Although I love the scent of roses, I have found that rose fragrances often disappoint. Not this one! It has a lovely bloom blends with patchouli and an hint of spice. I would wear this in any season and for any reason.

Since the review, I have found that this fragrance could be improved with more staying power. Even with the shower gel and lotion, it still does not last long, compared to Avon's Prima Noir, which stays very well. Not sure I would change the 5 lippies rating, though. Still is lovely.

This has been compared to Gucci Guilty Absolute for women--this is nothing like Gucci Guilty Absolute, so please don't buy it thinking you'll be getting a cheaper dupe--you won't. What this is though is a gorgeous sweet rose, fig and patchouli fragrance that is smooth and very niche-like. The only pomegranate is a little hint of tartness in the very beginning, the rose quickly overtakes that and blends with the fig for a sweet earthy warm experience. The musk is a soft undercurrent pinning the whole thing, and the patchouli definitely gives it that velvet texture that makes the name very appropriate. The bottle is heavy and classy, with a velvet collar---definitely a new niche direction for Avon. This is a sweeter, lighter cousin to Midnight Poison with the rose and patchouli dancing so nicely together. It's got decent sillage but not a super heavy hitter with only 2 sprays--more sprays would definitely make it stronger. Longevity is about 5-6 hours. Very inexpensive and well worth the money. Perfect for Fall/Winter--although I could see this blooming in the spring and cooler summer days as well.
