NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Coty Inc. (COTY) are up 4.60% to $16.15 after the beauty company and Avon Products, Inc. (AVP) announced today that they've entered into a partnership by which select Coty fragrances will be marketed and sold through Avon Brazil's network of 1.5 million independent sales representatives.
Brazil, Avon's largest market, is also the largest fragrance market globally.
