Far Away Rebel was the first new Far Away derivative in 2018 for quite some time; due to the great fragrance pyramid which made me hope for an exciting sweet Gourmand fragrance and the good advertising campaign, I was really excited:
"They have this one life. How do you want to spend it? With regrets? Apologize? Trying to copy someone and deny yourself? Do you want to be afraid of other people's reactions? Be brave and trust yourself. Underline your true self. Go your own way self-confidently and do not let yourself be put off by resistance! Accept challenges and live your life the way you want. It is your life and you have only one thing!"
So the Avon advertising department let us know and present the new offshoot in a new, more angular design, which nevertheless has the typical round shape of the other versions and the curved plastic arch - but this time it has no trailer. So far at least the theory about the new "rebel" in the house of Avon.
In practice, I first have to write about the bottle that it lies surprisingly well in the hand and can be opened and closed much better and faster than its competitors due to the much more handy closure. It is of high quality and stable and impresses in real life with rich colours and golden engraving / golden writing as on the prom pictures.
The fragrance itself reminds only weakly, but nevertheless clearly perceptible, of the original Far Away, it goes in the direction of the recently more and more popular fragrances which smell of sweet notes or sweets like for example Paco Rabanne's Pure XS to which it resembles a little bit. What I can smell above all are the black currant liqueur, the salted caramel that harmonises very well with this and light chocolate, plum and amber notes. The remaining components of the fragrance pyramid I can perceive if at all only very weakly or not at all.
Altogether Far Away Rebel was very unusual for me, because I had expected more (as with the other offshoots) a clear presence of the mother note, but I got used to the scent very quickly and find it especially (but not only) for the cooler seasons a great companion that radiates a rebellious character but also a lot of warmth and security.
If you like the Far Away series or Avon fragrances in general, I can only recommend it, there are also very cheap 10 ml pocket sprays where you can try it out. I very much hope that there will be a new offshoot this year or that the Far Away Soleil, which was also released last year, will finally make its way out of the places to us to Europe.
