Avon

Avon was strictly an American phenomenon, and a unique and pioneering one at that. The first Avon Lady was actually a man, young door-to-door salesman David McConnell from upstate New York. He launched Avon Calling in 1886, offering women cosmetics in the comfort and privacy of their own homes. By 1887, McConnell had twelve women employees selling a line of eighteen fragrances. And the numbers kept growing and growing. In 1939, California Perfume Company name changed to Avon Products, Inc. (10/6/39.) Today, despite the scores of expensive, prestigious American and foreign brand-name cosmetics, Avon ranks first in sales nationwide, with Avon Ladies ringing doorbells from coast to coast.

Far Away Gold

Yesterday

I've found Far Away Gold to be very similar to the original Far Away fragrance, with the main difference on me being that the floral notes are lighter in this edition and just a bit less powdery. The vanilla also seems a little bit more developed on me, which makes the fragrance creamier and a bit sweeter then the original edition too.

Official scent notes: peach, freesia …

Skin So Soft Soft and Sensual Replenishing Hand Cream

I don't generally like to support/buy Avon products, but I have a friend who does and will often give out various products as gifts - which is how I ended up with this hand cream. I did not have any allergic reactions or anything extreme but there's several reasons I think this only deserves a 2/5. First, the scent is odd.
