    Default Come & Party: Be a Part of the Ava Luxe Experience!!

    Hi Y'all!

    We are hoping to run this initially for one week, commencing the 21st of April, with the post remaining a sticky until the following month.

    We thought we could make it a kind of hybrid week where people can either stay the course for the entire week and / or we could develop the thread as the Ultimate Ava Luxe Info thread and people can drop in throughout the month with reviews of all the Ava Luxe perfumes they own or have tried (just like Purplebird7's Montale thread).

    Using most of the headings that Serena herself has used on her main fragrance page - the one you are taken to when you click on the fragrance subheading at the top of the front page:

    http://www.ava-luxe.com/2005/fragrance.html

    Schedule for Ava Luxe Week:
    Saturday: Oriental / Amber
    Sunday: Fruit / Citrus or Gourmand
    Monday: Chypre or Vintage
    Tuesday: Fresh / Clean or (Light) Musk
    Wednesday: Green / Herbal or (Intense) Musk
    Thursday: Spice or Woods / Resins / Incense
    Friday: Floral or Tropical

    I have doubled up some of the headings so that we can all experience, and share, at least one from each of the scent families / groups that Serena has listed, during the initial seven day intensive period. I have omitted the Luxe category as many of the Luxe beauties are represented in the other categories.

    I have chosen a list of 60 - 70 ‘Best’ of Ava Luxe samples that people can chose those that appeal to them the most and then join in during the main seven days. Below is the list of 'recommended samples' along with the categories each scent fits into:

    Hope you guys are participating in this, don't be shy some of these Ava Luxe scents are very unisex.

    Here's my list

    Shisha
    Absinthe
    Indian Summer
    Bohemian Rose (I really hate the name of this. Sounds like a Carly Simon record...?)
    Kretek
    Film Noir
    The Beach

    Not necessarily in that order...
