Charles Jundt took over a Manhattan beauty salon in 1916. This salon was located in the New York City Ritz (Ritz-Carlton) hotel. Mr. Jundt founded his own cosmetics company is 1919 and began marketing beauty products under the name “Charles of the Ritz” in 1926. A line of perfumes was added in 1927. Further research revealed that Charles of the Ritz created and sold Jean Nate beginning in 1935. Jean Nate always reminds me of my grandma. She always had the body splash and bath soap in her bathroom. Also, I just really liked this summer time ad. I am quite enamored of the old soda fountains and wish we still had places like this around today. It would be so much fun!
