Avon's Little Black Dress - Perfume Review and Giveaway

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Once upon a time, many years ago, my mother was an Avon representative.  Because of that, I was introduced to the company at a young age.  Now, my sister-in-law sells Avon.  I enjoy getting a catalog every week and purchasing every now and then.
 
Avon recently brought back a few classic products that had been discontinued, then brought back to life.  One of them was Little Black Dress Eau de Parfum Spray.  Although it's considered a classic, I don't recall having heard of it before now. 
 
Avon's Little Black Dress has top notes of Sparkling Italian Lemon Oil, Baies Rose, and Black Plum Essence.  Middle notes are made up of Jasmine, Peony, and Rose Petals.  Bottom notes consist of  Sandalwood, Vanilla Absolute, and Musk.  I'll admit I don't know exactly what some of those additives are but the overall fragrance is appealing to the senses.  The bottle itself has a black backing and gold accents.

I really fancy the scent of this fragrance. It has a feminine, musky scent. The spray usually stays on approximately two hours before I need to spritz it on again. I've received several compliments on how good I smell when I wear Little Black Dress.  The price point is economical and the perfume can be purchased online at avon.com or through an Avon Representative.
 
 Win It!
