Review & Smellfest: Serge Normant Avah Eau De Parfum for Hair and Body

Serge Normant Eau De Parfum for Hair and Body
Famed hair guru Serge Normant is known for his celebrity styling and general hair know-how, so it's no surprise that he has a hair line, and it exudes luxurious professionalism. Like most every hair care line, there are shampoos, conditioners, styling aids, etc., but the one thing I didn't anticipate was a perfume for body AND hair! In many ways, I've always been one with hair envy. For one, I have fine hair that I'm constantly trying to beef up. But something I had come to live with was the fact that the fragrance from shampoos, conditioners, and even hair sprays rarely lingered in my hair the way the way it would for others. Naturally, this scent was something I had to try.

Serge Normant Avah Eau De Parfum for Hair and Body contains Jojoba, Aloe Vera, & Vitamin E, along with notes of ylang ylang, jasmine, amber, soft woods, and musks. Interestingly enough, at first sniff, the muskiness is in-your-face bold. Typically I find that sweeter scents are the first to get noticed while the deeper, muskier notes have a longer life span. That's definitely not the case with this fragrance. In fact, the opposite happens! The muskiness was borderline off-putting at first (and that's coming from a warm, musk lover). After a quick spritz in the hair, however, I noticed that the musk started to mellow and the jasmine and ylang ylang came out. I began to fall in love...

The scent lingered in my hair all day and I loved catching a whiff every time my hair would move (even in a bun!). I got so used to the occasional scented pick-me-up that on days when I forgot to spritz, I would make a mental note to never let that happen again. It's that lovely! 

Now, I had never tried spraying an Eau De Parfum in my hair prior to trying Avah, so I was skeptical as to whether or not this specific formulation would do anything special for my hair. To test things out, I sprayed Victoria's Secret Dark Orchid Eau De Parfum in my hair and the experiment began. Overall, the VS scent was less noticeable and I noticed that it faded slightly faster throughout the day. Additionally, I found that the scent that lingers from Avah smells more like a delicious hair care product than a perfume (I'm hoping that makes sense to more than just me). In terms of added benefits from Avah's Jojoba, Aloe Vera, & Vitamin E, I couldn't distinguish a difference.

Overall, I love this scent and I love how it distinguishes itself from a standard perfume. While I might not have noticed the nourishing benefits from the ingredients, there was a marked difference in lasting time and I didn't need to apply a separate fragrance that day. At $60, I think Avah is a great purchase for those that love deeper, muskier scents, have a hard time getting hair fragrance to stick, or are just looking for a new scent!
