    B3054FCC-A4C3-4856-81A3-6F54146A59BB.jpeg Thursday mail call is 2 vintage full Avon aftershave bottles with their boxes. On the left is Cavalier from 1989; on the right is Blue Blazer. The Blue Blazer I’m not sure when it was made so if any of you know comment below. I got both these aftershaves for about less than $20 total on eBay.

    :happy096: From the 60's to the mid to late 70's the gay 90's (1890's) look and lettering was very popular with Avon. From @gorgo2 and @RyX Blue Blazer is similar to Pinaud Clubman. Though I've never had the opportunity to try it (Blue Blazer that is), it sounds like I'd appreciate it.

    I have a big ole bottle of Blue Blazer. Just used it last week!
    SOTD 08202019.gif The bottle above may date to 1964 & has a standard screw top under the red cover much like many Avon products. I assume the scent has crossed the decades like many vintage offerings. I find it a little on the sweet side on initial application. As that dries down there is a scent reminiscent to Old Spice. It's supposed to be a clone (Not by Avon! Yup many are.) of Caswell-Massy's discontinued Jockey Club. That scents consisted of;
    To compare with Shulton's Old Spice the citrus, jasmine and geranium are shared. It's listed as;

    1. Top Notes
      • Orange,
      • Lemon,
      • Spices,
      • Clary sage,
      • Anise,
      • Aldehydes
    2. Heart Notes
      • Cinnamon,
      • Carnation,
      • Geranium,
      • Jasmine,
      • Heliotrope,
      • Pimento berry
    3. Base notes
      • Vanilla,
      • Musk,
      • Cedarwood,
      • Frankincense,
      • Benzoin,
      • Tonka,
      • Ambergris.

    Avon Island Lime
    Super Cycle
    5 oz.

    This is Avons version of Old Spice Lime. It is a more masculine scent, with a heavier emphasis on musk, and a strong lime scent. This is a little easier to come by, than the Old Spice version, and not as expensive. Still, not as readily available as other Avon Aftershaves. Great smell though. For a full bottle, at $10.53, it was a steal. It is missing the handlebars. But, I wanted it, for the juice.

    There's a good write up at basenotes. Except for the bay rum component (Just me, not a fan) it does sound like it might smell decent. It's also discontinued so if you like it buy it up.

    Shulton Old Spice
    2 1/8 oz Travel Aftershave
    5 oz Soap on a Rope.

    The soap smells very strong. That's a good thing. Also, the Aftershave is full and still smells great.
