Avon Viva La Vita: Viva La Spring!

viva la vita

Avon Viva La Vita is a fresh fruity floral that has enough sharpness to take you into Spring without being cloying or sweet.

The middle phase is all about the roses and magnolia, adding a feminine touch to the fruity opening.  I couldn’t find the mimosa, but that didn’t spoil my enjoyment.

The base is sandalwood and cashmere, although both were indistinct. I prefer the uplifting fruity top notes and the floral middle phase  to the base, which I found hard to discern,

Viva La Vita smells impossibly girly and pretty and I would consider getting a full bottle. I’m craving light feminine florals as winter begins to outstay its welcome.  avon femmeOver on Fragrantica,  some readers are jadorecomparing this to Dior J’Adore, but others claim it is a generic Avon scent that smells like the existing Avon Femme and Avon Dreams. I can’t remember what those two smell like, but I do have some Avon purse sprays arriving next week so maybe I can check it out then.

Stockists

Avon Viva La Vita is due for release this month, so I can’t tell you the price yet.  Check out Avon UK for news. I’m guessing it’ll be pretty good value though. I tested the EDP sample, which I paid for (75p!). Opinions are my own.
