I had never bothered with a Roll On Perfume. It always seemed a bit odd just rolling some perume on, and since I can easily fit a 50ml bottle in my bag, I guess this is good for if you want to put in your pocket as it is tiny.
This comes in a 9ml bottle. I got it for £3 which is a bit cheaper than the normal retail price. I'm not sure of the right price of this, but think it is £6. This is usually in the Avon books and there is a few different scents in this Roll On way.
This is in a little box which I would say was a bit wasteful, but at least you can just put in your paper bin. No harm done. This is in a small and simple bottle. It is a thin rectangular shaped bottle which has a small roller Ball on the top and a screw on lid covering the ball. The Glass bottle is clear and that way you can see how much is left. You would think that only being 9ml that it would get used up quick, but since you are just rolling this scent on it goes a long way.
The way Avon describe this scent is Seductive Musks and Blossoms of tiger Orchid contrast with brilliant White Tuberanthia. Not really sure all what these scents are, but I suppose it sounds ok.
This is quite a heavy scent and it is more a night time scent I would say, but still okay for daytime use too. It is a nice smell but very Musky. It lasts a good lenght of time on the skin as well,
After Rolling this on this dries quickly enough and then that way you can layer this scent a bit more if you want it stronger.
A good idea and a handy little bottle which you can take anywhere.
When my Avon Rep, Anita popped round with the catalogue again I inwardly groaned! I don't want any more Avon but she's so nice! So I flicked through book giving myself a target. 'Ok no more than a fiver, I'll have something small!' I found it and it's a new product, Treselle Rollette.
I always use 'designer' fragrances but I like the idea of a perfume I could keep 'on me' in a pocket or in a purse to freshen up all day long. So thought I'd give it a go and I've smelt Treselle before on someone and thought oh well for a couple of quid I may as well purchase it and bin it if I really hate it for the money or give it to my Mother she's not fussy she'll have anything for free and I mean anything and it'd score me browny points lol.
It comes in a little 2 tone peach box which tells me its Treselle on the front and round the back gives me list of ingredients. The rollette is a 9ml clear glass bottle in which you can see an irridescent clear shimmery liquid with a gold screw on/off lid and small white roller ball to apply with and the bottle it says Treselle. All in all the packaging is really quite elegant for Avon!
Applying it is very easy. Not too much product comes out and the roller applys a small amount of liquid to where you want it. No drips ands it's not sticky and you cant see 'snail trails' at all. (If you haven't guessed yet by the way it's a perfume lol)
The smell describes itself as Musk, Blossoms Of Tiger Orchid and Brilliant White Tuberanthia. To my nose it's a sophisticated white floral smell however sniff deeply and what I guess is the musk smell actually smells like pencil sharpenings.
Now this isn't a really heavy fragrance at all and I dont know if the actual perfume in the bottle is stronger than this but this you can only smell up close to it and breath it in. You can't smell it on you otherwise. I've sat sniffing my wrists and I actually find it quite gross to be honest, when it fades within half hour its nicer but goes from being virtually none existant to completely leaving your skin, never to return.
I like the concept but the reality is different. There are other fragrances available in this new Rollette idea and I haven't given up I shall try others in the range but this smell really isn't for me and the smell on application really is for the more mature among us. I'm just not there yet lol
If you like a strong fragrance, even if you like this fragrance I dont think this is suitable unless you bought it as a 'top up' product and was already wearing the perfume out of the bottle. This would be a great way of freshening up on the go!
