    Strong

    I usually don't like sweet, strong perfumes but I loved this one! It's kinda spicy sweet and it lasts a very long time. I would buy it again. — 2 years, 2 months ago

    Spicy, sweet, not for those who hate Shalimar & similar fragrances

    This is a sweet, spicy, complex, heavy scent, and you'll either love it or hate it because there's nothing green or fruity about it. In fragrance-speak, it's what used to be called a "spicy Oriental" (Shalimar was the best known of these). This doesn't smell like Shalimar, but rather like a distant members of the same family. Far Away is definitely its own thing, being sweeter, with notes of vanil...read morela bean, cocoa, spicy black pepper, and musky notes mixed in with some sweet florals I can't identify. (This is what I mean by complex; there's a lot going on in there!) I like this in very small does (it's strong and lasts a long time) and usually I wear it when I'm dressing 20's or '30's vintage but don't want to break out the Shalimar...It has that same kind of exotic aura. (If you're into old movies, it smells like something Myrna Loy would have worn when she played what the studio called "exotic" types.) Not for everyone and definitely not for every occasion, because it can be a bit heady--it's definitely not a summer fragrance!--and definitely to be applied with a light hand. I certainly give Avon kudos, though, because although it is sweet, the complexity makes it smell much more expensive than it is and not at all like "cheap perfume". It smells like something an old-school perfumier would have done with ingredients that are no longer available, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. If you like exotic, spicy scents or have an occasion to play a vintage vamp, this may be for you. — 2 years, 6 months ago
