I don't know who this was made by but I recall the fragrance grandma wore was called Ashes of Roses.
The name puzzled me as a kid, I thought why would anyone want to smell like a burnt flower lol!
I can't recall the smell, sadly.
This reminds me of that scene in The Thorn Birds where the colour of Meggie's party dress is described as Ashes of Roses. l can't seem to post an image, but if you do a search there are pictures of it online. lt was a kind of pale, ashy pink with a vaguely lilac cast, what we used to call dusky pink. l guess it was very fashionable during that time period.
