Petal is a fragrance for girls, made as a pair to the recently introduced Flower perfume. These two fragrances are created for mother and daughter. Frank Voelkl and Richard Herpin are the noses behind Petal, which is full of flower essences. This innocent and green floral scent is bathed in notes of lily of the valley. The bottle has the same shape as the Flower perfume, made of glass; romantic, youthful and pink. It is available as 30 ml edt. It has been on the market since 2008.    

Perfume rating: 3.62 out of 5 with 119 votes.

Petal by Cynthia Rowley Fragrance Reviews

Liked this sweet gentle thing that I thought would remind me of Love's Baby Soft, but it is its own kind of innocent. Lasts about 10 seconds, but I would spray it on my towel or pajamas and enjoy it that way. Tiny supercute bottle, and it was cheap from Avon, something very different for them without the Avony note that almost all of their fragrances seem to have. Must have been the influence of Rowley. I loved the mom of this one, Flower, which like others here have said smells like a blooming Stargazer lily.

Awh I love this one, cute, quirky and unique basically describes this scent. It is beautiful and alternative it smells floral and ozonic, I love it however i smell some soft orangey creamy scent with this one that is not listed, I think the notes appear wrong. It is a treasure i think this perfume matches my inner child, it is an adorable innocent happy scent and men compliment me on it often.

P.s. this now goes on ebay for £30, it used to be about £8 in avon, it is definitely worth having. Love the feel and look of the bottle too, very adorable, i will always have this one in my collection.

I owned this one many years ago, along with it's companion "Flower". Petal is more of a green floral (Freesia/Lily of the Valley), as opposed to flower which is more of a white floral (Gardenia/Tuberose). Like flower, this one also lasts long on the skin, particularly in the summer months.

I just acquired this perfume today. I happened upon it in a second hand store, new, still in the box and everything. I decided that it wouldn't be a loss if I didn't like it, especially for the great price of $1.25 (although the man at the register was so nice he just gave it to me for nothing, since i frequent the shop!) I figured that if I didn't like it, I could always give it to one of my daughters or sell it. I had no clue that it was such a rare, discontinued perfume! When I got home, I gave it a sniff. I couldn't smell it from the bottle, because it had never even been sprayed, so I was really happy that it was totally untouched. I pumped it a few times until it sprayed, and I was very satisfied. It is such a sweet, inoffensive floral. I love how the touch of citrus tames the floral notes, and adds a fresh, fruity quality. It's not sharp or cloying in any way, and it will make a great spring scent. This may be meant for a young girl, but at 28 years old, i find this scent beautiful nonetheless. I'm glad that I have several other perfumes to use, so I can only use this one on occasion, since it is hard to come by, and expensive when you can find it, due to it's rarity. Amazing little find for me! :)

I absolutely love this fragrance. Can anyone suggest a duplicae for it, or is it still in production? I have had mine since it first came out.

Lovely Spring Green Feminine those are the keywords. Smells like Lemon Blossoms and some kind of spice. Pacifica Nerola Orange Blossom is my most simalar to this, except that's obviously Orange Blossom. Found it for 6.99 at an indoor swap meet from a woman selling Avon products.

very sweet, but not in a sickening way. more fresh. i get a lot of citrus from this also. very sparkling and pleasent. very reasonably priced, but dosen't last long at all. i get at most 1/2 hr. so be prepared to do a lot of spraying.

I read adele's review below where she says this is a honeysuckle soliflore and I was sceptical - that would be too good to be true!
Although honeysuckle isn't listed as a note, adele, you're spot on!
Perhaps it's not identical to honeysuckle but it's near enough and I'm very pleasantly surprised by this, especially as it's an Avon one, whose modern frags I don't seem to be fond of.
I agree with Rainmood and others, this disappears very quick but I don't mind. It leaves a very subtle trace and the overall effect is light and natural.
In terms of both smell and bottle, Petal is really very charming!

I bought this for an 11-year old girl and she loves it.
The bottle is pretty, the scent is happy, girly. I love it, too. And it is affordable, or was.
This really is a perfect first perfume for a young girl.

I think this is a light floral, but it is not so pleasant. I had a sample but didn't even use it up.

YUCK!!!! I tried this on at my avon lady's place and it was so awful. It gave both my boyfriend and I a wicked headache in the truck on the way home and I had to try to scrub it off with a wet nap. It was an overpowering sweet floral scent and it smelled very cheap.

Love this one. I loved this much better then cynthia Rowley Flower, and was surprised cause this one is supposed to be worn by a child. I'd much prefer to wear this over the Flower any day. Flower is WAY too flowery, Petal is nice and soft and sweet. I love it

A soft, pretty honeysuckle soliflore with vegetal undertones, suitable for those who don't like overpowering perfumes. Dewy and fresh; surprisingly natural smelling!

This is a very light scent that smells nice. I like it, hate that it's discontinued. This is something you'd wear when you don't want to be "heavily perfumed" say at the office, interview etc.

Poor little "Petal"! Like her mother, "Flower", she has already been discontinued by Avon. It's hard to see why. Although marketed to girls it's a great scent for anyone who likes a fresh, clean, young perfume. Opening notes are green, slightly sweet rather than sharp. The middle reminds me of honeysuckle and the bottom reminds me of just cut grass. This one is so reminiscent of a summer afternoon. The bottle is as pretty and innocent as can be. What was Avon thinking to discontinue it?!

I don't have much to say about Petal, because it disappeared in less than an hour! (I time these things.) Darling Starling is right, it does smell like a nice shampoo or bubble bath, and then - poof! It's gone. I can see how it would be a cute gift for a little girl, though, and it's much nicer than a Barbie perfume or similar.

I quite like this perfume. Its extremely floral & sweet but not sickly sweet. It reminds me an awful lot of anna sui dream.

Its a pretty day time fragrance, nothing massively special but not unpleasant either.

As i have found with most avon perfumes this doesnt last very long on my skin & becomes hardly noticable with a couple of hours.

I just can't get over how adorable the bottle is, even if i'm unimpressed by the scent inside. To me this smells like a citrus laced version of Stila's Creme Bouquet, Floral, a bit powdery but then there is lemon and it just doesn't work (To my nose anyway). I would love to have a shampoo that smells just like this, or maybe a bubblebath that smells like this. I guess it's just right as a perfume in my opinion. I've never liked an Avon perfume though.... :( Oh and just to add something to help pre-sniffers relate, this smells like dish detergent.

This one did nothing for me, actually I only got a bit of alcohol out of it, very weak in my opinion. Flower was much better but too strong... they need to find a happy medium btwn the two...

I'm not a perfume snob. I love it. I have a hard time finding something that appeals to me. I don't usually like Avon's perfumes but this one's not too overpowering (as I am sensitive to those strong scents). Disappointed that Avon does not carry it anymore. Go figure.
