AVON @ 125!

Beauty and Health Add comments

I have been an AVON lady for the last 3 years. AVON has been the top-direct selling company of beauty products and more in the Philippines. Their top of the lines best anti wrinkle cream to fragrant perfumes are really hitting the market. :) I went to visit a nearby AVON outlet about few days ago to pick up some orders, and I noticed a new catalogue for March 1-15, 2011 already available. I got one of the catalogues on stock and browsed through it. There are products on sale that would really interest customers and new line of items up for grab. :) Well, it is typical for an Avon catalogue to have exciting deals. What surprised me was the cover, it says 125 on it! :)

I didn’t know that Avon has been around for 125 years. I did a little research and hopefully my sources are accurate. :)

Avon was once a line of business of California Perfume Company founded by David H. McConnell in the mid-1880s. McConnell was a door-to-door salesman who offered small samples of perfumes to housewives. He named the product line of perfume with “Little Dot Perfume Set” which consisted of five scents: white rose, violet, lily of the valley, heliotrope, and hyacinth. Hence, the birth of the California Perfume Company. The first Avon Lady was Mrs. P.F.E. Albee of Winchester, New Hampshire. She was a wife of a U.S. senator.

I thought the name AVON was an acronym, but it isn’t. California Perfume Company first products was Avon’s line of business which started to have a toothbrush, cleanser, and vanity set. The name Avon was inspired by the area around the Suffern lab, which McConnell thought resembled William Shakespeare’s home in Stratford-on-Avon, England.

The California Perfume Company was renamed Avon Products because of the product line’s immense popularity and success in 1939. The current CEO and chairman of Avon Products, Inc. is Andrea Jung. While the General Manager of Avon Philippines is Mike Gudgin.
