Zanol Perfumes and George Lorenz Perfumes

Zanol. The American Products Company of Cincinnati, OH first started using the brand name Zanol around 1907 when it was founded by Albert Mihalovitch, later known as Albert Mills.



The Zanol line gave women the opportunity to be door to door saleswomen for their products, much akin to Avon at the time. Women and men would knock on their neighbor's doors, get their orders then return home, order the products from the company, then when the goods were delivered, the representative would go back and deliver the products to the customers.

The Zanol Company offered perfumes, toiletries for the home, beauty preparations, home remedies, soaps,laundry essentials, Military Foot Powder, concentrated sodas, food, coffee, spices, cleansers, polishes and other household goods.

The Zanol company purchased the rights to perfumer George Lorenz' name and you may find some Zanol products marked with the Lorenz name as well.

Occasionally a sales kit or catalog from Zanol may turn up at auction. Some of the contents might include: samples of products, Catalog, price list & index, Official Order Blank, Letter of Credit to be filled out by the dealer, Illustrated flyer with product check off sheet, and more.

Even though Zanol was a nation-wide business, their products seldom come up for sale.

There may be more, if I left one out, please let me know, thanks!
