    Looks like your list is full, which is no problem. I already have a number of these. I'll sit back and read y'all's reactions and enjoy. But I do want to let you know that I can get some of these for a buck a bottle if anyone's interested. A local second-hand shop has a bushel basket of old Avon, mostly male. I remember seeing lots of Wild Country, at least one Oland, and several Spicy, which I notice is not on your list. Maybe it's Avon's take on Old Spice? Anyway, if you'd like any of these, or want me to go back to check them out better, let me know.

    P.S. If you'd like some Spicy to add to the sample pass, I'd be happy to donate some.

    I'm very late to the party and apologize. If something opens up, let me know. If not, no worries. I do have a handful of these and can still contribute.

    I left it out because it's only an after shave and these are all colognes, but I do have some. As for cheap Avon, I'm all ears and can PM you.

    Ebenas is tentative depending where we are in the pass when they're in the US. I'm filling these sample vials to the brim so we can see where we're at further in and if there's enough to go around.

    That's what I like to see. All lined up like Avon soldiers! This is going to be a riot. I hope you are leaving one or two un-reviewed and mystery. This may be... the Pass of the year.

    Avon should be watching this!

    Avon for Men/Avon Original and 'Vigorate are not in the directory and the powers that be have waffled about adding them (they're practically ancient in perfume terms so that's -1, they're Avon, so that's -2, and both were interchangeably sold/labelled as both cologne and after shave, so that's -3), so there are no reviews on them. Plus, no other online database has them either.

    On an unrelated note, I boxed them already. Just gotta sort who gets first mail dibs

    It looks like you're overseas by the color of your flag, so I'm not sure these samples would make it.

    But it would still be a one-way trip because your family friend has to mail it to you overseas once he gets it, then you have to mail it to the next person back here in the US (because everyone else here is in the US or Canada) when done sampling, unless you're at the very back of the list, in which case there's no guarantee there'll be juice left. Hence, why I limited this to CONUS (Continental United States, but made an exception for Purecaramel in Canada because their customs is pretty good)

    Here's the thing: if you REALLY want old Avon, there's TONS of it in the US, and you can pay literally less for it than a McDonald's cheeseburger, so get your family friend to buy it and ship to you. I can help you find it, in any bottle design you want, and maybe when this pass is all done, you can get the leftovers

    Or, I'll see if I can part with a few more ml's just for you (because I'm still hoarding and stocking up those damned car bottles.. it's a sickness) so I'll always have plenty of it to share unless somebody decides to break in my house and use it for moonshine.

    That's a pity. Full speed ahead is the way to go with these old frags. Own it, and let those around you bask in your glory. If I get to smell Clint, I feel it appropriate to cowboy up my attire for the occasion... including a new "BAMF" belt buckle.

    Avon calling! They've arrived and this pass is amazing. ZC is extremely generous; the decants are enormous! The box is emanating a handsome, retro regular joeness and I mean that as the highest of compliments. Can't wait to dig in!

    Starting tomorrow with Avon for Men, which I shall accompany with Rear Window for my viewing and sniffing pleasure. Thanks, ZC!

    What a great idea. It would be fun to pair each one up with a different Hitchcock movie. Maybe even from a similar era.

    In the case of Avon for Men, you've got the celebrity connection right in 'Rear Window': Jimmy Stewart.

    That's right where my head was at! Love Jimmy Stewart and am a Hitchcock nut. Jimmy was of course fantastic in everything, though. Rear Window is quite possibly my favorite movie ever, so naturally I chose it to pair with Jimmy's scent. Plus, he plays such a rugged type in that one and the fragrance is called Avon for MEN after all. But yes, it is the wrong decade. Would be fun to try to stick close to matching release years! I probably couldn't hit them all since I'll likely be sampling more than one most days, but I may have to try to pair a few with a movie (Hitchcock, of course!) from their time. A brilliant idea!

    If I do an 80's and 90's Avon pass, you'll be encouraged to pair each scent with a different hair metal and grunge act from the relevant year. XD

    Rear Window is my 2nd favorite Hitch, after Notorious. And the perfect pairing for another Jimmy viewing would be 'Vigorate ('57) with Vertigo ('58). Which sounds like it might be a good match for the neurotic side of Jimmy.

    That one and Harvey are the best comic Jimmy performances, for sure.

    Oh, Notorious is so good too, Cook.bot! Haven't watched that one in a while which is something I will remedy soon. I did just watch Vertigo but that pairing is a must! '57 and '58 and both V words, lol! Too good to resist and I do love Vertigo.

    You need samples of Aqua Net and CKOne. There's your pass.
