my first avon perfume that I LOVED
Now as a rule I dislike Avon Perfumes (and yes I'm a rep) and I own so many perfumes ranging from Dior, Guerlain, Cacharal, Yves St Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Bvlgari, to Elizabeth Arden and lots of the celebrity frangrances... (I am not ashamed to say haha) but this Avon beauty just blew me away, it's not super sweet or headache inducing and even my 23 year old daughter has begged me to stock up on this before avon stops trading in June in Australia
I get a definite pink pepper and Musk and for some reason a, dare I say, ever so light fresh tobacco scent that comes through, now dont let that put you off, I dont smoke and hate the smell of lit cigarettes, but I'm talking about fresh raw tobacco, mixed with the amber vanilla and praline it just works....I get a lot of comments when I wear it particularly from the hubby, only problem is it doesn't last on me for more than an hour or two, but if you can pick it up cheap you can afford to spritz freely...
Spray it on your clothing for some staying power

Subtle, sweet fragrance
I won a bottle of this as part of the Best in Beauty prize, but I’m one of those (difficult) people who doesn’t wear perfume and feels nauseous when others wear a strong scent.
I know we’re not supposed to give away our prizes, but it seemed silly to waste it, so I gave it to a friend and she opened it while I was there so I could smell it for myself.
It smelled very pleasant on her skin, subtle and not overpowering. It was a little bit fruity, but I couldn’t identify the exact fruit, and there is definitely a hint of vanilla. Her two young 20s daughters were also there and they both liked it as well.
It has a beautiful bottle, and looks and smells better than many much-more-expensive perfumes. My friend says “thank you” to everyone at BH for this beautiful gift.

A sample vial of this came to my rescue. LOL !!!
When my "Avon Lady" gave me sample of this product to try which I packed in my handbag and took on board with me on a holiday to Malaysia. Little did I know at the time, that this tiny 0.5ml vial of Avon's Attraction EDP was going to be my saviour on the return flight back home.
I'm not an expert at detecting particular perfume "notes". All I can say is that this perfume does smell sweet which is mainly due to the blackberry essence in it. I would also describe this fragrance as "modern and expensive" smelling.
I have a 200ml tube of Avon's "Attraction" Body Lotion that I have been using and I like the fragrance of that so much that I've bought two more tubes of it; one for myself and the other for my sister for Christmas. I know she'll like it too because it smells like one of the many new fragrances from Myer's Fragrance Counter though it is not. It is attractively packaged too as the plastic body lotion tube is mainly coloured gold. It had a classy, expensive look to its packaging.
Anyhow, back to the fragrance sample vial and my story. On the flight back home, I was seated between my husband and a gentleman who has obviously been ill as he boarded the plane on crutches. He moved very slowly and during the flight he had nothing to drink or eat at all. Most of the flight he spent sleeping.
I had nothing against the man and in fact, I felt sorry for him because he didn't look that well. The problem occurred when he fell asleep because he opened his mouth and suffered from bad breath. Don't laugh but I was suffering and as the Flight was full, I could not change seats.
Holding a tissue against my nose was not working either until I remembered the tiny vial of "Attraction" in my purse. I emptied all its contents into the tissue and the only way that I was able to withstand the rest of the trip was by keeping my nose permanently lodged in it until the plane landed. So "Attraction" literally filled my senses which was far better than what I had to contend with. LOL !!!
I like the fragrance of "Attraction" in the Body Lotion far better than in its EDP form. I honestly think that a particular fragrance from Avon will change depending on whether it is packaged as a EDP, EDT, Body Spray, Body Lotion, etc.
I would have no hesitation in buying Avon's "Attraction" Body Lotion again compared to its EDP. Avon's "Attraction" fragrance in the Body Lotion makes me feel indulgent and pleased. I love the smell of it !!!
Be aware that a particular Avon fragrance can smell different dependent on its packaging. Always ask for a sample when deciding whether to buy an Avon EDP or EDT.

The scent of this is like a fruity sweetness that anyone who likes sweet perfumes may love. It would be worth a try of the sample before buying. I liked it so I thought I would try the shower gel in it so that I could try it out a bit more that way before splashing out on the full-size perfume.
I can definitely smell the sweet berry-like aroma initially with it's hint of muskiness just quickly behind and then the vanilla unfolds. Those who have a sweet-tooth for perfume scents may like this.
The matching shower gel is a pearly white coloured gel in a warm gold & pewter coloured tube. If I buy the full size perfume it would be lovely to use along with this shower gel.
