Perfume Samples

I like reading articles and books about perfumes, scents, all kinds of jewelry, basically girl stuff.  I was amused and interested by one author's description of perfume samples.                                  

Apparently before you could find samples every where, including magazines, you had to trade for samples. When someone bought a bottle of perfume they would spray some on some paper and cover that spot with something like vasaline. Then they found someone who had a 'sample' they wanted to smell. They would exchange samples sometimes even by mail.

What does this have to do with Avon?  Almost every Avon brochure has two or more samples.  If you are lucky your Avon lady is carrying samples of the latest scent. Ask her.

If you would like me to mail you a brochure please put your email and address in the comments. Any way you get them save all those samples. Tear the page out. Later I will do an article about what you can do with them.
