Avon Mark is simply delicious.

Avon's Mark line of fragrances has me so excited. The fragrances are really exactly the sort of thing I look for in a perfume. I'm admittedly a perfume nut and I may not be an expert on makeup, though I am trying, I absolutely love fragrances. The problem is ever since I was a little girl I've not been able to deal with really strong fragrances so I tend to look for more simple "modern" type scents that have one or two notes instead of more old fashioned very complex flowery or musky scents.

My only experience up till now with Avon has been with their Skin So Soft line. Skin So Soft if you grew up in the south is the absolute do it all product and as a kid we used it as a bug repellent, moisturizer, sunburn remedy, and my favorite use as really gentle fly spray when diluted and put in a spray bottle on my horses, dogs, and myself when we went to horse shows. As much as Skin So Soft was a daily occurrence in the house I've really never tried any of Avon's other lines so when a friend of mine highly recommended Avon's Mark line of fragrances I had to check them out and when better than Valentines Day? So let me introduce the lineup.

Mark Pure :

Mark Pure
is the perfect perfume for the lady who wants to smell amazing but may not be comfortable or enjoy wearing perfume, or even for an all day and all night scent. I'm not sure if its just me but I tend to wear a different scent depending on what I'm doing be it a daytime fragrance, something for going out, and yes I even have a few fragrances that I will wear to bed simply for the fact that I like the way they smell. Mark Pure is one of those few fragrances that I would put on even on those days I stay in my PJs all day and lounge around the house. MM, the problem is explaining what it smells like as I cannot really discern any specific tones but it reminds me of very high grade luxury bath soap. When I've worn it outside the house I've had more comments than I've ever had even wearing fragrances three times as expensive and usually I get asked which soap I use. It just smells fresh, clean, and yummy.

Mark Earth :

If I had to choose a favorite from the Mark fragrances I have tried thus far it would be a hard tie between Pure and Earth but Earth wins out slightly but a very very small margin and that is partially because its a very relaxing scent. Mark Earth is an unusual fragrance and if I had to describe it I would say it smells like a mixture of green tea, fresh cut grass, and a slightly warm spicy tone like amber. It reminds me of laying in the fields in summer daydreaming and for this reason alone it stands out as my favorite. I consider it equally a great daytime and nighttime scent and it is not overwhelming.

Mark Jewel :

If there was a sorority sister in this bunch it would be Mark Jewel. Jewel is the most feminine most floral scent of the bunch and usually I would totally write it off immediately as technically it is a floral scent but this is not at all your mother's or grandmother's floral. Mark Jewel is a lily scent but it is blended with vanilla, my favorite scent of all, and caramel which gives Mark Jewel an unusual and really sexy presence. If I was to pick one of the three to wear out on date night or to the bar with my girls this would be the one. The lily is very feminine but the vanilla and caramel give it a sweat and almost sexy after tone. Plus who doesn't love the really pretty pink bottle it comes in?

You can check out the entire Avon's Mark line on the website.

With Valentines Day fast approaching I felt that I really wanted to share these fragrances with my readers so what better way to celebrate than give a bottle of Mark Jewel to one very lucky reader! It would be the perfect gift for someone special on your list or a special treat next time you want to feel pretty. Not to mention that most of the Mark Fragrances are around $20 so you can afford to treat yourself to one or two or even all of them!

A true friend is not a friend that you can see and know that they are there without a doubt. A true friend is a friend you truly have faith in without a doubt. True friendship is when you don't see that friend but you know that they are there and you learn to trust and believe in them…that one day you will see them without a doubt! I wa t everyone to feel this way…I WILL make everyone feel this way. Runescape gave me that chance…to know what true friendship really is. Together, we flew in the sky , over the ocean , in a dream that lasted forever! With unbroken bonds of the new existence. I DECLARE THESE BONDS UNBROKEN. I will fly with them forever in a dream that turns to the new reality.I am a blinding light made new, emptied of all preexisting darkness, and I will guide those in the darkness.Believe me..when I say I will do something, I will most likely do it eventually. I live to be the very best, not fine, not decent, good, amazing or outstanding. I live to be the very best.I burned fires of infinitism down the longest path that existed for eternity shedding tears…with my friends in the most magical and legendary lake of all time.These friends are the light that shines in the distant…you are the one in the darkness…looking for that light! That light. Is the only thing there to trust, you leave it to chance. One day you find it but it disappears. You can only have faith. That the light is still there. I found that light and I constantly lose it but I learn to trust it even more. I WILL win THIS. I DECLARE IT!!!!!!!!!!! This is how bad I want to win!

I haven't purchased Avon products in YEARS. I'm happy to hear about such a great line of fragrances. I think I'd like to try the "Mark, Pure" first because of the light, fresh soap scent. Next, I'd like to try the Mark, Karmala, it sounds yummy:)

I can see why Avon's Mark line of fragrances has you excited - they all sound fantastic! I love to wear beautiful fragrances, to me a pleasant, feminine scents defines who you are, and most definitely directly reflects your sense of confidence and style. All of Mark's scents are appealing and at the top of my list is the Mark Sassy Fragrance Mist. It sounds light and refreshing and the combination of notes in the fragrance sound youthful, hence making me feel younger than I am, LOL! I also think the Mark Jewel fragrance would be alluring and exotic and I would love to try that one too! Thank you for the opportunity to enter.
