La Grande - exquisitely available at a proud price and worth every mark
Hardly anyone will know La Grande who did not grow up in the former GDR. And even there not everyone knew him, because he was only available for a lot of money in the Exquisit. Exquisite shops were boutiques for those who wanted and could put their East Marks into overpriced clothes and cosmetics. Away from the KONSUM or HO department stores, where there was the same thing everywhere. Inexpensive, but fashion, style and taste are usually far behind.
So whoever had could. I remember when I was in ninth grade, I started using shower gel. I got it for my 16th birthday. Today some won't understand that it was something special. That even shower gel was rather rare in the GDR. There were only a few sorts in the middle of the 80's and these were quickly sold out. When we went to sports, to the swimming pool, we always took these plastic soap boxes with us, mostly with soap, which you would take back to the drugstore today, because you could only guess the perfume in it. Good to the one who once received a LUX soap or Fa or CD from his relatives.
Or the one who got La Grande shower bath for his birthday. But the shower bath did not last forever and even in exquisite, where this shower gel, I think to remember, cost around 27.50 Marks (at an average salary of 1,200 Marks) this was not always available.
So you had to look for the series in the bigger county towns. And soon I bought the deodorant scooter for 30 marks in Rostock. He then replaced the old quartet spray, which guaranteed freshness only up to the 3rd hour. Later I even found an EdT and After Shave in Berlin. I think I put a lot of money into this brand from my holiday jobs. But the scent accompanied me, on my first dates, on love sorrows as well as on my first moped rides, in the movies (don't ask what kind of movies we watched, but admission was, I think, 50 pfennigs) as well as in exams and at family celebrations.
I'd give a lot of money to smell him again today. Today I'm upset that I didn't keep a bottle. The black one was the variant for men, the white one for women.
Today it might be hard to understand where Roja, Clive Christian and Creed are - but he was my La Grande!
