Buying Avon perfume doesn’t have to be a hard decision, but it can be – especially when you’re buying that perfume for your friend or lover. Different people will have different tastes in perfume. Also each fragrance will produce a different scent on various types of skin. Therefore, when buying Avon perfume you need to do good research and read reviews before you make the final decision.
There are 100’s of brands of perfume and thousands of scents available on the market today. If you’ve never purchased any Avon perfume before and not sure which perfume will be right for you or your friend, you should check out the Avon perfume reviews on their website online or ask your friend to see what types of fragrance they prefer or wear most.
Testing & Trial
There are 2 ways that you can try perfume: Either spray directly on your skin or rub on the fragrance blotters. There are pros and cons to these methods.
By testing, you will be able to know exactly how it smells on your skin, but you can’t try out too many different types of perfume. That’s because all the perfume that you try after the first one will mix with the first and you won’t get the correct smell of those fragrances.
By testing on the fragrance blotters, you can spray on different cards and write the name of that fragrance at the back of the cards but this method of testing won’t give you exactly how it smells on your skin either.
The best way is to try on the fragrance blotters first, then choose the smell that you like and try it on your skin, that way you can get the fragrance you like and the right Avon perfume for your skin.
Types of Avon Perfume
There are 4 main different types of perfume. Eau De Cologne, Eau De Toilette, Eau De Parfum and Parfum. They range from the least concentrated to the most concentrated. Hence, the difference in price.
Eau de Cologne (EDC) is the term used today to refer to a perfume solution with around a 3% compound in an oil and water base. It’s the lightest of perfumes & therefore the least expensive.
Eau de Toilette (EDT) is a perfume solution with a 3-8% compound in an oil and water base. It is a bit more expensive.
Eau de Parfum (EDP) is a perfume solution with a 10-15% compound.
Parfum is the highest concentration of oils, with 20-50% compound, which makes it last longer than others and is thus most expensive.
Avon Perfume Sizes
Perfume is packed in different sizes. In Europe and USA, perfume is usually measured by the ounce. In Australia or other countries, it is measured by ml. One ounce is equivalent to 30ml (1 oz ~30ml). The most common size usually is 50ml, 75ml or 100ml. Avon perfume typically comes in 1.7 oz bottles and 3.4 oz in men’s colognes.
If you are buying the fragrance for the first time, you should buy the small bottle to try it out first. If you already wear that fragrance before and you really like it, then go ahead and purchase the big bottle because they are usually best value for money.
Avon often offers small samples, or vials, but these bottles are usually for trial. It is usually a good idea for you to try those trial vials first to test it out first.
