Hand creamNorwayYes, I remember Norwegian hand cream brand Neutrogena had become popular in my country some years ago because of their ads using Norwegian fishermen who have soft and smooth hands
PerfumeFranceNot really, French perfume brands aren’t special I guess
NutellaItalyWell, Italy’s chocolates are not famous as much as Swiss or Belgian chocolates. I’d say no to this, because I didn’t buy Nutella considering its Country of Origin.
