Avon Passion Dance Eau de Toilette
Advantages: nice enough floral scent, with a hint of spice at the start
Disadvantages: so short lived, I am not sure why. Harder to get hold of nowadays.
I used to buy quite a lot of items from avon because my nextdoor neighbour is a rep, and I would always feel like I should buy something to be polite.
One campaign, I was browsing the fragrances. I don't wear perfumes that much, but this one appealed to me. Named passion dance, I was expecting quite a strong fragrance with a lot of personality. I should have known at about £8 for a 50ml bottle that this wasn't going to be the best perfume ever, but I thought I would give it a try.
The box looked quite sophisticated with red tones and the bodies of a man and woman dancing what looks like the tango to me. The glass bottle continued to ooze appeal with a curve that moulds seductively to your hand when you are using it. It is also a red bottle which I find quite unusual as all my other perfumes are in clear bottles.
The bottle has a spray dispenser, which is generous when you use it, but it works consistently in the way that it applies the Eau de toilette to your skin. I find it spreads it over a decent area, which could be overpowering in a perfume but for an EDT it works fine. I spray the wrist pulse points before dabbing onto my neck as well.
Described as an oriental-floral fragrance, I was looking forward to trying out this one. It features notes of: grapefruit, melon, lotus, jasmine, narcissus, rose, amber, moss and patchouli. My nose is not that delicate, but I can't pick out any one of these scents on its own, though do pick up the floral notes mostly.
Initially I find the scent quite powerful, spicy and seductive, but this initial heat cools down within a matter of about 15 minutes into a more floral scent which is nice, but not what I would call 'passionate' or seductive. It is just very every day and not that inspiring.
Even worse, within a couple of hours of applying this, the scent is so faint it is barely detectable, and even then it is quite a sweet floral scent which is not at all like the first layers of the scent to come through when I apply it.
I don't dislike this scent, but equally, I don't really like it. It is just too mundane, and I find my deoderant provides longer lasting fragrance than this one so it makes me wonder why I bothered in the first place.
Sure, it is cheap enough for you to spritz it onto yourself as many times as you like, but it just doesn't really feel worth it as the initial burst is the one that I like, and that fades far too fast.
This one is no longer available from avon directly, but you can still pick it up from ebay and occasionally amazon. It is nice enough for everyday, but just be prepared to reapply throughout the day, and don't expect anyone to whisk you into a tango while you are wearing it.
Summary: Nice enough, but no-one is going to get that passionate about this one.
