    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.

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

    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 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.
