    I am so with you people about AVA LUXE. Serena is a genius - and the best part? Absolute QUALITY but inoffensive price. And you are an individual - without bankrupting yourself. I also have ordered some more samples and 5ml deluxe samples. They are such a great idea.

    I think I have had about 50 Ava Luxe samples (some have been doubled up when Serena throws in generous freebies!) but each one - even if they are NOT MY BAG Baby, they are excellent. There have been maybe 3 frags that I cannot wear. I also am contemplating my next big splurge - getting hot here in OZ and I love Serena's Amber/Incense scents - so I am waiting till cooler weather kicks in - then my credit card is going into meltdown. PayPal is my best friend! :bounce:

    Cannot wait for my Sin and Madeline samples. Gonna love em - I can just tell!

    Wearing Ava-Luxe No. 23 today. I couldn't wait AND I wasn't entirely sure which category this fell under.

    Since I'm new at all of this - is there an expected format for the Ava Luxe experience?

    Thank you all for your help and knowledge. You all have no idea how useful these community boards are.
    The format for the week is detailed in the opening post for this thread - just go to the first page / post.

    No.23 is an Incense / Oriental like L'Artisan Passage D'Enfer or 10 Corso Como.

    I look forward to reading your reviews during the next week!

    I guess I was looking for a bit more structure . Serves me right for being an academic at heart.

    So I am linking to the Spring Summer thread - for new folks like me looking for a model of what the posts are supposed to look like.

    Thank you so much for organizing this moondeva!

    Heck, I ran out of time to order samples.
    It is my fault; with my computer breakdown, I failed to see Moondeva's post.
    However, I will watch this thread intently for your reviews.
    This is one line that I am eager to investigate in depth.

    Oh!! *penny drops* sakecat22 - you are a lady after my own heart! Most people like to write freestyle when sharing their reviews on scents but for those like me and you, here is an adaptable structure / format to follow when reviewing your chosen scents during this week.

    What did you try? (name of sample / perfume)
    Scent Family? (incese, chypre, gourmand, floral, etc)
    Notes? (available on www.ava-luxe.com)
    Formulation? (EDP, parfum or body lotion)
    Did you like it?
    Is it a good autumn / winter scent?
    Did it illicit compliments / comments?
    Which notes dominated in the blend?
    Did it smell the way you imagined it would?
    Would you wear it again?
    Score / Rating? (?? / 5)

    Does that work for you?

    Moondeva - will we be posting our comments and such on THIS thread tomorrow, or a brand new thread that'll be in existence tomorrow?

    Woohoo! Talk about leaving it to the last minute, but my order arrived and I just picked it up this morning. I'll be trying Sin today, once I've had a bath.
    I had a sniff of Madeline as well. It smells like Christmas cake!
