Oland is great stuff!
I love that bottle and have only seen one like it but it was empty and the seller wanted £20. Do all the Avon scents have their own 'normal' bottles with their names on? Those are what I look for the most.
Yes, I believe they all had basic non-novelty bottles, but I would assume those were the ones that were used more often than the novelty glass, so that's why those are harder to find.I love that bottle and have only seen one like it but it was empty and the seller wanted £20.

Nice!I was thrilled to receive this today, a 120ml Oland aftershave in a truly fantastic bottle. I also have the cologne version of this in a motor car decanter and when I have used this aftershave I will decant the cologne into this wonderful bottle. I notice my bottle top is a different colour to the example posted above by masonjarjar. Great scent this!

Inspired by this, I dug out my VW-Rabbitt/Jetta-full of Light Musk for the SOTD.Light Musk to me, smells almost like Jovan musk - but not as strong. Reminds me of what I had in high school.
I had been looking at this thread for about 2 weeks since I got my first bottles and kept wondering how people are finding all of these Avon bottles because I only see them on the auction sites. Well today I found out ...
I plan to fill some of the empties up with other stuff like the Veg (yes, it chose me) and Special Reserve.
probably one of the many many colognes they released in the 80's.. I am curious as well!
