Avon's Parisian Chic

8/30/2014


Paris seems to be an everlasting source of inspiration and indeed - everything that's referenced to that magical city somehow works out beautifully. That's the case with this little perfume we got right here, Avon Parisian Chic EDP.  Parisian Chic (50ml) is made with intent to 'make each woman elegant and sensual’. I'm especially fond of the decision to go for an Eau de Parfum concentration as it instantly feels more grown-up and of a desirable quality. The glass bottle features huggable curves looking equally swish on top of a e.g.coffe table or vanity, as well as it naturally sits in the hand. It's tinted with pale violet color while the square lid adds more structure to the fluid design. Looking at the perfume notes pyramid, Parisian Chic opens with a fruity burst, heart opens up in floral bloom and it settles for a musky/sandalwood/amber base. However, describing perfumes and feeling perfumes is a completely subjective experience so it's rather a hard task to send you my impressions via words instead of emotions. In my case, Parisian Chic is a gourmet/floral/amber type of fragrance. It's sweet in a way that reminds me of pralines and chocolates whilst I clearly feel a jasmine undertone while the base is a classic musk/amber/sandalwood option radiating warmth from the skin. Parisian Chic personally reminds me of Lancome La Vie Est Belle. This would be a perfume I'd wear during colder weather as the cool air exaggerates sweet notes without making them cloying. Lasting power are decent 5h on my skin.

Pariz je nepresusna inspriracija i zaista, gotovo uvijek kada je koristen kao referenca - rezultat bi bio krasan. Takav je slucaj i sa sarmantnim parfemom, Avon Parisian Chic EDP. Parisian Chic (50ml/23,90KM) je kreiran sa zeljom da 'svaku zenu ucini elegantnom i senzualnom'. Meni se dopalo sto je odabir parfemske/uljne koncentracije pao upravo na Eau de Parfum jer mi nesvjesno odaje dojam ipak ozbiljnijeg mirisnog ostvarenja i naravno, ocekivanja su time nesto veca. Staklena bocica je izradjena u oblinama i jednako kako izgleda atraktivno na npr.toaletnom stolicu, tako je prijatno i drzati u rukama upravo zbog oblog dizajna. Staklo je obojeno u njeznu nijansu ljubicice dok kockasti cep intenzivnije boje i ostrijih linija pravi balans i daje strukturu fluidnom dizajnu bocice. Pregledala sam mirisnu piramidu i prema njoj se ovaj miris otvara vocnim notama, srce je obogaceno opulentnim cvijecem dok je baza klasicna, topla kombinacija mosusa, sandalovine i ambre. Ipak, opisivanje parfema i osjecaja koje budi je u potpunosti subjektivan dozivljaj tako da je prilicno nezahvalno pokusavati docarati sve senzacije putem rijeci, umjesto da ih sami osjetite. U mom slucaju, Parisian Chic je gurmansko/cvijetno/ambrasti tip mirisa. Sladak je na nacin da me podsjeca na praline i cokoladu dok jasno osjecam jasmin u pozadini te onu klasicnu, toplu mosusno-ambrastu bazu koja nakon par sati isijava toplinu sa koze. Parisian Chic me podsjeca na parfem Lancome La Vie Est Belle i rekla bih da bi bio (barem u mom slucaju) nosem tokom jeseni i zime posto hladniji zrak izrazava slatke note no ipak ne do granice neprijatnosti ili zagusljivosti. Trajnost je pristojnih 5h na mojoj kozi.

Otvaranje: malina, nar, italijanska mandarina
Srce: ruza, jasmin, gardenija

The allure of Paris and timeless elegance doesn't stop at this fragrant lovely creation - I've been graced with a beautiful set of classic silver coated jewelry, also by Avon. This is something I imagine every woman who cherishes classic style, probably loves Audrey Hepburn, smell of roses, black outfits and pearls would fall in love with. Avon Kristina jewelry set consists out of a pearl-zircon necklace, bracelet and a set of earrings. I used to love pearls but ever since the tale of that real pearls bring bad luck knocked on my door - I'm sticking to fake pearls (what can I say, I'm a bit superstitious). Kristina necklace (42cm-51cm, adjustable length) features aforementioned fake pearls and on the front an intricate design ornated with clear zircons. The same goes for the Kristina bracelet (18,5cm+2,5cm) but I prefer the bracelet because it's stretchy and a perfect, quick addition to any outfit. Kristina earrings (2cm), on the other hand, are rather elegant looking, just like the necklace. I like to wear them when my hair is down as they're quite shiny and noticeable. All shiny surfaces are silver coated so that's a plus. I find this to be a wonderful present with which you cannot go wrong with. 

Sarm Pariza i bezvremenske elegancije ne prestaje kod spomenutog olfaktornog ostvarenja - pocascena sam lijepim, klasicnim setom posrebrenog nakita, takodjer iz Avona. Ovo je vrsta nakita koji mogu zamisliti na zeni koja njeguje klasican stil, vjerovatno je ljubiteljica neponovljive Audrey Hepburn, mirisa ruza, crne odjece i bisera - takva zena bi se zasigurno zaljubila u ovaj tip asesoara. Avon Kristina set nakita (19,90KM) se sastoji od ogrlice, narukvice i nausnica u kombinaciji laznih bisera i prozirnih cirkona. Nekada sam voljela prave bisere no otkako je do mene dosao mit da pravi biseri donose nesrecu, pocela sam se vise druziti sa njihovim imitacijama (sta reci? sujevjerna sam). Kristina ogrlica (42cm-51cm, prilagodljiva duzina) je ukrasena spomenutom imitacijom bisera a sa prednje strane se nalazi ukras sa prozirnim cirkonima. Isto vrijedi za Kristina narukvicu (18,5cm+2,5cm) koja mi se cak vise dopada jer su biseri nanizani na elasticnu nisku. Posto je tako rastezljiva i nema kopce, djeluje mi kao nesto sto bi se uklopilo i u opusteniji casual stil. Kristina nausnice (2cm) su pak dosta elegantne, kao i ogrlica te ih volim nositi uz spustenu kosu posto dosta svjetlucaju na svjetlu i upadne su. Sve sjajne povrsine su posrebrene i vjerujem kako bi ovaj set nakita bio jako lijep poklon sa kojim je zaista tesko pogrijesiti.
