Avon Luck for Her EDP

My olfactory voyage started for Naomi Campbell Exult which my dad purchased for me. Than I found myself too early wrapped in the world of heavy rose perfumes – I truly loved the Yves Saint Laurent Paris even though people still cannot wrap their heads around the fact I used this vintage rose during my teenage years. My skin reacts quite oddly to certain perfumes and I suspect it's rather thick and that's why it eats up heavy perfumes so they end up acceptable on me. After YSL Paris I fell in love with Calvin Klein Euphoria (original) long before it became too commercial. I still own it and even though it doesn't recoil with my sensuality as much these days, I'm very fond of it. It was my signature scent for years. Than came Burberry London for Her. It has been and has stayed as the signature scent of mine. People go nuts when they smell it on me and my husband adores it on my skin. I always try to have a bottle in my stash. Than Thierry Mugler perfumes came into my life – quite retrospectively, actually. Firstly I fell head over heels with the figgy T.M. Womanity, than exotic jasmine in T.M. Alien and I intend on finally picking up a bottle of my platonic gourmand love – T.M. Angel. I also adore Cartier fragrances – Baiser Vole being my fave spring time scent and as of late Cartier La Panthere stole my heart. As you can tell, I am relatively into designer scents and am venturing slowly into the niche territory as Hermes Eau de Merveilles is something I intend buying along with Annick Goutal Eau d'Hardien. I'm not a perfume snob in any way but I do appreciate a well made perfume that stands out. Fragrances from catalogue sales are rarely my cup of tea and it's extremely hard for me to fall for one of such fragrances. I'm really glad that I've tried Avon Parisian Chic as it's the first catalogue sales fragrance I took notice of in years. It really blew me away! Now I've discovered what could easily be even better than Parisian Chic – not only regarding the way it smells, I'm referring to the quality of this fragrance. Don't mistake Avon Luck for Her EDP for just another new thing – I think this one is here to stay and rumble some hearts!

Moje olfaktorno putovanje je zapocelo sa Naomi Exult mirisom koji mi je kupio tata. Potom sam se dosta rano pronasla u svijetu tezih mirisa sa dominantnom ruzom – istinski sam voljela Yves Saint Laurent Paris iako se ljudi i dan-danas ne mogu snaci u cinjenici da sam toliko opulentan vintage parfem koristila tokom tinejdzerskih godina. Misteriozan je svijet neocekivanih, nepredvidivih hemijskih reakcija izmedju parfema i nase koze a vec neko vrijeme mislim kako je moja koza deblja cim ‘pojede’ mnogo intenzivnih parfema koji na njoj mirisu dosta prihvatljivo (a ozloglasene su reputacije). Nakon YSL Paris parfema sam se zaljubila u Calvin Klein Euphoriu (originalna formulacija), dosta prije nego je taj parfem postao isuvise komercijalan. Godinama je bio moj ‘signature scent’. Iako se razilazi u odnosu na moju senzualnost tokom zadnjih par godina, ipak mi je jako drag i imam ga u rezervama. Potom je dosao Burberry London koji je bio i ostao moj ‘signature scent’. Ljudi nevjerovatno reaguju kada god ga nosim i suprugu je najdrazi na meni. Potom su dosta retrospektivno u moj zivot usetali Thierry Mugler parfemi – prvo je to bio smokvasti T.M. Womanity, egzoticni jasmin u T.M. Alienu i napokon planiram kupovinu velike platonske ljubavi koji je za mene T.M. Angel. Takodjer sam postala velika ljubiteljica Cartier parfema – Baiser Vole me opcinio a kupovina Cartier La Panthere je izgledna. Kako mozete primjetiti, ljubiteljica sam dizajnerskih parfema te polako planiram prelazak u niche kategoriju kupovinom Hermes Eau de Merveilles i/ili Annick Goutal Eau d'Hardien parfema. Ne smatram se ‘parfemskim snobom’ no zaista cijenim kvalitetno uradjene parfeme u koje je ulozena olfaktorna strucnost, umjetnost spajanja pojedinih nota, kvalitetni sastojci ali cijenim i kada mi netko uspije prodati ideju koja stoji iza odredjenog parfema. Mirisi iz kataloske prodaje su me rijetko kada dojmili ali moram priznati da mi je drago sto me Avon Parisian Chic odusevio! Sada mislim da sam otkrila miris koji smatram jos boljim od Parisian Chic-a, ne samo glede nacina na koji mirise vec i kvalitete. Nemojte napraviti gresku misleci da je Avon Luck EDP za nju samo jos jedan prolazni novitet – mislim da ce se zadrzati neko vrijeme i unijeti nemir u mnoga srca!

I think it's impossible to ignore the bottle as it's stunning – quite reminiscent of Dior Miss Dior Cherie with the pretty bow and everything. The design of the box and bottle is rather simple but they have managed to put together certain shapes and hues that really leave an impression. The quilted embossment of the bottle is really pretty and the bow is quite controversial – everyone's intrigued by the way it opens. I also went it trying to remove the entire bow but you need to be delicate with such a beauty – you only need to pick up the center of the bow. As for the way Avon Luck smells, I'll leave an entire perfume pyramid below but all I can do is write about my personal impressions. It's quite hard to put this fragrance into a category as I get white florals, gourmand notes and some of fruity/citrus notes. When you first apply it on the skin, I'm greeted by a burst of red fruits mixed together with mandarin, citrus notes whilst white flowers lurk in the background. After 15-20min I start to enjoy a beautiful blend of white flowers. Avon Luck also contains night blooming Cereus (tropical cactus plant with flowers which smell like vanilla) which gives a slight honey-jasmine tune to the scent. After an hour you start to get a smokey, woodsy base of sandalwood which blends with white flowers back and forth throughout the next four to five hours of its staying power on my skin. It's of a moderate longevity and can hold its own compared to any designer fragrance out there. It's of a moderate aura, meaning that it radiates within arm length. It clings to clothes beautifully and it's an all-round wonderful fragrance. Depending on the weather, it can appear sugary sweet when it's warm outside while I think it smells its best when it's cold and humid outside since that I feel the true power of white flowers. I'd say that it's a semi-casual fragrance, suited for both daytime and night time wear. It's not elegant or something I picture is suited for black tie events but for every day life – it's perfect. I can definitely recommend Avon Luck EDP for Her and I'm crossing my fingers that Avon continues this positive fragrance path it's been on lately.

Mislim da je nemoguce ignorisati bocicu ovog parfema koja je prekrasna – dosta me asocira na bocicu parfema Dio Miss Dior Cherie, zbog slatke masnice. Dizajn kutije i bocice ovog parfema je i dalje dosta jednostavan no ko god je radio na njima je uspio spojiti oblike i boje koje ostavljaju divan dojam. Bocica je izrezbarena na nacin koji podsjeca na step/sav u obliku baklave a masnica i rasprsivac su izgleda dosta kontroverzni jer zbunjuju ljude – sta je ustvari cep? I ja sam nazalost iskazala nedostatak suptilnosti i prvi put sam skinula cijelu masnu no to je pogresno i rizikujete da je slomite. Samo je potrebno skinuti mali cep koji se nalazi u sredini masnice. Sa ovom ljepoticom je potrebna njeznost, kako sam i ja uvidjela. Po pitanju kako Avon Luck EDP mirise, zabiljeziti cu parfemsku piramidu kako bi pregledale sve mirisne note no ja cu vam prenijeti i licne utiske. Prilicno je nezgodno kategorisati ovaj parfem jer ga vidim kako pase u kategoriji bijelog cvijeca, ima gurmanske note ali se osjeti i crveno voce uz citruse. Odmah po nanosenju na kozu, osjetim eksploziju crvenog voca koje je pomijesano sa citrusima u vidu mandarine (inace je jako volim) a u pozadini se nazire bijelo cvijece. Nakon 15-20min pocinjem uzivati u opulentnoj mjesavini bijelog cvijeca. Avon Luck sadrzi i cvijet Cereus koji cvjeta nocu, takodjer poznat i kao ‘kraljica noci’. Radi se o tropskom kaktusu cije cvijece mirise na vaniliju no u ovom mirisu pridaje medene note. Nakon sat vremena ovaj parfem pocinje da se oslanja na dimastu/drvenastu bazu – sandalovinu koja se stalno mijesa sa bijelim cvijecem iz srca mirisa. Ta igra sandalovine i bijelog cvijeca traje jos nekih cetiri-pet sati koliko uopsteno parfem traje na mojoj kozi. Umjerene je trajnosti i mislim da bi takvu ocjenu dobio i u poredjenju sa vecinom dizajnerskih mirisa. Takodjer je umjerene aure, sto znaci da se osjeti u rasponu ruku. Zadrzava se i na odjeci. Ovisno o vremenu, moze se doimati secerno slatkim ako ga nosite dok su temperature visoke. Licno ga najvise volim nositi kada je zrak vlazan i na nesto nizim temperaturama, jer tada preovladava bijelo cvijece koje volim. Rekla bih da je rijec o parfemu za relativno opustene, lezerne varijante koji je prikladan za nosenje danju kao i nocu. Nije elegantan i ne bih ga odabrala za strogo zvanicne prilike no za svakodnevno koristenje je idealan. Avon Luck EDP (39,90KMod mene ima iskrenu preporuku i drzim fige da ce Avon nastaviti ici pozitivnim parfemskim putem na kojem se trenutno nalazi.
