Welcome to my first briefest review! :~)
The Product ~ 'When sleeping women wake, mountains move'! (Tahitian Proverb)
This wonderfully aromatic body mist comes in almost identical container as Avon's other similar range, the Hawaiian shores eau de toilette. A fun twirling wave sits upon five images of pretty flowers to denote a 'holiday' feel to the spray. A simple transparent pop off cap reveals the easy to press nozzle that releases a light but strong spray of the contents.
Usage Experience ~ 'The well trodden path is not always the right path' (Tahitian Proverb)
As with the Hawaiian Shores eau de toilette, this too is a fragrance that is particularly suited to the summer season, perhaps on a warm breezy sultry evening out! With its practical spritz nozzle, the spray comes out in a sharp short blast. I apply the body mist at around seven inches from my body to afford a lovely misting effect. The spray feels similar to the aqua refreshing sprays available, with its cooling pleasant feeling to my skin.
Unlike the Hawaiian Shores EDT mist, this one has a more sensual bouquet with initial top notes of Jasmine, coconut and overtones of musk. I cannot detect the notes of ginger at this point that is mentioned on the scent's advertisements. Ironically, the middle notes are commented on as being that of Jasmine and coconut that I detect in the Top notes, but here again, I sense a different aroma, that of the ginger I couldn't smell within the Top notes! The fragrance settles down to base notes of a wonderful exotic musk with undertones of cyclamine and jasmine. I adore this gorgeous mixture of a warm and rich bouquet.
I love to spray this tropical aromatic spritz all over my body, giving a wonderful effect as I walk. And just like my Hawaiian Shores, I spray the perfume into the air, and immediately walk underneath as the spray provides my hair with a noticeable essence.
Would I Recommend? ~ 'A single roll of taro top is delicious if seasoned with affection' (Tahitian Proverb)
Yes, I would definitely recommend this luxurious eau de toilette. This wonderful combination of exotic flowers and fruit affords a rich aroma to the skin that last for several hours. I purchased this perfume via my local Avon rep, but the product can be purchased on such sites as Amazon and Ebay for £4.50 or less.
Summary: A warm tropical fragrance especially suited for summer evenings! :~)
Thank you for taking the time to read my review on Avon Tahitian Holiday Exotic Body Mist. I hope it was beneficial :~) xXx

I think it might be difficult for some men to extract the relevant purchasing information from the 'interesting' (but irrelevant to the product) tahitian proverbs with which this review is strewed . . . I had to read it several times before I saw the price (and no mention of Avon's OWN RRP), and as the picture used (is it from the Avon website?) also shows the EDT (?), a comparison with its own EDT might actually make this review more helpful to a prospective purchaser
