    You seem to like vanilla, jasmine and violets as far as I can see. I'm thinking you should try Love's true bluish light and Midnight Violet if it's available.

    Please feel free to check my wardrobe for other Ava Luxes suggestions. Midnight Violet is very green almost "ashy" and woody + violet note. I also love Madame X, but I think it might be too animalic for you.

    yes indeed i read the notes on madame x, the name sounds nice but the notes not unfortunatly..

    did you tried any others ones besides the ones you own? im currently looking on the official ava site

    I've also tried Milk (which is close to Love's true bluish light on my skin) and one of the Figue scents( can't recall which one now + I used to own Rasa. Very powdery rose on my skin.

    I am very interested in Ava Luxe as well!
    Violet with civet actually sound pretty lovely for me since I can do civet pretty well.

    I am interested in trying Honey and Vintage Apple Blossom. Anyone? and, any idea of what's the diff between parfum and EDT/EDP, how different they are?

    Glad to see more AL interest! After taking off the more animalic choices, you might try:
    Amande, a sweet musky almond
    Oeillet, a spicy carnation floral
    Madeline, a sweet creamy, boozy light musk
    Wild Blackberry musk, pretty much just what it says it is
    Creme brulee, a milky carmel vanilla
    for starters, anyway!

    My Wife and I have longevity issues, regardless of strength or scent for the entire Ava Luxe line. It's too bad because Serena Ava Franco is a fabulous nose. I just think her materials lack the quality needed to stop the fast fading.

    I adore Ava Luxe fragrances! It's such a fantastic line

    Love's True Bluish Light is wonderful, an absolute HG scent for me! It's sweet and creamy but very comforting. This was my first AL scent (I think I'm up to 5EDTs and 2 extraits now) and it's still my favourite.
    Heliotrope is a gorgeous almondy-vanilla scent, it sometimes feels a little 'thin' but I really enjoy.
    Madonna Lily a soft and creamy lily, it's not as heavy and 'meaty' as some lily scents - it's light and beautiful

    The only scent I've found from the AL line that I don't love is Madeline.

    - Frederic Malle Lipstick Rose
