Signature from Avon is the fist fragrance in which I detected a single note from the beginning of its development stage until the end of it, in spite of its announced composition that included a trio made up of a top, heart and base note. Officially, Signature is classified as woody aromatic fragrance, but taking into account its parsimony in the olfactory department I would be reserved on that classification.
The scent was introduced by Avon in 2008 and represents a creation of the perfumer Christian Truc. The official statements mentions that this perfume is suitable for both day and evening wear, however I would advise you to stay as far as you can from it, as it lacks any emotion that is a characteristic of the real perfumes.
Its listed ingredients include green apple and grapefruit in the top notes, followed by ginger and bamboo in the middle notes and patchouli, teak wood and cedar for the base notes. The problem here is that I only perceived one note: the green apple, thought its entire development stage. And I’m not anosmic to some aromas but perhaps this is all part of a marketing effort aimed to promote a new category of scent.
Signature is not even defining a style, as one may imagine while reading the official statements, because it is a fragrance that is beyond boring. If you are living a common life or you have a routine job, a boring family and everything around you relates to this particular word, then Signature is the ideal fragrance for you. But beware, because sometimes bored people are capable of crazy actions.
