I love when a fragrance has a commercial to go along with its release. It kind of gives you the general feeling of what the fragrance is supposed to evoke, and this one for Avon Femme Eau De Parfum does that really well! Although, I’m not sure I agree with it to be honest, as I get a totally different vibe when wearing it.
Avon Femme Eau De Parfum($35) is supposed to be a glamorous and sophisticated scent, and it’s one of the best fragrances to come out from Avon in a while! I’d consider it a prestige fragrance of Avon’s, and could easily compete in any department store. Yup. It’s THAT good.
Avon Femme Eau De Parfum is a contrast of sparkling fruits and florals. It’s for the woman that exudes modern glamour with style and grace. It was created by Master Perfumer Harry Fremont, and his perfume creations include CK One, Lauren Romance, & Lauder Modern Muse. His inspiration was an elegant diamond and Hollywood Glamour. The bottle is made of heavy faceted crystal, looking like that diamond inspiration.
Sparkling Fruits: A combination of pink grapefruit, luscious pear, and peach skin gives the fragrance brightness
Feminine Flowers: Blooming jasmine petals, gardenia blossoms, magnolia and waterlily combine to enchant
Sensual Aromatics: Rich, luxurious amber woods and sweet musk add a smooth, creamy tone and warmth
Right at first spritz, Avon Femme Eau De Parfum is fruity, bright and fun! At first you think that it’s just another fruity fragrance, but give it a chance! The florals ease their way in after a couple of moments, and surprisingly the one that really stands out on me is the waterlily. I LOVE WATERLILY SCENTS. And this one is really lovely. I don’t know about the whole Hollywood Glamour feeling from the commercial that it’s supposed to evoke, but if a bouquet of heavenly flowers reminds you of Hollywood starlets, then sure. For me it’s a gorgeous floral that’s perfect for spring! Light, perfectly feminine and oh so pretty. I get about 4 hours of wear before it’s gone though, and that’s the one thing that Avon needs to work on to really compete in the fragrance arena-up that lasting power baby! But then again, that means an up in price I’m guessing. I enjoy the affordable pricing of Avon fragrances, and don’t mind having to give an extra spritz later in the day. Heck, I’ve paid over twice the price of what Avon fragrances cost and STILL have to reapply later in the day anyways. So maybe Avon IS doing it right. I think they are, especially with this scent!
