Ariane Cologne: An Avon Classic
I not only prefer vintage when it comes to my entertainment (radio, television, books, and films), I prefer vintage when it comes to many things in life – from dishes to jewelry. I simply have the heart of a vintage lover and that’s all there is to it.
While I buy, use, and thoroughly enjoy today’s perfumes, there’s a part of me that carries a torch for the classic perfumes from Avon. I miss the especially decorative bottles – and the men’s cologne bottles! They were so creative. Remember the ones shaped like cars??
My favorite Avon scents were (and are, as several are still very much in production, thank goodness!) Ariane, Soft Musk, Pavi Elle, Sweet Honesty, and Magic Evening Musk. Those that aren’t made today can, at least be found online (Amazon and eBay always come through for me!).
Not long ago, I was thinking about my favorite Avon scents after one of my sweet daughters surprised me with a bottle of Sweet Honesty. I remembered the beautiful bottles and how fun it was to collect each theme. I searched online and found the beautiful, nostalgically magical bottle of Ariane Heavenly Angel Cologne. I had quite a few of the scents from this collection in the 80s and thought how much I wish I had held onto them.
Then it hit me… “If you loved them THEN, you’ll love them NOW!” and that’s all the encouragement I needed, I ordered this one immediately and anxiously waited for it to be delivered.
When it came, I tore it out of the package and smelled it immediately. It took me back to the 80s when I pretty much smelled either like Ariane or Sweet Honesty every single day.
I found mine on eBay, but I believe you can find Ariane Heavenly Angel Cologne and others on Amazon as well. I look forward to collection all of the ones I can find in these beautiful angel bottles. Avon collectibles like this would make extra special gift ideas for vintage lovers in your life.
