Fragrance Review: Cynthia Rowley Flower and Petal

Fragrance Review: Cynthia Rowley Flower and Petal Eauxs For Avon

Do you remember back in February when I told you about Cynthia Rowley's upcoming fragrance launch with Avon? A few weeks ago the scents became available just in time for Mother's Day. This launch date was no accident. These two similar scented fragrances have been created, one lighter than the other, for mother and daughter.

I just love this sweet concept. Cynthia Rowley recognizes that young girls can't wait to grow up so they can dress, smell and wear the same makeup as their mothers. She embraces this connection and has developed Flower Eau de Parfum (50 ml, $30) and Petal Eau de Toilette (30 ml, $15) in conjunction with each other.

Flower comes in an opaque white bottle with raised circles and has a thin, black grosgrain ribbon around its silver neck. It contains light, soft, powdery notes of lily, freesia, cashmere woods, vanilla, musk, velvet woods and sandalwood. Petal comes in a hot pink see-through bottle with the same design but it has a white ribbon and a lighter, more sheer juice with hints of lily of the valley and fresh greens.

I prefer Flower because of the distinctive freesia presence, but I would also wear Petal in the afternoon as more of a splash. And like I said before, the prices are fabulous. It's been a while since we've seen a high-end designer create an affordable luxury fragrance for the masses, and hopefully this is the first of more to come.
