A ROSY REVIEW FOR A NOT-SO-ROSY FRAGRANCE!
Avon Scentini Rose Fizz Eau de Toilette

Avon Scentini Rose Fizz Eau de Toilette
Advantages: lovely scent, like a Marc Jacobs scent, cheap, sometimes found in Avon sale brochure
Disadvantages: staying power is just 5 hours, aimed at younger women, discontinued so hard to find
I got Scentini Plum Twist as a gift a while ago and had always fancied trying the other two in the range, Scentini Rose Fizz and Scentini Citrus Chill.
The fragrances are made by Avon.
I ended up leaving my purchase of Scentini Rose Fizz rather late. By the time I ordered it a month or so back, it was discontinued from the regular brochure and only available in Avon's sale brochure.
~ Price and availability ~
This fragrance is an eau de toilette, which is available in a 30ml bottle.
It usually costs £8.00, but in the sale brochure I got this for just £3.50!
It is still available on ebay and Amazon.co.uk and it does sometimes come up in Avon's sale brochure.
~ Bottle ~
The box for the fragrance is bright pink with splashes of bright green and blue! Otherwise, it is fairly plain.
The bottle itself is quite small holding just 30ml. 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 made from translucent pink plastic, as is the vaporiser button. The perfume itself is 2 different colours. There is a clear liquid which sits on the bottom of the bottle and a pink 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.
~ Scent ~
This fragrance is really sweet and uplifting.
It offers notes of pineapple, mango, peach, rose, violet and white trees. The fragrance should be shaken before use, because it is designed as a cocktail of different fragrant layers.
It is really greasy on your skin if you do not shake it before spraying it.
This fragrance smells amazing. It is fruity, floral, light and fresh.
It really reminds me of Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola Sunsheer edition, which I recently paid £47.00 for. To me, it smells really similar.
It has fruity and floral elements as well as fresh watery green notes that I can detect in this, as well as Oh, Lola Sunsheer.
To be honest, I cannot detect the rose note in this fragrance even though I think rose is quite a distinctive scent and I'd expect that I would be able to detect it if it was present.
The fruitier notes seem to dominate this scent, but I can also detect woodiness in the dry down.
It is a very pleasant fragrance and I can't imagine that anyone would find it offensive.
I think this fragrance is aimed at a younger target audience judging by the design of the box and the bottle, but I am in my mid-twenties and I love it!
The fragrance lasts around 5 hours on my skin so as far as longevity goes it is not great, but not the worst either.
I think it is definitely more of a day time scent, rather than one I would wear on a night out.
~ Conclusion ~
I love this fragrance. It smells so nice. It is sweet, fruity and floral and smells exactly like Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola! Sunsheer edition, but is about £40 cheaper.
The bottle is nice enough, but nothing special.
It lasts around 5 hours on my skin, which is not as long as most of my fragrances stick around, but for the price I paid I can hardly grumble and I won't be knocking a star off.
Overall I have been very impressed with this fragrance and I would recommend it and I will definitely buy it again if my bottle runs out.
