Ice Sheers Luscious Eau de Toilette
Advantages: A nice enough fragrance for everyday wear
Disadvantages: None really
A while ago I purchased all 3 of Avon's Ice Sheers EDT fragrances when they were on an introductory offer. Having reviewed two of the collection previously, this is my 3rd and final of my Ice Sheers review and focuses on 'Luscious'.
Luscious is part of a trio of EDT's which were launched by Avon in 2010 and also available are:
*Delicious 50ml EDT
*Refreshing 50ml EDT
also a plethora of make up accessories accompany the range which are sporadically available in the brochures.
Though this is the third of my reviews, it is by far not my least favourite despite it being lemon based, which isn't my ideal type of fragrance, but here are my thoughts on this and why I have been swayed..
The fragrance comes housed in an identical looking flacon to the other two Ice Sheers fragrances which is in the form of a tall, and slim line looking glass bottle. The bottle is quite basic in appearance and the only obvious feature that is apparent is the logo which is embossed in a carved manner down the exterior of the centre. As this is an EDT there is an easy to access and equally so use nozzle which is placed directly on top of the bottle. The colouring of the glass is a pale lemon which once the list of ingredients used becomes known makes the colour choice very befitting.
The fragrance is made up of the following:
*Sparkling Citrus Notes
**Iced Orange Blossom
My experience of wearing this~
As I purchased all 3 of the Ice Sheers fragrances at the same time I have to admit I wasn't really as excited about wearing this particular one compared to the other two in the collection. When it comes to perfumes/EDT's, citrus based fragrances are not my ideal choice as I tend to opt for more warmer oriental scents - the total opposite of what this was offering scent wise.
I did leave it until last to test it and I have to say it surprised me somewhat in the fact that it is not *too* citrusy at all. The fragrance opens with 'sparkling citrus notes' which yes admittedly are a little too harsh for me personally but this initial blast of tangy lemon soon starts to fade and disperses within minutes. Shortly after the EDT starts to dry on the skin and this is where the fragrance starts to open up and become itself with the 'iced orange blossom' at the heart. Although it states it's iced, I found the orange blossom seemed to add a warmth to the EDT that in my opinion was very much needed.
The fragrance ends with the deliciously sounding 'lemon pie' and this lemon is nowhere near as harsh and crisp as it's opening predecessor - it is softer and has a sweetness to it that leaves my skin smelling beautiful.
I found the overall scent that remained on my skin was one of a soft lemon based aroma with a hint of orange blossom and this lingered for several hours. Because of the longevity of the scent I was really quite pleased with this purchased as it cost only a few pounds at the time of buying but the fragrance lasted far longer than some more expensive perfumes I own so I was impressed.
If interested in buying this it currently retails at £8.50 (Aug 11') and as it is an Avon product it is available via a local Rep, online @www.avon.co.uk or Ebay always seems to have a good choice of items.
I would recommend this if you are looking for a light and refreshing Summery scent that doesn't take itself too seriously. Because of the lemon pie and iced orange blossom element this is a fun daytime scent that is perfect for throwing in bags for topping up during the day if out and about as the bottle is made of quite a thick, sturdy glass. As I stated though I found the scent lingered once applied for several hours so for a cheap and cheerful fragrance you can't go far wrong with this.
A nice enough 'cheap' scent from Avon.
