Avon fragrances: Buying Guide

From romantic floral scents, to musky woods, Avon have created a unique and seductive range of fragrances, all at great prices. But how do you pick the right one? This guide will help you understand which perfume suits which occasions, and how to choose the best one for your personality

Different fragrances

Avon cosmetics offer a range of different scents, all which are both beautiful and alluring in their own unique way. Their top-of-the-range scents include fruity, musky aromas, classic florals, vanillas and sensual and elegant ambers. Any scents in this range will get the attention of anyone lucky enough to catch the scent as they pass you by. But how should you choose which to wear when, and which suits you best?

Choosing fragrance for different occasions

Some women like to have one signature perfume, that represents them, while others like to vary their scent, and choose appropriate fragrances for different occasions, events and even times of year. If you fall into the latter category, this section of the guide will assist you in deciding which scents to choose in any of the above circumstances. For example, if you feel that it is appropriate to wear different aromas pertaining to the time of year (usually spring/summer and autumn/winter), you may know that light, flirtatious floral fragrances are best in the former, while seductive, musky ones, possibly with tones of amber, are more suitable for the latter. Additionally, in autumn, deep red-fruit tones are appropriate and in spring, the lighter and fresher the better.
As for more specific occasions; deep musky tones which are alluring and seductive, are perfect for black tie events and evening occasions, while playful floral scents are perfect for a summer event such as afternoon tea, a barbeque or a garden party. Remember, Avon sell smaller bottles perfumes, suitable for carrying in your handbag, so if you want to test them, why not buy those first? These are also great if you want to smell good on the go, or are going on holiday.

How to Choose the Perfect Fragrance for Your Personality

The aforementioned category of women who like to have a signature fragrance is a popular one. If you are still looking for the perfect perfume for your personality, this section will describe how to do that. Firstly, think of three words you would use to describe yourself, then try and match them with particular scents. For example, if you came up with something like "fun" or "flirtatious", then the most appropriate fragrances for you are light and either fruity or floral. If you consider yourself to be "deep" or "seductive", go for something musky and alluring. Again, don't forget that you can buy Avon's smaller bottles for testing.
