And speaking of Avon parties, Avon’s 2021 Convention begins Friday and I’m very excited to be joining the 135th celebration virtually this year. I am very, very excited to get the inside scoop on this year’s Avon Christmas theme. They are always so fun. You know I’ll let you in on all the news, so be sure to stay tuned. Subscribe to be the first in the know!
I received a bottle of this in a recent Avon gift, and I was very excited to give it a try. Avon just recently launched their new Intense line of Haiku fragrances, and they all sound very intriguing.
I didn’t know what to expect with this gorgeous purple bottle. I suppose some type of “purple” floral. But, I was quite surprised. The aroma does not smell “purple” in the least. It is a beautiful blend of Rose de Mai (I looked this up, and Rose de Mai is a hybrid rose developed by Dutch breeders sometime between the 17th and 19th century (or earlier), according to Wikipedia. Hm! Learn something new every day!), uplifting tangerine, and earthy driftwood (balancing the beauty of nature, according to Avon).
I have to tell you — I really like it. It does not scream rose perfume or tangerine, but I get those notes + the slight earthiness, but most of all it is very fresh. Not heavy. I have mentioned to you before that I am a former perfumer and my nose is quite sensitive to smell. Aromas affect me in different ways – sometimes very positive, and sometimes not so much, and I sometimes have a more difficult time with florals, so I went in easily. But I must say that I can actually wear this without any upset, and actually, over the past few days I’ve found myself wanting to wear it. It is really pretty, and although the name says Intense, it really is not overpowering. I put on a gentle spray and rub my arms together slightly, and it’s very nice. I wouldn’t spray this all over, then it may become “Intense” :), unless that’s what you desire, then go for it!
You’re not going to believe what this perfume reminds me of. The first time I wore this, the very first thing that I thought of, and I know that you’re probably going to say that I’m silly, this is not a “professional” description, but I am going to say my honest opinion and what it reminds me of — You know that aroma you get when you open one of those fancy fashion magazines and they have a perfume sample inside the pages? You get a waft of beautiful aroma, and think, oh my goodness, that smells good, and I bet it’s very expensive. You know what I mean? That’s what it reminds me of! I feel like a fashion model wearing this. Super Star Jfay! Yay!
So, in my opinion, this one is a keeper. I most likely would not have ever experienced this lovely aroma had it not been for Avon graciously gifting it to me in my Ambassador gift collection. So THANK YOU Avon. I really love it, and will continue to wear this. I’m really surprised. I’m not usually a “rose” fragrance fan, but this is the second Avon product that I really love the aroma of, that has rose as an ingredient. The other is my Black Rose Body Scrub and Cleanser. That has a totally different aroma, and is really really pretty.
There are also 2 wonderful new perfumes on the scene just in time for the Holidays, called LYRD Artisan Perfumes.
The Artisan Perfumes are expertly crafted artistic aromas, that are made using the finest ingredients. These are so wonderful…
First is the LYRD Artisan Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum:
Sweet cherry blends with smooth Haitian vetiver for a captivating fragrance experience.
This smells soooo beautiful. Surprisingly, with it being a cherry scent, it’s really not sweet. It is warm with a slight hint of spice to me, and it’s definitely sensual.
Then we have Artisan Santal Musk.
Indian sandalwood mixes with magnetic white musk, creating a memorable fragrance experience.
I was very excited to receive samples of this one. I love musk and sandalwood. The aroma of this one is also described as warm (and exotic), but to me it is fresh, like a white floral or slight citrus hint. But it is definitely very nice and memorable.
One of the unique aspects of the Artisan fragrances is that they are unisex, so I would say it would be great to have a couple of these on hand for gifts this season, so no matter who you may need something for – you’ve got it!
I do have samples of each of these aromas and I also have some of the Rendezvous Paris flyers. If you are interested in receiving a sample + a flyer, let me know. I will be happy to send you a sample of the Artisan Parfum of your choice (while my supply lasts). Serious inquires only please. Thank you!

It’s all so exciting! And it smells really really pretty! This perfume is fresh and vibrant and it’s also easy on the nose. I am very sensitive to aromas, and I am able to wear this perfume very easily. It also smells quite expensive, as it should, being designed and created by noted perfumers from the prestigious fragrance house Firmenich in Switzerland.
I hope you take advantage of this special deal and enjoy wearing this beautiful fragrance
It’s a new day, a New Avon, and an empowering new fragrance to encourage you to express yourself, and live life on your own terms!
