I've already said on here that far away is my favourite perfume (i even love it more than armani but shh) and it's half the price! I usually purchase the bigger bottles for about £5-8 on avon so it was obvious my mum would by me the gift set for christmas and i was frilled! because i ran out i use it all the time. I've also bought this gift set for some friends and family because there big fans as well! My cousion smelt it on me before and was suprised that it was from avon and wasnt from a big department store. So buy it for someone as a gift they'll never know it cost less than a tenner.
It comes in a cute little gift box that is easily opened in the center it also has a little tab that it easily opened and closed. if you want to keep it looking pretty. The perfume itself comes in a long glass tube with a nice elegent gold lid. It also comes with a Shower Gel 50ml and Skin Softener 50ml. They both also smell just like far away so there great if your in a rush or just want an extra scent. The show gel lasts a long time also because you dont need to use much when washing with it you come out smelling just like a flower! And the skin softener lasts a long time too if you ever run out of your trusty perfume just dap abit on your wrists and neck no one will ever know! :)
The perfume itself has a sweet soft smell strong enough to be noticed but soft enough not to coke you or anyone else for that matter. It almost spells like candy floss mixed in with honeysuckle and roses. So its great for every ocasion i wear it on a night out, going shopping or just being lazy around the house, it'll refresh you what ever your mood!
I bought this gift set for a relative for Christmas. Far Away seems to be quite a popular seller from Avon and as far as I know this scent has been out for ages through Avon.
This is a nice packaged set and although you can buy the bits seperate, there is something more expensive looking when it's in a gift box. The packaging is nice. It is a square box and the box is quite bright pink. It has glod design on it and a large gold circle on the front. It has the Far Away logo on the front and the writing is quite small on the box. I would have thought it would have been a bit larger.
In the box you get
50ml Shower Gel
50ml Skin Softner
15ml Eau De Parfum
At £8 for this set it sounds quite expensive, but normally Christmas sets are. This is on offer in the current book as 2 sets for £15 and you can mix and match with other more expensive sets. For example one of the sets is £14, so if you wanted just a little add on to someone's present, then there is the chance to do it that way.
The smell of this product is oriental, and quite a heavy scent, but it is a nice smell if you are into this kind of smell.
You can pick up these individual products at a larger size for nearly the same price when they are on offer and I do think it is overpriced, but Hey Ho it's Christmas and all that!
Nice to buy when an offer is on
When I first saw this in the Avon brochure this year I thought it was definetely one to give to my daughter for Christmas this year as she really loves this fragrance. It is very young, sweet and sugary with a floral touch to it that really suits the younger generations.
This gift set features a tube of Far Away Shower Gel, a tube of Far Away Skin Softener (like body lotion) and a Far Away EDP. It all comes housed neatly in a pretty presentation box which looks quite attractive even it is not the best quality cardboard packaging I have ever come across.
Where things start to take a nose dive downhill is when I realised just how small this set is. The EDP is just 15ml (compared the normal 50ml bottles) and the shower gel and skin softener are just 50ml (compared to the normal 200ml and 150ml). That is pretty poor value for money given that this gift set costs £8. It is on offer at £5 on the run up to Christmas but I still feel that is a little high for such small products. The tubes are not even flip top like the larger bottles are, they are fiddly screw caps.
For £6 I could buy the full sized shower gel, skin softener and body spray and get a free gift bag to put them which I think is much better value for money. I do like this product, I just do not like that Avon have jumped around a lot with the prices again.
Gift Set contains: Eau de Parfum 15cm, Shower Gel 50ml and Skin Softener 50ml /
