Hallo Coco! by Jovoy c1924

Hallo Coco! by Jovoy: launched in 1924. The scent was available in both perfume and face powder.

I am unsure where they got the name for the perfume other than Coco was a popular name for parrots. however, a 1921 newspaper article in the Des Moines Register noted that "That Germany is flooding Paris with cocaine using women of the underworld to import the drug from Berlin, is the belief from Paris police, who have instituted a rigid investigation and expect to announce important arrests. One large boulevard cafe is the headquarters for selling narcotic, for which a charge of only a franc a gram is made. A cocaine seller was shot in the stomach Saturday evening by a policeman in Rue Caumartin, the seller of Paris. The drug venders always begin the conversation with prospective purchasers with "Hello, coco," which means "I've got cocaine to sell."

Where Should I Apply Perfume?

As a general rule, fragrance should be applied to pulse points. This is where the blood vessels are closest to the skin giving off more heat and acting like mini fragrance pumps.
