~*~*~ Avon Secret Fantasy Star ~*~*~
~*~*~ What is it? ~*~*~
Secret Fantasy Star is a fairly new fragrance by Avon. I would say it is more aimed at teens maybe early 20's judging by the advertising in the Avon brouchures which usually include a young blonde girl. This is the second fragrance in the Secret Fantasy range. It was introduced in 2011.
~*~*~ The Bottle ~*~*~
The bottle for this particular fragrance is a rounded top heavy pale pink glass bottle, the name is printed on the front in an attractive black font. A small clip around the neck holds a detachable star shaped charm on a 20cm stainless steel chain.
I quite like the simple attractiveness of this bottle and it matches the other fragrances available in the range.
~*~*~ The Price ~*~*~
As this is an Avon product you can expect to see it on offer now and again. It has a usual selling price of £11. I paid £6 for mine and it is currently on offer in brochure 17 for £6 again.
I think £6 is a perfect price for this, however I do feel £11 is a bit on the expensive side for an Avon product. For £11 you can pick up some celeb indorsed scents which may suit some people better. But like I said £6 is great. For your money you are getting a 50ml bottle.
~*~*~ The Scent ~*~*~
Avon descibe this as Glitzy, Sexy and Glam. A sparkling cocktail of mandarin and plum with mysterious night blooming jasmine, scarlet peony, and intimate silky sandalwood
This I do feel is an apt description. I own all three of the range, and I think this is my favourite of the three, I can definitely say that the latest one Secret Fantasy Kiss is my least favourite.
The notes are ~
Top Notes - Mandarin Orange, Ploom.
Middle Notes - Jasmine, Peony.
Base Notes - Sandalwood.
I find this a nice sweet scent, it reminds me of candy floss, it mellows into a powdery clean scent that I really like, it's lightly floral whist still being sweet. I do like it and it is a bargain price at £6.
~*~*~ Overall ~*~*~
I really like the whole range so far, my least favourite is the newest one, I feel that they have gone from the sweetness of the first two and tried to make it a more sophisticated scent. I prefer the sweetness, this one is very similar to the first yet it has a little added kick to make it a bit more exciting.
I wear these in the day, I haven't wore them on a night out and I don't think I would but that is because I have my favourites for a night out already.
These are brilliant scents for teens, the are light enough for them to wear without over doing it. It's not really age limited but I wouldn't buy them for my Nan who's favourite scent is Opium! For example.
This is more a fragrance for the young at heart!
I find the scent lingers around most of the day, I don't feel the need to top it up. I may apply it before going shopping etc. and then I won't feel the need to apply it again all day. I can't detect it in the evening but I don't feel like I need a re-spray then anyway.
In all it's a good cheap scent.
Thanks for reading :o) x
Summary: A nice cheap scent, buy it when it's on offer!
