      Guys like it, but younger people may not,

      This is one of those perfumes that you'll either love or hate - me, I LOVE IT! It is just a very delicate feminine smell - but one of my mates says it smells "old lady like" in the manner of old pearls, lavender and lace! I love everything about this parfum - it is a romantic scent, very uplifting, makes me feel very happy. Just gives me that feeling.
      The basic scent is a floral mix, quite heady with almost a sandlewood undertone, but whereas it starts out pretty strong, it fades into a nice soft clean feminine smell. It probably won't appeal much to the teens and twenties, simply becasue of the "old lady" connotation to perfumes of this sort. Well, at 46, I guess I AM an old lady!

      I have the whole range - talc, shower gel, lotion - the works. It is wonderful to lie in the bath with this scent surrounding you, lights off and lit only by candlelight, soft music playing, and imagine yourself very far away. Guys do like this too - I get loads of compliments that I alwasy smell so good and from all ages even the younger guys that I work with!

      I've been using the Far Away range for five years now. If you are like me and want a flowery sweet fragranced perfume than this is one for you. The first time I used this product I thought I would get some cheap, irritating perfume that would probably cause a skin reaction but I got a good quality, long lasting, sweet smelling mist of fragrance which isn't too overpowering and not too subtle. If your'e looking for a perfume to create a good impression but don't want to go over the top then opt for this. It's not as expensive as some of the high street brands but it's good quality though, it will last throughout your day with no problem. So if you need a confidence boost for a job interview or date try this, you won't have to worry about coming on too strong, you'll just have to worry about your high confidence levels.

        Disadvantages

        Before my Lush addiction, I had Avon. I still love Avon, but that’s more likely to be Paul Darrow in Blake’s Seven these days than the little shiny catalogue that gets popped through your letterbox once a month. You see, when my Avon addiction started, I had virtually no make-up and now my little blue bag is full. I mean, how many lipsticks, eyeliners and mascaras can one woman need? So I moved on to the toiletry range and had a recent splurge on shower gels, shaving oils and the like. In fact, my last order was all this sort of thing – except for one item I couldn’t resist…. The Far Away Fragrance Stylo…. I like little things – tiny books, small cuddly toys and so on. I think they are cute. I also like classy looking items of make up and something a bit different. So when I saw a perfume disguised in a pen-like design, it appealed to me on two levels. I’m not a big fan of perfume really, I usually wear it maybe once a month. Those big bottles are quite impractical to carry around with you too, but there are times when you are out shopping and get all hot and sweaty, when a little dash of perfume would be ideal. A fragranced stylo is great for this. Avon seems to have the reputation of being for old women, selling boring old traditional make up and lavender scented smellies. It’s not like that. My eleven-year-old daughter is a big Avon fan and I’m only 32. If you saw one of these fragranced stylo, you would think they were expensive and from a really posh company with an exclusive brand name and price tag to match. The Fragrance Stylos from Avon come in four different varieties – Perceive (described as ‘floral, sensual and uplifting’), Dolce Aura (‘sparkling citrus and flowers’), Little Black Dress (‘sparkling floriental’) and Far Away (‘tantalising exotic blooms’). I had previously been given littl
        e samples of the first three, so thought I would give Far Away a try. The Fragrance Stylo is about four inches long and looks like a lipstick or eyeliner from the outside – or a rather thick cigarette! It is a pearlescent white coloured tube with a gold band round the middle. It really does look classy and would make a lovely present. You twist slightly and pull to remove the top. Personally, I would prefer one that comes off gently by turning, but that’s only a small complaint. When the top is off, this reveals a shiny white stick, which you twist up like a lipstick. It has a soft, creamy texture to it and is a solid but smooth consistency. There isn’t much of the stick, maybe an inch and a half or so. But as you use only a tiny amount each time, this should still last for a good long while. You apply it to your wrists and neck and it leaves you smelling of the scent, although not as strongly as if you had a bottle of the stuff. It’s a pretty scent too, quite light and girlie, sort of pink and flowery. It does have slight woody and oriental smell about it, but not too much. I really like it and think it’s just me! Of course, scents are an individual choice and not everyone will like the same one, so best thing to do is ask your Avon rep for a few samples to try out first. If you are a fan of this particular scent, Avon does a range of matching products, which I will describe below. You can buy a Bath and Massage Oil in the Far Away scent. This costs £4 for a 125ml bottle and the Far Away one is a light pink colour. The Skin Softener costs £3 (£2 at the moment) for 150ml, the Perfumed Body Spray costs £3 (£2 now) for 75ml, the Perfumed Talc costs £2.25 normally (£1.50 now) for 75g and there is a Moisturising Bath and Shower Gel for £3 usually (£2 currently) for 200ml. These all feature the pink and black Far Away logo in their design. There is a Glitterati version
        of the perfume at £8 for 30ml – this is a perfume with shimmer highlights in it to leave your skin looking sparkly. This is a pretty bottle – again predominantly pink – with a pink and black sphere on the top and a black tassel. The Eau de Parfum spray is also available in Far Away, costing £10 for 50ml. It has the same pink and black top as the Glitterati version, but the bottle is frosted and clear. If you want something smaller, there is a Far Away Eau de Parfum purse spray for £5 (15ml) and the main focus of this opinion – the Far Away Fragrance Stylo which is only £2 at the moment as an introductory offer, but it will be £4 in the future. I love my Fragrance Stylo and enjoy smelling all ‘tantalisingly exotic’! I hope you do too. Highly recommended.

          Far Away Fantasy is an Avon perfume that has been around now for about five years and yet it remains very popular with customers. It is ideal for women aged between twenty-five to mid forties, I think, but you need to judge for yourself. Your local Avon representative will be able to supply a sample bottle of this eau de parfum, so try it out before you commit to buying Far Away Fantasy. It is an elegant eau de parfum spray, which burst with a zesty fragrance of caramel and peaches. It is sweet and exotic with a musky air but is not overly sickly or heavy either. It is a lovely smell and great value for money as one-application lasts all evening. It has a distinctive personality of its own, reminding me of winter and all the rich and exotic foods that are part and parcel at that time of the year. In some ways it is dreamy and very romantic, ideal for that special evening out. Far Away Fantasy has an attractive yet understated elegant packaging. It comes in a French blue and black box with a gold tassel motif. The Perfume comes in a 50mls frosted glass bottle with a blue push on lid and black tassel. This black tassel can get in the way when applying the perfume, but does look elegant sitting on the dressing table. **Cost** £10.00 for a 50mls bottle. **Collection** Moisturising Bath and Shower Gel £3.00 for200mls Perfumed Talc £2.25 for 75mls Skin Softener £3.00 for 150mls Perfumed Body Spray for £3.00 for 75mls This eau de parfum is often on special offer so you may be able to obtain it for a cheaper price or recieve a free gift with its purchase. So with Christmas fast approaching Far Away Fantasy elegant eau de parfum spray and body collection could make a lovely gift for a distant Aunt without braking the bank. Oh yes, remember if you or the recipient of this gift do not like it for what ever reason there is the Avon 100% money back guarantee.

            Disadvantages

            I used to sell AVON to family and friends to esrn an extra bit of pocket money when I was at school, and this is when I first came across Far Away Fantasy. At the launch, all of the AVON reps were given free samples, and after trying the sample, I decided to purchase a larger bottle. Now I must admit that even though I sold AVON, I myself wasn't too keen on the stuff - it was cheap, and you could usually see why! However, I must admit that I was pleasently surprised. The packaging is attractive and very original, making it ideal as a gift. The bottle comes in a blue box, embossed with gold, making it look quite classy, and the bottle top comes adorned with this strange little feathery thing, that is also actually quite attractive. The thing that first struck me was that the perfume was so strong that I could actually smell it before I opened the box. I discovered that the perfume was extra strong as it was an eau de parfum as opposed to an eau de toillette. The scent itself is quite hard to describe - it is mostly musky, and it is sweet without being sickly. It strikes you as being a very summery smelling scent, but it isn't floral. With the perfume being so strong, I would advise that it is probably more a perfume to wear in the evening than during the day, as it would be a little too heavy for wearing to work, say. I was surprised to find that the perfume lasted all day, and I could even smell it on my clothes the next morning! The best thing that I have found about this perfume though, is that even though it was cheap (only £9.99 for a 50ml size, compared to £20 - £30 for other designer perfumes), you couldn't tell, as it looks and smells like a more upmarket product. One bottle also seems to last a long time, as you really don't need to use very much at a time. The other good thing about the product being from AVON is that the product is delivered straight to your do
            or, so you don't need to trapse around shops to look for it. This advantage though also brings with it a couple of disadvantages. One is that you'll be hard pushed to get it if you don't have an AVON lady in your area or know someone who does. The second is that AVON ladies don't tend to carry a full range of free samples around with them anymore, so you might not be able to try before you buy, because I always found that the scented pages in the AVON catalogue all smelled the same! All in all though,problems aside, I would recommend this product to my friends, and to anyone else for that matter, although I think that this product would suit young women most.
