Hard for me to comment on the packaging quality as I got the purse size which was $2.50. But the price for the larger perfume seems reasonable. This isn't an awful or offensive fragrance, it's just not really me. It's too sweet for me, smells like baby powder with a lot of sweetness, but doesn't have that clean soapy smell I crave with powdery scents. Will not be buying a larger size of this one.
I tried this on, and the smell was quite strong. i did not think I would like this. But it dried down to a beautiful soapy floral! This is one of the most beautiful scents I have smelled in quite some time! Will purchase a full bottle of this soon!!!
Really surprised by all of the comments of ppl hating the smell. I really like the sweetness of the scent. It smells pleasant to me and will not overpower your clothes. It won't stay on all day but it does linger a little and has a nice vanilla, warm sugar smell (if you like that ). Very affordable.
First I bought the talcum powder. I loved it but the fragrance was so light so I upgraded to the mini perfume for 4 bucks. Loved it and couldn't believe that this is an Avon scent! I ended up buying the shower gel, body lotion and scented skin softener.
This perfume is wonderful and is a steal when it's on sale. The only thing that gives this fragrance away as an Avon scent is its short longevity. It goes on strong, but tones down very quickly.
The notes for this fragrance are orange, amber, sandalwood, gardenia, coconut, musk, violet, freesia, vanilla, osmanthus, peach, jasmine, ylang-ylang and rose. It is an ambery floral with fruit and powder tones. This is a very feminine bosomy perfume. If you like unisex or very muted scents, you will probably not appreciate it.
My new favourite!
Like a dayglo, Fauvist mashup of Gaultier Classique/Lancome Poeme. Bright, garish and thoroughly enjoyable at the right time.
I bought a set with the perfume, shower gel, body lotion, shimmer powder, and "skin softener" (which appears to be a lighter textured lotion with a heavier scent than the lotion) all for $13, so a good price. I really like the scent, but it doesn't seem to have lasting power on me. For $13 that doesn't bother me; I wouldn't pay full price. I put 'repurchase' but only if it came as a set. The bottle is cute but a little bit cheap looking. I rated this a 4 due to the fact that it is a nice inexpensive fragrance, not because it's the ~best ever~ or a 4/5 of all fragrances.
I used this perfume for years & loved it . It's like a fancy designer fragrance , but with a fraction of its price ..The reviewers here have done a great job describing how unique it is . Sadly, I cannot purchase again as it coincided with the most horrible period of my life :( ... Though , I strongly recommend it to young women who are in their 20 's and looking forward to make a statement in life , mature ladies would also love it ..But I don't think it can be popular amongst much younger ladies or teens ... continued >>
My fave scent :)
I love everything about this smell, it reminds me of being in the South of France - it really lives up to it's name.
Love the price as it's quite a fancy perfume without a fancy price.
Pretty bottle too - My fave part is the pink & black lid.
The only downside is it could last more on my skin.
Sprayed on pillows it lasts
all in all a good decent gorgeous product, I hope they never stop making this. continued >>
Too strong and too sweet. Very good lasting power.
I love this fragrance. It has great staying power, it is warm and lovely especially in the winter months. Distinctive but I do not find it overpowering or too sweet. The price is very reasonable and it is often on special offer. The bottle is pretty enough. Others have described the notes of this fragrance better than I can, but overall, I just find this a lovely warm rich inviting perfume.
