    Re: Article: 'Coty calling...": Avon rejects Coty's acquisition attempt

    I have not seen or owned an AVON product for 25+ years.

    With that said, I have good memories of AVON's soap on a rope when I was really young. It was cool to hang the soap from the bathtub taps. Maybe this is when I started my interest in scents.

    When I smell a discount cologne and the opening burns my nose with alcohol...its Coty.
    If I'm in blind buy mode I donít buy Coty anymore. So maybe its good AVON is free of Coty.

    Avon needs to go right on being Avon, so that those of us who aren't too well off (or just too snobbish :) ) to be seen with an Avon rep have someplace to go for good products, which they usually are, at a great price. A Coty merger WOULD raise prices, as such things often do, and frags I love would be lost.

    I respect people that go out and try to make a living selling Avon.

    Avon are in chaos it seems.
    It does look bad. My step-mom is an Avon lady (she gives us a share of Avon for Christmas every year) and I still wear lots of Avon products, hope they improve with new management. Thanks for sharing the article, my husband is British and it's nice to see something from The Guardian.
