It is surprising to read that some people would never purchase an Avon fragrance! Somehow this judgment appears to ignore the fact that the same fragrance houses and star perfumers who create for Estee Lauder, LVMH, Puig, etc. also work on Avon briefs and supply the Avon juices. If one does not like the Avon brand, fair enough, but Avon definitely delivers "bang for the buck" as they do not use inferior blends/ingredients. In fact, Avon are incredibly demanding about fragrance quality and they have some of the toughest toxicology guidelines. I like to smell with my nose rather than my eyes.
