As we celebrate our anniversary and 135 years of beauty, we honor our founder David H. McConnell – a pioneer, a visionary and a champion of empowering women through economic opportunity. And his mission is as relevant today as it was in 1886. From the first bottle sold by the California Perfume Company 135 years ago to the newest super-trending makeup and skin care, take a look at the Avon story and how we continue to make life beautiful.
It All Began with David H. McConnell – Avon’s Founder
In 1886, 34 years before women in the U.S. earned the right to vote, Avon’s founder, David H. McConnell, helped give them the chance to earn an independent income. He didn’t set out to create a beauty company. In fact, McConnell was a traveling book salesperson who offered fragrance samples as an additional perk to his female customers. He saw that these women were more interested in the free perfume than the books, and the California Perfume Company was born and would later become Avon. Since women had a passion for his products and loved networking with other women, McConnell was inspired to recruit them and Persis Foster Eames Albee (Mrs. Albee) became the first Sales Representative and is considered the first “Avon Lady”.
