I really and truly have no appropriate words to describe how BAD this product is. This is like spreading playdough on your lips, it just doesn't stick well and the glitter in this thing is rough enough to use these lipglosses as a lip exfoliator. They are rough, apply choppy, have zero lasting power, too sheer and NOT cheap!I bought a whole pack of these (10) without swatching or reading reviews. TK Maxx had them at £20/set and I thought bargain! I will never ever have to buy lipglosses again, how wrong I was! I would be very upset even to receive these as a gift. I would not be repurchasing!

Shortly after this first came out, it hit the bargain stores big time. It was everywhere, online discount sites were pushing it, and I didn't like it. I'm not sure why I didn't - it has four of my favorite notes: lily of the valley, lemon, orange, amber. There's also a very subtle musk and it's possible to find a streak of jasmine in the very subtle waft of LOTV.The gestalt is a clean, slightly orangey/lemony powder, with a softly warm vanillic/woody base. On my skin the sillage and lasting power could be better, but one does keep getting whiffs of this and it's delicious. It's a great party/group fragrance because it's subtle and could pass easily for shampoo and innate sexiness. It also works well in an office -- again, light, but also very classy and subtle.I wish this were still widely available. I love the packaging.

Many years ago when this first cam out, I had a sample and whenever I wore it.. I got compliments. I never get complimented on a fragrance. So years go by and I am searching for a new fragrance.... I tried chance, Gucci flora, burberry beat... and while those are fine... nothing was what I was looking for. I then remembered The AV and purchased it online without even remembering what it smelled like. at first sniff in the bottle.. it does smell a little off. I understand the aqua velva aftershave comments... but you must try it on.It's soft, floral, clean and fresh.. not a sickening sweet floral or a too strong oriental. It's worth a try and great for a light daytime clean fragrance. I do not think it smells cheap or cloying. The only problem is that I cannot detect it very much on myself....but others do and it's all good.this is def worth a try

Lemony roses very well executed. The bottle is beautiful. I've said I would but again - and I might, for someone else. For me, it's a little too bright and a bit too tart. But if you love lemony citrus scents, this is very pretty.

I like this fragrance - it's very fresh and slightly flowery. But, for me this is not a must have, there is nothing that stands out about it as memorable. Yet, it's airy and very light, so if you are a lover of light fragrances, or have a sensitivity to stronger scents, this might be the one you will love. It's feminine and lovely but unfortunately it had no staying power on me... This is not something I would buy, at least not for myself. All I can say is try it and see if it works for you...
