In October 2020, Avon introduced a new gender-neutral fragrance collection created by master perfumers – LYRD Artisan. There are two eau de parfums in the collection which brings on images of class and sophistication when I breath in the fragrances.
LYRD Artisan Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum
I have never smelled “cherry” except in children’s Tylenol, so I was curious as to how this scent was going to work when it was first introduced. Now that I have smelled it, I am in love with it! The LYRD Artisan Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum has a very smooth, decadent scent; The light cherry scent is countered by a soft, woodsy fragrance. It does NOT smell like children’s Tylenol at all. When I close my eyes and inhale the Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum, the image that comes to mind is a confident, classy, professional woman in her age 40’s or above. I’m in love with this eau de parfum and would definitely wear this to a job interview. Although LYRD Artisan is gender-netural, Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum smells more feminine than the Santal Musk fragrance.
LYRD Artisan Santal Musk Eau de Parfum
The LYRD Artisan Santal Musk Eau De Parfum has a more masculine fragrance compared to the Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum, but I can understand why it is considered gender-neutral, because there is a thin layer of sweetness with the sandalwood, musk scent. When I close my eyes and inhale the Santal Musk Eau de Parfum, I think of a sophisticated gentleman during Fall or Winter. I honestly do not think of a woman when I smell this eau de parfum. Because of the gold top and forest green bottle, I feel this would make a beautiful gift.
Ultimately, my favorite LYRD Artisan is the Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum, because it is so smooth, and I like the hint of decadent cherry. Other scents that I enjoy are Haiku Kyoto Flower Eau de Parfum and the Sparkling Vanilla Champagne Body Mist (no longer available).
