Avon Luck La Vie EDP

If you're a fruity fragrance lover, do pay attention – I may have just the fruity treat for you! Back in October last year, I've reviewed the original Avon Luck EDP. The warm sandalwood and white flowes are the backbone of that fragrance. They felt kinda safe (which they are) but it also was a well-rounded olfactory creation. It also had this quite solid aura and it was truly lovely catching a whiff from a soft scarf during those cold wintry days (or nights). Bringin’ out a fruity version was a risky decision, I think. There are so many fruity scents out there and I'm personally not a fruity type myself. I'm also not madly in love with any flanker out there as it proved time and time again that the original is always – the original. However, if you can be open-minded for a fruity novelty and you genuinely love strawberries – there is hope! Avon Luck La Vie EDP (50ml) is incredibly simple – it opens up with a scent of strawberries, the heart is only made of Lily-of-the-Valley and at the base you have Cedar. I must salute the fact this flanker was kept as EDP because anything less would most possibly be a mistake. Now, this is a completely fruity type of perfume and strawberry is heavily dominant. The highlight here and the reason why this perfume stands out, is that this isn't a synthetic strawberry. Here you get freshly cut strawberries (the real ones, not the fruit gum kind)/ strawberry salad/ strawberry chessecake with just a pinch of cream. Then you get a floral kick with the Lily-of-the-Valley mixing along with Cedar (which is rather gentle) and this mixture is rather dry once it settles down. This doesn't make this fragrance too sweet or sugary at all – it feels less girly as it settles down, too. Longevity and sillage are not as prominent as with the original which lasted approx 3h while this one gets at least 3h (sometimes expands to 4h). Another subtle difference between these two fragrances is that Avon Luck is yellow nuanced while Avon Luck La Vie's juice is lightly pinkish, as are their decorative boxes. The newcomer actually turns out to be a nice summer fragrance and as it goes somewhere along the lines of Roberto Cavalli scents (but less sweet). If you're into that, this flanker might be perfect for you. It's not exactly tailored to suit my preference but I'm not avoiding it – I've been using it for a while now and I am delighted by its simplicity. Great for work, coffee with a friend or family, casual night out or just chillin’ in the back yard. Very versatile and likeable. And you cannot ignore the lovely glass bottle – very pretty on any vanity.


Ukoliko volite vocne mirise, obratite paznju – mozda cu vas iznenaditi jednim olfaktornim novitetom! Nekada u oktobru prosle godine sam recenzirala originalni  Avon Luck EDP. Topla sandalovina i bijelo cvijece cine osnovu tog parfema. Cinili su se kao siguran, ne previse smio odabir (sto i jesu) ali je taj parfem na mene ostavio dojam prilicno zaokruzenog mirisa. Takodjer je ugodno iznenadjenje bila solidna aura i stvarno je bilo lijepo kada bi do nosnica dolazio topli, kremasti miris sa mekanog sala. Taj miris mi je zagrijavao prohladna zimska jutra (i veceri). Predstaviti vocnu verziju tog mirisa smatram dosta riskantnim potezom. Na trzistu postoji toliko vocnih mirisa a licno i nisam tip osobe koji ih preferira. Takodjer, nisam odusevljena pojavom flankera tj. kopija originalnih mirisnih izdanja posto je (iz mog iskustva) original uvijek – original. Ipak, ako mozete biti otvorenog uma i dati sansu jos jednom vocnom novitetu te ujedno volite i jagode – postoji nada. Avon Luck La Vie EDP (50ml kosta 37,90KM) je nevjerovatno jednostavan miris – otvara se notom jagoda, u srcu se nalazi djurdjevak dok bazu sacinjava kedar. Moram pohvaliti cinjenicu da je ova verzija parfema zadrzala EDP koncentraciju – bilo sto manje od toga ne bi bila dobra odluka. Odmah trebate znati da ovaj miris potpuno spada u kategoriju vocnih parfema a jagoda je dominantna. Ono sto je jako vazno i sto bi mogao biti najveci adut ovog parfema lezi u cinjenici da je miris jagode autentican. Mirise na svjeze oprane jagode (ne gumenaste bombone, ne sinteticku kopiju)/ vocnu salatu od jagoda/ cheesecake od jagoda uz samo mrvicu krema. Potom se osjeti cvijetna nota kada se djurdjevak pocinje mijesati sa kedrovinom (koja je prilicno blaga). Ove dvije note postaju ‘suhe’ kako vrijeme odmice i parfem uopste nije previse sladak zbog toga – potpuno gubi djevojacki stih. Trajnost i sillage su nesto slabiji u odnosu na originalni Avon Luck koji je na mojoj kozi trajao cca 5h dok Avon Luck La Vie uvijek traje 3h (nekada i do 4h). Jos jedna suptilna razlika izmedju ova dva parfema jeste da je Avon Luck u zutim tonovima dok je tekucina Avon Luck La Vie njezno ruzicasta, bas i poput njihovih dekorativnih kutija. Novitet se pokazao simpaticnim, dobrim ljetnim mirisom koji me asocira na Roberto Cavalli parfeme (ali sa dosta manje slatkoce). Ukoliko vam se to dopada, ovaj flanker bi mogao biti pun pogodak. Iako nije krojen prema mom ukusu, prema onome sto inace biram za sebe – ne izbjegavam ga. Cak mi je prirastao srcu i sarmira me njegova jednostavnost, mnogo vise nego sam to ocekivala. Pogodan je za poslovnu sredinu jer nije napadan, sastanak i kaficu sa prijateljima/porodicom, opustene nocne setnje ili relaksiranje u vrtu. Dosta je prilagodljiv i dopadljiv. A ne smijemo zaboraviti ni slatku staklenu bocicu – uvijek je lijepo ugledati na nocnom stolicu.
