Some of my favorite perfume scents are from Avon, and I love the special offers they make available to their customers. A recent Avon campaign had an amazing offer on their new scent, Eternal Magic. The cologne itself retailed for $24.00, but if you ordered it you also received a free three piece gift collection, which consisted of the matching fragranced shower gel and body lotion, and a gift bag. (The shower gel and body lotion together are valued at $20.00).
To top it off, Avon was offering free shipping with a low minimum purchase, and since there were other items I wanted, I placed an order and it arrived at my home in a few days.
Avon Eternal Magic is inspired by the Hollywood actress Zoe Saldana, and it comes in a 1.7 ounce clear and almost diamond shaped bottle. The Eau de Toilette Spray is a light purple color, and the cap looks like a clear crystal orb.
Avon lists the cologne as a “floral” scent on their website, but this is a blend of florals and woods. It is described as a “velvety rose and orris blended with warm vanilla and creamy woods”.
I generally like the more natural and earthen scents (like musk and sandalwood), and have never been crazy about some of the Avon florals. However, the Avon Eternal Magic is an exception, and this is a scent that I can wear with no problems. It’s not too strong and has enough of the warm notes that the overall scent is quite appealing.
Based on the name of the scent, I really didn’t know what to expect. And based on the scent description at the Avon site, it didn’t smell like I thought it would. I can detect the woods and vanilla, and even the orris, but I cannot detect any hints of rose. For me that is a good thing, as rose scents are not my favorites.
The bottle itself looks very classy and upscale, and would look beautiful on any womans dresser or wardrobe. It has the name “Eternal Magic” written in black cursive across the front of the bottle. The matching shower gel and body lotion come in lavender colored tubes.
Avon Eternal Magic is a very versatile scent. It is innocent enough to wear every day, yet romantic enough to wear for an evening out. It is a scent that has a wide variety of scent notes to please a wide range of consumers, and I for one am very pleased with this new addition to the Avon line of colognes.
Getting the cologne spray, shower gel, body lotion and gift bag (a $44.00 value) for only $24.00 is a good deal, and would make a great Mothers Day gift!
