Avon Instinct2

Capture the wild sensuality of the moment when inhibitions disappear and the senses take over. This seductive fragrance unleashes primal instincts, empowering you to embrace the powerful force of desire. Like the thrill of a chance encounter, this intense fusion of sparkling greens, exotic camellia, and sensual sandalwood incites the intoxicating experience of undeniable chemistry.

Bundle includes:

  • Eau de Parfum Spray 50 ml
  • Shower Gel 200 ml
  • Body Lotion 200 ml

This opens as a fairly sharp green scent and then takes on a more floral tone. Not what I would expect from the animalistic packaging. I wasn’t fond of how this wore so sharply on my skin even though I am usually a fan of green florals.

Avon Instinct1

Capture the wild sensuality of the moment when inhibitions disappear and magnetic energy takes over. This seductive fragrance unleashes primal instincts, empowering you to embrace the powerful force of desire. Like the thrill of a chance encounter, this intense fusion of wild mandarin, masculine sage and exotic ebony wood incites the intoxicating experience of undeniable chemistry.

This is a rather familiar woody citrus scent. I quite enjoy. It may not be that original but I think it would be quite universally enjoyed as a gift.
