Vintage Ad of the Day

Text reads:
Brace yourself! She's giving up!

Mennen Skin Bracer has the fragrance that can tame any dame -- even pretty Miss Mennen! It comes on manly... goes on cool, soothing, refreshing. Mennen Skin Bracer is more than just a good fragrance. It's a great feeling. If you want to be right on Target, try Mennen. Mennen's got what women want!
