Avon Hawaiian Shores Eau de Toilette Spray Review

I was sitting with my friend last night and he turned to me and said, “Summer feels over…” WHAT?! Dude…what do you mean?

I guess in a way he’s right. Particularly since the whisper of Holiday Collections is already on the horizon. Le sigh.

But never fear, rejoice in Summer joy with a little Avon Hawaiian Shores Eau de Toilette Spray. It’s so not going to make you feel like Hawaii, for that you need to grab your bikini and hop a plane but it does feel like a warm hug.

Avon Hawaiian Shores
Eau de Toilette Spray doesn’t exactly inspire tropical drinks, sandy beaches, and the ocean for me. I expected coconuts, maybe some vanilla, a little fruitiness with a creamy smooth base. For me, that’s Hawaii.

But that isn’t to say it isn’t lovely, it’s just not Hawaii but I still like it.

This has a faint unisex feel to it which is one reason I like it. I love fragrances that give you the feeling of getting a warm hug from your boyfriend or husband. Avon Hawaiian Shores Eau de Toilette Spray has some of that warmth.

This is a mix of sparkling starfruit, exotic island pumeria and white amber. I think the white amber is what gives the fragrance depth and and a bit of heat. The fruity and floral notes play delicately in the background and allow the white amber to envelope you in a comfortable, soothing hug, kinda like wearing your boyfriend’s jacket or shirt.

Avon Hawaiian Shores ($9.99) isn’t exactly the tropical concoction I expected but it still manages to win me over with it’s seductive, comforting warmth.

It’s worth a try if you like blends that have a unisex edge to them.

    I get how your friend feels, there’s never enough fun crammed into summer when you have to work and take classes part-time. (stupid obligations interfering with fun!)
