Review of Avon Far Away Dreams by violette
I don't know about elsewhere in the world, but this EDP is still available in Avon boutiques in my country. I have no idea if it's a limited edition or what, but I think it was launched here end of last year (or was it early this year?). I'm not very sure. Anyway, this is a great flanker of the original. It's a lighter version of Far Away, but with a tropical twist. This is like the spring/summer version of Far Away (the latter, being a heavier Oriental, is definitely more suited to cold weather/winter, IMO). So, if you like/love the original, but want a lighter version for the warmer/hotter months, you might want to check this one out. This had me constantly sniffing my wrist. Very, very nice! I couldn't find the complete list of notes for this perfume anywhere, but in the 16-30 November 2010 catalog, Avon describes it as "A joyful dream of sunny peach, tropical mango and lush florals." Yeah, I can definitely smell the peach, mango, some florals (orange blossom? jasmine? magnolia? don't know, I'm not very good at identifying flowers) & also a delicious creamy note (vanilla? coconut? both?). This is definitely one of Avon's best to date & one of my favorites in their current fragrance line-up (the other being Vanilla Soft Musk). A surprisingly nice perfume at an affordable price. Rating: 4 1/2 lippies.
