Advantages: Lovely new perfume - buy on offer if you can.
----New Fragrance Launched in 2012----
---Why I Buy This---
I have known the original Far Away fragrance since its launch in 1994 but I always found it too heavy and sickly for my liking so I never bought it, but obviously lots of people must have liked it for Avon to keep selling it for so long.
Because I was not keen on Far Away I never bothered to try the next three versions - Dreams, Paradise or Fantasy.
However I had been given a sample of this new Far Away Exotic fragrance and really took to it and so bought the full sized version.
According to Avon - 'An inspiring journey of chai spice and lavish saffron rose entwined with the exotic richness of ambered musk'.
Fragrantica.com states that it 'combines notes of mango, spiced chai and mandarin with the heart of saffron rose, coconut milk and jasmine and the base of patchouli, amber, musk and sandalwood'.
This fragrance comes in a 50 ml bottle.
All Far Away fragrances come in the same style bottle.
The bottle is round from the front but narrow if looked at sideways. The glass is slightly frosted and has a wavy line across the centre.
The cap is in the shape of a ball and divided into two colours by a wavy dividing line - the top section being very deep purple and the bottom part a sort of peach colour.
Another trade mark of Far Away perfumes is the tassel around the neck of the bottle - this one is deep purple.
The perfume comes in a dark purple box with dark Arabian style patterns.
Made in Poland and contains alcohol.
Full price is £13 for 50 mls - but has been on sale recently for £10 with a free scarf.
As I said before Far Away original was never a favourite of mine, so if I had not tried the sample of this perfume I don't think I would ever have considered buying it.
However I really like the warm fragrance which is very long lasting. It smells warm and spicy, but not in a sickly way, and I do not think this would be too heavy for summer either.
There are faint notes that remind me of the original Far Away - but only slightly, and not in a bad way.
It is possibly the sandalwood and mandarin that I like, though everything is combined and it is difficult to pick out one item from the mix of aromas.
Many of the elements in this perfume are also listed for the original Far Away - so it just proves that a few changes can make all the difference and that you can never really tell which perfume you will like unless you actually try it.
I think this perfume will be another hit for Avon as both my friend and a neighbour have ordered this perfume after trying samples as well - so its a winner.
---Would I Recommend?---
Summary: Great spicy new perfume from Avon - worth a try.
