When it comes to perfumes, I really like the ones that Avon comes out with. A couple of years back I tried the famous Little Black Dress and absolutely loved it. Seeing the popularity of LBD, other variants like The Little Red Dress and Little White Dress were launched subsequently and this month, it's the turn of Little Gold Dress to make an appearance.
The perfume is described as a fruity floral oriental spray that opens with a bright burst of citrus from Clementine and luscious notes of Peach juice and purple plum. Honestly, I have no idea what Clementine and purple plum smells like but the perfume sure smells great!. I am usually not a fan of too floral or too fruity fragrances but I like that there is a blend of the two in this one. At the first whiff, the smell was too strong and synthetic but once it settled down, I liked how well balanced and elegant it was. Not too sugary, too strong, or too heavy but nice, clean, sparkling and yet sensual. I cannot really classify it as either a day or a night perfume because one can wear it anytime of the day. It's really that versatile and that is what I like.
Even though I like the smell of the perfume, I'm not a fan of the packaging and bottle. Perfumes to me should look pretty and luxurious but this one is way too plain. Yes it's gold and there is glitter on the lid but it's too simple for my liking. Wish Avon had jazzed up the bottle slightly. The staying power of The Little Gold Dress is quite decent. On me, it lasts for about 3-4 hours.
The Little Gold Dress is available from October onwards through Avon representatives and priced at Rs 1199. If you are a fan of floral and fruity fragrances that are not sweet or heavy, you will like this. I sure do!
