This week things are going to get a little PINK on Writing Whimsy. It’s less than 2 weeks until Valentine’s Day and I have some festive products to share with you, starting with the Avon Ultra Sexy Heart Eau de Toilette Spray*.
Avon Ultra Sexy Heart Eau de Toilette Spray is a floral gourmand that comes in a glass , slightly retro-inspired bottle with a subtle design around the edges that reminds me a bit of stitching. There’s no real ‘cap’ just a bunch of mesh red hearts that snap on and form a stopper, and the perfume liquid inside is a pale pink. I do think the name is unfortunate, because I don’t really want to tell people I’m wearing something called “Ultra Sexy Heart”, so maybe it appeals to younger wearers.
In terms of the fragrance, the Avon Ultra Sexy Heart Eau de Toilette Spray starts off with sweet fruity notes including maraschino cherry, mandarin, blackberry blended a base of chocolate marshmallow. As it dries down I get more of the middle floral notes including red rose petals, jasmine petals and vanilla-orchid. There’s also warmth from the benzoin and Australian sandalwood oil. Ultimately the fragrance is very chocolate, cherry and roses, that reminds me of Avril Lavigne Black Star, one of the few perfumes I’ve actually finished.
I am impressed by the lasting power of the Avon Ultra Sexy Heart Eau de Toilette Spray, because although the initial burst softens, I can still smell it for most of the day. Personally, even though I enjoy the scent of the Avon Ultra Sexy Heart Eau de Toilette Spray, I feel like it’s a fragrance I’ve outgrown, something sweet but not overly complex. However if you are looking for an affordable perfume, or a gift for somebody a bit younger, I definitely recommend checking out the Avon lineup.
Have you tried an Avon perfume before? I was really into Night Magic growing up!
