~'Avon Naturals Cranberry & Cinnamon Room & Linen Spray' ~ 'Natural Beauty'~
The 125ml product comes in a recyclable sturdy cylindrical plastic bottle with an easy finger press down nozzle. The front label is a lovely mixture of fuchsia pinks, cerise and reds with twelve fresh and shiny cranberries providing the imagery. The transparent labelling on the reverse of the bottle gives clear directions in black lettering on how to use the product, 'Spray 2 to 3 times towards the centre of the room away from your face'. Furthermore the ingredients are noted as 'Alcohol Denat, Aqua, Parfum, Vaccinium, Macrocarpon (cranberry) Fruit Extract, Cinnamomum, Zeylanicum Bark extract, Benzyl Alcohol, Eugenol, Cinnamal, Coumarin, Butylphenyl, Methyplropional, Linalool, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone'. There is also practical warning advise as, 'Flammable, keep away from heat or flame. Do not spray directly onto wooden furniture. Keep out of reach of children'.
~My usage experience ~ 'Natural Resource'~
I found using the spray so easy to use, no unwrapping, turning or twisting of the nozzle, it is simply ready to use. The spout is very flexible and only needs light pressure to release the spray. The consistency and appearance of the contents are like water. The spray is dispersed with such a fine mist and discharged around half a metre in length. Two brief burst of the spray affords the most exotic scent. The fragrance is predominantly that of cranberries, with very delicate undertones of spicy cinnamon.
I love to spray rooms with this product as a quick tool to freshen up the environment, such as when we have finished a meal. The fragrance furnishes a real seasonal feel, with its gorgeous warm tones that evokes a lovely scent during the winter months. The synthetic cranberry ingredient actually gives off an aroma that smells authentic, with its rich fruity and luxurious bouquet. The cinnamon is fairly understated for me. The fragrances combine very well, but the strength of the cinnamon could definitely do with being a little stronger. The cinnamon content seems overwhelmed by the cranberry redolence, though it is a captivating scent.
When I spray the contents into the air, the essence fills the room immediately with the most uplifting and enchanting perfume but the balmy scent loses its strength far too quickly. The odour remains in the environment I sprayed for around ten minutes before I begin to notice only remnants of the odouriser. After half an hour I can barely detect the aroma at all. The alluring scent only last a little longer when doors are closed soon after spraying.
I use the spray on different fabrics, such as curtains, cushions, furniture covers, clothing and towels in drawers. With a gentle burst of the fine mist I gentle squirt the spray about a foot from the linen and fabrics, this is enough to furnish a light and delicate essence over the items. Now I find a far less disappointing result as the spray seems to have a much lengthier longevity when it comes to direct content! I sprayed cushion covers that retained the sweet and luscious scent over hours, but the odour is very delicate, mostly noticeable when I lay my head on the cushions.
The same effect is held on the curtains, especially when I draw or open them, I get a brief gentle flush of the balmy aromatic scent. I have had positive comments concerning the fragrance on my furniture covers too. As for the towels and clothing, as they have been placed away in closed drawers and cupboards, the perfume is especially noticeable when I open the doors to the fabrics. It is a real pleasure to wrap myself up in a beautifully fragranced bath towel after a shower. The scent is far too delicate to remain after laundering but as the price of these sprays are reasonable, and only one to three burst per application is needed, the spray works out even more economical. I would say that I mainly use this product as a fragrance enhancer on fabrics, linen and clothing as this seems to furnish the best results.
~Would I Recommend ~ 'All Natural'~
Yes, but as a linen scent spray other than a room freshener, as the results last more effectively on the aforementioned!
The product is available through your local Avon representative, Avon online website, and through other outlets such as EBay. I recently purchased this product again from the last Avon brochure, campaign 03 for £1.50. This current campaign, 04, has an array of other fragrances on this product range on a great offer of 'buy 1 order 2 free'!
Thank you for taking the time to read my fruity review :~)
Summary: An affordable aromatic spray best suited for fabics as opposed to a room freshener.
