So I made an Avon order because I felt like buying something and I didn’t want to spend lots of money. I do wonder why I bought Make Me Wonder. Oh, it was cheap.
I didn’t expect a lot from this fragrance. It is an EDT and it looks like it is a GAP fragrance. The bottle isn’t too bad and it feels “sturdy”. It is supposed to have notes of boysenberry, violet and rich vanilla bean. This sounded decent enough for $6! I don’t hate the fragrance but I don’t love it. The fragrance is very sweet. If you like sweet fragrances or Victoria’s Secret type fragrances, Escada limited editions, Givenchy Hot Couture, or Carolina Herrera 212 Sexy then you will love this. Especially the price. It is very sweet. I keep saying that because it is. It has a note of candied/pie-ish berries. It isn’t fresh berries, so imagine a berry sugary reduction. The violet is smothered out by the sweetness of the berry and vanilla bean. It also has a “generic” musky type note that sticks to the skin the longest. This is sweet like candy but not like cake or baked goods. It has a very vanilla bean-ish odor. If you like vanilla then you will love this. I think I would of liked this more if there was a dirty patchouli note or a warm amber note to mature it up a bit. I haven’t layered it over patchouli or amber oil yet. Like I have said before I am not a huge fan of sweet fragrances but I can tolerate them.
Update: I realize that this fragrance has been discontinued. And I admit that it “grew” on me with time and I now see it as a sweet “blackberry musk” fragrance. It seems that sweet fragrances have grown on me 🙂 If you are looking for a replacement, I suggest Mistral Wild Blackberry EDP. It is more expensive ($50 for 1.7 oz) but it does remind me of the Avon Make Me Wonder. Hope this helps!
