I have all three of trilogy fragrances and I like this one best. The other two are not bad either. In fact, it is nice to have all three because they are all different and you pick one to spray on depending on your mood, season, occasion etc. I like Tomorrow best because it's deeper than the other two and it last long time. This is a warm scent so it works better in Fall to Winter. (I would say Today is for Spring and Always for Summer.) This frag smells a bit sweet reminding me of Amaretto-kind of liquor, but I don't feel this is a frag for younger people but more for mature women. I like to spray it on me at night so that I feel calm and sleep well.
Oriental floral. Woodsy rose. Not girly. Rose with a kick. I wear this for both work and after five. Very nice, but it smells same from the beginning through the end.
I like it. It's vanilla but sophisticated, not sticky or sultry. I wear this for both work and after five. I was thinking to get the original "The One" but actually I find this may be more of "me" than the original because this is not heavy vanilla. This is softer, a little bit of sweetness with musky base note. Beautiful.
I have to claim myself a Gucci addict. I LOVE Gucci fragrances. Everything I purchased so far works very well with my body chemistry. I like Gucci's in general because they have more of green, woodsy, spicy and/or musky note, and are very complex rather than monotone feminine "pretty" floral. (Well, probably you guessed I don't have "Flora" on my dresser and you guessed right. I sniffed it at a store and I thought it was beautiful though.) With that said, Envy Me 2 is a beautiful fresh green spicy fragrance suitable for both office and casual.
Gels/Soaps -Desert Essence - desert essence castile liquid soap

I love this soap. I use this mainly as a hand soap, but some times use as a dishing soap, body, even as a facial. On a regular basis, I use Desert Essence facial cleanser with tea tree oil, which I also love, but when I'm out of my regular facial cleanser or my face feels greasier than usual, I use this soap on my face. This soap has been very effective when I had an insect bites or was exposed to poison ivy oil. Washing the affected area thoroughly with this soap, followed by a treatment with a cotton ball with diluted tea tree essencial oil, relieves itchy feeling right away and definitely helps healing process quicker. It foams very well in a foaming dispenser, but it clogs easily if you don't use the dispenser for a while. Some people may not like the smell of this soap but I don't mind it at all. To me it's refreshing and invigorating. I have been replaced cleansers/soaps contain a lot of harmful chemicals with the products contain tea tree oil or other natural antiseptic ingredients around the house. I'm very please with this soap and will continue using this.
Fragrances -Givenchy - Very Irresistible L'intense

It was a blind buy. I bought this because I like plum in fragrance. It starts with floral, then plum starts to kick in, which I really like. The longevity is pretty good, I would say it lasts on me for 8hrs or more. In this sense, this is "intense" but I don't think the scent itself is so intense. I wouldn't say this is "soft" category but very feminine and beautiful.
Very nice. I probably tested original Far Away, but I don't quite remember how it was like. That means it was not very impressive. The theme of Far Away series seems to be oriental as the bottle caps have "Ying Yang" design. I think Far Away Sensual Embrace is the most "oriental" scent among Far Away series as far as I tried so far. I can smell vanilla after dry down but it's not sticky but it is very sophisticated. It is powdery but not like detergent or room fragrance. I wear this frag for office as well as evening. This is a very good allround frag. I think this is one of the best among Avon frags.
This frag smells sooooo goooood. In general, I don't wear feminine rosy floral scent. I prefer green note, white floral, oriental, or even spicy men's fragrance. (See my other reviews.) But this one smells sooooo goooood. Yes, this is rose one, soft and more floral than the original. This can be worn by younger ladies to mature women, casual occasion to office or even formal evening events. I'm glad to know and own this multipurpose fragrance. I just wish this has more lasting power. I need to spray on me every four hours or so. Also it is a kind monotone from the beginning to the end. That's why I gave 4 out of 5. But I love, love, love. Just soooo smells goood. This makes me feel calm. My new favorite bed time frag.
I love Gucci frags in general, and this is one of the frags I always want to have in my hubby's, or my own, closet. What can go wrong with this one? Some ladies here write they wear this frag although this is a men's frag. I agree, I think this can be worn by women. I bought this frag for my hubby and I have Envy for women too, but I occasionally wear this one myself, not for daytime or office occasion but in the evening when I want to feel relaxed and a little sexy. I think this is a classy frag, but when a woman wear it I think it makes her sexy, although she can be smell like an old woman if it goes wrong. This is definitely men's version of Envy, green, spicy and a little sweet. Anyway, it smells SOOO GOOOD!
I would describe this fragrance soft, feminine, floral and fresh to wear in spring to early summer. It is a very pleasant smell, but I have to say it's so generic and boring. I didn't find anything unique or memorable from this fragrance. I tried a tester at a store and could not tell the difference from something else I tried a couple of days before that, I think that was Halle Berry's Reveal. Anyway, it:s not worth for me to buy.
Divine. If I describe this frag in one word, this is it. It is hard to describe the complexity of this perfume, it has some sweetness of vanilla, jasmine like white floral, herbal and spicy kick and boldness. Just a little sniff, you can tell It is very deep and rich. Just looking at the dark amber color in the gorgeous heavy glass bottle makes me feel special and handling very precious liquid. I haven't been out wearing this frag yet, just because I haven't gotten an appropriate opportunity to go out wearing this bold and seductive frag. I have been wearing at home after a long day of work instead. It creates my mood for the evening. Quite often I spray this perfume on me when I go to bed. I sleep like a queen every time.
I like how this frag smells. It's a mature fruity floral scent, not a pink girlie kind of smell. In fact, I find it quite lovely. I like the combination of plum, orchid, vanilla and musk. Kinda makes me feel being mysterious. Strong opening but wish to have more lasting power. Only lasted for about 30 minutes on me. I gave 3 out of 5 for that reason.
I love this frag on my hubby. Probably, smells even better in a cold weather. It smells spicy yet sweet at the same time. That should be coming from the combination of patchouli and vanilla, but It is spicier than just patchouli. It has some vetiver in it but I personally don't know how vetiver smells like so I can't tell if it is making this frag spicier. Again, it's sweet but is definitely masculine, and more for intimate, after dark occasions. I smell some incense or maybe some leather. I don't remember how original Obsession for men smells like, although my hubby had a bottle a couple years back, so I can't compare this one to the original one. I even think this frag may be similar to the original Obsession for women. I will try this on myself and see if it works or not. I gave 4 out of 5 for a lack of longevity. 5/14/2011 I tried this on me and I LOVE IT. I like more masculine smell than feminine in general, and I was looking for men's fragrance for me to wear. This works perfectly with my body chemistry. I like using this at night before going to bed. This makes me feel calm and I fall in sleep peacefully. I changed the rating from 4 to 5!
My first love of fragrance. I was not particularly into fragrances until very recently. I remember when I was younger, even at my college age, I could not walk through department stores without covering my nose or holding my breath. I was overwhelmed with strong perfume smells. At my late 20s, as I was reaching more mature adulthood, I wanted some fragrances to wear for formal occasions. When I was traveling overseas, I sniffed Eternity at a duty free store. I picked this fragrance among many others just because my name in my language associated with eternity. And immediately I FELL IN LOVE with it. It is a very sophisticated green and white floral fragrance. Only knowing more heavy duty classic fragrances which gave me headaches and almost made me pass out, like Chanel and Guerlain, Eternity was a pleasant surprise and an eye opening for me. It totally changed my suffocating images of perfumes. Later I saw Christy Turlington in Eternity ads. What a perfect model for this fragrance. A natural classy beauty icon. I still don't wear fragrances on a daily bases, but I've been using Eternity time to time and whenever using it it doesn't turn me down. I wore this for my wedding as well as for all my friends' weddings. It makes me feel classy, sophisticated, confident, alluring and expresses my presence. This is my "makes me feel so good!" fragrance. It lasts very long time too. I started collecting fragrances and found some work very nice on me, but Eternity is still my special fragrance. I will keep wearing it for special occasions.
I was looking for a fragrance to wear for daily casual and also appropriate for office. After reading good reviews on this frag I decided to give it a try. It is a nice unoffensive pleasant citrus floral smell, but too soft and naive for me. I spritzed 3 or 4 sprays but it faded away immediately, maybe lasted for about 30 min. I waited hoping something happens when it dries down, but nothing happened. Honestly, I was very disappointed. It is not a bad smell, so I would give 2.5 out of 5, but it's not particularly remarkable and has no characteristics to speak to me. Very safe. It reminded me of Lucky You, but a lot more timid. This would be appropriate for young casual people to wear to go to school.
