    Default New from Avon: Elite Gentleman

    Avon has launched a new masculine called Elite Gentleman.



    Notes: bergamot, cardamom, basil, cognac, cedar and olibanum.
    There seems to be a mistake here, where is the obligatory oud?

    Sounds good. Coming from Avon it shouldn't be too expensive.

    The notes sound interesting to me. Can a person get samples somewhere?

    The design style and font remind me of another new one 'Aramis Gentleman' - notes seem interesting

    It actually does appear to be somewhat interesting. Will get a sample from my Avon rep. at work.

    Trex: All the sources I found for it were either Polish or Russian, so it seems to be a European launch, so far.

    agree it should definitely have oud in the pyramid -- oud has finally reached the bottom rung of designers (CK) so Avon is right on track

    Fantastic looking note and yay for no oud, will have to give this a sniff. How does one track down samples of Avon fragrances then as I'm pretty sure there is no Avon Lady in my hood.

    *edit* After a bit of looking its a fiver for 75ml on eBay but is supposed to be a one hour scent even though its a delicious composition so it looks like I'll be avoiding this one as I don't need another The One to tease me with a spectacular scent and subpar performance.

    Haven't come across this one locally.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
