I bought this in a mark 3-pack along with the Ibiza Sol and Costa Rica variations. Those two smelled great on my skin; this one - OMG, like industrial-strength cleaner, the kind they use in schools and gymnasiums! Sour, acidic, and headache-inducingly chemical - I couldn't scrub it off my skin fast enough.

What a pretty fragrance this is! An Instant Vacation indeed. My friend gave me this for my birthday in January and Ive been using it here and there ever since. It was just as nice to wear during the winter months as it is in the summer. Its great to have for a perk up on a cold winter day.

I learnt an important lesson after purchasing this fragrance. Never buy something that you haven't tested based on the reviews. I read the reviews on MUA and thought that this sounded perfect for me. So I ordered through ebay and eagerly anticipated the arrival of this fragrance. Unfortunately this was not what I expected and gave me an instant headache (which perhaps would be a better name for this product). It is sweet smelling, with hints of coconut and suntan oil. Sounds nice in theory, but it makes me feel ill if I spray this anywhere near me!

I love this perfume. I got it for 6.99 I believe it might be a few bucks more though (it was in the Putlet catalog of my moms avon and thats how I aquired it) and a perfume for under 20 bucks usually is not so good but this one is amazing, it smells so much more expensive it is. No headache inducing cheap smelling crap here. I smelled a lot of jasmine, coconut, suntan lotion and maybe a little musk and other fruity tropical notes in this. For me its a summer only scent but I will wear it anywhere / everywhere in the summer. As it dries down it smells a little leass heavy, as far as thejasmine is concerned, jasmine always smelled too heavy to me at first so I consider this a good thing. My boyfriend really liked the smell too. My only complaint is it fades really fast. But otherwise I really, really like this.

i love this perfume for the summer, especially right before going to the beach. it is a very beachy scent. it conveys the smells of the perfect beach day; coconuts, the beach & the sand, the ocean & suntan lotion.
if those kind of scents float your boat, you'll definitely enjoy this.
besides that though, i'd never wear this for any other occasion than going to the beach.

I love this perfume! I love how when you first spray it, it smells very fruity and tropical. The packaging isn't too bad but I love the shape and packaging of the bottle. The smell to me is very exotic with notes of mango, orange flower and a hint of a musk. Love it!

Although I didn't immediately like this as much as I expected, it is growing on me. Not to mention that I've had a few compliments which is always nice. It is kind of spicy coconuty smelling and the spiciness makes it wearable as a winter fragrance for me as well as summer. As with all of the Mark fragrances, not too strong and doesn't last indefinetly but as I've said in other reviews, I actually like that quality. Absolutely worth trying for the price.

I neither love nor hate this perfume. It didn't give me a headache which was a huge plus--most perfumes do. However, I detected a bit too much of a pineapple note in this to really enjoy it. I was hoping for something that smelled a bit more coconut/suntan oil scent. You know that scent that immediately brings you back to the sun baked summers when melanoma wasn't a common word. I used this for about a month...then stopped. There are more enticing perfumes out there, but this is nice and isn't too expensive

This is usually my summer fragrance. It has a coconut smell to it which I love, it just makes me feel like I am down at the beach all summer long :-)

This smells so nice and tropical. Not in a floral way but with coconut, musk, and a hint of fruit. It's really a treat to wear. It would be nice if they had a skin cream to go with it for layering purposes.

This perfume smells great, but it fades off by the end of the day. It reminds me of Bobbi Brown Beach, at a fraction of the price.

I was really excited about this scent when it first came out about a few years ago. The scent on me was a nice coco nutty scent I liked at first but towards the end of the day it was more musky on me and not in a good way.

Rating: I put it on at a locker break and my old friend came up to me waving at me, she's like awwww I love that smell! What is it! Very nice smell, and with every scent, hard to describe, good for summer!
Price: $20 not bad
Packaging: Love the design! It always falling over though, but it never breaks
I'll buy it again!

Great rendition of this type of scent. Smells almost identical to, the now discontinued, Estee Lauder's Azuree Soleil but at a fraction of the cost. I hope Avon decides to keep this product in its seasonal line of fragrances. Will definitely repurchase.

This is a fun scent on warm summer days. I bought a bottle two years ago and still have half left... I like it but not all the time. Nice coconut smell!

I have the regular Instant Vacation from last year, which I like on hot, summery days. However, when I smell Instant Vacation Greek Isles on the scented pages, I can almost retch!

I recently received this as a sample and had to buy the full-sized bottle. I like the coconut smell to it, but it reminds me of another fragrance I can't quite put my finger on...still a very fun scent for the beach.

i love instant vacation! smells like yummy suntan lotion and coconuts on me. i can't wait to wear this once it gets warm out!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
It smelled like an intriguing suntan lotion on everyone else. It smelled like bugspray on me.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
I love this seasonal perfume. It smells like the good kind of sunscreen - a little bit coconutty but with something else that I just don't know how to describe.
The only thing I don't like is that it's only sold in the summer!
