this is almost nice but it just seems to evaporate on my skin as fast as 3 minutes and its completely gone. why? imari mystique is way better than this one but unfortunately its discontinued. i wish this lasted for hours just like most of fellow fragranticans.

Amazing longevity 8+ hours on my dry olive complexion that doesn't hold em long! Sillage is close to skin. This smells exactly like ARMANI DIAMONDS on side by side testing n actually lasts MUCH MUCH LONGER so amazing n at a mere fraction of price! WOW-WOW-WEEEEE!!!! Gonna start hoarding for sure!!! Also smells a little like GUCCI INTENSE n a sweeter version of Armani Si. IMHO of course! ;-)

This is seductively sweet, bold, and exotic fragrance. Although this was intended to be linear, the notes play each other up really well to highlight a particular quality contributing to the composition's overall character. The amber & vanilla keeps the plum, which is the most dominant note remaining intensive from opening until dry down, from getting too "fruity" sweet. I also love the hint of exoticism that the orchid note evokes. And there is something that might not be listed here which anchors the whole composition perfectly. It is a bit dry, woody, POTPOURRI like which gives this potion that ORIENTAL vibe. While it has a bit of similarity with Coco Mademoiselle, I definitely prefer Imari Seduction over Coco Mademoiselle because I don't get that rancid & nauseating note Coco Mademoiselle has. An expensive smelling perfume for a fraction of a price. Longevity is pretty good for an eau de toillete with up to 6 hours on my skin. Sillage is also good within arms length. It's another KEEPER from Avon. Highly recommended...

I have to highly recommend & praise a United Kingdom Ebay seller who stocks Imari Seduction, so grateful. Treselle Seduction was the uk twin sister version but was discontinued a few years back. Imari Seduction is a beautiful, elegant & sexy with a sweet powdery plum with musk and tempting warm vanilla the powdery dry down leaves a lingering comfort blanket but it doesn't have the patchouli note that Treselle had. Seduction is a well structured scent & has the makings of a designer scent so sensual, bold & mysterious. The compliments come rolling in plus sillage is amazing on me, i can honestly say it lasts all day so ideal for painting the town red of a evening. My favourite Avon scent by far, so now i am going to stock up & enjoy the Imari Seduction range and praise Avon for doing a good job. Maybe Avon America could have a word with Avon UK & bring this scent back.

This is a sexy plummy , vanilla. I find it rich, sweet and the epitome of purple smells. I love it. I think the longevity is actually decent too
A minimum of 6 hours on me. It isn't one of those loud perfumes though. Arms length is about it.
Love, love , love it . I think it is great for cooler weather.

I can't for the life of me see how this is comparable to Fantasy.

I have to say, I really was pleasantly surprised by this scent. I wasn't expecting to like it- I almost never like "sensual" scents. But this really is quite nice. The notes are hard to pin down, but there are some fruity notes and some darker amber-type notes. They mix well, and I found this to be very wearable. I can definitely see the similarities to Fantasy, which I have purchased and enjoy. I didn't find the longevity on this to be very good, and I probably won't personally buy it again, because I prefer Fantasy, but it is overall a nice, workable scent.

This is a thick blanket of seductive, yet comforting purpleness. To me, there is no top note, no dry down, it's a one liner that doesn't need more complexity than that, as I can't seem to get tired of it.
I don't smell a note that pops out more than the others, it's all blended to perfection.
I'd suggest to spray lightly, and on colder days. It can quickly become overwhelming- so people that easily get headaches should be careful with that one. That juice is potent. Sillage is very noticeable, and longevity... wow. To put it simply, it will smell untill you scrub it off. At least that's my experience; I had it for way over 24 hours once and had to rub rub rub for it to go away. Which is impressive for any perfume, but even more for one with a price like that!

Among newer Avon releases, this one stands for quality. I can easily imagine myself wanting to wear Imari seduction in the years to come, and keeping my little purse spray bottle handy!

As to fragrance notes, there are more than Avon lists. This is typical of Avon, so I won't spend time complaining! It should be noted that the opening accords are quite suggestive - in general aura - of Armani Code. I say this because they both have the same kind of cool, metallic vibe. Shortly after, Imari smells more purple and plummy, strongly resembling Euphoria.

To my mind, Imari Seduction is like a perfect cross between the two! It is neither as sweet as Euphoria or as cool as Armani Code. And if you look closely, you can also see that that there is more than a hint of Armani Code stylization in the design of Imari's packaging.

In conclusion, there's a lot to love in this recent Avon release. If you dislike metallic openings, perhaps you should try the matching scented powder and skin softener. Neither of these capture any metallic vibe whatsoever - they go straight for the warm and plummy notes. :)

Speaking of "plummy" notes - these are less like jam and much MORE like sweet pipe tobacco.... utterly irresistible!

Five stars.

Most complimented top 3.......I like it personally....but I still find it overpowering and it gives me a headache at times, but it is due to it's SILLIAGE and longevity which ironically is a very good thing too. Maybe other strong souls can handle this better then my weakling self.

I believe it's the orchid that does this and it does not have my typical "feel good" notes but yet....I like it. Maybe it's the plum and the amber...and the compliments. They are like stiletto heels....uncomfortable yet amazing. Also like a rebellious teenage daughter....you can't stand her sometimes, but you love her anyway. (I haven't been a mom to teenager yet by the way...but it seems like it)

I just have to use it when I feel fresh, not stuffy.

It's easily on my top 5 most complimented perfumes ever and it does have a beautiful, elegant, scent reminiscent of more expensive ones like Narciso Rodriguez...and yes, you can easily tell someone it is Narciso Rodriguez as the quality is that good.

From the description, this sounded like something I should like, because I love plum, amber, musk, and vanilla. While there was a warm fruitiness that was pleasant, overall, it smells cheap to me.

This is a very sweet plummy vanilla floral on me.
I get some kind of spice in the background as well. Over all this is very pretty, but far to fruity sweet for me and not enough floral. It is very strong and lasts all day. My daughter loves this, so it is hers now. I will keep the skin softener for myself though, I liked it better than the fragrance itself.


I wish Imari blossom was listed - I love that one.

Luckily I did not purchase this perfume blind, because I did not like it after wearing it from some samples. There was something stale and nauseating in the scent that I can't pinpoint. It made me think of perfume from 1985 that's gone off. Imari Blossom is much more my style, and smells wonderful on me.

The 'snobby' perfumista in me really didn't want to like this...and was almost looking forward to leaving a terrible review hahaha.

But alas, that isn't the case. I have a sample of this and decided to try it this morning. 4 hours later, the smell is still lingering.

I definitely agree with other reviewers about this being reminiscent of Euphoria, however the plum notes are much sweeter with this...which I actually enjoy. I've had a couple of bottles of Euphoria and honestly, next time, I'd probably purchase Imari Seduction instead. It's more complex and doesn't smell like typical Avon to me.

The longevity of this has surprised me more than anything else...and unlike the original Imari, I would feel confident wearing this pretty much anywhere.

I've been wearing this perfume since it first came out. I originally bought it without knowing how it smelled, because the notes intrigued me. Avon had a sale on, buy two perfumes for the price of one. I already had Haiku in my cart (another Avon favorite), and I decided to give this scent a try. I fell in love with this georgeous scent, that smells very "purple" to me. The bottle matches this scent very well. I love the smell of plum & orchid, and I also get the warmth of the vanilla & amber, & just enough musk to make this scent stick around on my skin longer than most Avon scents. I have a large wardrobe of perfumes, so I normally do not repurchase a scent unless it draws me in, and this scent has done just that! Luckily I haven't had to repurchase this one, because my friend got me another bottle for Christmas, but when my bottle gets low, I will be sure to get another. I personally don't like the original Imari, and I have yet to try Imari Mystique, but I definitely plan on it.

I am really surprised by Imari Seduction, I thought it would be too sweet and heavy but it's just right.
I don't normally love sweet scents, but this is nice and gentle. A little plum, a little amber, a hint of musk and just the right amount of sweet. I had a purse-sized bottle that I used in the Fall/Winter months and I soon realized how much I liked it when it was empty.

Time to re-order.

This is one of two Avon scents that I like. I am not sure 'seduction' suits it, but it is nice. The vanilla notes do not overwhelm this scent, or smell like pee on my skin as vanilla generally does. It is pretty and feminine, but not too strong. There is something casual about this scent, I generally wear this when I am going out in track pants and a tee. It is not complicated, excessively sweet, or strong. The scent stays close to my skin.

I'm only 16. At first I thought this perfume was a little too old for me, but after it settled into my skin it was more young and fruity. I love the sweet smells in it. It does not project very much, but I like the feeling of knowing that only my significant other will smell the special scent.

Imari Seduction is strong with the initial spray, but the drydown is divine. The base of this is plum and creamy vanilla, yummy! The mid notes are slightly bitter and powdery, but the base makes it all worth it. My hope is that reviewers understand that this is in fact an eau de toilette and doesn't have the strength or the longevity many eau de parfumes have. You will have to refresh this fragrance but layering does help. I consider this far better than the original Imari because I can't get past the aldehydes in that one. I recommend this to oriental lovers who enjoy the plum and vanilla combination in a slighly sophisticated manner. Give this a try, with the matching layering products of course.

This perfume smells like a dreamy mix of plums and baby powder to me. I don't really smell the vanilla, but the baby powder gives the same sweet affect. I like this perfume, because it doesn't have a strong scent. It does when you first put it on, but then it sinks into that perfect "smell it when they're next to you or walking past you" power.

I was on the way to take an exam when someone beside me smelled really good----like a mix of TM's Angel and a bit of Wish by Chopard. The girl couldn't possibly have either of the two since we live in the tropics and most people stay away from the megabomb sweetish stuffs. My hunch was telling me that it IS definitely an Avon since it is so light and fleeting, but it was definitely nice on her.

When I got home, I went to the Avon Lady to get a catalog and bought all the rollerballs of possible contenders. It turned out to be Imari Seduction. I cannot wear Angel and I don't like Chopard Wish that much save for the bottle. But now, I can wear a good gourmand that is light and has the staying power of a cologne, which is perfect here in Manila.

This is very nice, both in the EDT and the cream form. The rollerball version is headache inducing and does not give the fragrance justice.

This is a good one and something I'd carry on my purse proudly regardless if it is a cheapo.

I really like this scent. It does smell like Euphoria. Though Euphoria is stronger, sweeter, Imari Seduction is the weaker very musky version. Both smell powdery. The main notes I smell in both that make them similar are orchid, vanilla, musk, the plum is really not that noticeable for me. If you really love this scent I suggest you buy Euphoria. Projection power of this is very weak, I sprayed it 5 times all around me & I can barely smell it. Thats the only negative. I will give this a few more days & see how it is.

I thought I would like this better than I did. It wasn't bad, but it didn't stand out enough for me to purchase it. It's very plummy and sweet, but I smelled 90% plum, so it was just too one-dimensional for me. I have John Varvatos parfum, which is loaded with plum, but JV is extremely rich and complex compared to this. I also didn't get any orchid whatsoever, and that was the one note I was really hoping would come out on my skin. I love orchid! Oh well.

If that Euhphoria-like scent remained on me for more than an hour, my like would turn into love but unfortunately, it hardly projects anymore and after an hour, it smells like a fruity soap left on my skin. The notes themselves are wonderful but my skin need those notes to be amped up it seems. All in all , a very likeable scent if you are looking for a Euphoria-like sent sation!

This does remind me of Euphoria, but, it smells more like Baby Phat's Fabulosity. Fabulosity and Imari Seduction have nearly all the same notes. Especially, both have that sweet and dry plum note as the predominant.

I have been wearing this all day trying to like it. I smell plum, vanilla and musk . I just don't care for it at all. I am just not an oriental kind of girl.

Imari Seduction has no lasting power at all. Within an hour you can barely smell it at all.

Not masculine at all. Sweet plum deep fruity. Love this. I saw the reviews saying this is similar to C.K Euphoria and yes, they are definitely kissing cousins... of the same plummy, orchid, musk lineage.

After I fell in hard love with Estee Lauder's Sensuous Noir, I started trying to figure out what note it was that had me so hooked, and it really is the orchid... I went up and found "Orchid" in the notes section of this website and I swear I own the first 10 frags that show up. I had no idea the orchid was the common denominator and is what draws me.

So there. go check out the Orchid note, see what scents are listed, and you may find yourself as someone also drawn to this note.

For 5 bucks on ebay I also got the deodorant, powder and body lotion. I applied all of them after showering, then sprayed on the perfume (pretty liberally) and it lasted a good 5-6 hours which, for Avon, is waaaay above average longevity I'm sure. So, for less than 20 bucks (2 trips to Starbucks), I'd say this was as good a deal as any out there. Especially when I hate paying full price for the C.K. Euphoria. And for those of you who can't plunk down the cash for CK, I'd say you will be happy to purchase this in the interim.

Nope, nothing masculine about this at all. Orchid and plummy at the top, orchid and vanilla musk during the dry down...very pretty lightly sweet powdery sensual plum at the end. Love it.

Edit: I have found this also to be a "Kissin' Cousin" of BBW's Dark Kiss. I put on the Avon I.S. lotion, powder and deodorant, then spritz some BBW D.K body mist, and voila! I smell awesome today!

A weaker version of CK Euphoria, perhaps, but when you can get (frequently on special) a scented deodorant, body powder, shower gel, body lotion and EDP all for around $14.99 you can spray & layer to your hearts content and you will smell fabulous for a long time. This is a complex scent and it is NOTHING like the original Imari which in my opinion (and my grandmother loved the original which smelled divine on her!, sorry Grammy!...). It is warm, rich, fruity and sensual. I can't wait to get mine in the mail. I am also looking forward to trying the Imari Mystique which I have heard is divine with its' beguiling honey note. Besitos! xo

One of my very first perfumes. Imari seduction is like a weak version of Calvin Klein's Euphoria but it's still lovely. I can definitely detect the orchid, plum, and amber in this. Lovely but weak, and the longevity is about 3-4 hours for me which is pretty decent, although I have to press my nose deeply into my wrist in order to smell the scent so I doubt anyone around me can smell it which is totally fine with me since I feel slightly embarrassed when people around me start sniffing around and asking "Do you smell that?" every five seconds. This perfume (or eau de toilette that I have) isn't my absolute favorite, but I still find it a good nighttime pretty scent, perfect for nighttime dates :)

I bought this one recently because it was readily available with my Avon representative. Its very dilute in concentration but the smell is evolving, complex and multi-faceted like a tiny little diamond. It reminds me of certain other popular scents like Angel, Euphoria, Black XS but only sad part about Imari Seduction is that its a very watered down version of a good scent. I have to get very close to my wrist to detect any scent at all. Or maybe others can smell it better than myself while its on me, I don't know. But what can one expect from a scent that's so inexpensive ? And although its dilute, the overall composition is good. Its sweet and fruity and somewhat masculine, but that only adds slightly more strength of character to the scent. Its sweet, fruity-floral, deep, a bit dark, somewhat sexy. But need to re-apply. The bottle is so compact, I can easily slip it somewhere in my handbag. Not bad.

For me the original Imari Seduction just didn't work with my chemistry but this one is perfect. It does keep reminding me of Calvin Klein's Euphoria which is one of my favorites. That plum and orchid is an awesome match.

My mom has the regular lotion and when she would wear it it would smell like a lovely spicy, floral plum. So i decided to get both the perfume and the body butter. Unfortunately, with my body chemistry it smells too musky. I still pick up the spicy plummy scent but it can be a bit overbearing the first 15 minutes you have it on. I still do like it but i have to be in the mood to wear.

Lasting power : 3-5 hours

Sillage: 2 hours

Overall: 7/10

Really soft, plush creamy plums. I really need to layer all of the products, or I cannot smell it as much as I like to. When thoroughly layered, is very nice.

Very subtle & very sexy. Like a creamy, soft CK's Euphoria.

I decided to try Imari Seduction when I saw it on sale in the avon brochure...glad I did, my husband loves this scent on me. Got this in a three piece set that was under $15.00...15ml EDT purse spray,150ml perfumed skin softener & shimmering body powder.I really like oriental-woody scents, this one is fruity-oriental...not usually something I wear...but I really do like it! Wish it came in EDP though...I'll be ordering the 50ml bottle,shower gel & body lotion.The Avon fragrance I like best is Imari Mystique... a beautiful woody/oriental.Not usually a fan of Avon...but,I think they are getting better.

Plum Heaven! to:Anorton1965
You are ever so right! It reminds me ever so much of Lolita Lempika in a very understated way. The sparkly, warm and elegantly fruity scent will indeed be layered with my beloved L.L since the basic notes are in accord. It begins with rich plums and spices, wraps me up in a velvety aroma i find comforting for Wintertime and especially xmas time (imho ) . The vanilla is a warm one- not a scream in your face synthetic syrupy one. The amber and musk are very faint though during drydown. My only disapointment is that it is so faint and short-lasting on me ( I need strong and potent fragrances for them to agree with my chemistry). I love the sensual aura of this fragrance which is awesome for day or night and leaves a clean, slightly soapy sillage on me. All in all, an 8 for a skin fragrance from avon xxxx

I've bought John Varvatos lately and I can definitely see the similarity, as Mad-Lainey pointed out.
It has less sillage though, and it's somewhat "less thick" on me than J.V.
J.V smells like a sweet liqueur, probably because of the honey+fruits combo, while I.S. is gentler,and somewhat muskier.

Imari is a beautiful combination of plum, orchid and warm amber.
I agree that it shares certain similarities with Coco Mademoiselle.
It also strongly reminds me of John Varvatos signature.
It makes a perfect winter and autumn fragrance; it is rich, sexy and enveloping.
The opening is definitely oriental but after 15 minutes it becomes chypre fruity and stays that way for the next 3 hours.
Considering it is only an eau de toilette, it has a decent staying power, about 5 hours.
The silage is gentle but I do get lovely whiffs for the first 3 hours.
Imari is a great fragrance for a confident and sexy woman.
The bottle cap is tacky.
Overall, 9/10.
Well done, Mr Fremont.

Yesterday I wore Imari Seduction and perhaps the weather(humid and rainy) was the reason and my chemistry but I really smelt Coco Mademoiselle on me...so it would be nice if I like Coco Mademoiselle but unfortunately I really hate it.:( So I just wanted wash it off .

Otherwise Imari Seduction is a nice scent, perfectly good if you looking for something similar and cheaper alternative of Coco Mademoiselle.

Maybe just my skin chemistry played with me yesterday but I'm afraid that case was the last chance for this fragrance..:(

This fragrance is deceiving. It opens on my skin quite strong with a sharp sultry floral. The dry down is a beautiful soft vanilla musky fruity scent. It's not overpowering, just a wonderful fruity/oriental alternative to the usual floral/oriental. Um...oh yeah...and it's easy on the purse strings!

I love it! Warm and elegant, it doesn't smell "old lady" on my skin at all.
Even if I haven't smelled TM Angel in a year, as soon as I sprayed Imari S. it reminded me of it, so I might be wrong, but this was my first impression.

I've smelt this fragrance in Avon brochures and liked it. Does anyone know if they sell this Fragrance as a EDP? I think the fragrance is to nice to just be sold as a EDT.

much more elegant than I imagined a flanker would be. it has just the right amount of sweetness, but the drydown is the best part. very happy to receive this as a gift.

Love this one. Surprisingly good for an el cheapo!

Soft, plummy, creamy, sensual & elegant, far from cheap, and great longevity.

I used up the whole bottle pretty quickly.....it is a good idea to have a few of these that you can spray as often and as liberally as you want....I tend to do this with all of my faves, but I sometimes try to cut perfume 'corners' this way...

Avon has a few surprises like this...Rare Gold is one of their best....now THAT'S a classy one!

I ordered a purse size of this blindly, mainly out of curiosity. There is so much controversy in the reviews here - some think it is similar to Chance (which I don't like), others think it is similar to Gucci (which I greatly dislike), yet others say it is close to Coco Mademoiselle (which I love). Obviously it smells different on different types of skin, so I am majorly curious to see what it will be like on me. Will post an update when I get the perfume.

Update - Have it now. It's ok but nothing to have me go WOW. Very citrusy at first(which is not good in my books). If I have to compare it to the three perfumes mentioned above, I'd say it comes closest to Chance in its top notes (though the resemblance is only slight). Nothing like Gucci and certainly nothing like Coco Mademoiaselle, not on me at least. The middle notes are mainly fruity - plume is prominent there. The base is mostly vanilla with some tart (citrus) hint. Actually the dry down is quite similar to Pink Sugar.

this is quite an interesting perfume and dry down is simply magic. i think i'm gonna buy this as the one was given by my sister. i think this imari seduction leaves up to its name and is really seductive. Cheap and its a value for money.

Imari Seduction is how I wished Kat Von D's Sinner had been - plum and florals without patchouli in the base. I really loved the juicy opening of Sinner, but the patchouli dry down was a personal no-go. Imari Seduction has a gentle spicy base w/ no sickening aftertaste for me. I'm not saying these two perfumes are dupes - only that Avon's satisfies my urge for a spicy plum.

Not a huge fan of the original Imari (on myself), I was skeptical when I saw this debut in 2007. Until I smelled the scented page in a brochure and bought it...in the three piece set.

This opens very fruity with a lovely plum note, dark and sweet. Not fresh and fruity, but more darkly sweet with fruitiness. The orchid note here is quite nice and a tad dry and not as full as other orchid type scents. In this, it is more restrained; but still oriental and very femme. During the opening to the heart, I detect something vaguely synthetic that lingers on my skin (yet disappears after a few seconds on paper). The drydown is great with vanilla's dark smoothness, amber's warm glow and a sultry musk. This is very seductive, compared to the original. A tad darker and less incensey. It is delicious, but would most likely be better on someone else. A very modern take on Imari, with a bit more emphasis on the dark fruits and orchid. Less spicy than the orignal, far less powerful but a bit more naughty...and yummier!

Sillage: okay
Longevity: decent
Overall: 3/5

This is something I knew was gonna be feminine but bought it anyway, being a big sucker for orientals and orchids. It does not "work" on me (Mother said: "uuh, NO!") but I do really like the scent a great deal. The face of this is very much apropos as it smells like something an ingenue in a dark jazz club would wear...

I'm very pleased with this blind purchase. Though when I first tried this fragrance, it was summer and it was too heavy for me to pull it off then. I really recommend you give this a chance during winter, for it requires cold temperatures to retain its fresh/juicy/spicy quality.

It opens with juicy plum that is rounded by a light vanilla in the background. At this phase, my nose could detect only a hint of spice. Then about 20 minutes later, orchid came out to the surface. At the heart, this is a plummy soft and spiced orchid perfume. During dry down, the juiciness of the fruity opening was completely replaced by the sweet, ambery orchid with a hint of vanilla and musk.

Sillage: Medium
Projection: Medium
Staying power: 3-4 hours
Olfactive group: Fruity Floriental

This is a VERY SEXY perfume that probably is best used for special occasions and intimate settings. Though if you can pull it off at work or casually, more power to you!

Make sure you test before you buy. (Avon has money back guarantee!) ;o)

After reading so may positive reviews on this one, I decided to try the purse-size spray and body lotion. But, I was never "wowed" by this one(and I wore this about ten times to see), expecting some sort of sexy vibe to come over me after applying it. I liked the opening the most--the warm, juicy plumminess of it all, but ultimately, I felt this scent is just not "me". There is something too generic about it-as if I have smelled this scent before...

This perfume is a nice plummy aroma with spices. Because of this mixture of spices, reminds me a bit of Yves Rocher So elixir. Very nice frag, I like it.
I also like the design of the bottle.

This seems more like a floral/fruity than an oriental. The spicy plum jumps right out at the beginning. The musk is very moderate and tames the sweetness of the plum and vanilla. It is a very simple fragrance, yet it is very appealing. As Nyoka said, you cannot beat the value.

One more thing, it has great staying power unlike many of the Avons. It would make a good romantic or intimate fragrance; yet, could be worn anytime.

It's a "fruity oriental" Lovely spicy plum notes. It's sweet and musky at the same time. It reminds me somewhat of
CK's Sweet Dreams Realities.
It's a real feel good perfume, to cuddle down with. This is my favorite of all the Avon perfumes. It lasts several hours and my husband even noticed and said it smelled very good.

Warm and sweet. Although Imari Seduction has exotic elements, I would say it is more fruity than oriental. The plum and vanilla scent is quite dominant. Loud at first but dries down to a delicious plum-vanilla scent that lasts for several hours.

Nice fragrance. Reminds me of Lolita Lempicka at first sniff. During the dry down, the scent gets a little more tame.

I can still smell the plum and the floral with just a hint of vanilla.

Medium to light sillage, and medium lasting power. Lasting power is increased when layered with the body lotion.

I'm happy I purchased this one. Lovely scent.

I quite like Imari Seduction. It has a deliciously oriental and jammy-like feel to it.

The plum note in Imari Seduction is luscious and rich, not nauseating or synthetic in the slightest. The vanilla adds a touch of warmth and sweetness that is very enjoyable. I actually think this fragrance is a little similar to Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture, it even has a drydown that is somewhat similar to Britney Spears' Fantasy.

As you may have guessed, Imari Seduction is quite sweet and fruity. It's not unpleasant in my opinion and I rather like scents of this kind.

There is a deliciously exotic note of orchid that arises every now and then to entice me, however the vanilla, which turns rather syrupy towards the drydown, overshadows the rich floral note.

The packaging is rather lovely and the images very true to portraying the scent itself. One can almost sense the juicy plum before smelling Imari Seduction.

Wearing this fragrance makes me feel sexy and exotic. I was rather disappointed when I realised that the lasting strength wasn't all that impressive. However this fragrance has urged me to try the original Imari and other Avon scents.

To me, Imari Seduction different from Imari classic. Before trying this, i thought this is a 'sexy' scent but when i tried it yesterday, i'm dissapointed. This is just another sweet perfume. I'll think twice before buy it.

Looking at the ingredients, its marketing, and the original Imari, I would have never thought of this, but, this is a yummy, fruity scent.

Something in the lines of Britney Spears Believe, but more concentrated, not as watery, and Juicy Couture, with a tiny hint of something spicy that can hardly be detected.

But most of all, its chemical sweetness reminds me of Euphoria from CK. It shares the notes Orchid, Musk, and Amber with Euphoria.

Lasting power is 4-5 hours, good for its price.

note: Imari Seduction and Mystique are biological sisters, but the original Imari has nothing to do with the two above. It is absolutely different.

Having read sharyssa's comment I must say that I agree only on the cap. Even though this is EDT it is strong in power. I sprayed at 9AM on my shirt and could smell it even in the evening. I can not stand the original Imari, never tried Imari Satin. But I love Imari Seduction! As well as Velvet Imari. I compare Imari Seduction to Rumba. Velvet Imari to Argentine Tango. I love many Avon fragrances and do not find them cheep.

I got a wipey of this & it is pretty nice so far.It gets bit to powdery on the dry down for me though.Over all its a nice oriental ,not to over bearing & the orchid does show through in the perfect amount.
Its like they put a few drops of orchid oil in a spicy potpourri

This Imari Seduction has grown on me quite a bit. The first notes of plum & orchid are very pleasant,and the dry down of it's vanilla, amber and musks settle nicely on me. Love the lingering musk & plum. The notes are rounded out well. I love to use this sensually scented body lotion, perfect for late in the evening, right before bed.
