==Avon - Outspoken by Fergie==
From time to time I come across the Avon catalogue at work and during tea break I can't help but flick through it. Many years ago my mum used to be an Avon lady so I used to get all the make up smellies and the like from Avon since she gave that up however purchases from them have been few and far between.
I really only decided to order this particular perfume I suppose because it came with a celebrity endorsement. This is silly I know but I spent years wearing Avon perfumes when I was younger and now feel I have a slight phobia of them (although most of them were perfectly acceptable and perhaps nicer than some of the more expensive celebrity ones I buy today!).
The bottle of the fragrance was rather eye catching and a lot more 'designed' than any other the other Avon perfume bottles. The wonderful nearly black purple colour makes the bottle look expensive and seductive. The shape that the bottle is makes it seem feminine yet sexy and I found the whole design very visually appealing. It also worked very well for use too as the chunky base of the perfume bottle meant it stands well on my dresser and the clear lid is easily pulled off to allow the spray to be pressed.
I paid £14 for this bottle of Outspoken which contains a good 50 ml amount. This price is comparatively cheap when you look at a lot of other celebrity perfumes that are for sale especially for the amount that you get.
To be fair when I first used the perfume I was not expecting too much from it as both the price and the fact that it was being sold by Avon was making me feel it wouldn't be up to scratch. However I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised by it. The smell of the perfume was strong but not overpowering. The first scents that are noticeable are the dark fruitiness of the blackcurrants which are contained in the top notes together with wild saffron and star fruit. The fragrance very much draws you into it and smells good enough to eat. The heart notes which are passion flower, jasmine and tuberose lift the fragrance and give it a little more depth and these key features all seem to work well together to create a wonderful scent. The base notes that linger for a very good amount of time include leather, ebony and vetiver giving yet more depth and staying power to this strangely alluring perfume.
The scent is warming and deep and has a very good staying power because of this. I have to say that I like it very much and given that it is a deep and musky fragrance the sweetness and fruitiness of the top notes give it that burst of femininity that it so very much needs. I find myself being very pleased with my purchase of this perfume from Avon and feel that it is very good value for money as it seems that a few squirts of the perfume is all you need to get the desired amount of coverage which actually goes a good way to lasting all working day.
I think for the fact that the fragrance itself is something that I personally really like and that it is both an affordable and long lasting perfume it really does have to get a top score from me! I feel 5 out of 5 stars is in order and a very high recommendation.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
