Reviews of Honeysuckle

Found an old bottle of cologne at a thrift store. I decanted it into a spray bottle to get the full effect. I get honeysuckle mixed with an aldehyde-like blast. Maybe it was an old alcohol smell. Anyway... Seconds later, I smelled just the honeysuckle. When it mellowed down a bit I got a bees-waxy, honey vibe. I swear I get a mimosa note here, too. A couple of hours later the base was woody.

This, is an Avon scent I don't remember owning before. I have nothing to compare it with. My old formula is pleasant, light, and breezy. I confess -- I purchased this because of the cute, little beehive bottle it came in.

On me, Honeysuckle started off a little funky, with a very animalic honey smell that was quickly joined by what seemed to me like orange blossom and some soapy musk. Given time to settle, I ended up with a standard powdery white flowers accord mixing with the orange blossom over a soapy musky honey smell. This mix stayed fairly linear for hours, doing a great job simulating a flower that smelled pretty but with an animalic growl underneath. For the record, the bottle I sampled from was copyright 1990 and had a linear flowery strongness that felt quite 80's (think Pleasures). While nothing exceptionally special, Honeysuckle is proof that old cheap perfumes smelled a lot better and more interesting than new cheap perfumes...
