Avalon is one of those imaginary places I wish existed and I could visit it. Possibly with all the legendary characters being there at the time. 🙂
In place of that, smelling it suits me just fine.
Here is Ambrosia’s description of Avalon:
“A Magical Perfume full of sweet apples, waiting for harvest in the sacred groves of Avalon… the soft earthiness of hay drying in the fields on a soft late Summer’s eve… and as the sun goes down, the scent of incense arises and you can almost hear chanting as the Magic begins to grow around you…”
And here are the notes:
Top notes: apple CO2 and distillate, neroli
Midnotes: rose du mai, green mandarin, apple blossom accord
Base notes: labdanum, hay, fir balsam, amber acco
This is a magical perfume.
I get surprised by the opening each time I spray it. The hay in there is full of blooming flowers making the air around it fragrantly spicy. Apple orchard is close by but not much as the fragrant air bears only hints of it. And someone must have bit into an apple as it’s flavour is wafting in the air. I believe that someone prefers the apple with some nuts?
It’s already early afternoon as the sun has beat heavily on the hay to make the air so fragrant.
The late summer languidness is in the air and anything is possible.
Is magic in the air?
Or are we only imagining the possibilites, drowsing in the sun?
Possibly falling asleep and dreaming of the ambery sweetness in fragrant lands.
If only the dream would last…
And now for the best part. Ambrosia is offering a 5ml perfume oil to one lucky commenter! 🙂

P.S. Did you know that Avalon probably comes from Welsh afal meaning apple?
