Timeless cologne came out in the fall of 1974 and was, at that time, "The most successful fragrance introduction in Avon history." according to Avon's 1974 Annual Report. In a four-week introductory period, 4 million Timeless Cologne Mists were sold. When combined with the Ultra Perfume Rolette and the Ultra Creme Perfume, sales totaled over $14 million in net sales for the three-month period sold in 1974.
In "The Greatest Story Ever Told - Avon's Centennial" booklet put out in 1986, it mentions that Timeless is said to be the best selling fragrance in Europe.
We purchased this collection at an estate auction. It includes:
1. Two 2 ounce empty Timeless Ultra Cologne Mist bottles measuring about 5 1/4 inches tall by about 1 3/4 inches wide at its widest part.
2. One Timeless Perfumed Body Talc, 3.5 ounce. This appears to be almost full of talc. On the bottom of the box it has a date of 1995. The container has a few flaws, but is otherwise in good condition. It is 5 1/4 inches tall by 2 inches in diameter.
3. Country Christmas Collection, 1 ounce bottle that is over 1/2 full. On the bottom of the box it has a date of 1982. The bottle is in excellent condition, but the box did not fare so well over the years. It measures 4 1/2 inches tall by about 1 1/2 inches wide at its widest point.
If you are an Avon collector, this is a MUST HAVE for your collection!
