Good people of the internet, Avon has some exciting news. They recently released their brand new fragrance, Far Away Rebel, and let me tell you, I love me a good perfume.
Avon has always had a wide variety of fragrances in their repertoire and each is crafted by world-class perfumers to suit absolutely every occasion.
The perfume was delivered to my office in a pristine white box, adorned with a royal purple ribbon and a hammer, which caused quite the stir amongst colleagues. Once I opened the box, it had a smaller box of chocolate inside which had to be smashed with the hammer. I must add, it was incredibly satisfying to crack that chocolate! The chocolate casing contained the new fragrance. Now, you may wonder why on earth would a perfume arrive on my desk in an ornate chocolate box? Well, it’s because Far Away Rebel uses delicately balanced notes of sumptuous salted chocolate and toffee that results in an alluring blend of naughty and nice. In addition to the sultry chocolatey notes, the scent also has bursts of crème de cassis and fresh orange blossoms.
To add to Far Away Rebel’s already impressive CV and the creativity that came with the press drop, it was developed by perfumer, Jean-Marc Chaillan, from IFF Fragrance House. The name should ring a bell with scent lovers as he is the nose behind many of the most successful perfumes on our shelves. When creating this unique scent, Chaillan said he was inspired by the woman who emanates hints of innocence beneath a layer of audacious passion.
The scent definitely embodies authenticity, courage and fearlessness. To break the mould, I hopped into a Nissan GT-R at work. The company has an official racing team and this is the car they use to race in. I felt very cool sitting behind that steering wheel with my bottle of #FarAwayRebel.
The perfume’s packaging is beautiful. It comes in an elegant purple and golden glass bottle which catches the eye immediately amongst other perfumes that follow the trend of soft pink, silver and white.
The wear time is exceptional. I sprayed it on in the morning and headed out to run errands for a couple of hours. By the time I came back home, it was still on and going strong. It only faded in the evening before I showered and got ready to count sheep.
