Re: speaking of going overboard for a Christmas gift

I didn't even know Avon was still around.  Clearly they have morphed into something else.

I haven't even thought about Avon in a few years.  At one time, I was a big customer and I sold it for a while when I was a sahm.  I suppose someone will pay $1000 for it.  I wouldn't call it a foolish perchase, if the person likes it and has the money to pay for it.  


@chrystaltree  Thank you, my sentiments exactly.

Re: speaking of going overboard for a Christmas gift

@lampwick I think it's butt ugly. For years, since I was a young teen and later, I loved and bought Cotillion in all its forms. I would love to find it again but I know it's gone.

 

The only thing in my 20's that even came close, fragrance wise, was the original Love's Baby Soft.

 

Sigh. I miss them both.

Gee, I'm surprised this isn't on QVC and I can just hear the hosts say how this would make a great "stocking stuffer"......😄

Re: speaking of going overboard for a Christmas gift

geez that’s a big no.  I think I treat myself when I buy $60 perfume.  Avon would be a no for sure.  When I look at all the holiday sets everywhere for great brands and reasonable costs.  

 

Ok, I will take Donny also.   Hehe.

People still wear perfume?  I thought that went out years ago.   And that thing is tacky too.

This item is from Avon's brochure for C-1.  It's a bottle of perfume for 1,000.  Would anyone here pay that much for perfume?  I think their new owners from Korea are really banking on customers who don't mind being foolish with their money.


What is C-1?
