Casmir bomb for arms
I was never aware of the Avon brand before perfume. As far as I know there are not in shops, but only by mail order. I don't find the concept so appealing now but of course everything I get between my greedy fingers is tested... so on perfumes ;)
Far Away is probably a kind of figurehead for the brand, so I was quite excited about the test. But I guess it's probably gonna stick.
Right from the start I felt somehow familiar. But more like, "Who's wearing that tacky, cheap perfume?" Overripe peach and luscious flowers. I like it in itself but here it's too intrusive. I have to say that in my rehearsal there was really only a small remainder, nevertheless I had the feeling that I stink the whole bus together today. For me, obtrusive means that on the one hand it smells too sweet and too luxuriant, but it lacks depth, accents, elegance, it just doesn't smell high-quality to me. And an intensive and striking fragrance that does not smell high-quality has something cheap and intrusive for me.
High quality fragrances vibrate for me. You have something three-dimensional. Even the individual scents don't remain static. You take a whiff, and it's like you're drowning in it. Here I sniff, but somehow I can't get any further. There's nothing alive in the scents. Instead of plunging into a sea of flowers, I almost hit the wall.
And while I'm still pondering, which again doesn't suit me here, I remember what else Far Away reminds me of: After three quarters of an hour the flowers withdraw and it remains... CASMIR in overdose. I had written a comment 2 years ago and said that I had sprayed a bit too much and that it killed the smell. At Far Away I have exactly this, but already with one sprayer. As with Casmir it is also here so that vanilla, amber and sandalwood mix together in such a way that it has (at least for me) something of coconut. Casmir actually has coconut as a fragrance, here it is probably just the mixture. However, Far Away is too penetrating for me even with only one sprayer. It lacks the fluffiness that Casmir develops with a discreet dosage
After three to four hours the scent changes again. It becomes a little woody and green. Osmanthus probably trickles in with some delay, but something else is still there. What might that be? A variety of synthetic sandalwood maybe? It even gets a touch of smoke. And I like that for once. Unfortunately, I can only smell it on my skin.
All in all, the fragrance is no revelation to me. But the sillage is really remarkable. Also the durability is above average. You really get a lot of scent for little money. But unfortunately you can smell the lack of quality.
