Fathers & Fasteners

Father's Day is this Sunday and I found the perfect gift for my dad!

Nuts & Bolts ~ The Cologne & Aftershave

Unfortunately I don't think it is made anymore but check it out; read about how cool of a gift it once was.

I found the following information from: Cleopatra's Boudoir

"From 1969 to about 1972, a man could get an unusual cologne called Nuts & Bolts, manufactured by the Colton Company who also made the Nine Flags and My Islands colognes.

The bottles for Nuts and Bolts were designed by Massimo Vignelli.

From a1969 newspaper ad : "Nuts and Bolts cologne and after shave lotion are two items in a new line from the Colton Company. The spicy fragrances come in orange glass and plastic nuts and bolts bottles".

Another 1969 ad reads "NUTS AND BOLTS What a nutty idea, it's about time someone came up with a line of grooming aids for the rugged individualist. Now there's NUTS AND BOLT. Five new super-virile products which come in man sized orange nuts and bolts containers. There's just about every grooming aid a man needs to make him feel like a man. A vigorous Cologne...a zesty After Shave...a biteless After Shave Conditioner...a strong-arm Deodorant Stick...and a couple of rousing Nut Shaped Soaps that help prevent bacteria odor..Available separately or any of three gift combinations. NUTS AND BOLTS from $2.50 to $9.50"
