EDP Avon Life Kenzo Takada
Ever since i received the new catalogue and a sample of the new fragrance, i knew i had to have this. Avon Life by Kenzo Takada for Her is a fifty shades of happy scent, a perfume that gives you all sort of good vibes and puts a secret, discreet smile on your face.
Top notes are citruses, white tea, water lily and red apple. I think i smell more the water lily, then citruses and white tea. The middle notes are violet, japanese cherry blossom (sakura) and my favorite, peony, which i think is the boldest of the bunch. Base notes are iris, patchouli and ambrette (musk mallow).

As delighted, enthusiastic, impatient and happy as i was, because i've discovered a unique and happy scent, i must say with regret that i doesn't really last on my skin, and the sillage is not very strong either. Avon Life is more of a skin-type perfume, which stays on even two days, but you can only smell it if you get close enough, as in, really close. It's a good thing for people with allergies, or for people who prefer a more discreet scent, but for people who prefer something stronger, you may want to choose something else, even though it smells amazing.

Inca de cand am primit brosura cu mostra de la acest parfum, am stiut ca trebuie sa-l am. Neaparat! Avon Life by Kenzo Takada for Her este un parfum vesel, care iti da o stare de bine si iti pune un zambet secretos si discret pe buze, inca de la primul puf.
Notele de varf sunt compuse din citrice, ceai alb, nufar si mar rosu. Nufarul mi se pare ca iese cel mai bine in evidenta, apoi citricele si ceaiul alb. Notele de mijloc isi fac simtite prezenta: violeta, floarea de cires japonez (sakura) si preferatul meu, bujorul, care dupa parerea mea, este cel mai proeminent dintre toate. Notele de baza sunt compuse din iris, patchouli si ambretă (musk mallow).

Oricat de incantata, entuziasmata, nerabdatoare, bucuroasa ca am descoperit o aroma destul de unica si vesela, cu parere de rau va spun ca pe pielea mea nu prea rezista, iar silajul este destul de scazut. Avon Life este mai mult un parfum de piele, care ramane impregnat chiar si doua zile, dar asta doar daca va apropiati sau se apropie cineva de gat sau incheietura sa-l miroasa. Lucru pozitiv pentru persoanele alergice sau persoanele care prefera ceva mai discret, dar pentru cine prefera un parfum cu o prezenta mai puternica, este posibil sa nu fie prea incantat de Avon Life, oricat de bine ar mirosi el.

And to be fair, the fact that this is an eau de parfum and the amount of money you pay for this bottle, i was expecting a little more from this collaboration. Even Silky Soft Musk which is way more cheaper than this, has a stronger and more persistent scent.
Sorry Kenzo, sorry Avon! I love the bottle, i love this scent, i adore it, but the fact that i have to reapply this two or three times a day, makes me wanna choose something that has a stronger sillage and is way more persistent.
If you guys know something similar, please let me know. I mean it!

 Si s-o spun si pe aia dreapta, faptul ca este apa de parfum si pretul pe care il are momentan, sincer, ma asteptam sa fie un pic mai puternic de atat. Pana si Silky Soft Musk care e vreo 20 si ceva de lei, este mai puternic si rezistent decat Avon Life.
Sorry Kenzo, sorry Avon! Imi place la nebunie cum miroase acest parfum, chiar il ador, dar faptul ca trebuie sa-l reaplic de doua sau trei ori pe zi, ma face sa ma intorc cu fata spre alte parfumuri cu o rezistenta si un silaj mai puternic.Daca stiti ceva asemanator, va rog sa-mi spuneti! Really!
