Avon Femme is a competent fruity floral that has a legion of fans and is a steady seller. Avon Femme Icon was apparently intended to be an evening version of Femme. However, as much as I love Avon, I think I prefer the original in this instance.
Avon Femme Icon opens with strawberry and raspberry. Both are prominent, and it’s a photo finish when it comes to which is dominant. Suffice to say, this has a sweet and fruity opening which I rather enjoyed.
However, it was the middle and the base that I found difficult with this one. The middle notes (and they don’t always happen in the middle) are iris and rose. Unfortunately, I just got pink bubble bath rather than either. flower. It’s not unpleasant though. I like pink bubble bath.
The base is simply patchouli and musk and this is where it went a bit biscuit-y one me. Unfortunately, the fruit has gone a little synthetic by now and the combination of this with the pink bubble bath, andsome very weak and thin patchouli, did not get the thumbs up from me.
However, this review is, of course, purely subjective. I have a dear friend who wears any Avon scents that don’t suit me and they all smell really wonderful on her. So don’t listen to my moaning- try it for yourself. I love that Avon does a lot of affordable purse sprays, so check out the brochure or the Avon UK website. They always have a special offer on, so don’t stop at one.
How about you? Do you have a favourite Avon fragrance? or even a not-so-favourite? Do let me know. I always love to hear from you.
I got my purse spray of Avon Femme Icon from my Avon brochure. It was just £1.99. Check out Avon UK online. Opinions are my own.
