    Default Ava Luxe Experience - Autumn / Winter Edition (Preliminaries)

    Woohoo! It's nearly that time again folks! :bounce:

    The time for another fun, funky, frustrating and ultimately fascinating week of immersion in an amazing perfume house / range!!!

    The Spring / Summer Edition was such a success that we agreed to revisit the line in autumn / winter to see how we experienced the line in different weather / season conditions. And that time has nearly arrived!! :bounce::bounce::bounce:

    I am posting this preliminary thread to give people plenty of time to order and receive their samples. Last time poor Serena was overwhelmed and had to close the shop in order to meet demand!! So I am reminding you all about this event now so that there is hopefully less chance of a last minute rush causing any frustrating delays...

    We are hoping to run this initially for one week, with the post remaining a sticky until the following month (please, moderator?!).
    I am aiming for the week to begin on Saturday 20th October. That way hopefully most participants will be enjoying typical autumn / winter weather and will be inspired to participate.

    It is a hybrid week where people can either stay the course for the entire week (wearing nothing except Ava Luxe original creations) or they can dip in and out as we develop the thread as another Ava Luxe Info thread and people can add reviews of any and all of the Ava Luxe perfumes they own or have tried. The only limit is that it would help if the focus was on how the scents work in cooler autumn / winter conditions. (Those in permanent sub-tropical environments should add their reviews to the Spring / Summer thread).

    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).

    NB: Of course, participants are free to choose which ever scent they prefer on each day. The above list is to help simplify things for those completely new to the Ava Luxe range of perfumes or those overwhelmed by the sheer breadth of choice.

    *********************
    Serena has provided me with her personal list of the Top 10 Autumn / Winter must try fragrances from her line (they also happen to be her personal favourites)!!

    Serena's Top Ten for Autumn / Winter

    Madame X
    Film Noir
    Shisha
    Moksha
    Midnight Violet
    Ambre Antique type
    Café Noir
    Amber Essence
    Fire Wood
    Patchouli Leaves

    I think a few samples of the above would be a perfect introduction to the beauty of Ava Luxe.
    So now is the perfect time to discover and explore this amazing niche range...

    :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

    EXCITING NEWS, PEEPS!

    I heard this exciting news from the lady herself:

    Woohoo!! You heard it here first, folks!!
    --------------------------------------
    Remember there is a permanent 10% off your order if you use the 'basenotes' code when ordering!

    Thank you so much Serena! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

    I am hoping that this will encourage all you lurkers and procrastinators to get ordering and adding your reviews to this thread (and the Basenotes directory) even after the week ends...

    Naturally, I'll be participating. I am also looking forward to her new offerings. Patchouli Leaves and Amber Antique came as samples with my last order as did Oude, which I adore.

    I will, however, be unable to wait til October to start wearing them!

    Please point me in the right direction if these questions have already been answered.

    What would be the best candidates for Monday Vintage from her line? I know it does not have to be "Vintage" and can be a chypre instead, but I just wanted to ask which of her fragrances have vintage feel to them?

    Are samples 1ml (0.32 oz)? (I saw 5ml EdP for $ 10.00) Are they $2.00 a shot? (Trying to do my maths here: 10x$2.00=$20.00 minus $2.00 leaves with $18.00 for a set of 10).

    How much is S & H for a set of 10 samples within the USA? For International shipping to Europe? To Asia? To Australia?

    Serena has a 'Rose Violet' in the works? Oh my. That sounds dangerously good.

    Looking forward to doing Ava Luxe again.

    I think I am going to try: Madame X, Shisha, Moksha, Café Noir, Fire Wood, Patchouli Leaves and Kama Extreme.

    She has a wonderful, much overlooked little catalogue of vintage inspired scents, many of which will be perfect for autumn / winter wear. I have not tried them all but intend to investigate further during the main week!

    Checkout her vintage types / blends here: http://www.ava-luxe.com/vintage.html

    I have heard great things about:
    Ambre Antique type
    Carnet de Bal type
    Chaos type (a personal favourite)
    Casque type
    Silk (another personal favourite)
    Venezia type
    Ingenue

    From her main catalogue I would recommend the following as great scents with a 'vintage' feel :
    Ambre Essence
    Dark Chypre
    Film Noir
    Ingenue
    Midnight Violet
    Queen Bess
    Heart of Glass
    Madame X
    Rasa / Rasa Xtreme
    Bohemian Rose
    Vamp
    Red Carnation
    Opoponax / Opoponax Intense
    Moss

    OK. The original sample size was / is 1ml (0.32oz).

    Because many people need / want more jus to experience before committing to a full purchase Ava Luxe have recently introduced a 5ml sample option.

    Prices of individual original sample sizes (1 ml / 0.32oz) vary from between $2 - $4.50 each, depending on whether the blend is from the main catalogue or the premium Luxe range of scents - which feature more cost intensive ingredients. Therefore overall costs would vary according to the samples chosen.

    For simplicity's sake a sample pack consisting of 1ml samples of Serena's Top Ten autumn / winter blends would cost:

    Madame X $4.50
    Film Noir $2.00
    Shisha $3.00
    Moksha $4.50
    Midnight Violet $3.00
    Ambre Antique type $2.00
    Café Noir $3.00
    Amber Essence $2.00
    Fire Wood $3.00
    Patchouli Leaves $2.00

    Total = $29.00 exc S&H

    An average set which did not include the more luxurious blends would work out cheaper at $20.00 exc S&H. Please note that all orders using the 'basenotes' discount code will automatically receive 10% Off their full order amount (excluding S&H)!

    I have no idea concerning shipping of samples around the globe - sorry! Shipping is calculated automatically in cart when you enter your zip / postcode. If you have any queries concerning postage costs just drop a line to Serena at [email protected]. She is great for answering queries and very very nice!

    I do hope this has been of some help!

    I'm a complete Ave Luxe novice, but I ordered some samples a while back (mostly, if not all, musk based) and I'm totally in love with Gardenia Musk. I must get round to shelling out for a full bottle of that soon...

    That's one of my favourites too, Clemmie. Funny as it was a freebie Serena threw in with the samples I actually ordered, but turned out to be the one I fell in love with.

    October 20! Count me in, with a boatload of samples and a desire to try "Silk" which I was unable to find on the site. Rats! Anyone have a taste they can send me before October? I already have a few that are on my FBW wishlist (Kama Extreme and Firewood...)

    Love's True Bluish Light
    Madame X
    Shisha

    I want to try a musk or two ... I love incense and leather scents. I'm not crazy about florals or fruity stuff ...

    Anyone try:
    Little Love?
    Sweet Absinthe?
    Patchouli Leaves?

    oh I could go on and on ...

    Kama, without a doubt. Kama Xtreme is little too much for me, but it's great if you're looking for strong civet.

    I like Patchouli Leaves and No.23. I like most of her frags, but they DO NOT like me at all. However, the 2 I mentioned are the only ones that worked for me.

    Nice musks:

    Rasa (musk with rose...Rasa Xtreme is loved by some but has a lot of civet and is a touch faecal for me)
    Love's True Bluish Light (comforting vanilla musk)
    Pearl Musk
    Kama

    There are others like Wild Blackberry Musk and Gardenia Musk that are lovely, but not all that musky to my nose.

    Take a deep breath, shadesofbleu!! It's OK! Exploring Ava Luxe is best approached like an 'All You Can Eat' 24-hour buffet...You have to pace yourself but not to worry because you have plenty of time to decide and of course, if you want to, you can always go back for more!!

    Love's True Bluish Light, Madame X and Shisha are great choices! Film Noir is a personal favourite of mine also.

    Other scents you may enjoy are:

    No.23
    Chaos type (under vintage)
    Incense
    Silk
    Moksha
    Shambhala Tibet
    Biba

    Ava Luxe has a great range of musks but your preferences will depend on whether you like your musks:

    a) clean & soapy
    b) white (floral) & powdery
    c) skin-but better
    d) dirrty & animalic

    Now my 'white (floral) & powdery' may be your HG sexy, and my HG sexy may be your 'overwhelmingly dirrty & animalic' so don't be too put off if the first few musks you try are not to your liking.

    I think you won't go too far wrong checking out:

    Nude Musk
    Egyptian Musk
    Tunisian Musk
    China Pearl

    and of course you have already picked Love's Truish Blue Light which is an amazingly gorgeous creamy vanilla musk.

    I have heard that Little Love is actually quite a sweet gourmand blend and therefore not an immediate personal choice, but those who like that type of scent do rate it highly. Sweet Absinthe is a very wearable version of the unique Absinthe. I adore the original blend so find Sweet Absinthe a bit 'safe' compared to it but it is still a delicious original blend in it's own right. I like it!

    I haven't tried her Patchouli Leaves yet but plan to in the near future! Her Sweet Patchouli is actually quite yummy so I have high hopes for her straight take on patchouli...

    I do hope this has been of some help!

    OK ... I took a deep breath and then jumped in the deep end!

    My idea was to order 6 samples, to combine them with the sample of Film Noir that I already have, that way having 7 samples for the Ave Lux Experience week. Well ... I couldn't decide on just 6 ...

    I ordered:

    Love's True Bluish Light (love the name, of course)
    Little Love
    Midnight Violet (to give to a good friend)
    Vamp
    Shisha
    Madame X
    Kama
    Sweet Patchouli
    Venus Sands (one I wasn't really considering, but I love that name too)
    and I think one more, but I don't remember for sure. I guess that is what happens in a buying frenzy

    Thanks to all for your help and advice ...

    I'll second the Ambra Tibet. Lush, sensual, and well balanced. Not too heavy for an oriental of its caliber. Creamy, light vanilla, with a dash of animal sensuality. My choice for oriental/amber as well.

    I have identified scents for each day except light musk/fresh clean day. I have Love's Truish Blue Light, White Tea, Kama, and Rasa. I have Kama Xtreme for the Intense Musk day and I would like to select something other than Kama. I am interested in your suggestions.

    I like Pearl Musk for light/clean - though I hear Linen Musk is also lovely and fits the bill perfectly. Egyptian Musk is pretty clean and light as well.

    Venus Sands is very nice, SoB (unfortunately abbreviation, lol!) Very holiday isle, but not too much so. It's sort of coconutty-gardenia.

    Dear Sir,

    For the Ava Luxe Fresh Clean / Light Musk event may I humbly suggest:

    Congo Musk
    Linen Musk - a personal favourite but may be a tad light for the autumn / winter season
    Egyptian Musk
    The Beach
    Cashmere Musk
    Skin2
    Sheer Musk

    Any of these should work for you though would lean heavily towards the Congo, Cashmere or Sheer Musk options.

    At your service,
    Jeeves

    To our resident enchanting Moon Goddess and the lovely Ms. Indiscreet,

    Thank you for the wonderful light musk suggestions. I shall take them into consideration and order sampels forthwith. I need not worry about not having a thing to wear on Ava Luxe Light Musk day.

    Gratefully yours,

    My Ave Luxe samples came today!! :bounce: I only wish I could smell them, I have a cold

    Serena threw in THREE samples too! (which I thought was generous, since I just ordered samples.) She must be part psychic, because two of the three were scents that I had considered in this order anyway.

    Bring on Ave Luxe week!

    Hmm I'm thinking about ordering a sample of Venus Sands, it sounds perfect for me. When will I be able to order a sample and how much will it be?

    Could you also reccomend some other fragrances for me too? I like fresh but fruity smelling perfumes, not to much citrus. A fragrance that catchs attention. I love Creeds Himalaya, Millesim Imperial, and the new beachy one. So a mix of citrus, beach (coconut), and fruits.

    Could you also reccomend some other fragrances for me too? I like fresh but fruity smelling perfumes, not to much citrus. A fragrance that catchs attention. I love Creeds Himalaya, Millesim Imperial, and the new beachy one. So a mix of citrus, beach (coconut), and fruits.

    A few that meet your criteria, in my opinion.
