Currier and Ives Toiletries

Many cultural touchstones of my youth have vanished, and mean nothing now to new generations.

"Currier and Ives" is one such.

At one time this name meant "nostalgic popular culture invocations of the nineteenth century." But given that meaning, what kind of smells would you necessarily associate with it? Horse manure? Coal fires? Unwashed longjohns? Was that what was meant by "manly elegance?

Currier and Ives imagery was very popular in the 1950s and 60s — my parents had a lot of similarity themed items. Popular fragrances included Cholera, TB and Musty Draperies. :/
