Avon Far Away Exotic Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Nice - when its on offer
Disadvantages: a little overpowering and cheap looking
One of my closest friends recently became an Avon representative and every time there is a great deal on something she lets me know about it. I collect perfume, not intentionally but I seem to have quite a collection on my table. Recently she text me to let me know about the Far away exotic perfume offer. The perfume was on sale for £10 a bottle which is about what I usually spend on an everyday perfume but it also came with a free scarf. After having a quick look on the Avon website I decided that the scarf had sealed the deal and I brought it.
The scarf is lovely a nice big bright colourful addition to my wardrobe. I am not sure how you can link a scarf and perfume together but I am not going to split hairs about a free gift. I ordered my perfume the usually way, filled in my Avon order form passed it onto my Avon rep and waited nearly 2 weeks for my item. She then dropped it off at my house; completely hassle free for a woman with a young baby to care for.
===The Perfume appearance ====
The perfume comes in a beautiful purple box with a lovely patterned design on the side. I am not usually one to keep the boxes my perfumes come in but this box is rather pretty and unfortunately I prefer it to the perfume bottle so it is staying in the box out of site.
Now I was a little disappointed with the bottle, its just not what I expected considering what I paid for it. I have paid less for perfume and it has come in more attractive bottles. The glass part of the bottle is quite thick and a round shape, this is not the issue. The part I dislike most is the lid. It is a horrible plastic that is purple and orange in colour. I feel It looks cheap and lowers how much I like the product ever so slightly. The bottle also has a purple tassel around the neck. I assume this is to add the exotic look to the perfume for its names sake.
=====The perfume scent=====
The smell of the perfume once applied is a little strong you need to give it a few minutes to absorb into the skin and mellow. One spray of the bottle gives enough perfume to cover both wrists and probably your neck as well. Spraying again onto your neck may create an over powering aroma of perfume half chocking you in the process.
Once the perfume has mellowed the smell is quite pleasant. It is not a perfume that I would usually go for as I have firm favourites but it is a nice change to my usually batch of fruity perfumes. The perfume smells musky with a hint of rose and spice to it. I tend to wear this perfume about once a week and the bottle is lasting me quite a while which is a bonus.
I don't think that I will buy this perfume again; it just isn't really a scent that I would usually go for. However for the price and the free gift that I received I would say it was worth the money. The perfume usually retails at £15 I really would not recommend paying this much for the perfume, I would keep an eye on the Avon website and only purchase when It is on offer. The bottle is a nice size but the lid ruins its appearance which is a real shame as it could of looked lovely along with my other perfumes. All in all I would give the perfume 3-4 stars, a nice perfume but its just not my type of scent.
