Louis Feraud Fantasque was launched in collaboration with Avon Cosmetics in 1982 (this is also the first designer perfume from this company). The perfume is a rich chypre with top notes of pear, aldehydes, citruses, spices, rosewood and green tones. The heart includes a floral bouquet of ylang-ylang, jasmine, lily of the valley, rose and orris root. The base features patchouli, moss, cedar, sandalwood, musk and amber.

Fantasque Fragrance Reviews

I have always liked/love Avon perfumes, I even used to sell for them at one time, The perfumes always seemed to be very floral to me, which is not a bad thing, but Fantasque was the first perfume to not smell like 'Avon' perfume. it was the first designer perfume Avon had sold.. I had bottle upon bottle of this in the 80s, and it was so beautiful....I realise that it must have been Fantasque that opened my eyes to aldehaydes, oakmoss and patchouli perfumes, only previously have been wearing flowery Avon scents....
Years have passed and only when I was talking about Favourite Avon perfumes......I then remembered this one I couldnt even remember the name of it, all I could do was describe the bottle.....and someone helped me with the name...and so now I am on the hunt for this precious juice on Ebay, for the sake of nostalgia AND to wear this beauty again just because I love it so much....

This review is for a the colongn concentration of Fantasque. When I first put it on my wrists I could barely smell it. However, as it warmed on the skin, the scent unfolded in a way that very much evokes Deneuve (Catherine Deneuve), of which I have a small perfume concentration. But fantasque is a tad, JUST a tad, fruiter. In fact, they smell so similar that if you have been trying to purchase Deneuve and can't seem to spring for the prices that they're charging for it on ebay, this may be a satisfying substitute as it is a beautiful classic chypre full of oakmoss, as well. For an AVON scent, Fantasque (to me) smells of equal quality to the Deneuve and I'm happy I stumbled upon it.

I stumbled upon a little bottle of this from my Avon stash and have to say it is one the best ever produced from the company. I am talking 100s of random beauties that came out every year. Some were forgettable. Others stood out and became perennial favorites.

Yet Fantasque raised the bar and elevated the brand to new heights. I guess the 1980s needed a fine French designer to push the brand further. This little beauty did just that. My love for the chypre only grows with this heavy beauty.

Aldehydes, oakmoss, vetiver and patchouli present an elegant floral heart that pack a punch. Its well dressed and perfect for evening wear. Sadly Avon has pushed this one away. If you get a chance, try it.

In my mid-to-late twenties this was one of my favorite fragrances... It is tied in with some pretty heavy memories... I have been watching eBay for a steal.

It does last long; is a heavy fragrance. I remember thinking how pricey it was for AVON! I received it for Christmas 1982 as my first marriage came to a screeching halt. And I wore it into my "young divorcee" days!

Ah, youth. I recall it as fresh, unusual and a conversation starter with the boy-men who were crawling the clubs back then.

Perhaps I will try it again.... The fragrance starts out almost too sweet, but softens to a milder, earthy scent.

Fantasque is aldehydic, woody and mossy. It doesn’t have the soapiness that some aldehydic fragrances have. Rather, it has a dry, almost herbal tone to it. After the aldehydes subside, I like the greenness about it. I’m not picking up many florals or spices, it’s mostly woods and moss to me.

If you remember Agree shampoo and conditioner, you will have an almost perfect idea of this scent. It had great staying power too. I have a few bottles stashed and I use it sparingly. Every once in awhile, Avon will bring it out and sell it for a limited time. I don't know when the last time they did this was. My second favorite perfume.

I was googling something else today and stumbled across a picture of this WONDERFUL fragrance. It was given to me by my aunt when it was introduced by Avon in the early 80's. Had forgotten how much I absolutely loved it until I saw the pic. I usually shy away from ebay, but am going to start watching it for this one.

My recollection of exactly what made this so spectacular is rusty, and my forte is not deciphering and describing the various nuances of the individual notes, but what I do remember is that it was a powerful, heady, complex chypre; terrific projection and longevity and gathered so many compliments. I have always been a fool for chypres and this was one of the really great ones. Being an Avon fragrance, it did not reach its greatest potential market, IMO.

I remember being so upset when it was no longer available, not unlike my melancholy when the original Armani for women was unceremoniously given the axe! WHY do they kill the truly great ones? This was really good!
