Popular singer Fergie is launching her first fragrance OUTSPOKEN in cooperation with the house of Avon. The fragrance aims at strong and courageous women who are full of self-esteem and understanding. With Fergy, Avon managed to get the right person for partnership to place their product in the best possible way.

Fergie is a singer, text writer and actress; capricious, feminine and mysterious woman. Fragrance Outspoken depicts her personality, sensuality and seductiveness and highlights complexness of every women that way. Top notes of the perfume refresh us with frozen black currant, starfruit and wild saffron, standing in contrast with gentle aromas of the heart. Floral nuances of tuberose, jasmine and passionflower dance together in a passionate and sensual way, while seducing base notes of ebony, leather and vetiver.

Inspiration for the flacon is connected with popular Fergie's wedding. She remembers to have seen a beautiful, luxurious, crystal vase which attracted her attention with its elegance. Result of the creation is connecting variety and contrasts. Diamond-shaped stopper crowns dark, glass curves of the flacon and achieves a more luxurious form. This precious and feminine flacon is available as 50 ml EDT, for about 28 EUR. Besides the fragrance Outspoken, the collection includes 150 ml perfumed body cream. The fragrance arrives on the market end May 2010.

Great invention! :D really loved it. Had it in 2010 when it was released, i guess i got it in the autumn. Perfect for the cold seasons. Really deserves to be purchased multiple times.

HeidiLynn totally agree with you - very good review and description of the Outspoken! Some time ago purchased it for the 3rd time now and just can't express how much I love this mysteriously, dark, sweet, fruity potion! It has this frosty blackcurrant vibe blended with delightful tuberose, ohh! ok, the sillage and longevity is moderate and I'm usually into sillage bombs and longevity monsters, but the perfume is too good to be judged only by that. I wear it usually in spring and summer, but found out that cold weather compliments this fragrance even more! yumm!

I thought I still had this stuffed somewhere in my drawer and I went looking for it and apparently I gave it away. I don't ever remember spraying it on, so I guess that shows how much I liked it.

I got the gift set which came with 15ml bottles of Outspoken, Outspoken Intense and Viva. I really liked Outspoken, so I got the gift set which came with the lotion and candle, I also got the pendant separately. But thanks to to candle, whenever I smell this now, it just reminds me of candles. It's not a bad thing. I actually really love the smell and wish it would last longer on me. When I put it on in the morning, I'd smell it when I get on the bus, but once I get off, it's gone.

I found this had such a dark, intense start, strong with blackcurrant and a little spice... then it quickly subsided into a much cleaner, lighter smell of soapy tuberose and leather. The longevity was very poor on me though.

Agreed an easy fresh scent that's not over the top. I bought a purse size bottle and will use it for moments when I need a quick fresh up scent. I do agree that it reminds of Michael by Michael Kors. Overall it's an okay fragrance.

One of the worst Avon perfumes I purchased. Others don't notice it. It's not lasting even 5 minutes. It's like: spray and disappear. A total waste of money. The smell isn't enjoyable. It's like a misfortunate mixture of Black Currant and Leather. I couldn't pick any other notes in this perfumy. Very disappointing.

I recently got this perfume as a gift form my grandma =) Like i had mentioned before in my reviews - grandma buys me the things that she likes not necessarily what i would choose =)

It's a different kinda perfume for Avon i'd say - a bit sassy and very empowered woman kinda feel to it...almost masculine at times.

I like it but its not really my cup of tea - i feel that the berry mix and the star fruit make it a bit cold and uninviting. Not a vixen scent. But i do enjoy the die down... the woody note makes it smell very cozy and homey somehow.

I might just like this perfume more because of the fact that its from my grandma rather than for its ingredients. =p

It is a pretty powdery fruit scent. Again, for a younger audience, but it isn't coyingly sweet like many of the celebuscents (spelling?). I actually bought it and used half of the bottle, which is really good for me, as I usually get sick of something fairly quickly. For the price, it is a good deal.

Oh my! I had no expectations, and was unprepared for the delightful fragrance. I saw berries, flowers and leather and assumed it might be disjointed and chaotic. Instead, I find a light floral delight combined with the simple careless joy of wild, ripe fruit. It’s definitely a perfume that doesn’t take itself too seriously, yet isn’t the sugared berry mess that so many other fruity-florals are. This is a woman’s perfume, not a perfume for a girl….and yet, it captures the girlishness that I think all of us try to hold on to. The white flowers are strong, but not overpowering; and they are balanced by the light fruitiness of the currant and the unusual smell of the passionflower. I don’t know that I’ve smelled currant in a fragrance before; it is wilder than a typical berry, I think. I don’t get any leather as a note, but think it must be there (with the vetiver and ebony wood) giving this perfume a bit of shadow and dimension. This woman may be out collecting wildflowers and berries, but she didn’t stick to the meadows and roadsides—she ventured into the woods, too; but not too far in, this doesn’t get dark.

I find this perfume reminds me of Lancome Hypnose, and a tiny bit of Lacoste Pour Femme. It’s the passionflower-white flower combination. Outspoken has more fruit, and does get sweeter. It comes close, but I don’t think it crosses into being syrupy or overly sweet (and I’m not a gourmand perfume fan; I prefer spice, musk and sandal). I have a small sample vial, but may end up splurging on a full bottle!

After smelling this on my co-worker several times I caved and bought it. It really is a safe, fruity floral with lots of tuberose. Bitter fruits though, not sweet. The sweetness comes from the white flowers here. On me this smells like a fruity Michael Kors Michael. Was hoping for some of the leather or woody notes but never got them.,

I used to use this after P.E. when I was younger. I can't really remember what it smells like except it was really heavy(leather?),I think I actually wanted the Outspoken Intense and my mom ordered me this one from Avon when she used to do it. I mean, it's not a bad scent, just I think it was too racy/sexy/mysterious/old for me when I was that age? I don't know. lol :/

I had to have this when it came out. I have never met anyone yet (I see some on this forum) who did not like the fragrance. Maybe it works with my chemistry, but I have always gotten compliments. My husband can't get enough of it. I will agree it is like sex in a bottle, daring, racy, seductive, powerful -and it makes you feel that way when you wear it. It lasts for 4-6 hours on me, but not strongly- I keep the purse spray with me to refresh. Lasts much longer when you layer with the lotion.

Got it extremely cheap on ebay and I have to say it is a sweet smelling perfume. It does smell like a fruity Amarige. I would wear but I did notice that the initial smell does go away very quickly and you probably would have to spray over and over. I like the bottle too!

Sadly, Outspoken's delicious promise of black currants, starfruit and leather were all lost on me. Instead, this fragrance overwhelms with white florals and the intriguing base notes never come. Ironically, I generally dislike floral perfumes, and they tend to be the ones that provide the most staying power and silage for me. Perhaps my nose just detects that which it's the least drawn to, alas!

Got it as a Christmas present a couple of years ago from someone who apparently didn't know me as well as they thought they did. Definitely too strong IMO. Too sweet, like syrup (cough syrup???) I took a whiff and almost gagged. Sprayed a bit on my wrist but was forced to wash it off after less than an hour. Not for me. :(

Ok, it may be a freezing cold parfume, it may contain too much "night" in it, but everyone should agree that this one is one of the most unique perfumes one has ever smelled.
The existence of leather makes it too sexy, when it is combined with the black currant, and jasmine adds a slightly soft note in this.
So yeah, I agree, this perfume smells like sex to me!
I totally love it!

My huband loved this long before I did. It is deep, fruity and unique. It smells like sex in a bottle. Imagine sex on a leather couch, with an array of fruit laid out on the table and a vase with tuberose, jasmine and passion flower somewhere in the backround and you have outspoken. I've had this perfume for over a year and I'm just now enjoying it. While I think I like outspoken intense better as it is a little sweeter, there is definitley a place for this one. It screams sex and is unlike many florals out there now. My husband smells this on me and is instantly taken to a place of passion and lust. Fergie and Avon knew what they were doing with this one! Anyone looking to rev up the sex engine and spice things up should try this.

I love the strange bottle but I would have never associated the fragrance of this one with Fergie if I had done a blindfolded sniff test. But for a celeb frag, this one is fairly well done by Avon. It is rather florally sweet for me. But it is a good anytime frag, especially for we tuberose lovers. The tuberose & jasmine are definitely the stars in this one! I like it very well but would easily get bored with it if overused.

picked up a sampler from Avon and am giving some of their fragrances that i'd never otherwise be interested in a try...

this has that same sour-bitter-rotten-fruit note that so many of the recent Bath & Body Works scents have, but beneath that it kinda smells like a shampoo.

i've had it on for half an hour and i'm looking forward to scrubbing it off.

I'm freakin confused about this one....


I first smelled it 3 years ago, when a schoolmate who was selling avon, brought a sample at school. I felt in love with the fragrance howver I couldn't afford it when I was 18.

After 3 years, I finally got to buy it. I continued loving the smell, it makes me feel so sexy and intependent, it's dark and reminds me of something frozen, luxurious in a playfull way, it makes me feel myself. But I was so dissapointed to find out that it lasts no more than 10 minutes on my skin AND clothes!!!!!


Last night I put a lot of it, then went to make my hair and after 10 minutes nobody could smell it!!!!

What a pitty, because I love it, but I'm very toughtfull of buying it again, if I cannot smell it.

This was a blind buy for me. The notes intrigued me. I do like it, smells very nice. I'm not a big fruity person, but the fruit is not overpowering, it hits you first fast but the florals come in very quickly and are simply beautiful. The only problem I have with this perfume is it doesn't last at all. At a max 4-5 hours tops.

I got a free sample of this and I'm happy with it this is a non offensive smell. The first notes I smell with this is Iced Berries then it smooths down to an almost fresh deodrant soft floral smell. I like this fruity, soft floral scent. Its a nice causal scent!

It turns out that I really love this perfume! I tried it initially when it first came out, I received a small vial sample, gave it a quick sniff and thought meh, nothing special, boring etc. Then not long ago I saw that it was on offer and thought I'd give it a go if nothing else I could just have as daily fume when I can't be bothered to think what to wear! However, after giving it a proper go I absolutely love it! First blast is fruity blackberries (not sugared very well done), then after say half an hour it drys down to a gorgeous sweetish leather with a touch of creamyness (not at all harsh). Although i'm finding this one actually quite hard to describe and/or pinpoint different notes. It smells soft but with a bit of spice! (i'm in love with the dry down in case you hadn't noticed lol). It's conforting and I can definatley see this being one of my fav's for the impending winter months! Longevity is suprisingly good and after dry down stays with you close to the skin for hours. I've never tried Givenchy 'Amirage' but if this is like it i'm now very curious!! xxx I'm also curious to try 'Outspoken Intense' but after reading the reviews on this site it seems as if it's not as good?

Edit
Staying power is really pretty good, after hours of wear when heading to bed that night could smell strong white floral, I think it was Tuberose!

I can't really make my mind about this one...

I smelled more passion flower on the scented card in Avon catalogue. On me it's more like tuberose and black currant. I'm quite disappointed because of that (I thought that passion flower will dominate here), but "Outspoken Intense" seems to satisfying me more.

Outspoken is a floral fragrance, but I would call it more "naughty" than "nice". It's for wild and free souls. I like it, but it is possible to smell a lot of similar fragrances, while passing women on the street. Anyway it smells... YOUNG.

In summary: It's good to have some kind of that among perfumes - you can wear it all day, it is also suitable for the party at night. It's fine and doesn't annoy your nose. Perfect for teen girls, I think.
It may satisfy an "average" nose.
Lasts 3-4 hours on me.

Overall I like this scent because I am a huge fan on tuberose & tuberose is very noticeable in this fragrance. I definitely do smell the black currant, vetiver, ebony wood, leather. Only negative, I have to admit, it smells a tiny bit like hair dye 0.o But this is definitely a perfume that I don't dislike.

I collect perfumes. I didn't like this (typically I don't like Avon perfumes) so I bought the solid perfume heart 'necklace' that came with the gift set. I bought it on Amazon from a seller that was just selling the solid. Celebrity fragrances usually disappoint me with the MAJOR exception of Taylor Swifts new Wonderstruck....LOVE it.

On my skin, Outspoken has no detectable tuberose or leather. All I get is the fruit notes mostly star fruit and black currant. On my skin this smells EXACTLY like Incanto Dream. Incanto Dream also has black current and passion fruit). Actually, the lasting power of this scent is incredible. It lasted on me well over 6 hours with just 2 sprays. While I like this perfume a little, I wouldn't repurchase it. Most straight fruity scents are not my cup of tea. I don't see myself reaching much for this scent.

Pleasant scent. Fruity & flowery at first. Then at time passes a spicy, musky, woody scent stays with you for a while. True, it doesn't have much of a lasting power. But for the price you can reapply it worry free.

For Avon, I found this to be on the more expensive side (compare with the Scentini collection, running at about $8) Nonetheless, I was always curious, so I tried it, and walked away from the Avon counter.

The opening was fruity, very fruity. But it had a darker essence to it. Definatly a night fragrence from the start. Pleasent! A very unique tuberose fragence, I might add.

Now, roughly 4 hours later, I can still smell it clearly. The leather and the black current are weaving in and out of each other beautiful, along a fading background of barley-there tuberose.

I purchased this blindly, searching for an affordable replacement for Michael Kors perfume. I miss wearing Michael Kors, it reminds me of the more decadent times. So given the current economic crisis, I was willing to give Outspoken a try. I found a .5 oz for a song on Ebay and waited for it to arrive.

It came! From first spray Outspoken calls out coyly "don't I remind of you Michael Kors". Minutes later Outspoken is shouting at me "don't I remind you of Michael Kors! I'm not Michael Kors! I'm Outspoken!" Louder and louder with going crescido.

In a panic I go to wash it off, but find there is no need. Outspoken has reduced to a whispering soapy drydown. Boo, now I don't have a replacement for Michael Kors and I'm five short from my next bottle.

I just finished using this perfume and I really find it not that strong but it was good; also when I sweat for some reason it did not made it worse it fact it went along which was good. However, if you are the type of person who likes to use perfume/cologne as often this probably is not suitable for you since it is powdery yet somewhat has a somewhat woodsy smell. This is good for night wear only but you could wear it in a the day if you like.

Nice floral scent. Fruit followed by the tuberose is what I notice immediately upon first spray. Leather appears in the dry down. It gives it the edge it needs to avoid being too 'flowery', for me... Well done fragrance for a very good price. Not a favorite, but I will wear it. :)

I wore this again after not wearing for a of couple months. I had to add that the longevity on this one is GREAT. It really lasts on my skin. The morning after wearing I realized the scent on my wrist was one of the first things I noticed upon waking.

I gave this a try since it got some decent reviews on here, but I really wasn't impressed by it. It starts off with some fruits and then I can smell the tuberose, jasmine and leather. Honestly I am not a white florals or a leather fan so just because I am not fond of it doesn't mean you won't like it. I had a swipe sample of this and i think it is not as strong as if it was a spray. Lightly applied this perfume is ok, but more then lightly I know would give me a headache. It lasted 6 hours on me and I think is a better spring and summer fragrance. Im going to pass on this one. Oh and it did not smell old lady to me. Just a little to much on the sweet side for my preference. So young people, don't be afraid to try it.

I like it. I mean, it is kind of a special perfume, it has a different scent then all those you can smell all day.
First I had disliked the scent, but after some minutes I started to smell the tuberose :) It's intense and the base notes stay for a long time. At the end of the day I still smell sweet and misterious, but not as intense as in the beginning.
Conclusion: like it, it is in my top 10 perfumes.

This perfume smells just like one that my Grandma wears, it must be the Givenchy Amarige. I don't like it for me at all. I would expect something young and fresh from Fergie and, while I appreciate that she didn't decide to create another fruity-floral, this one just doesn't seem to match her image. It's too old-school, IMHO.

This one is nice. Has some of my favorite notes; tuberose, black currant and jasmine. I can't smell the leather in this but that's good because I'm not sure if I want to smell like leather anyway. May not be for everyone, but to me it's a perfect sexy floral and not overbearing. It also has longer lasting power than your average Avon fragrance. And another great thing about this is the price--I got a half ounce purse spray for under $5 on ebay. After I smelled it, I ordered more plus the lotion. This will be one I use often.

I just love this.
I am a tuberose lover and would like to wear it daily.
Some say that this is a cheap copy of Amarige.
It certainly is very close but Outspoken has its own aura. It is more subtle and softer than Amarige. Outspoken can be worn daily but Amarige is for dewy nights.
I, myself can't stand Amarige, it is too powerful; gives me a huge headache.
Maybe that is why I love Outspoken so much.
It lasts about 4-6 hours on me, and that's pretty good.
I will purchase this again surely!

Ps. THE BEST SCENT FROM AVON / FERGIE !
Makes me smile everytime i use it.

Outspoken consistently wavers between a love and a like. I love the body lotion and like the EDT (Avon perfumes work best with my chemistry in their body product presentations as a rule).

I remember reading (in reviews below) the comparison between Skin So Soft and Outspoken; based on this newly acquired knowledge I purchased a bottle of Avon's Original SSS Bath Oil recently and put that theory to the test for myself.

My, I must say, such a fetching combination! The herbal undertones in SSS create a flawless canvas to facilitate the best parts of Outspoken on my skin, passionflower and starfruit laced with blackcurrant petals.
This combination (three layering products) may just keep Outspoken in the loves rank.

P.S. I own Amarige in EDT and EDP formulations and on my skin they are a completely different fragrant journey to Outspoken. Sniffing from the bottles however, I can see where Kristal is coming from. My advice: judge for yourself on your skin. Let your skin do the talkin'!

I adore the smell of this - sexy, musky, but not too spicy - but it does not last more than an hour, at most. I got a small purse-size that I only use if I'm going out because, I feel, even at Avon prices a full size is not worth it.

This doesn't strike me as sexy. It's a pretty, slightly pink floral fragrance, like Eliage. Peonies, tuberose, fresh florals with a nice watery edge, then drying down to sweetness with no leather to mediate. Office or Church suitable, pleasantly pretty. I can't see how this is outspoken or even very different. Pretty though.

I quite like Fergie as a celebrity. I find her strangely beautiful with her almost alien features and raspy voice. I was intrigued to see whether Outspoken captured the type of person I saw her as being.

First off, I could smell the blackcurrant clearly when I first applied this fragrance to my wrist. It had that dark, rich and jammy quality that was indeed very bold and sensual. The heart wanted to be soft, feminine and flowery, however the jasmine and tuberose surprisingly didn't appear to be as creamy and ethereal as those notes often are. I think the saffron and woodsy notes kept the white floral accords grounded.

After a while the scent turned rather sweet, but not gooey thankfully. The Avon powderiness did emerge towards the drydown, however it didn't make this fragrance smell too mature. I would have honestly liked to have smelt more of the leather in the base, but the leather and vetiver were rather subtle.

I may have perhaps preferred a richer oriental to be the fragrance behind Fergie's name, however from what I've experienced and worn for several hours, has left me somewhat in agreement with this fragrance. Outspoken is really not that bad at all.

If it's sexy, it is sexy in the sense of ninties. Sex of 2010s smells sweeter, more like Britney Spears and Mariah Carey fragrances.
Actually the only good thing about Outspoken is nostalgy and cute impressions of 1990s, when everyone was wearing strong dark perfumes.

I first purchased body lotion for only $6. At first i really liked it, it smelled different and i never thought i'd be able to smell leather but i indeed though. It's a very sexy fragrance BUT one it's not long lasting, two it's not a scent you can wear everyday and three i found it to be a bit expensive for an Avon perfume at $28 for the perfume alone - personally i'd put in a little bit more money and buy a higher end perfume. I really love and support Avon products but this fragrance is not worth it. I know it got best perfume of 2011 by allure magazine but it doesn't cut it for me. The bottle looks really expensive i will admit..i just wish it had more of a feminine touch. I just figured out that it's more of a unisex perfume in my opinion because when i wore my dad was like "it's a bit masculine..is it for women?". I'm into more fruity/floral/gourmand scents but i love anything that smells sexy and sultry while still being sweet but not cotton candy sweet.

To me, it's not a "worth it" perfume if it doesn't stay on you long enough or isn't strong enough for someone at least 3 feet to smell it. Clearly, outspoken isn't outspoken enough. i like the fragrance but it falls short on staying power. That's what you get from an Avon product.

This scent for me is nothing like I had expected it to smell. I thought it would be heavier on the leather and ebony wood notes but it's more floral to my nose. I do like it though and have to agree that it does smell like Avons Skin So Soft. It lasts fairly long maybe 4-8 hours but sillage is weak. I would say it's a nice spring scent.

Not bad at all. It is a bit dark as others put it meaning is not a kind of make me happy or fresh scent. However it has a certain character and the leather note is truly detectable in a very balanced way, not annoying or loud way. It is a modern scent that could be really used day or night and the lasting power is pretty good at least on me. The bottle is cute fits its content. Though it is not really my kind of 'tea', I still enjoy wearing it here and there just to spice things up around me.

I like this but not enough to wear it in the evening. Many will say its an evening fragrance but I wear it for work. The blackcurrant top not is quite strong on me and as it dries down I get the Jasmine and Vertyver. The blackcurrent does seem to remain so it remains a little fruity. It does last well and I can still smell it, albeit faintly, after a 9 hour day.

i recieved a sample of this from my avon girl, i was very surprised that it does seem to smell like a cheap imposter perfume. imposter of what tho, i'm not sure. i didn't care for it all and wrote it off as one more of avon's same run of the mill perfumes. there are only a few avon perfumes that i enjoy and they pop up randomly. this is not one. bond girl 007 is favorite of mine right now from avon. and i never go wrong with their soft musk. outspoken is a loud disappointment.

I really thought that when this perfume will come up it will be something unusual, sexy and sensitive as Fergie. But...It disappointed me a lot. The smell is so mainline, nothing special :( It may be pretty on some teenage girls who are just beginning with perfumes and do not know many more famous or I should say, more expensive perfumes.

I will only recommend it to girls between 15- 20y. If you will like it...

I would have liked the leather note to be much louder. I could detect it, but only in random moments, something would float past my nose which actually reminded me more of rubber tires than of leather, but I wanted more of it! Without that tiny hint of the unusual, it's really just a floral. It's nice, but I prefer something a lot more daring and unusual than this. In the end it just isn't memorable.

I must agree with many of the above posters who commented on the similarities b/w Outspoken and Amarige. The two are quite similiar, except, of course, Amarige, being a child of the House of Givenchy, is a wee bit more expensive than Fergie's creation.
Not that I'm terribly dissapointed about that, mind you. I remember Amarige when I actually owned the fragrance some time ago; it was and still is quite a beautiful scent, I just wish Fergs would have come up with something just a little more original. Oh well, with the gluttony of fragrances out there nowadays, who can be original? ;)

Avon say this one has "Iced Berries" which I'm thinking is the top notes aroma which is very notable and tantalizing when you first spray it on, but that fades to a strong leather notes that predominate - the starfruit, passion flower and blackcurrant notes are delicious and all up its a warm broth - a little haunting too!

This is a very clean, smooth fragrance. Upon first spray, I detect dark berries, but it is not exactly fruity or sweet.
It dries to a soft, creamy floral/leather. Creamy is definitely the word that most comes to mind when smelling this. It's a bit soapy, but holds a sense of sophistication.
Appropriate for any occasion.
I just wish it lasted longer, even when layering with the lotion.

Overall, a really pleasant fragrance and a beautiful bottle.

i purchased a bottle of this perfume from my avon rep a short while back now , and im afraid this perfume left me rather dissapointed ...
first impresssions i hated the design of the bottle i was expecting the top of the bottle to be a bit more glam !!
on opening the perfume i expected to smell a lovely leathery but feminine smell where is my leather ? no leather smell in this perfume , when my rep gave me a sample card the scent was great then..so quite let down , and my main impressions was that fergies say it like you mean it scent actually smelt exactly the same as the skin so soft range by avon .. very soapy nothing daring or exciting at all paid 14 quid for this perfume and dont use it any longer as dont like it ! not a perfume id be rushing to buy again ...

On my skin Outspoken is a bit too masculine and the leather note, which is dominant for me, starts to smell like rubber after some hours. Not working well with my body chemistry at all. Unfortunately, because I love black currant.

Well iced black currents I can see in the initial opening, then on my skin it develops a soapy quality, like soapy musk.
The black currents have a mixed berry feel that is wonderful but sadly they quickly blend down into the soap and stay there. There are no flowers, certainly no tuberose for me.

Outspoken actually cruises along the lines of Intimately Beckham Night. After wrist by wrist comparison, aside from the opening, they are quite similar except Beckham holds the berry notes much better. All in all I think I'll keep my Beckham and swap Outspoken...sorry Fergie. My skin and your perfume are not a match.

I really like Fergie's first fragrance. It really reminds me a lot of Mary J. Blige's "My Life" fragrance but it's easier to get to and easier to get a sample of.

It starts of juicy with a burst of sweet, tarty blackberries and you can also smell the tuberose but it's in the background. It doesn't ever overpower the other notes which is A1 in my book since Tuberose seems to always dominate everything else. They went very light with it and any fragrance that can tame the wildhorse that is Tuberose gets a great review from me.

I don't know for sure how the lasting power is since I just put some on about 15 minutes ago but for 36 bucks you get a solid, a 6.7 lotion and a 1.7 oz bottle of edp. You can't really beat that. I've had other scents from designers that cost WAY more than that and they've faded after 15 minutes. This seems to just be getting started. Good job, Fergie! I think I'll be getting this tonight :)

I've tested this fragrance as it has finally arrived in my country.
At first smell it has some 'AVON' taste, very conventional, but after some hours (the lasting period is pretty good) it becomes a bit sharp but juicy scent - due to the star fruit and berries I guess.
At the same time there's nothing special about it, I would become bored of it so fast, so I think for this price there are better (celebrity) perfumes.

The bottle is nice, but the logo makes it a little bit cheap-looking for me.

What can I say about Outspoken? Lots of things; which surprised me as I expected this to be another heavy, cheap smelling Avon perfume. Besides the fact that it’s backed by a celebrity synched my negative predisposition about this perfume.

Boy was I wrong!

Is this another sweet celebrity scent? Yes and No.

The red berries in the top notes and the leathery bottom notes are beautifully held together by the tuberose. I don’t even care for leather tones on me and yet... this is the first perfume I will wear that has those dark leathery tones (and vetiver to boot!) because it is accented by wonderful dark and icy berries that are warmed up by the tuberose, creating a juxtaposition to die for. All the other notes play supporting roles here. Berry, tuberose, and leather run the show, so to speak. On my skin, the berries and tuberose shine, leaving the ebony character of the scent dancing undercovers to a rock n roll tune. No femme fatale quality to it as most people hoped it would. Which is great for me since I wouldn't want to walk around smelling like someone I'm not. I think this is what I had hoped Avril Lavigne's Black Star would smell like. Sweet... but with an edgy kick to it.

Projection is good but the sillage is medium. Staying power leaves something to be desired.

Avon offers money back guarantee. Buy it! ;o)

Nothing special AT ALL on me. Flowery tuberose is all I'm getting and I think I've smelled this in a million other perfumes. I expected something a little "dirtier". For a flowery, leathery, sexy scent-I'll go back to Kiss for Her. Weird as it sounds, that is a REALLY nice scent. It's a "lady in the boardroom, sexpot in the bedroom" kind of scent.

A very nice tuberose & leather scent. The black currant is super sweet & strong but then hushes down a bit for tuberose & leather to ultimately settle in for the duration , but with the juiciness of the berries always present.
I note the leather but it's very subtle , maybe like the lingering faint smell of well loved worn leather from my closet.
The leather note is enough to cast a bad girl feel to this perfume, the florals & berries are sweet & feminine , but the leather may suggest the leather whip used by a dominatrix..
I find the contrast of sweet & dark interesting enough.
This in my opinion is not 'Avon' like - I am no snob but but I dislike many of Avon's frags except for their wonderful Today perfume which happens to be one of my favorites - Outspoken is very well done ; there is no jarring , weird off balance chemical like smell that I can detect in many of Avon's other offerings.
All in all Outspoken is one sexy little number that happens to be very wearable with just a suggestion of darkness contained within.
My only complaint is that I wish it would be a little stronger.

Amarige as reconstructed by Fergie might be a more suitable name for this fragrance because there is a strong resemblance between the two. Outspoken has an initial strong blast of toothache inducing sweet berries. Think black currant covered in corn syrup and sprinkled with sugar. This then turns into something very similar to Amarige and then the wait begins for the leather note. Is that it? No, that is the sickly sweet berries reappearing. Is that it? No, that is the ever-present tuberose. Where is this alleged leather note? Wait, was that it? Did it appear? If so, it was so quick I missed it completely. Sigh...

I didn't detect that powdery fragrance that seems to be the hallmark of most Avon fragrances with this one but I didn't find it that interesting in comparison to run-of-the-mill department store fragrances.

Not a bad fragrance but maybe I was too caught up in wanting that leather note that I feel rather let down by this fragrance as a whole. It is clean, fresh, fruity and tuberosey, which makes me think more of a perky cheerleader rather than the black-clad theater dame I imagined wearing this.

I might still buy this though, but only if it isn't full price.

My small sample smells of a fruity, rich tuberose. Pretty, but nothing special.

Blackcurrant is usually like crack to me, especially in a fragrance, but sadly, it does nothing here.

I got a whiff of the leather in the beginning, but it's not strong enough to do the Blvgari Black thing.

I like it, but in a casual, noncommittal way - kind of like how I "like" flavor of the month pop music or whatever. Fun while it lasts, no loss to the world when it's gone.

I finally got to try this at the Avon store. The first thing I noticed was that it smelled just like Amarige when first applied. Then it softens into light Amarige with a woody leather smell. Then it fades out fast but that's pretty much normal with Avon stuff. It's not that bad but the first blast of Amarige-like floral threw me off. It was like a trip back to the 90s with Givenchy perfumes gone wild. Then it's more woody floral and different.
It's not just another fizzwater celebrity fragrance so it's worth trying out. The base notes of wood and leather may not be for everybody but I like them. I like the painted black bottle too. It's like the black bottles of vintage Arpege, Tabu or Zen. Sort of mysterious looking like a black cat in the night.

I was going to start by saying this is my first celebrity perfume, but I have Elizabeth Taylor's from way back when. c3c is right is saying we shouldn't be put off by the face in front of the ad campaign, but I confess, I have ignored many perfumes because of this. I really like Fergie, the woman and the artist. But, I only got the fragrance as part of my research on leather perfumes. I'm totally surprised how light and 'young' this scent is. I'm still waiting for the leather to kick in. I'm dissapointed but at the same time really like it. I wanted it to reflect Fergie the strong, dominant female, and I got Fergie, the pretty bride. This is a good daytime scent.

I live in the USA and just got this today. At first I detected an odd sourish berry smell mixed with something that seemed very familiar but could not figure out. Then as it died down some it hit me. It smells like clove. The little cloves you put in your ham. Also a little licorice. (I realize these are not listed in the notes). It's not very sweet, that's for sure. But it certainly has an attitude. This is so totally different from any perfume Avon has had in the past.
I actually like it!! It's so different!!

I love Outspoken by Fergie. I am very fussy about perfume and rarely buy anything but Opium. But as soon as I tried Outspoken I loved it. This will be on my forever list of perfumes. Its sensual and sexy and makes me feel wonderful and it is long lasting so very much value for money. I certainly have never bought a perfume because a celebrity was behind it. This is one Aussie lass who is definitely going to be outspoken about "Outspoken".

When I smelled the sample, all I could feel was tuberose. I got a bottle for me and I´m using it: the smell is completely different. It´s fruity with a little touch of tuberose. My nose is not that good today, so I´ll have to use it again in other oportunity to review it for good.

A beautiful tuberose-berry smell. I can't smell leather, but vinyl, and it's very sexy! Another celebrity tuberose scent I like is Curious by Britney Spears. I'm still don't know which one I prefer! :D

This is gorgeous, but a remarkable suprise to what I was actually expecting out of Fergie.
I initially imagined Outspoken to be a loud, potion-like headstrong fragrance dominated with dark florals, exotic fruit with a dramatic musky or tobacco base note.

But I was pleasantly shocked to discover that Outspoken is somewhat 'cleaner' than I had anticipated.

The Tuberose is obvious, and it disappears beautifully as makes way for the iced blackcurrant and star fruit notes.

The Jasmine makes a subtle appearance - I don't have a clue what Passionflower smells like, so I can only guess...

Clean green Vetiver is evident, it allows a gentle but glorious finish. However, the other base notes are virtually non-existant, it's like they were never meant to be there anyway.

There is a teensy bit of saffron note that seems to linger towards the end.

Is it me or Outspoken and Givenchy's Amariage smells the same to me? they both
have an an Acidic sweetness base in both
perfumes i think is the pervasive amount of Tuberose of each Fragrances Amariage
has a more of an sour tangy tinges and with more of an use of an woody drydown.

the opening begins with an Tuberose effect mellows out with the presence
of Black currents and crisp textures
of Starfruit. the drydown is bit elusive
Passion flower with it's beautiful foliage adds to the beauty Jasmine and
me is like finding a needle in a haystack if it's mingling with the other
notes but as a single note yes it's easier to find.

There is very little or no Leather scent
but the thought of it make it more sexy
and yes indeed it is a sexy perfume
but the silage is not long lasting compared to Amariage so you need to apply a few times but it's well worth it.

Amarige is a Older refined Sophisticated
Mature and more mannered Sister to Outspoken which is as the description
reads it Younger Edgier daring darker
and aimed for the younger crowd, but when these come together they make an
unlikely bedfellows.

I had higher hopes for this fragrance - (see my commentary for this perfume from 05/04/2010).

The top is nice enough - the berries in the top notes are not subtle which, for me, is a positive. However, the vetiver and leather basenotes are basically non-existent, and the musk that's left after the drydown smells incredibly cheap.

It's not the worst thing I've smelled by any stretch of the imagination, but it is definitely not worthy of a space in my rotation. I would never reach for it.

I got this today and is really nice at first it is really fruity,i can smell the iced berries then it become more floral the tuberose dominates the scent (at this point it reminds me a lighter Amariage by Givenchy(i read that Fergie used to wear it))at the end smell like something warm this point i cant describe it,the lasting power is really good for the price,it last like 8 hours on my skin,if you can get it in promotion with the big body lotion you should get it is a great option for a nice Fruity-Floral(is not mature but is not for teens,i mean is a nice balanced is modern but have vintage hints),i totally recomend it!. :)

I got Outspoken with the body lotion and body spray combined for about £14 with Avon, and I have to say that i love this frag! The opening is strong...I found similarities between this and the opening smell of Britney's circus fantasy, but then it warms into something completely different to it. Nothing too outrageous or original, but a pretty good scent for the price...a typical Avon-smelling frag too:)

This one has that Avon 'powder' scent that they all seem to develop but has some great extras in there. Actually the Avon site reviews mention Skin So Soft's sensual as a big comparison and I can agree with that.
Don't expect a sickly sweet fruit hit - the tuberose, passionflower and jasmine are there from the beginning with a forest fruits tang and then it all softens down into a musky floral with a black leather edge (think expensive car interior)

The notes sound fantastic, and although not every Avon perfume is a winner, they do have some really fantastic ones.

A star having a perfume is about marketing - same goes for the house that's producing it (in this case, Avon).

The primary criteria for assessing perfume should be how it smells. The secondary thing to consider would be the actual perfumer, which in this case isn't listed, but I'd be interested to find out who it is.

My perfume collection covers a broad spectrum of price points and contains mainstream, niche and boutique fragrances. Every time I see a review by someone who turns their nose up at a perfume solely because it's a celebrity fragrance or because it's made by Avon or B&BW, and not by someone like Montale or Serge Lutens, I automatically assume that person has something to prove and dismiss their opinion altogether, since it appears to be based on a need to be accepted by other perfume "experts" and not on whether or not a fragrance actually smells pleasant. It's silly, really.

I for one, think the notes in this sound fascinating and I'm really excited to try it. I've sniffed a lot of a fruity florals, but never one with base notes like these.

Really though one should not look at a perfume by who's face they choose to put in it's ad's or even what brand produced it (although obviously that can swing you) but by what it smells like. The notes sound intriguing. Some Avon fragrances are very nice, last, and have a great price. Some more expensive perfumes don't last at all. Also in my humble opinion Fergie is looking pretty good. I don't think I'd mind being able to put that outfit on and look that good. I can't wait to try it.
