signed to accent the blues that
are so popular in this year's fash-
ions. New blue and violet tones
are rivaling last year's pinker
Women with distinct hair and
complexion colors will choose lip-
stocks with either very light or
very dark shades to accent their
features as well as the blues in
Redheads and platinum blondes
prefer orange or red'tones in lip-
stick while brunettes favor deep
reds. The medium blond or brown-
ette will find the new blue shades
to be in perfect harmony with her
hair and complexion.
bright daisies, bluebells and
other small buds served to com-
plement new outfits.
With this taste of spring, col-
lege women found that their
rooms looked too cold and "win-
terish." Potted hyacinths and tu-
lips were purchased to add cheer
to the drab atmosphere.
CUT FLOWERS, too, add frag-
rance and color. Roses, carna-
tions or any seasonal blooms may
be purchased and placed in a small
flower-bowl. These floating blos-
soms help to add "that feminine
touch" to the bare college room.
Cotton and rayon blouses are
enhanced by pinning a small
bouquet at the neckline. Suits
and after five dresses are given
"that special look" by using
The coed who wishes to draw
attention to her hair or eyes may
do so by wearing floral accessories
in the tresses. Slim waistlines
may be accented by attaching a
bunch of flowers to the beltline
of one's dress.
FOR THE WOMAN whose lip-
line is her outstanding feature,
flowers prove to be a great asset.
Blossoms worn at the neck im-
mediately attract attention to and
accentuate the lips.
Lipstick manufacturers rea-
lize the importance of flowers in
the field of cosmetics. New lip-
stick shades include many rose
and lilac hues this spring.
Perfume makers, too, turn their
attentions to summer blossoms.
Most popular perfumes have flow-
er bases. By extracting the essen-
tial oils, the perfumer can cap-
ture thefragrance of the flower.

JASMINE AND ROSE are found
in almost every good perfume be-
cause they add "softness" and
"cushion" to a fragrance.
The rose was the first of all
blooms to be used as perfume,
and is still a great favorite to-
day. Lily and lilac scents are
Even the new fabrics follow the
flower motif. Floral designs are

modes of dress from bathing
suits and daytime fashions to for-
mal evening wear.
