      Gorgeous, summery perfume

      I am trying to use up some of the perfume that is in my collection, in anticipation of receiving more for Christmas. This one was bought by a friend of mine, as this was one of her favourite fragrances, and she thought I would like it too. This scent was first released in 2008 and like the name suggests, this is an exotic, summery scent. I don't often shop with Avon, as I don't know any reps, and I honestly keep forgetting they exist. I have bought and liked some previous scents from Avon, but it wouldn't normally cross my mind to check them out.

      The 50ml bottle is very plain, though the slightly aquamarine colour also adds to the overall summery vibe from this perfume. The bottle is a teardrop shape, with a small plastic lid. As with most of my perfumes, I have lost the plastic lid so can't really comment on the lid, but I do remember it was a similar colour to the bottle, only it was plastic.

      The top notes of this perfume are cyclamen and ginger
      The heart notes are tiare flower, jasmine and exotic coconut,
      The base notes are musk mixed with accords of Monoi coconut

      When you first spray this, it is a flowery, exotic scent with a hint of spiciness from the ginger. It does take a few minutes for the scent to 'settle', and I did find initially I didn't like the scent, and only realised later that while the initial burst is a bit strong for me, it does settle into something nice. The lasting scent is a very coconutty, slightly musky sent. Coconut and musk together doesn't sound like a combination that would work together, but in this perfume, it really does work. The coconut could be an intense scent, but the ginger, jasmine and musk stops this from happening and instead you're left with an exotic scent and one that reminds you of warm summer days at the beach (even when you're in -2 Northern Ireland in November).

      I have found that this is one of my longest lasting scents. I can spritz this on in the morning and I can still detect it mid afternoon. This scent won't appeal to everyone, but for those who like the smell of coconuts, this is ideal.

      This is available to purchase through an Avon representative, on Avon's website or occasionally via eBay or Amazon. Current price is £10.50, which I think is a fantastic price for a great perfume. I have had this at least 2 years now (maybe more) and the scent hasn't faded or gone off, so it's a very good price for something that could, if not stored in direct sunlight, last a few years - and it's a great pick me up.

      Check out http://avonshop.co.uk/ to purchase. At the time of writing my review, it was on offer at half price, but not sure how long the offer is on for. I have also seen it on Amazon at a price of £6.99 + £3.00 p + p.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Would definitely buy again when it's on offer

        My younger sister requested a bottle of Tahitian holiday perfume from Avon for her birthday last year, so I went onto Avon's online shop to order her some. When I found it I saw it was 3 for £10, so I gave her two of the 50ml bottles and kept one for myself! Cheeky!


        This perfume comes in a pretty blue and brown box with flowers on, and the perfume bottle is see through showing the lovely light blue perfume. It has a plastic cap which stays on well, I've had this perfume for a year and haven't lost the top of it yet which is a miracle itself! On the glass bottle it has 'Avon Tahitian Holiday' written on it in brown with a few of the same flowers from box. The overall look is pretty, summery, fresh and looks great on the windowsill with the sun shining through it.


        Avon describes this perfume as having a 'fresh, exotic scent with notes of Tahitian Tiare flower and island musk'. I have no idea what a Tahiatian Tiare flower smells like, but I can tell you this perfume has a wonderful coconut scent and also reminds me of sun lotion. One sniff of this perfume and you are transported to a tropical beach, sitting in the sun and drinking a Piña colada!


        The downside to this perfume is that the scent is so summery I don't feel it is wearable in the cold winter months, and, although I spray any perfume liberally, the scent wears off quite quickly. It's a good job it's cheap because you have to re-apply it every couple of hours. It does now come in a body mist spray that is considerably cheaper so if you did like the fragrance you could apply the body mist first for a stronger, more long lasting scent.


        Overall, a lovely coconutty perfume with notes of nostalgia, but loses one star for poor duration.

          My holiday perfume!

          ---Intro....a summer perfume review in winter---
          As the year comes to an end it's time to do a bit of tidying round the house, and whilst sorting out the drawers in my bedroom I came across my Avon holiday perfume which I'd planned to review after my holiday but not got round to! So here we go with my first perfume review.


          ---Me and Perfume---
          As a creature of habit I have primarily used CK One for years and years, but one of my few exceptions is when I go on holiday, and then out comes the Avon Tahitian Holiday perfume. I have also been known to use it on the odd summer day in the UK, but since we only get 2 or 3 of these a year in Cumbria it's unusual.

          I bought this product several years ago, I believe in preparation for my holidays in 2008 (so I can't recall the outer packaging). I also have the matching 'sun ready' hair mist and exotic body mist which I got at the same time - there was probably a deal on.


          ---The bottle and application---
          The 50ml bottle is simple with three flowers on it, and the name of the perfume. As the bottle is clear, you can see that the perfume is a pleasant light blue colour. With the lid off I can smell the coconut fragrance before I've squirted it, and already I have thoughts of holidays on my mind. Spray onto the wrists and neck (since it's cheap you can afford to be liberal)...and enjoy!


          ---The smell---
          It is a bit artificial smelling and ever so slightly unpleasant at first, however a few seconds later and it's settled down to the lovely (sweet, but not too sickly so) smell of coconuts. I am not a perfume reviewer by trade, and although I appreciate the technical sounding descriptions of base, middle and top notes which others use, I'm not going to lie and pretend to know anything of these things. Basically, this smells of coconuts, and really it reminds me of my teenage years drinking Malibu, which has got to be a good thing!

          When I'm on holiday and have this on with the hair and body mists too, I imagine that it's impossible to miss the smell of coconuts. Personally I like that, and since no one has commented, then I suppose I'm not unpleasant to be around! I tend to spray it on myself in the morning on holiday and again in the evening after showering. The smell does last very well (lingers far more than my usual CK One), but it's not too overpowering - perhaps if you want to be a bit more subtle than me then avoid going over the top by using the other products at the same time.


          ---Final thoughts---
          If you don't like coconut, then you won't like this. But if you do, then I'd definitely recommend it. I think it is suitable for girls and women of all ages, but probably only for use in the summer, and preferably when on a sunny holiday! At my rate of use, I have many years left of use from this bottle and am glad that I bought it. However, for now it's going up in my suitcase with the suntan lotion and bikinis.

          The best thing about this perfume is the price. The rrp is £10.50 for a 50ml bottle. It is currently available for £7, so the price does vary over time and you might get it for even less (I think I paid around £5).

          As an Avon product, this can be purchased through your Avon representative (which is what I did, back when I had a job where we had one), or from the website - www.avonshop.co.uk

            Disadvantages

            Fantastic scent if you love coconut, avoid it if you hate the stuff

            This is another Avon scent that I was given as a present, and once you've smelled it, you'll never forget it. It has a very strong scent of coconut, which is great if you love the smell of coconut, not so good if you don't. Looking at the description on the website, "A fresh, exotic scent with notes of Tahitian Tiare Flower and island musk", you don't actually get the impression that it smells anything like coconut, unless the Tahitian Tiare flower smells like coconuts...

            The bottle is fairly boring for Avon- I think that usually Avon perfume bottles are quite pretty, but apart from being a nice pale blue, it's nothing really special.

            The perfume is not really to my taste, I'm not the world's biggest coconut fan, but it's not bad, I tend to use it for work, where I want a scent, but not one that I'm that bothered about as I'm a cleaner, and it usually gets mingled in with the smell of cleaning products. So, it's not bad, but it's not great.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Delicate coconut perfume - a bit too delicate for me.

            ===Why I Bought This===

            Avon are continually introducing new fragrances so it is impossible to keep up and try them all as they become available for sale. Therefore although this perfume had been out for four years, this bottle, which was part of a gift package sold for £3 when you ordered another item, was the first time I had tried Tahitian Holiday.



            ===The Brand===

            Avon is a long established direct selling network which used to sell just door-to-door but you can order directly from their website these days if you do not have a local representative handy.
            Avon has 18 different brouchures issued throughout the year - or their stock can be viewed online.



            ===The Product===

            Avon Tahitian Holiday was introduced in April 2008.

            'EDT Tahitian Holiday arrives with tropical and sea notes of sun, palms, sand and sea... A part of exotic aromas from a distant island is combined in a harmonic composition of cyclamen and ginger in the top notes. The heart blooms with aromas of tiare flower, jasmine and exotic coconut, while the base notes fondle with notes of sensual musk mixed with accords of Monoi coconut.' Fragrantica

            Avon's website call it 'a fresh, exotic scent with notes of Tahitian Tiare Flower and island musk'.

            Comes in a brown and aqua coloured box.
            Eau de toilette.
            Made in Poland.
            Contains oxybenzone and is 74.2% alcohol denat. Flammable.
            The bottle inside is clear smooth glass in a sort of teardrop shape.
            The perfume is a light clear aqua colour and it has a blue spray top and a cheap plastic blue cap.



            ===Cost===

            £10.50 - but I had mine as a special offer with other items for £3.



            ===My Opinion===

            I do not think I would ever pay full price for this - and I think it was probably the cheap looking bottle that put me off ordering this item when it was first introduced.
            Personally I do like the aroma of coconut and have used Yves Rocher coconut body lotion in the past, which, to my opinion, is actually more of a stronger frgrance than this perfume is.
            Basically the only aroma I was getting from this perfume was a delicate waft of coconut, possibly with a little ginger and musk - but basicaly it was like baked coconut.
            Even then it was quite delicate. The smell would last for about three hours but was no stronger than if you had used perfumed body lotion.
            It was inoffensive and I would not mind using it as such, but not one I was mad keen on or which I would want to purchase again.
            Not having been on a Caribbean holiday it did not remind me of anything really, and if I had wanted a coconut fragrance the Yves Rocher coconut range is nicer and lasts longer - and for a more reasonable price.



            ===Star Rating===

            3 stars.



            ===Would I Recommend?===

            Yes - if you want a delicate coconut scent.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            More air freshener than perfume

            WILL YOU LIKE IT? If you love a strong coconut scent then probably. If you're not too keen on an overwhelming scent of coconut (or strong scents in general) then no.


            ABOUT THE SCENT: First up, like I've said, you're going to have to LOVE the scent of coconut to even want to consider this perfume. In a nutshell (coconutshell?) that's the main thing this perfume has going for it.

            Secondly, there's nothing subtle about it. It doesn't settle into any other smell. It's not multilayered - there are no discernible top-notes or after-notes etc. It's a strong coconutty scent - and there you have it.

            HOW I FOUND IT: Rather than finding the smell 'fresh' and 'natural' as some people have described it, I find it overly sweet and cloying. It's got nothing in common with Hawaiian Tropic (as some people claim), which is a natural, nutty scent. Instead, this puts me in mind of those trees you hang on the rearview mirror of your car and made me feel slightly heady after a while.

            I actually don't mind strong-scented perfumes (and happen to prefer them to ones which fade without a trace five minutes after you put them on). However, the depth of this scent is just too knock-over-the-head unsubtle. Compared to Estee Lauder's coconut scented perfume and body oil (which, admittedly, is far more expensive than this Avon offering), it is heavy and too sweet. I can actually imagine some people being quite offended or overwhelmed by it.

            That said, I think for a holiday (and if sprayed far enough in advance, in a small quantity and left to settle), it might pass muster. For everyday wear though, it's just too cloying.

            Coconut and floral fragrance from Avon

            I was looking for a scent with a discernible coconut note but didn't want to just settle for a coconut perfume oil so I was delighted when a friend recommended Avon's Tahitian Holiday, telling me that it was a floral based scent with coconut mid and base notes. In fact, I was so excited that I made an order immediately without having tried it first. At the time the perfume was on special offer so I wasn't too worried about wasting my money. I must admt that, being a perfume snob, I was a little dubious as the low price did not inspire confidence.

            The bottle design of Tahitian Holiday is quite nice but it's let down by the rather cheap looking plastic lid which tends to get separated from the glass bottle when it's in my handbag. The actual bottle is a slightly tapering glass flask. I much prefer the turquoise and chocolate cardboard outer package to the bottle.

            Intially I picked up a mainly fruity scent with an underlying coconut fragrance. But after a moment the fruitness abates and gives way to a more floral scent whih has a powdery whiff. Avon say that the top notes are cyclamen and ginger but I felt that there was quite distinct note of freesia, a scent I particularly love.

            I really like this very fresh immediate fragrance but I do feel that it is lost too quickly, may be because I find the middle notes a little too sweet. Avon lists these as tiare flower, jasmine and coconut. I'm not at all familiar with tiare flower but jasmine is my favourite floral and I don't really get it at all. The sweetness of the coconut combined with the florals is however reminiscent of sugary candy. It's the coconut that dominates however and it's this note that friends and colleagues always remark on.

            According to Avon the base notes are monoi, coconut and musk. A little digging tells me that monoi is a blend of extracts of coconut oil and gardenia flower but I'd never have picked that one out. There's just enough muskiness to give a bit of weight to the fragrance without it being too heavy. I like this because I think this is a very good holiday scent and it's exactly because it isn't too heavy that you can wear it as a day perfume even in quite warm weather.

            As far as staying power is concerned Tahitian Holiday is a bit of a let down. I tend to reappaly after four hours and I think the base notes should hang around a bit longer.

            In the UK a 50ml bottle costs £10.50 direct from Avon but there are usually promotions available to make it cheaper.

            Overall this is a lovely fresh scent that reminds me very much of beach holidays. It may not have brilliant staying power but at this price you can afford to reapply quite liberally.

              A lovely tropical scented fragrance at a cheap price

              I do like most, but not all, Avon fragrances and this one Tahitian Holiday is one of my absolute favourites.
              This isn't a new scent and was introduced back in 2008, but it seems to be quite popular as it often features in the Avon brochures and not just in the summer months. So what makes it so popular?

              This features a lot of my favourite 'ingredients' including coconut and tiare flower which are beautiful on their own but combined together create an exotic treat for the nostrils.

              So a quick description of the bottle before we get down to business.

              Tahitian Holiday comes housed in a simplistic designed bottle that is upright standing. It has a slightly wider base and veers in towards the top becoming more slimline where the nozzle is situated. Because the bottle is transparent, the fragrance is clearly visible and is a pretty ocean blue/turquoise in colour.

              This comes in a standard size of 50ml and is an Eau de Toilette. There is also a body mist available in this range, and when launched there was a 'hair mist' version of the EDT but I haven't seen that for a while so maybe it wasn't popular enough? (I did actually try that just for the record and it was too heavy and left my hair slightly greasy).

              Prices are very reasonable and the 50ml can be purchased via Avon for around the £6 mark.

              Tahitian Holiday is made up of some very tropical notes and sound delicious enough to eat -

              It opens with the top notes of Cyclamen and Ginger, before moving onto the heart which comprises of Jasmine, Tiare Flower and Coconut before finishing with a base of Monoi Coconut.

              As you can tell there is a coconut theme going on here, so if you are not a fan than I suggest you steer clear as it is a very dominant scent throughout.

              My thoughts on using this~
              As I said this is one of my favourites as it is such a mouthwatering treat when worn. On first applying to my skin I can detect the Coconut immediately as it does tend to overpower the other notes. Im not sure exactly what Cyclamen smells like exactly so I can't comment whether this was noticeable at all. I did pick up on the Ginger however but not straight away - it was more when the scent started to settle and fade that it become more obvious.

              The overall theme here though as mentioned is mainly a coconut one, but because it has the tropical monoi and tiare flower combined it is more than just an average fragrance.

              I like this as you may have gathered by now because it not only evokes images of summer holidays, but because of the hint of ginger that seems to linger it also gives it an unexpected warmth when worn, so doesn't seem too out of place even now the weather has somewhat turned colder.

              This is a suitable scent for any age range I would say and when sprayed on my skin first thing in a morning it can still be detected quite strongly well into the late afternoon, so it has the staying power as well..what more could you want?

              Available from your local Rep, or Online.

                Disadvantages

                A gorgeous smelling coconut scented exotic perfume, perfect for holidays.

                One of the many perfumes I've trial-ran from Avon, due to my friend being an Avon rep, is Tahitian Holiday, and it's by far my favourite of the bunch. I had one spray and then bought a bottle off her straight away, as it could almost be made for me!

                The 50ml bottle is quite simple, being a summery pale blue with chocolate coloured flowery highlights. The box it comes in is equally tropical looking with the sky blue and brown complimenting each other really well. This eau de toilette is also good value, and depending on when you buy it from the Avon catalogue / rep or website, it can be anywhere from £10 per 50ml bottle to £12 for 2, which I think is a total bargain, as I love this perfume.

                On first spray I thought it was wonderful, it's so exotic smelling that it reminds me of holidays in the sun, beachs and general fun times. The main aroma for me, mixed in with some gorgeous florals including jasmine, is coconut, so basically, if you love the smell of coconut, you'll love this perfume. It's very coconutty, summery, fresh and feminine, and is perfect for wearing on holidays or warm summer days (not like we get many of them, but still...)

                This scent lasts well on my skin, for 5 or so hours, which is a miracle for Avon perfumes, I usually only get 2-3 hours max out of them, so that's very pleasing particularly as the scent is so enjoyable for me. I wear this as a daytime perfume in the summer, it might not be strong enough for evening, and it's definitely not a wintery perfume, but I can definitely recommend it.

                This sweet, floral and generally exotic coconut perfume is a winner - it smells gorgeous, light and brings back lovely holiday memories, plus it's very good value too, particularly if you can get some whilst it's on offer. 5 stars.

                  Disadvantages

                  A long lasting summer scent

                  Amongst the many Avon fragrances I have tried is the Tahitian Holiday eau de toilette. I was first introduced to it by the Avon lady who recommended it, as I said I was rather partial to coconut based scents. At the time when I bought my bottle of this fragrance it was on an offer which meant I was lucky enough to purchase it at a reduced price. Even at full price I feel its a good fragrance worth considering.

                  The normal selling price for Tahitian Holiday is around £10 per bottle and for that you can expect a 50ml sized bottle. At the moment certain fragrances are on a 2 for £12 offer which is very good value and this fragrance being part of the offer with free delivery online right now, would make a nice stocking filler gift for xmas.

                  *********************************************************
                  The bottle and box that Tahitian Holiday comes in is very pretty and has a simple look which I like. It has aspects of summery sky blue with hints of gold and brown. I feel that the look really suits the fragrance as it evokes a summery feel that entices and excites. The bottle is plain yet well formed and is in a very pale blue glass with an easy to use spray top applicator.

                  I like the look and feel of the tall sleek glass bottle and I feel it looks very nice when out on display. I tend to keep my fragrances out of direct sunlight so as to make sure they remain true to their original scent, however I feel this bottle would look super placed on your dressing table display.

                  *********************************************************
                  Tahitian Holiday is light pretty and exotic. I love the coconut tone that runs through the fragrance as it lasts well and smells gorgeous. The coconut scent in this fragrance is very good and not too synthetic for me at all. When I wear this fragrance it lasts really well and over time it softens and mellows on my skin. I feel this is a very enjoyable fragrance to wear and have worn it on warm days and summer nights and found it has stayed on my skin nicely.

                  The top notes in this scent are interesting with a blend of ginger and cyclamen. Until I wore this fragrance I always thought of cyclamen as being a winter flower in the uk, yet it works nicely in this scent. Other notes within Tahitian Holiday are tahitian tiare flower, jasmine and island musk which adds longevity and smoothness to the scent. I feel that the blend used gives off a really nice effect that is very pleasing and easy for me to wear.

                  **********************************************************
                  I feel that Tahitian Holiday is a lovely light yet sweet summery blend that oozes just enough coconut to make me happy to wear it. I feel it has an exotic warm feel which lasts very well. The price of the fragrance is very good as you get plenty of scent for a £10 spend.

                  I wouldn't wear this as much once colder weather sets in as it feels like a summer scent, but as it is on offer right now it would be a perfect gift to give in anticipation of the lovely summer we all hope to have next year. As I really like this fragrance and feel it offers good value for money I feel it ought to get 4 stars.

                    Disadvantages

                    .

                    This Perfume has been out for a while in Avon. Can't say exactly how long, but would say about a year and a half at a guess. This comes and goes in the Avon books sometimes, and seems to be promoted around the summer months I would say, but recently I think it has been in most books.

                    I first tried this about a year ago, and although it isn't a Perfume I would buy all that often, I still like it for what it is, it's just that there is so many other Perfumes out there that I like so much better.

                    This looks like the Dooyoo picture. I'm not overly keen on the box, as I find it a bit boring even though there is a lot going on on the box. The bottle is nice enough looking. Kind of a tear Drop shape which goes from wider at the bottom to narrower as it gets up the bottle. The gold lettering and design on the bottle look alright against the blue bottle. It doesn't look that expensive a bottle, but it isn't anyway. Just a fun scent.

                    This comes in a 50ml bottle and the right price for this is £10. This being Avon it is on offer more often than not and the usual half price offer of £5 is when I bought my first bottle.

                    So how does this smell? It is an exotic, heavier scent but it has a scattering of lighter notes mixed through as well. The main scent in here is a Creamy Coconut scent, which I thought would be a bit overpowering, but it is nice. After 20 minutes it settles down a bit though, and doesn't smell as harsh. There seems to be other notes such as Sparkling notes, White Florals and a sort of Ginger scent mixed through this as well. A strange but nice mix of lots of different smells.

                    This doesn't seem to last all that long. I usually reapply through the day, but when I went to reapply I could hardly smell this anymore. It seems to get quite faint pretty quickly.

                    Overall it is a nice scent. It is a lighter scent and I think this would conjour up images of a nice Sunny Holiday. Worth a try if you like Coconut scents.

                      I've never smelt better!

                      I first came across the Avon Tahitian Holiday range last year, when as a new product to they had a scented page in the catalogue. Normally it is difficult to detect an aroma well from these small scent patches, but the Tahitian range has such a distinct aroma that it came through really well. From the first moment I swiped my wrist across the page I knew that it was the scent for me, and I have not been wrong!


                      Tahitian Eau De Toilette comes in a tall teardrop shaped clear glass bottle with a pump spray and a turquoise plastic lid. The bottle is a tactile shape and is very easy to hold whilst spraying. Because it is clear glass you can see the colour of the fragrance: a lovely shade turquoise which puts me very much in mind of the sea, and the simple swirling brown lettering and flower decoration does not detract at all from the simplicity of the design and so overall this bottle looks very stylish and a lot more expensive that it actually is. One thing that I really like about this bottle is the way that the tube from the dispenser bends to reach the very bottom of the bottle, meaning that by the time you come to the end, it will be easy to spray out every single last drop.


                      This scent really is all about exotic holidays. On the initial spray, you are immediately taken to a far away tropical destination - the coconut aroma mixed with the subtle floral notes puts you practically right on a beach, smothering yourself with suncream; I can practically feel the cocktail in my hand and hear the tin drums gently thrumming behind me mixing with the rustle of a coconut leaf parasol! Maybe a touch too much imagination, but this perfume is essentially a holiday in a bottle! There is no strong alcohol smell at all as this perfume is all about musk. As the coconut starts to fade, you are left with a long lasting sweet musky aroma which has a very slight citrus note, but is not overpowering to any degree. The floral note of the Tiare flower remains for a long time, and there is also a slight jasmine scent which again puts you in mind of holidays.


                      Of an evening, I would probably go for something a bit stronger, but I feel that as a summer daytime perfume, you cannot go wrong with this product if you like coconut and tropical scents. It is light, subtle and refreshing and the scent trails behind you as you walk - helped along even more by a hot sunny day! It is quite a girly simple aroma, so I think that this would also be ideal for a young girl who is starting to experiment with new perfumes. I can still detect the perfume after two or three hours, which is fairly good for me as no scents seem to stay on me for very long but refreshing the scent after that time is no problem at all - especially considering the very respectable price tag. Currently you can purchase this product for a bargain £5 for 50ml (which is half of the RRP of £10) from either your local Avon representative, or from avonshop.co.uk. If you do not want to commit yourself to spending £5 you can pick up the hair and body spray for under £2 which has exactly the same scent, but it does not last for anywhere near as long and it is also slightly greasy - but this does give your skin an attractive sheen.


                      I would not hesitate in recommending this product as I absolutely adore it. Anything that takes my head (if not my body!) to the beach gets a definite thumbs up from me!

                        A summer fragrance

                        Tahitian Holiday, Eau de Toilette is a perfume from avon and is currently on offer at £5 it usually it costs £10 for a 50ml bottle. I was initially drawn to this perfume after sniffing a 'smelly page' page in the catalogue and it immediatley made me think of being on holiday so I had to have it.

                        This 'cheap and cheerful' perfume comes in a brown and turquoise box which has pretty flowers and waves on it. When you open the box you will find the perfume bottle which again is turquoise with small flowers on, its quite a pretty little bottle and you can see through it which is great for knowing when you are running low.

                        The fragrance itself has a tropical floral scent which reminds me of holidays and coconut sun tan cream which is great if you like the smell of coconut sun tan cream lol. It is made from Tahitian tiare flower and exotic island musk it also contains Monoi Oil which is made from tiare flower and pure coconut oil hence the cocunut sun tan smell.

                        This perfume isn't over powering and makes a change from my usual slightly more expensive perfumes. The smell is also quite long lasting it will linger for around 5-6 hours and I can sometimes smell it on my clothes the next day though it's not over the top. It's quite nice to wear in the summer and in the day when on holiday. You can also get it in a body mist form for added smell during the day and when I ordered it I also got a hair mist to great for making your hair smell like holidays.

                        Thanks for reading my review I hope you found it useful, you may also find my reviews on other sites under the same name.

                        Disadvantages

                        Summer in a bottle

                        I love Avon perfume. Big name/designer perfumes cost so much these days and I love wearing the more expensive perfumes for special occasions and nights out, but day to day when I go to work or go shopping Avon are great for cheaper perfumes.

                        This perfume Tahitian Holiday is a lovely femine perfume. It has a fresh fruity smell. I think it has a hint of coconut smell in it and I LOVE it, you could almost be mistaken that you're on a tropical island whilst wearing this scent. It has a oily feel to it, but without being over oily, which makes your skin lovely and soft. It comes in a very pretty bottle which makes your friends actually think it cost more than it did and could be mistaken for a designer perfume.

                        I have sprayed this on very early morning and could still smell it as strong at lunch time. This is a perfect gift for a loved one, mom, sister or a treat for yourself.

                        Lovely summery perfume, smells divine but doesnt last very long throughout the day

                        When Avon brings out a new perfume they have started to put in the scratch and sniff pages which I think is a brilliant selling point as if your like me you dont want to waste your money on what the bottle looks like its great to smell before buying. Also with buying from Avon and not a more expensive brand name I feel a bit wary as to what something smells like.

                        I saw this bottle and instantly loved what I saw, the blue colour in the summer I just couldnt resist even though I didnt need anymore perfumes. I smelt the page and fell in love. I love the coconut smell as it reminds me of being a child and the smell of suncream on holidays and this is what it instantly reminded me of-suncream!
                        It smelt very fresh and summery and I liked the look too so ordered some.

                        As it was new it was on offer for £7 instead of £15 so again this tempted me.

                        The perfume comes in a very modern looking box the brown and blue together works really well. The bottle is upside down tear dropped shaped with clear glass so you can see the contents clearly and it has the perfume name on the front.

                        I opened the box straight away and sprayed it and loved what I smelt. It really did remind me of hot summer days.

                        This then knocked out my number one perfume (Lacoste Touch of Pink) and it takes alot to knock my number one out! I got so many compliments when wearing this everyone was asking what it was -I even had to buy my sister a bottle as she kept pinching mine!

                        The smell would still be around at the end of the day but I found the nicer coconutty part that hits you when first spraying did wear off quickly and would re apply if a few times in the day. After doing this I found to be using the perfume very quickly so bought the body mist also-exactly same smell but lighter when spraying.

                        Overall I love this perfume and would happily buy as a gift/ recomend but I would personally not pay the full £15 when it is usually on offer quite alot for half price.
