Can some one in my aged age group (or older) identify the toiletry in this description in a TV commercial circa the early fifties? The winner will be immortalized in a footnote.   Don Johnson 




         Line 412ff                                      The Cause of Poetry on Channel 8.

                                                  A nymph came pirouetting, under white

                                                  Rotating petals, in a vernal rite

                                                  To kneel before an altar in a wood

                                                  Where various articles of toilet stood.
