Rare Gold

2015-03-21 14.44.01 (2)

Sweet, cheerful, Rare Gold (Avon 1995) is a pleasing scent with strong opening notes of ylang ylang, jasmine and a succlent peach.  Orange blossom is also quite present, adding a gentle earthiness to this composition.  And, of course, warm base notes add further dimension and depth.  While I don’t often find myself drawn to Avon fragrances, this is rare one that I do like…  It’s quite pretty (and reminds me a bit of yesterday’s fragrance Trésor actually).


Top notes: ylang-ylang, freshly sweet bergamot, and mandarin.  Middle notes: jasmine, orange blossom, lily of the valley, tuberose, gardenia and aldehydes.  Base notes: sandalwood, amber and vanilla.
