Avon Red Rose & Peach Room and Linen Spray
Advantages: Lovely aroma & Easy to use..
Disadvantages: I wish the scent lasted longer..
Many regular readers of my reviews will be aware by now that I work part time as an Avon representative when my poor health allows. This means that I not only have great access to many of the newly launched ranges and products that Avon have to offer, but I also have the opportunity to find some great bargains and deals from many of Avon's ranges.
One range that I really quite like is the "Avon Naturals Range" which has a selection of freshly-fragranced shower gels and room sprays amongst their range of body lotions and such like. I do quite like the Room & Linen sprays in the range and have tried out several of them in the past.
One such room spray that I had not tried until recently is the "Refreshing Red Rose & Peach Room & Linen Spray". I had been aware of the spray in amongst the others in the range some time ago but had never got around to trying it myself. I got the opportunity to purchase some of the Avon Room & Linen Sprays at a reduced price recently, when they were on offer in a sale brochure provided from Avon.
The Naturals Room & Linen Sprays are usually priced around the £4 mark, which I think is reasonable value but not the best, especially considering the rather neat size of the 125ml bottles. With my recent purchases however, I was able to snap these up for only £1.50 each as they were on sale.
The Avon sprays are of course dual purpose in that they can be used to freshen up either a room or your linen. I personally seldom use them to freshen up linen as I don't really feel the need, except perhaps when on holiday if I happen to have one of the sprays with me. In terms of using the spray in the room however, I find the Avon Naturals Room & Linen sprays offer something a little different to other scented sprays that I have used before.
Firstly, the scents and aromas of the sprays are usually MUCH nicer than shop-bought air fresheners that can feel quite 'false' and often carry a sort of 'chemical' scent in their tone. The Avon sprays in comparison, feel much lighter and more natural based which is why I prefer them. The Red Rose & Peach spray was one that I was looking forward to trying out, particularly as I adore the scent of peach and anything fruit-based is sure to be a hit with me.
* PRODUCT DETAILS & MY OPINION *
The bottle is not particularly eye-catching or appealing, I have to admit. Comprising of a clear plastic bottle that has a very slim, thin look to it, there is a pump dispenser on top, to allow you to spray the product easily. In the case of the Red Rose & Peach spray, there is an attractive label on the front of the bottle that is predominately red in colour, showing a beautiful red rose in full bloom. To the bottom of this image is a much smaller picture of a peach that has been cut open. The way that the product has been presented immediately made me think that the main scent in the spray would be the red rose, with an accent of peach contained within.
This turned out to be the exact opposite however, and I find that the peach is the strongest of the two scents. This is not a negative for me however, as I love fruit-scented products as I mentioned earlier. The scent of red rose is certainly apparent when the product is first sprayed, but it subsides very quickly, and the sweet scent of peach that was initially on the outskirts of the floral rose scent comes to the forefront of the overall scent, overtakes it, and carries through until the scent has settled in the room.
I would assume that the result would be the same if the product were to be sprayed onto linen, but I cannot clarify this as I have not tried this for myself. What I CAN confirm however, is that any time I have used the Avon Room & Linen sprays on linen or laundry, they have caused nothing in the way of staining or discolouration, which would obviously render the product rather useless.
I have found that using the Red Rose & Peach Room & Linen Spray has become something of a daily occurrence lately, so much so that I am fast running out of the product. I find that the peachy-scented fragrance really gives my home a light, summery 'lift' without becoming overbearing or at all 'heady' which would definitely deter me from using the product too much. Instead, I find the scent is perfectly suited to this time of year, having a sort of uplifting feeling to it that I really like.
I tend to use the spray all around my home, except my bedroom and kitchen. When used in the bathroom, I find it does a reasonable job at helping to 'mask' any unpleasant smells that may be lurking around after my cat's litter tray has been cleaned out...! Without going into too much detail, she is a very old girl and it is fair to say that both her bowel and her bladder have seen better days, as have the smells that escape from within. *ahem*. I find that the room spray works fairly well at helping to move such smells along...... and out the open window.
The one down side I have found with the Red Rose & Peach Room & Linen Spray is that the effect does not last long enough for my liking. After half an hour or so of spraying, I can barely detect the rich and fruity peach scent, which is somewhat disappointing. I have found that alternative sprays from the same range have fared better in terms of their scents' longevity, so I found the results from this version were disappointing by comparison.
In saying that however, I would repurchase the spray again in the future as I liked the scent so much and thought it performed well when used in my home, giving the room a refreshing feel that was without the sickly, slightly 'chemical' feel that aerosol air fresheners often seem to contain.
As I touched on earlier, there is a selection of fragranced Room & Linen Sprays available to buy from the Avon Naturals range, some of which are sort of 'discontinued' such as the Red Rose & Peach spray I am reviewing here, but still appear regularly in sale brochures and on the company's website at www.avonshop.co.uk. Similarly, you can ask your local Avon Representative to track down the sprays for you. I have also seen a selection of the sprays available to buy online at www.ebay.co.uk, for as little as 50 pence plus postage costs.
I would highly recommend giving the Red Rose & Peach spray a try out if you are a fan of fruit scented room sprays. For the price I paid, I have been suitably impressed with the product and would definitely buy it again in the future.
Summary: I'd buy it again, and recommend it.
