when product goes off shore the talc seems to be more note-worthy than the parfum. i found the parfum to be a little more sweet in the notes presented. however, i would recommend this to all who likes to live in the past perfect world of ones youth. NOTE: 10-12 years ago i purchased a wooden clothes hanger for bathtub---it said "made in USA"- i still have it and cannot do without it. ALL PRODUCTS FROM THE VERMONT COUNTRY STORE ARE AWESOME. Thanks to the "O" family; many thanks:) February 25, 2014
This was Christmas gift Tweed is one of my mother's favorite colognes. Thanks to Vermont Country store for putting it back in your catalog. My Christmas shopping was so much easier this year. January 4, 2014
A clean, fresh smell The smell is clean and fresh, but with more complexity than a simple scent. I am a perfume junkie who enjoys scent, but need something for the office when my perfume cannot be overpowering. It's coming to my office drawer for a mid-afternoon refresher. My only criticisms can be addressed with a little more attention to production detail: the box was not well constructed and glued seam started to come apart, which may make it embarrassing for gift-giving. Also: while made by Taylor of London, a well-regarded brand, the perfume itself is made in China. I'd rather see it produced in Britain or the U.S. December 27, 2013
The best scent for the women you love Thank you so much for having the hard to get in the U.S (Tweed). Used to get this product from my in-laws from across the ocean. Found it in the local drug store in London on a trip I had made 15yrs ago.Now I know where to get this. Thank you for the prompt delivery. March 7, 2013
Lovely smell I have been wearing Tweed since I was 12 years old. A neighbor wore it and I fell in love with it. I used to order it from overseas but haven't been able to find it. I am so glad I found Vermont Country Store. You made me feel so much better and the compliments I get on my scent is amazing!!!!! January 10, 2013
My Wife Cried Sometime before Christmas, my wife mentioned that her mother used to wear Tweed and that anytime she smelled anything like it that it brought back fond memories. She also said that they did not make it anymore but that she would love to find some. A little research told me that they did in fact still make it and that I could find it at the Vermont Store. The purchase went perfectly, the product was exactly as promised and it arrived in a timely manner. I put a note with it: "A gift of memories." When my wife opened it, she cried for joy.

MY AUNT THE HORSEWOMAN When I was a child in the 1930 s and 40 s my aunt had a wonderful horse named Black Raven and rode in competions always outfitted in beautiful British riding gear and apparel. She always smelled so wonderful also not just of horses but something I never forgot It was Tweed and was so reminicent of her and riding I could never find it for myself until I was in Vermont and at the Vermont Country Store Imagine my surprise and good luck I was carried back to those years and bought the fragrance then and there November 20, 2012
Long Lasting, Beautiful Fragrance 60+ year's ago my mother used Tweed Powder and Parfum. As a child I never really paid that much attention. As many year's pasted by I remembered the fragrance and went on the internet to buy it. Much to my surprise I couldn't find it or it was no longer available. The day I found out about your store was a very happy day, for after all these year's I finally found what I was searching for. I use it on my bed linen's, myself, anywhere it to smell beautiful. My mother died when she was 49 year's old, I am 69 and remember her and how she smelled, so feminine and beautiful. November 10, 2012

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Tweed …

"Like some of the other reviewers, I have been searching for Tweed for several years. I am a first-time shopper at The Vermont Country Story. After finding the perfect summer robe I've been searching for, not to mention the nightshirts and sleep pants I have found, I went to the apothecary just to browse. I am very happy I did -- I cannot believe I was blessed enough to find Tweed. I know I haven't received my purchases yet, but I have to say you have made my day! Thank you! A very happy shopper!" - Ton S, Mandan, ND

"I am 66 now. When I was very young, my mother wore Tweed. She is gone now, and I began searching for Tweed a long time ago. I finally found your catalog and website, and ordered it for myself. I never thought I'd ever find it. Every time I wear it, or just smell it from the bottle, I can see my very beautiful and young mother, and I remember what a blessing she was for me. Thank you for giving that to me." - Kathleen Fulwiler, Seattle, WA

"This was my mother's favorite scent & she wore it all her life. She first started to wear Tweed in Cuba and then later on in California. I'm talking circa 1950 to 1997. And the only place I can find it is at The Vermont Country Store. Thank you for allowing me to remember my mother in such a physical way." - Barbara Wong, Miami, FL

"I wore this when I was going with my future husband 37 years ago. So happy to have found it!" - Pam, Moorpark, CA

"My deceased husband bought this for me when I was only 17 years old, and it has always been my favorite. He has been dead for 24 years, yet it is still my favorite perfume." - Maureen blank, Williamsburg, blank

"I searched for decades for the Tweed fragrance. I wore it in my younger years, because I loved how it smelled when used by a favorite neighbor. In my adult years, I couldn't find Tweed, and I tried many, many fragrances but never found anything I liked. Then recently I learned you carry Tweed and I ordered it and confirmed how special it is. Now I love wearing it again. It makes me feel special." - Cynthia blank, Naperville, blank

"When I was a little girl and my mom would wash my hair for me, she would always put Tweed on my hair while it was still wet. It always smelled so good. Having found Tweed again brings back so many fond memories of my mom. Thank you so much!" - Jan Taylor, East Peoria, IL

"I used it when I was in high school and college and had not seen it until I saw it in the catalog." - Mimi Watson, Naples, FL

"I was wearing this when I met my husband, and he loved it. It could be the reason he asked me to marry him! I went for years trying to get more when my source stopped carrying it. Finally the mother of the fiance of my best friend, who is British, was coming over for a visit, and you guessed it -- my friend had her bring me some. Another friend had a business trip to Canada and I asked her to bring me some, which she did. Now all I have to do is log on to The Vermont Country Store and order it myself. My dear husband passed away seven years ago, after 35 of the best years of my life, and I wear this on days when I especially miss him, and it brings back joyful memories to me. Thank you for carrying this. Don't ever stop!" - Carole Brown, Chelmsford, MA

"I remember my mother having this on her dressing table. I liked the fragrance, although I wasn't allowed to wear it then. Now I can, and I am so glad to see it available." - Jacqueline, Phoenix, AZ

"I remember this perfume and talc from when I was a child, growing up in Australia. It is truly wonderful! God bless The Vermont Country Store and its excellent products." - Cheryl MacMahon, Beverly Hills, CA

"I just read all the testimonials and they were so delightful. Made my day, for I thought I was the only one that was obsessed with the smell of Tweed. I love how long it lingers on your clothes. Made my sweater drawer heavenly to open. I became acquainted when I was barely 17 with Tweed perfume. I was a girl from the hills of Missouri, working in a home part of the week for room and board and 10 dollars expense money. Five went on tuition for my business college, $2.50 for my bus fare, and $2.50 for my personal needs. I thought I was truly wealthy. The family I lived with had two children, and I was their nanny four days a week. The father traveled, and, when he came back from a trip the first time I was there, he brought gifts for his children and his wife. I was shocked, pleased, and happy, for he brought me a gift, too. A 1/8 ounce of real Tweed perfume. I had never had perfume and never dreamed I would have the real thing. I truly do love the smell and it brings back such wonderful memories. However, I had a hard time finding more of it, and when I did I was overjoyed. I have a friend who is a war bride from England. She sent me an email questionaire, and one of the questions was what was my favorite perfume. I replied, of course, with Tweed. A week later I received a package from her, and it contained not one but two bottles of Tweed. I was truly blessed and thanked her immediately. But they are gone, and her source to buy it is no longer alive, so I was happy when I found your site. I will be ordering when I finish here. Merry Christmas and thank you for making mine merry."-Shirley McCudden, Ozark, MO

"When I was 17, my parents gave me a box of little glass vials filled with Tweed fragrance. You broke off the tip and put the vial in dresser drawers and wherever you wanted a nice scent. I never forgot that special odor, and have always wanted some more Tweed. I made a trip to England a few years ago and didn't remember to look for the fragrance, but now I can just buy from The Vermont Country Store. How delightful. Thanks." - Mary Blumreich, Detroit, MI

"I have been wearing Tweed Cologne since I was 16 years old, and I love it. The stores that used to carry it no longer have it. I have a friend in Canada who told me The Vermont Country Store carries it. I am 89 years old and most likely your oldest Tweed customer. I have a friend who recognized the Tweed cologne while I was wearing it and she never used it herself. (70 years old) It is a woodsy scent like no other, and men seems to love it. Mild but not heavy cologne. " - Mary Sorrentino , Spring Hill , FL

"I received my first bottle of Tweed Perfume at age 14 and have loved it since then. A dear friend of my mother gave it to me as a gift on graduation from the 8th grade - my first grown-up perfume. I wore it for years, then for many more years was unable to find it. Thank you, VCS, for making these special and unique items available to your customers!!" - Maggie , Tucson, AZ
