March 21 is National Fragrance Day!
Now that I’m selling Avon, I’m so happy to post my husband’s keepsake Avon vintage cologne bottles. He restored a ’65 Corvette and once owned a ’36 Ford, so these were appropriate gifts for him at the time (although admittedly, he would prefer to own the actual ’65 Corvette than the cologne!).
Did you know that Avon started with perfume?
In 1886, Avon’s founder, David H. McConnell, was a traveling book salesman and offered beauty products as an additional perk to his female customers. When he saw that women were more interested in the free perfume samples than the books, he was inspired to recruit them as sales representatives. From a small New York City office, McConnell himself mixed the company’s first fragrances.
California Perfume recruited women (then called “Depot Agents”) who would not have to travel but would sell to other women through their network of social relations in their own communities. This was one of the first direct sales business opportunities for women. And Avon has supported women in business ever since.
