Avon: Where It All Began
Believe it or not, Avon was founded by a failed travelling bookseller by the name of David H. McConnell in 1886. Yes, a man! He came up with the idea of creating a fragrance to give to women who bought his books. The fragrance was such a hit with the ladies that he quit the book business and concentrated on the fragrance business instead.
His business became the California Perfume Company. Mrs P.F. Albee became the first woman to sell McConnell's fragrant water and also recruit other women as commission-based representatives. He became a pioneer in giving women independence, financially and securely.
Over 60 Years of Loving the UK
It’s been over 60 years since Avon launched in the UK, growing to become a household name that everyone knows and loves. From ‘ding-dong’ deliveries of our beloved brochures to sharing stories on Instagram, we’ve grown to become a beauty brand people connect with.
In 1959 Avon cosmetics opened in the UK and for the first time, women were given a friendly way to buy cosmetics in the comfort of their home. Women were able to become Avon Representatives and begin earning an independent income.
‘Ding Dong, Avon Calling’, became a British catchphrase last used in the early 60's and to this day is happily remembered. In the decades that followed Avon became one of the top beauty brands in the UK. To this very day, Avon is a top 5 beauty brand in the UK
