Emprise Fragrance Reviews

I was 15 when I first used it. Having arrived in my perfume wardrobe after Charlie I used to regard Emprise as a poor carbon copy of its Revlon mate.
A few decades after that first impression, I can tell that thought was not totally right.

Charlie is Charlie and I won't discuss it as it was one of my very first perfumed loves so - period.

Emprise was richer in oakmoss and carnation preserving an airiness that Charlie did not have.
Both were the emblem of a generation and both were witness to a moment in our life when we wanted not only to dream of what to do in our life, but most of all we wanted to build solid foundations for our life.

I did.

Also thanks to Emprise (and Charlie).

I bought this several years ago at a tag sale. The lemon/bergamot top notes appealed to me, but there was something in there(I suspect the carnation) that made me sneeze terribly so I gave it to my sister. Nice bottle!
Update: Recently I asked a man what he was wearing, that smelled so brisk and unusual, and he said he was using "an old Avon perfume my wife doesn't wear anymore, Emprise". So it could work as a male scent, too!

This smells suspiciously like Charlie, and shares several of the same notes. Emprise has more carnation and oak moss to my nose, but I think Avon was copying Charlie when they came up with this one. It unmistakeably comes from the same era.

This has an Cold and Metallic Opening
consist of Lemon & Bergamot dries to an
spicy subtlety of carnation earthy orris
jasmine blooms with it's androgynous scent
that are bit masculine and feminine and
the delicate Lily of the valley.
the drydown is the usual mossy mix in with
Sandalwood and the sweetness of amber.

70's chic in a bottle i love the design
with it's 70's Futuristic Look and i also look the color very sexy like your in a Disco with orange lights around you

But Sadly this scent falls short to wow
me.
