    I bought Avon Lime about about a year and a half ago. It's my favorite Avon scent; I buy it any time I see it.

    It must be good. I haven't seen a vintage decanter for sale on my scrounging missions. Lots of Wild Country, no Lime. I'm getting good at spotting the Avon decanters, and even stumbled on a couple Shulton OS over the past holiday travel session.

    Ah, right. Thanks for the reminder I shouldn't be having this discussion here.

    I sadly dropped the last of my Lime a few years ago and have never hunted down a replacement. More often than not, the gavel and the dark green motorcycle have Lime.

    That's one I do not have. Currently in love with Windjammer and Leather. Both are fantastic.

    I picked up a boat load of Avon recently, but sadly no Leather or Windjammer. Can't remember what the scent of Windjammer is like.

    That's right, I read your post that said that ;), and Canoe is similar to Clubman. In that case I'd like it. :D

    It's my belief that this product was before they made men's products.

    That could be, I don't know the production date on this stuff. I do know it smells like the men's aftershave product.
    Any idea on when this was produced, @Billy Goatee ???

    I put my "Google Fu" to work, and found they marketed it in 1937, before the men's aftershave was in production. They kept producing it until 1969.

    Paul Turner outside the quote(s) now

    Mennen Skin-Bracer was produced in 1931-not to say this as an argument, but it appears to be 6 years in front of the one being discussed.
