Vintage Avon find

I have that one (it wasn't full, sadly, about 1/4th.. ) but I poured what I did have into an empty Oland bottle.. much easier to use that way, and I display the empty car with some others that I've decanted into other bottles

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 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!

Nice!

Yeah, I've got the same, but with the fake wood top.

Just a super scent. Look for the oakmoss/ash note!

It can be quite addictive. Some nice Avon there. Congratulations.

I went to an estate sale (it was outside but still had masks and gloves) and seems someone was into Avon cars!

Front row filled, back two empty. Scents were Wild Country, Spicy, Deep Woods, Tai Winds, Oland, Seazone and Light Musk (in the VW Rabbit).

32 in total

What is light musk like?
 
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 ... :001_tongu

I plan to fill some of the empties up with other stuff like the Veg (yes, it chose me) and Special Reserve.

Inspired by this, I dug out my VW-Rabbitt/Jetta-full of Light Musk for the SOTD.

Close shave; slapped on two handfuls of the Light Musk ... it began to burn ... :bayrum2:

Oh, no! Not again! :letterk1:

I slapped COLOGNE on my face, not aftershave! 🤦

Now I smell like somebody else's Junior High, and my face is on fire ...

Luckily hyaluronic acid was right there. Threw IT on after the cologne-dousing ... thusly making a moisturizing but too smelly balm. Eau de teenage locker room.

Did that once with Avon Wild Country cologne. Could have swore it was aftershave ... but rather kinda stronger.

I should read the bottles.
