Avon

Avon was strictly an American phenomenon, and a unique and pioneering one at that. The first Avon Lady was actually a man, young door-to-door salesman David McConnell from upstate New York. He launched Avon Calling in 1886, offering women cosmetics in the comfort and privacy of their own homes. By 1887, McConnell had twelve women employees selling a line of eighteen fragrances. And the numbers kept growing and growing. In 1939, California Perfume Company name changed to Avon Products, Inc. (10/6/39.) Today, despite the scores of expensive, prestigious American and foreign brand-name cosmetics, Avon ranks first in sales nationwide, with Avon Ladies ringing doorbells from coast to coast.

Eva Mendes - Eve Confidence Eau de Parfum

Eve Confidence is one of four fragrances in the Eve Discovery collection of perfumes, that has been created with actress Eva Mendes. I can't separate all of the fruity notes used in here; they're all mingled together very closely. If I had to guess, I'd suggest that there is raspberry and/or strawberry underneath the watery pear and milky cream notes. There are also just enough fresh & juicy currant-type scent notes present to stop the sweeter fruits from becoming too overbearing. The listed jasmine and frangipani are by far the strongest floral notes on me, and I'd also guess that there is some combination of clean and powdery florals such as neroli, lotus and/or heliotrope too. Sometimes I can pick up on the airy musk note, but other times the note is too quiet and is hidden by the florals. The shift into the base is subtle; a vanilla-infused sandalwood note develops after 3-4 hours, and mingles with the lingering cream-dipped fruity notes as the perfume gradually dries down. Overall; the light, airy scent is perfect for the warmer weather, although I’ll wear mine all year round. Eve Confidence is a lovely daytime fragrance, that’s only let down by its poor staying power [a common theme with Avon perfumes]. However as the price is so low, I don't mind having to reapply it every five hours or so. Official scent notes: whipped cream, frangipani, pear, red fruits, black currant, jasmine, vanilla, woody notes and musk. True; Eve Confidence isn't very original, but it's neither 'young' or 'old', and is non-cloying, so it is a easy to wear and is a fantastic buy for those who enjoy quieter, more feminine perfumes. Avon UK recently released 100ml bottles of their top three best-selling perfumes and Eve Confidence is one of them.

Eva Mendes - Eve Truth edp

Eve Truth is one of four fragrances in the Eve Discovery collection of perfumes, that has been created with actress Eva Mendes. This entry into the line surprised me with its lightness. I was expecting something stronger & sweeter, having read the fruit-lead scent notes before hand. The fragrance is invigoratingly fresh and dewy, with a sharper drydown; The top and heart of Eve Truth blends seamlessly in a mild mix of berries, pomegranate, peony & hint of vanilla on me, before sharpening into a base of gardenia and cedar. I can’t separate the other floral notes that have been used, but the impression of 'green & watery' created by the combination stops the fruit notes from being sickly sweet. Overall the light, airy scent is perfect for the warmer weather, although I’ll wear mine all year round. Eve Truth is a lovely daytime fragrance, that’s only let down by its poor staying power. However as the price is so low, I don't mind having to reapply it every five hours or so. Official scent notes: black currant, cassis, carambola (star fruit), pomegranate, pink freesia, peony, gardenia, cedar, musk and amber. In my small vintage Avon fragrance collection I have a little known 60s/70s cologne called First Flowers and Eve Truth is almost identical to it - I was very excited when I realized that one of my vintage favourites was basically rereleased. I personally believe that Marc Jacobs took inspiration from First Flowers for his Daisy perfume, as Daisy smells extremely similar to First Flowers/Eve Truth.
