When they were readily available here it was usually with a B22d base.

This is the "Real Mc Coy" too....a Weert one, note the "Asterisk" mark of the Weert plant. Here in Australia we more commonly come across the Sidorajo ones from the plant in Sidorjo, just south of Surabaya.
An emigrating Dutch family or person many have bought this with them because the coloured E27 capped ones from Weert are VERY RARE here.
Note how the artwork on the box depicts the older style where the powder coating is wiped away inside the neck prior to butt sealing....later they allowed the powder much closer to the butt-seal point leaving no clear gap....personally, I prefer the clear gap, it gives the lamp more pernache!

J9, September 1989!

I remember these from the late 1980's in the dual boxes in New Zealand . They had hint of blue, yellow and some others too. Only in 60w; other wattages including 100w and maybe 40w versions were just single pack and white with no tinting.

It was the same here Al. I bought up samples of all the colours and still have all, packed away in the collection, no E27 capped versions though!

Hint of Pink
Hint of Lemon
Hint of Green
Hint of Blue
Hint of Lavander
I have also heard of Hint of Beige, but never seen one!

@Globe Collector: these were bought from BBC Hardware (formerly Nock and Kirby), George Street, Sydney as part of the closing down sale of their city store before re-locating to the suburbs (Ashfield). BBC Hardware was re-named Hardwarehouse then they became Bunnings.

@AL_M: I think the white ones were available in 25, 40, 60 and 100w.

There was also Hint of Peach. I had a twin pack of the B22d version. Used until E.O.L. and now long gone, but that was years ago now.

I had a niggling feeling there was one I had forgotten!

BBC Hardware, we had it here too, but it was decades ago.

We had Hardware House in NZ too until they were taken over by Bunnings in the early 2000's.

I recall a 100w Soft Tone exploding in our kitchen in the early 1990's. Luckily it was semi-enclosed so the glass shot down and not sideways.

Did it explode on switch-on as a violent E.O.L?
I've had a 60w Indonesian-made Softone trip the breaker when it went E.O.L. at switch-on.

When did they stop making Softones? I'm sure I remember them well into the 00s. My bedroom was lit by peach Softone as a kid in the 90s.

White incandescent Softone's are still listed in Philips' catalogue. Don't know if they are new old stock and whether they are still making them. I haven't seen them available here for years.

I now know that both the Weert and Sidorajo plants are closed. they were also made in Dijon, (France) and Pabjanice, (Poland). Not sure if these are closed or re-tooled for semiconductor.
