Avon Today Her Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Gorgeous chunky glass bottle, lovely feminine floral scent, reasonably priced, long lasting
Disadvantages: Headache-inducingly strong
I have 2 bottles of Avon's Today perfume from the Today, Tomorrow, Always collection.
Today, Tomorrow and Always are the names of the three perfumes all released at the same time, back in 2004 from the same collection.
I believe the Always perfume, which is the only one from the collection that I don't have, has now been replaced by a perfume called Forever so the collection now seems to be Today, Tomorrow, Forever!
~ Price and availability ~
Today is available to order from the Avon brochure through your local Avon representative or from the website, www.avonshop.co.uk and is priced at £14.00, but is currently reduced to £9.00 on the website. The perfumes are often on offers such as 2 for 1 in the Avon brochure.
~ Appearance ~
The bottle contains 50ml of perfume.
It is a cube shaped heavy thick glass bottle. The perfume appears a yellowy colour. The bottle neck has 'today. tomorrow. always' round it, which sits under the clear plastic lid of the bottle.
The lid is smooth and it is an odd rounded shape. It looks a bit like a rugby ball pointing upwards slightly.
The bottle is very feminine and looks and feels like it is very good quality. It is a beautiful addition to my dressing table.
~ Scent ~
Today perfume combines top notes of freesia, cactus sap and white pepper, middle notes of tuberose, orange blossom and hibiscus and base notes of sandalwood, cedar and musk.
The perfume smells feminine. Initially it is rather strong, almost headache inducing and I think it smells expensive.
The freesia is the first scent that I can detect in this perfume. I can then detect something floral, but more exotic.
Although the perfume is initially very strong, it settles on your skin. I would neither describe it as light or heavy.
It smells very floral and I have found it to be long lasting, still detectable 12 hours after application.
I really like this fragrance. It is very feminine and I really like wearing it.
I'd say it is more of a day time scent, rather than one I'd choose for nights out or special occasions.
I think Today would appeal to older women as well as women in their 20's like myself. I think it is probably a bit strong and floral for teens, who I think tend to suit sweet, fruity scents.
~ Conclusion ~
I really like this perfume.
The bottle is really stunning. It is feminine, heavy and it looks expensive.
The perfume has a very feminine floral scent, which I think smells expensive. It is very long lasting and it is very reasonably priced.
I think this is one of Avon's better fragrances and I would definitely buy it again.
Summary: The full 5 stars from me!
