Blend 7 is my favorite.Decanted some Blend 7 from a hinky old car into a non-tacky corked bottle. Worked really well with PAA Diver Down.
Very nice haul!Mostly NOS finds....
Treasure right there!Mostly NOS finds....
Lol. I always feel guilty to toss those vintage Avon bottles for some reason! I always decant the juice, then donate the bottles to Goodwill. I don't know if they try to sell them or throw them away themselves.Treasure right there!
My pot bellie stove has Bravo, one of their funky best. Tabac meets banana! And Avon Lime, never leave behind. I'm pitching the boxes and old car bottles, but love the aftershave.
You got a few Bracing Lotions. Mine broke but it was fairly generic. Tribute there is wonderful... Excalibur is the faintest of all.
It is amazing how many common empty Avon novelty bottles you see for sale on the bay. Some empty aftershave and edt bottles, both Avon and others, do seem to sell, but I cannot imagine who buys them or why.Lol. I always feel guilty to toss those vintage Avon bottles for some reason!

I found all of the AVON stuff at a single estate sale, the house was full of product (several rooms full). I actually scanned through most of everything there.....looking solely for ISLAND LIME and that was all that I could find (the 2 boxes on the left hand side are full, the clear vintage bottle is empty, the green triangular bottle is half full and the small sample bottle is about 3/4 full). I am going to transfer the STRAIGHT EIGHT product into the clear vintage bottle and use that.....and will look to sell the rest.Very nice haul!
Anytime you can find the very hard to find Island Lime, you have scored big time. I picked up a good haul last year from a thrift store with many NOS boxes of vintage Avon. 4 bottles of Island Lime came with the haul. I like it ok, but I was surprised to find, it didn't overly impress me as the wonderful lime AS I had read so much about.
I also picked up some Blend 7 and Excalibur, two Avon's I hadn't yet tried. Love the Excalibur, Blend 7 is also, just ok. The others I got were just to add to the collection of ones I already have, Tribute, Deep Woods, more Tai Winds, (always got to have Tai Winds in my inventory,) Everest and a few others.
Did you pick up that vintage Pinaud glass bottle with the Avon? Good find! I have one just like it. Getting harder to find Pinaud glass with the plastic lid.
I have the exact Pinaud glass bottle. I cleaned mine out and decanted Clubman into mine.The vintage PINAUD glass bottle was also from an estate sale, but a different one. I had it together with the AVON stuff, and decided to throw it in the picture too! Undecided on what I want to do with it at this point.....I think it had Lilac Vegetal in it.
