I sprayed this on the first time, and wasn't impressed. I didn't wear it for about a week, and tried it again. Wow! Something must have been wrong with my nose! I definitely smell peach tea in this! It goes on very floral, but the dry down is amazing! Such a soft comforting scent! Great job Avon and Reese!

I'm unsure about this one its not bad, theirs that beautiful fresh peach tea smell then something cloying about it I think its gardenia, magnolia, jasmine. It very white floral not me though it may suit others. Yes it reminds me of "Gone with the wind", sipping glasses of ice tea perhaps peach mmm...

Juicey peaches and gardenias are what I smell. As a southern girl those are 2 scents I would associate with my region ,too. Wear this fragrance too long you will be talking with a southern drawl and quoting Gone With the Wind.
This is just a beautiful scent to wear. Not your typical Avon fragrance ( though I can't seem to stop giving them my money ! )
To my knowledge it has NOT been discontinued . It is still in the brochure . But to be on the safe side I better stock up. I LOVE IT !!!

Smells like black pepper !

It's a great fragrance...a bit of floral mixed with woodsy undertones. I am not much of a floral girl, but my husband loves them, so....It isn't too strong, and it sits softly afterward.

As soon as I sprayed this, I had a headache. It is heavy and artificial smelling. And it does not go away-- even after two showers. YIKES! Stay away from this if you want to smell original. If you want to smell like a mall walker or a teenage girl who doesn't know what a quality scent is, then this monstrosity is for you. I'll stick with expensive florals like Fracas. Heck, my hand soap smells better. Now if only I could get this scent out of my house!

I really wanted to like this more...in fact, this smells much nicer on my skin than on paper. However, I think I've had some problems with Avon scents in general. They seem to have this green/pepper note that doesn't agree with me. I smell a touch of peach and a touch of tea on first spray, but the green and pepper note lingers and bothers me.

'In bloom' is a nice day-time scent that's safe and easy to wear around people. It's not very unique if that's what your looking for. To me, it smells a bit like peach iced tea? It's a little sweet at the opening, but as it mellows out on my skin, the sweet and floral notes combine and produces a very elegant scent. This fragrance is very delicate and soft - not "in-your-face" sweet or sharp like some perfumes can be. I was surprised to see gardenia listed as one of the notes since I usually hate it, but the way it's combined makes it smell lovely and not "heavy" like it usually does for me. The dry-down is a little musky, but heavier on the sandalwood.

The smell is ok, a little over powering for me, when I first put it on, and then it really didn't last..... but the bottle is pretty. I got it as a gift, but I wouldn't spend the money to purchase another bottle.

This smells SO fantastic!! Unfortunately, it only smells fantastic for about an hour at best, which is why I gave it a 3. I really love this fragrance, but I've gone through a bottle in record time! I asked DH if he could smell it after I'd practically doused myself in it a few hours before (thought maybe I'd developed an inability to smell it ;)...he said he couldn't unless he really smashed his nose onto my neck (not a problem for me ;) and that's after he had commented on how good it smelled a couple of times before when I first put it on. I don't really want to do the layering because I have body washes and lotions I already love, but if that's the only way to get this fragrance to hang around.... ?? Really nice and clean scent for summer--if it were cheaper I'd just buy a big bottle and let it rip! :)

Wow I love this floral I love the peach notes

Not a bad light floral scent but has no staying power. Comes in a very pretty glass bottle though.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I wanted to love this because I like Avon fragrances most of the time, but this is just way too flowery -- like cheap old lady perfume of the 70's.

I have been ordering samples of this fragrance ever since it first come out because the price is rather high IMO. for the amount that is in the bottle. I finally ordered the limited edition glass 1 oz. bottle as it went on sale at long last. I do love this scent, and the glass bottle with the lovely glass flower on the top is adorable, a real nice piece to add to my bottle collection. I have discovered however that the glass bottle with the glass flower does not have a sprayer, and I do not believe the top fits tight enough to prevent evaporation. I say this because my bottle came not all the way full and it was enclosed in a plastic wrapper. The box smelled a little like the fragrance so I thought perhaps it could have leaked out in the shipping process. I told Avon about this and they are sending me a new bottle. I will update this when I see if the new bottle is also missing some of the perfume, or if it smells like it leaked out. This may be an impossible thing to stop if the lid does not fit appropriately for shipping purposes, or tight enough to prevent evaporation. I am marking the bottle I have to see if it indeed is evaporation and if it is then I am going to empty the contents into another perfume bottle that does not allow for evaporation.
This perfume is just too beautiful of a fragrance to allow to waste. It is not a strong perfume and I feel as though it does not last as long as I would like it to, but since I find it very delightful, I can tolerate less lasting power and respray. ;-)
If I do find the new bottle to have less product than there should be, I am thinking of ordering the spray bottle. It has more product, is not as beautiful of a container, but perhaps it will arrive full and not be able to evaporate.
If you love flowers like I do, you will love this fragrance. It is not an over-powering flower scent but it is definitely a special fragrance.

I have sniffed just about all the Avon scents and there are
alot of them! This is definitely my favourite but it really does not last on its own. Layering has worked for me. I use
the shower gel and the body lotion. Add a squirt of the scent
and it seems to last longer as it works with the body lotion.
It is very floral and really lifts my mood.
You have to smell it and try it on your own skin to make a
decent assessment. Scent is so personal to everyone.

Unlike others, I CAN smell the peach tea as well as the gardenia - this is a nice scent! It's just a pity it doesn't last at all. I cannot smell it even 5 minutes after spraying it all over my body, clothes, hair etc.. A complete waste of money.

I bought the body mist version for $15 and I use it often. I love the scent. Get a sample of it before you buy it since scent is subjective.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Black
Very light gardenia scent, poor lasting power. If in fact you want something classier and fresher that smells of these white flowers try Marc Jacobs. This in fact is the case of you get what you pay for. Works great though as a daytime after bath spray.

This scent is fantastic, but it depends on what you like. I love florals, so this is great for me. Very fresh, lasts long. Good for day to night transitions! Will buy again and again. I like the EDP so much, I later ordered the shower gel, lotion and body mist.

I LOVE this fragrance, that being said I don't think anyone should buy a fragrance based on someone else's review, because everyone has their own particular likes and dislikes. So, I will try to just describe the actual product:
I would describe the scent as fresh and floral. The top notes (for me) is a very very feminine white flower/ powder smell. The powder is minimal, just barely there- in the top notes. For the heart I really smell Gardenia's, light tea, and a 'fresh' smell. It's scentually monochromatic, but surprisingly each note compliments the other very nicely! I do love this perfume, it's light and a bit more youthful then scents like Rare gold. (imo).
Its hard to say how long the scent lasts because at the moment I have a spray tan on, which interferes with the fragrance, but it seems to last quite a while. Not as long as some heavier perfumes I have used- like Jean Paul, but if you spray your body after a shower and then your clothes before you leave, you will probably smell it all day.
