1905 cigarette advertisement, advertising psychology
Bicycles, pants & tobacco:  young liberated women of 1905 in a cigarette advertisement represented a doubling of the market.  Tobacco advertisers appropriated women's rights then,
just as they would again 65 years later with Phillip Morris'  "You've come a long way, Baby"

1960s Kool menthol cigarettes
Wikipedia: Menthol's ability to chemically trigger the cold-sensitive TRPM8 receptors in the skin is responsible for the well-known
cooling sensation it provokes when inhaled, eaten, or applied to the skin. In this sense, it is similar to capsaicin, the chemical
responsible for the spiciness of hot chilis (which stimulates heat sensors, also without causing an actual change in temperature).

1971 Eve cigarettes package illustration
1971 Eve cigarettes in a soft pack: Eves are still sold today
Wikipedia: The advertising approach was to make Eve appear to be a beautiful cigarette which made the woman who chose to smoke Eves more attractive, creating a sense of appeal to feminine vanity. Accordingly, the objective was to capture the market share from other brands, particularly other brands targeted to women, and to recruit non-smokers, suggesting that an Eve smoker is more attractive than a woman who did not smoke.
