One of the landmarks in the multi-level business marketing of the cosmetics industry is Avon Products Inc, a company that was founded in 1886. Famous as well for its celebrity spoke models, Avon has launched over the years numerous fragrances that were fronted by celebrities.
In this category, Outspoken Intense represents the result of the second association between the pop singer Fergie (born Stacy Ann Ferguson) from the American hip hop group Black Eyed Peas and the cosmetic company. A flanker to the 2010 Outspoken by Fergie, the fragrance called Outspoken Intense was introduced in 2011, as a floral fruity feminine. This new perfume aims at replicating the popularity of its precursor, the most successful fragrance launch to date from Avon, as the pink and more powerful version of the original.
The moment I sniffed the fragrance on my wife’s skin I was intoxicated by the oversweet accords from the opening. The beginning of Outspoken Intense represents a blend of black berry, star fruit and kumquat. The extra sensation of sweetness brought to my mind another Avon scent, Jet Femme. Later, in approximately 15 minutes, the heart revealed a more balanced character, in which the passion flower, gardenia and African orange flower were correctly dosed. Moreover, the mid development announced the woody accords from the base. Finally, in the dry down, I felt the warm accords of amber, mixed with white musk and Virginia cedar.
The bottle of Outspoken Intense is similar to the one from its predecessor, except this time the chosen chromatic is grey, rather than black. The transparent stopper completes finely the bottle shape which reminds of the woman body. Overall, Outspoken Intense by Fergie is a correct fragrance, judging from the price paid, however do no expect luxury and do take into account the syrupy notes from the beginning.
