Lever Brothers is running ads on TV and in the women’s press next week to launch the Country Garden version of the fabric conditioner brand Comfort. Country Garden will replace its green bottle equivalent, Island Fresh – dropped because of poor sales.

Lenor’s share decreased from 38 per cent to 36 per cent in the same period.
