A fragrance to share™’

The emblematic fifth element at Avant is a perfume. Quintessence, this semi-oriental floral amber fragrance, sweet, warm, with an elegant powdery base harmonised with flowers and a spicy note, makes this ‘fragrance to share’ the very essence of sophistication: A modern classic. Its sillage is unforgettable both in its depth and its masterful style. A novel of love, rich writing, an oriental feel, expressing an assertive and sensual self. 

Quintessence has distinctive top notes of elemi infused with mandarin, which blends with the zestiness of orange blossom to bring a vibrant freshness.

At the heart, the uplifting scent is reminiscent of warm moonlit walks and Mediterranean nights when Jasmine becomes its most potent. This intoxicating and sophisticated scent begins with the heady florals of Jasmine with an unexpected twist of refreshingly sweet Orris and Plum.

As for the base notes, earthy and woody Patchouly and Vanilla, Praline, White Musk create the perfect foundation for this sultry scent, defining and re-affirming a ‘fragrance-to-share’ suitable for unisex use. 

Quintessence: one of the most evocative fragrances, unforgettable for its richness as well as for the mastery of its composition.

This is definitely something

This is definitely something that got my attention. Sweet, spicy, floral and strong. Quite feminine, but quite manly at the same time making it ideal for a perfume to share!

I don’t typically like floral

I don’t typically like floral fragrances but this one was well balanced and the amber helped make it warmer rather than sweeter! Great for summer or fall

This is musky, slightly floral

This is musky, slightly floral with notes of Jasmine and Amber. It’s heady and intense yet wearable for most days.

Although this is a sexy sophisticated scent that could be shared, I personally think it’s more feminine. The sweetness of plum and creamy vanilla come through distinctively but as the scent settles into the skin the musky warmth is left behind.
It’s a walk through a garden in summer where everything is in bloom or sipping your favourite drink underneath the Mediterranean sun as it starts to go down. It’s enticing, comforting and sensual at the same time

This is a unisex scent, I

This is a unisex scent, I would saying a little more feminine than masculine. The woody notes really come through more than the floral notes, which makes the scent a little sweeter. A very sophisticated scent, but wish it was a tad less sweeter, hence why 5 stars.
