“ Brand: Avon / Type: Fragrance / Concentration: Eau de Toilette „
I tried the 3 Scentini scents when they came out in Avon a while back and the scent came out again with 3 new scents under the Scentini Nights name. I wear perfume every day and I tend to wear a lot of Avon scents as it is generally cheap and cheerful. I like to try new scents since they are new and also they tend to launch with a not bad special offer at times.
This comes in a 30ml bottle and was priced at £8 in the Avon book when it came out a few months ago. I think the special offer price was £4, or 2 for £8 or that. This range didn't last all that long in the main Avon book and has been relegated to the little sale book that often comes with Avon but it was selling for £3 so if you liked it then there was the perfect chance to stock up.
I do like the look of the bottle. It has a nice shape to it and I think that it is meant to look like a drink glass. It is thinner on the bottom and gets wider as it goes up the bottle. Through the clear glass you can see that the liquid is seperated into 2 halfs and you shake the bottle to mix the scent up. It doesn't look like an expensive Perfume but it isn't anyway and just looks fun.
The scent of this is a fruity scent. I had to look online for the scent in here to find out exactly what was in here and it is noted that there is Cherry Blossom Pomegranate and Cedar. I'm often not so good with picking out scents but I have used quite a few Cherry Blossom scented products and I think the light Floral kind of scent can be detected ok. There is definitely lots of Juicy, Fruity scents from this and lingering behind there is a dash of Muskiness so that could explain the notes. It is just the kind of scent I go for and I bought a few of them when they were on offer.
The bad thing I found about this scent and also with most of the Avon Perfumes which have the £8 price mark is that the scent doesn't seem to last all that long. I don't mind to reapply when it's cheap but after about an hour I can't smell this unless I stick my nose right against my wrist.
A lovely fresh fruity scent and worth trying if you spot it in the sale book.
I received Scentini Nights Purple Pulse Eau de Toilette for Christmas.
I was excited to try it as I had been really impressed with the Scentini Plum Twist perfume I also own.
The Scentini range of fragrances is made by Avon. They released 3 Scentini fragrances and then more recently 3 more fragrances called Scentini Nights.
~ Price and availability ~
The eau de toilette comes in a 30ml bottle and is available to order from your local Avon representative or online at www.avonshop.co.uk.
It usually costs £8.00, but as it is about to be discontinued it is in the current sale brochure for £3.00 along with the other 2 Scentini Nights fragrances, Midnight Glow (a deep blue colour) and Emerald Sparkle (a deep dark green colour).
I am ordering both of the other Scentini Nights fragrances to try.
~ Bottle ~
The bottle holds 30ml of this fragrance. The bottle is cute and doesn't look stupidly small at all!
The bottle is a nice shape - widening at the neck and it has bubble shapes in the back of the bottle and the word 'SCENTINI' on the front of the bottle. The lid is purple and made of plastic as is the vaporiser button. The perfume itself is 2 different colours.
The bottle is made from clear glass. There is a clear liquid which sits on the bottom of the bottle and a deep dark purple coloured liquid which sits on top of this in the bottle and there is a clear border of where one colour ends and the other begins.
The idea is to shake the bottle to mix the layers together before spraying the fragrance. Avon advise that the fragrance should be shaken before use as it is designed as a cocktail of different fragrant layers.
When shaken, the liquid appears all purple and very cloudy, but with time it separates into the two layers again.
~ Scent ~
The eau de toilette goes onto your skin very greasy if you don't shake it well, but it is fine when it is shaken up.
The fragrance is very fruity.
Its notes include pomegranate, cherry blossom and cedar and it is described by Avon as oriental - fruity.
It does have a slightly oriental scent to it. There is something reminiscent of marzipan that I detect, but I wouldn't say it was sharp or harsh. The pomegranate and cherry blossom are the obvious notes that I can pick out.
It is sweet and I think it is quite summery. It is a very light, pleasant fragrance.
Being an eau de toilette, I find that it isn't as strong as an eau de parfum and it has poor sillage and I haven't been too impressed with its staying power. It lasts around 3 hours and then is no longer detectable, which is disappointing especially as I really like the scent.
Because of its staying power being rather poor, compared with other fragrances, I tend to use this fragrance just to freshen up.
The bottle is a handy size for my handbag.
I am in my mid-twenties and I really like this fragrance. I think this scent would also appeal to girls in their teens. I think the packaging is aimed at younger girls.
Although this is called Scentini Nights I think this is more of a daytime scent as it is light, fruity and summery.
~ Conclusion ~
The scent is really nice! It is really fruity and sweet.
I have found the longevity of this fragrance to be rather poor, but I would buy it again and I think it would make a nice gift.
At £3.00 per bottle it is a bargain, but it is being discontinued after this brochure so hurry if you want a bottle.
