I had tried the other Liiv Botanicals Perfume and although it wasn't my most favourite scent ever it was a nice scent, so when I saw this on offer in an Avon sale book for a bargain price of £3.50 for the 50ml bottle then I decided it was worth a try. The normal price for this is £10 and i'm not sure if it is still available in the main Avon book but it has appeared in the sale book now and again.
The bottle of this looks like the Dooyoo picture. It is quite a long and sort of thin bottle. It is mostly frosted in colour but there is a part which kind of is in the shape of a leaf and that is a clear patch of glass. So you can easily see how much of this you have used. The lid is alright as well and fits flush against the bottle. It feels quite a heavy bottle so perhaps the glass is pretty thick.
So how does this smell? It is a mixture of heavier scents with a few airy light ones mixed through. The main notes in here are Jasmine and Water Lily with a dash of Vanilla through this as well. So the Jasmine is probably the main scent which is a nice rich and Sensual scent, the Vanilla gives that added bit sweetness and the Water Lily is the light sparkling scent that seems to lift the heavy scent up a bit. After spraying this in the morning I found that just 2 squirts of this on each wrist gave a strong enough scent and that was enough for me although I usually spray 3 squirts on with Perfume. You can obviously spray more of this to get a stronger scent, but 2 is fine for me. I could still smell this faintly hours later so it has good lastability.
I am nearly finished this bottle and I would consider buying it again. It will never be my favourite scent, but it is a nice and natural scent which I would recommend you try especially if you can get it on such a good offer.
Liiv Bontanicals Sensuality is an Eau de Toilette fragrnace by Avon, which I was was bought as part of a present for Mother's Day. I'd already said I'd like to try this, so it was a nice surprise to get a bottle of this as a gift.
A 50ml bottle of Avon's Liiv Botanicals: Sensuality usually costs around £12 from an Avon rep / catalogue or the Avon website, but you might be able to get a bottle for up to half price if you keep an eye out for deals at Avon, or on sites like eBay.
The Liiv Botanicals: Sensuality bottle is comes in a tall, relatively plain and simple looking semi-frosted glass bottle, which is attractive and clean. There's a clear glass leaf motif on one side of the bottle, which gives the impression of this being a more natural fragrance (like the others in the Liiv Botanicals range). The bottle is nice enough looking, there's nothing to offend about it and it sits in the hand well when I use it.
This is a very fresh and revitalising scent, and on first spray it's quite powerful, with a top note of water lily. This does have a nice white floral scent to it that's sweet but not sickly, and not too flowery. After about 20 minutes I could smell the jasmine notes coming through which I really liked as jasmine is a favourite of mine. About an hour later, the fragrance delivered a lovely vanilla note which again, wasn't too sweet, but had a lovely feminine aroma to it.
There is a great freshness to this fragrance, and it's delicate without being weak and watery, which I liked. It settles down nicely on the skin and I think it's a nice, cheap perfume for daytime wear.
With the Avon's Liiv Botanicals: Sensuality fragrance, Avon have produced a perfume which lasts longer than most of their other offerings and I was fairly impressed with the staying power. I was able to smell the product on my skin easily a few hours later, and it only really seems to fade after 4 hours, which again for Avon perfumes is great.
I can recommend the Liiv Botanicals: Sensuality fragrance, and it was a gift that I really like. The price is good and the fragrance is also very nice, being floral without smelling like a florist's shop, and it's very fresh. Recommended.
I saw this eau de toilette a while ago now in Avon and liked the sound of it. I was about to order it for myself when my mum offered to buy it to put towards my Christmas presents, which she did, and consequently I forgot all about it until the 25th December..
What drew my eyes to this when I saw it in the Avon brochure was the fact it sounded very light and fresh and as I was looking for a new daytime scent it sounded perfect as it features top notes of Water Lily, heart notes of Jasmine and finishes with a base of Vanilla.
This is part of the liiv Botanicals range in Avon which prides itself on it's products being 'closer to nature'. According to Avon Sensuality is made from natural fragranced oils and is apparently dye free and preservative free.
The eau de toilette comes housed in a sleek, yet simplistic looking glass bottle. This is slimline, and on first appearances it looks like a basic cylindrical shape bottle with a matte effect to the glass. On closer inspection there is a slight curvature on one side which is set into the glass and is almost like a leaf in shape - again giving the indication this is a more 'natural' fragrance than what Avon is used to creating. Another little touch to just add is the fact the 'leaf' is actually clear glass which I like as not only the contents are clearly visible on this part, but the amount used/left is much easier to see rather than weighing the bottle and hazarding a guess.
Sensuality is available in a standard 50 ml size and is an Eau De Toilette. When it is available in the brochures it retails from around £10.
(As this is an Avon fragrance it is available through your local Rep, Online, or check out Ebay)
My Experience of using this~
I have to admit that I hadn't really seen this featured in many of the Avon brochures, and I do like to trawl through each page so it's not as if I have missed seeing it, but as it is part of the liiv range which also seems to be hit and miss in Avon, I didn't think too much of it at the time. When my mum bought it as part of my Christmas presents back in May of last year, I had honestly forgotten all about it until I opened it and immediately sprayed it onto my wrist on Christmas morning. I wasn't expecting much to be honest (as negative as that sounds) as it was billed as a being a fresh and delicate scent and I was wondering if it would even be noticeable. I have to say I was extremely surprised at just how beautiful it was on first trying it though:
The first blast of this onto my skin was actually a lot stronger than I had anticipated; but in a good way. The top note of Water Lily was immediately noticeable, as was the more subtle heart of Jasmine which kicked in very quickly, but mingled nicely with the delicate water lily. What makes this special for me is the fact that the base of the Vanilla isn't the obvious scent here; which as much as I love vanilla I find it can take over sometimes. The main thing here is definitely the water lily but there is a warmth as well like a hint of ginger that gives it Oomph. Another thing I adore about this fragrance is it smells like a fresh bouquet of flowers when spritzed - it doesn't smell artificial at all (which for Avon is surprising!).
This is a really beautiful fragrance that I will be buying more of once this bottle has run out. Disappointingly, I haven't seen it much in recent brochures, however after checking on Ebay I have found new bottles at under £3 and also it's sister perfume In Harmony (which I have purchased so expect an upcoming review). This is a very light and airy scent that once sprayed may seem a little overpowering but does fade slightly. It doesn't fade completely though and does linger delicately for approximately 5 hours when first applied which I think is quite reasonable. It is ideal for me as a daytime scent as it just isn't strong enough to be worn on an evening but that is just my opinion.
A really pretty fragrance that isn't too floral (hooray) but is very feminine.
