There’s an Avon cologne on the bedside table in Joan Crawford’s hospital room. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to identify the exact scent. Avon used the same faceted bottle and stoppers in different colours for different fragrances, but I found no information about the scent contained in the black-stopper bottle.
In any case, I’m very thankful for the lovely community of perfume lovers on Instagram who helped me out with the id. Balsamiclilac, Amusedarcher, Meliscentsvintage and Aromablog, your help was much appreciated ♥
