It's not often I love a perfume, but this perfume is so, so nice. I first smelled it when I made a purchase from Avon and I was given a small vial of Herve Leger in with my order when it arrived. I LOVED it and knew I would buy it - this never, ever happens!
It's not cheap, at £40 for 50ml but believe me when I say it is worth every single penny. It comes in a plain white box with a black stripe and HERVE LEGER on the front, and the bottle is a tall, wavy affair, with a silver chunky lid and a silver spray dispenser. The bottle is a soft violet blue, but is clear.
The scent - well, it's flipping hard to describe a scent but I will try. This is a strong, pungent (in a good way!) long lasting night time scent. It is NOT flowery, it is NOT citrusy, but it isn't overly musky either. It's fresh and feminine, but it's very sexy and seductive too. It's a smell men love (my husband does) but women will actually stop you to ask you what it is and where you got it from. It's absolutely divine.
It's suitable for most ages I would say (over 20 - I always think younger girls suit a fruitier scent) and is available in gift sets too with body lotion. It's not cheap but it will last you, and it makes a lovely gift too.
My no1 perfume recommendation for 2010, and there is a lot of competition!
Well I treated myself to this new perfume in the Avon range, last month, after having a nosy in my sister-in-law to be's catalogue.
I think it was launched in Brochure 15, and we are now on Brochure 17.
Anyway, it was definetly one of avon's more expensive fragrances in their range. But the delightful scent, and attractive bottle, definetly make it money well spent. There is also accompanying shower gels, and body lotions available.
The bottle, comes in a size of 50ml.
It is an exceptionally pretty bottle.
It is glass, and rectangular in shape, with two ridged sections of glass, slightly raised from the bottle, and wrapping around it, in the style of a ribbon.
With the brand label, in white, with black and gold writing, and black trim.
The lid only add's to the glamour, with it's squared of fountain style, and is also made of glass.
The scent inside is pink in colour and gives, of a pinkish colour to the glass.
The box, is a rather bland, silver metallic box, with the name embossed on to the front of it. But also consists of the same wrap around detailing as the bottle, described below, but in contrast, it is slightly less detailed on cardboard, as it is to glass.
The fragrance is delightful. And definitely suited to the young, city chic, styling. It has floral tones, of what I would assume to be lily and freeshia, but also gives of a subtle woody tone too. It is definitely an alluring and seductive frangrance, in my opinion.
Avon Markets this pefume as follows:
"Hervé Léger fragrances create an alluring, sophisticated style for today's woman that leaves an unforgettable impression."
When I purchased last month, I secured the bottle for a bargain introductionary price of £15. It is currently retailiing for £20, although a boxed gift set is currently being included in the purchase, containing an additional 12ml purse spray, and 150ml body lotion and shower gel.
The perfume is designed for Avon by top fragrance designer Max Azria.
It is definitely alluring enough to compete with the other designer fragrances on the market, and is definitely a cheaper alternative, even if it is a tad dearer than the usual avon perfume range.
It is available either from your local avon rep, or from the avon website, where you can pay with your credit/debit card.
Would definitely buy again, and if purchasing as a gift now is a perfect time to buy, when the gift set is included.
