The products listed below have been top sellers for the Avon company for many years, and many people will ask for them by name. This includes fragrances such as Faraway, Rare Pearls, Wild Country, Mesmerise, Sweet Honesty etc. However, Avon has recently been bought out by a major international company that has brought new formulas and brands to the table. We will therefore start off with a list of our personal favourite scented products. Note that our fragrance picks are Eau de Parfum, which means a stronger concentration of the fragrance essentials and comes at a higher price tag. We also included some picks from the Eau de Toilette lines, which smell awesome but don't last as long and are lighter - but not as light as a body spray.
FOR WOMEN Velvet smells spicy and intoxicating without being overpowering or heavy. The body lotion is thick and creamy, the dry oil spray is not too oily and the Eau de Parfum is luxurious. This is a "feeling sexy" type of fragrance set that looks beautiful in a gift basket.
LYRD Sparkling Neroli Eau de Parfum is bright and floral without being sickly sweet. The notes are descibed as "sparkling neroli, bergamot and musk" - basically bitter orange oil, earl gray tea and sweetness. This is a very long lasting formula, and includes a travel spray and a 1.7 fluid ounce Eau de Parfum.
GENDER NEUTRAL LYRD Artisan Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum is the newest fragrance just in time for the 2020 holiday season. The packaging and scent are more unisex, in a dark and mysterious manner. Elements of exotic herbal grasses, dark red cherries can also be combined with the sandalwood fragrance of the complementary LYRD Artisan Santal Musk Eau de Parfum product.

FOR MEN: Gentology does not have a cologne for men out yet, but their current products are very high quality in formula and packaging, and smell wonderful. The body wash contains an exclusive blend of eucalyptus, lemongrass, fresh herbs, citrus flower oil, rose extract, ginger, pear and truffle and your man will love it. The textured black bottle is a very sexy inclusion for a more high-end gift basket, for that classy guy in your life. Pair with the Gentology Herb & Aloe Total Care Moisturizer that has similar ingredients and is an all-in-one soothing aftershave and daily moisturizer.
