Well that is the first Christmas Present that has been broken, but I am not taking it back as I broke it as it did not work. Well you would have all been wetting yourself if you had seen what had happened. I tried to force the lid off as the pump did not work and it broke and the whole flaming lots stunk and spilt over me. I smelled like granny. It does have a funny oldy sort of smell to it, like a talcy one, but here is my opinion anyway. This opinion is about Avon's Night Musk. The Box ~~~~~~ 3 inches wide by 9 inches long approximately and now I love musk so I was so chuft when I realised that Father Christmas had been shopping at Avon. The box is a tri colour box starting in a pale blue at the bottom working its way up to the top in a dark blue colour and has little silver stars on it. It also has Night Musk written on it in silver and this is the eau de toilette spray. On the back is customer service details and also the fact that this is 50ml in size. When you open the box you are presented with a lovely coloured bottle and to tell you what colour it is I will have to hold it up to the light bulb as it is a very dark one and on first appearance it looks black. Actually it is a dark purple bottle and has a metal pump action spray and a dark purple lid. The Product ----------------- Like most women I love smellies and Avon do some of the nicest ones I have had so I was pretty excited to open this. I pulled off the lid and squirted and could not see or smell anything so I did it again and again and again. The spray was not working and I called my hubby up to see if he could do anything. He played around and admitted defeated and I cussed this present. Now I could sent it back to my mate who lives in another country and she could send it back and then wait two weeks for it to come and then send it back to me but this is a pain and not worth the trouble. So I got th
e pliers out and broke the seal and unfortunately it broke some of the neck of the bottle so now the lid wont work. I have sifted it out into another bottle to make sure there is no glass in it. I have just put some of the perfume on myself and the first impressions is that it is very overpowering in alcohol content, this does not mean that I do not like it, only that it needs to settle on you skin for a bit. The feeling of it on my skin leaves a funny greasy feeling but this will soak into the skin fairly quickly. It is a very refreshing perfume, soon as you put it onto your skin you can feel how cold it is and then on contact it starts to warm up. It is a light fragrance, well it would have been if I had not just spilt most of it over the computer and my tracky bottoms and it smells quite clean. I must admit, I was a bit disappointed with it as I like Musk perfumes and especially Boots and Body Shop ones but this does not seem to have the same fresh clean smell that they have. It does have a light musk smell to it but to be fair I have tried better ones at cheaper prices. It has soaked into my skin well but I can still feel my skin a bit on the greasy side from it and would have to wash my hands, mind you to be fair again if the spray had worked then this might have not been the case. Would I recommend it? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ When I first opened this I was excited but after the initial problem with the pump action spray and having to break into the bottle, putting this aside and trying to be fair was quite disappointing and I would have expected a better sharper smell to a musk fragrance. Would I wear it? yes probably as deodorant or if I had run out of my normal favourite perfumes or musks but that is all I can say. At £8 a bottle I am sorry Avon but I would have expected something better especially as you can buy similar from Boots for £3 and Body Shop for £6. Right I am stinking of this musk
now and I smell like, well I will not say...it will be time for a bath soon and this will come off in the wash. This is now in another bottle and all the packaging is in the bin with the broken lids. Customer Services -------------------------- WWW.Avon.co.uk -------------- Oh just a little note, I emailed Avon and asked them what to do and they send the bottle back. I then emailed and said that all the smashed glass is now in an envelope on its way back to you! Do you think I am stupid enough to send a smashed bottle back to you Avon, Get a life and make sure your operators know what they are talking about. If I had posted this, this could have seriously harmed someone by cutting them. Would I purchase Avon stuff again. Only if I am desperate, Customer Service Aftersales = 0
One of Avon's oldest fragrances and one of the most popular. As an Avon rep, this is one of my best-selling fragrances for ages 30+. The younger generation aren't so keen to buy this one, I think maybe the packaging isn't fashionable enough - the bottle is dark navy, a midnight blue glass bottle with no real distinctive shape. The fragrance itself is rather heavy - a traditional musk, which is not a favourite for daywear (hence it's name). I find younger women buy this for evenings out whereas older women will wear this for day as well. Despite the price tag of only £8 for 50ml, the scent doesn't smell 'cheap' - many people comment on how expensive it smells, I think the packaging gives the price away more than the fragrance. The Eau de Toilette, Body Spray and Roll On Deodorant are my bestsellers in this range and talc, shower gel and a body lotion are also available. Of the many people I have sold the Eau de Toilette to only one person returned it due to it irritating her skin - if you do want to try it before you buy ask your Avon rep for a sample. I feel this is a fragrance for older women who are confident in wearing a heavier scent.
I have this perfume at home, but my mother wears it. It is a really nice smell but personally I think older females will perfer it. It is very warm and really musky smell and it really does last for hours. AVON products are sold at very good prices also. They always have deals are their products....so why not? A Mothers Day gift or a Christmas gift. The packaging is great too, the bottle is so nice, you can just keep it on your dresser.
I was bought an Avon Night Musk deoderant because i like the perfume. The deoderant has the same subtle smell, which is very pleasant. The problem with the deorderant is that it is pretty ineffective. It mjight be fine to wear when layering your smells for a special occasion; "night musk talc" and "night musk perfume" and of course your "night musk deoderant" but it doesn't really stand up to continual all day wear. It left me feeling sweaty and uncomfortable. I was quite glad when I had finished so I could return to more reliable products, to be honest!
I have tried lots of different deodrants, but the one I like the best at the moment is Night Musk. It has a nice scent and keeps me dry all day, and the scent seems to last, unlike some other musk ones i have used. I have noticed that other musk scents are so different to the Avon one. For instance the tesco one is quite an acidy smell, and wears off quickly. Has anyone else tried Night Musk, and did they find that there deodrant did not last as long as the Avon one.
