Powerful and intense, Avignon evokes the medieval city in the south of France which surpassed Rome as the Catholic Church's power center in the 14th century. It's the scent of gothic cathedrals and Papal palaces, of tapestries imbued with centuries of incense. Of cold marble steps, holy relics and dark confessions. The recognizable smells of frankincense and myrrh open the high mass of Avignon, giving way to the almost eye-smarting, gloriously smoky and resinous heart. A dry vanilla and soft Roman chamomile dull the edges of this reverent fragrance. Beautiful, dark and mysterious, Avignon takes its place among the most talked about (and admired) of CdG's entire line.

Lasts only about an hour on me. I really wanted to like this based on reviews and because I love incense. I did love it for that hour tho and then it was gone. Scent Split is awesome though! Can't give them enough stars! ✨✨✨✨✨
Avignon is incense from beginning to end. On my skin, it lasts about 5-6 hours which is a touch weak for an edp. But the smell is quite divine! I recommend getting the spray because the 1 ml applicator bottles are unwieldy.
scents came nicely packaged and neat. thanks!
Very weak lasts about 5 minutes than nothing waste of money, not sure of the hype on this scent.
However, after wearing it for a few days this is a smell I would prefer as a home fragrance and not a personal fragrance. If you're looking for something that smells just like an old Catholic church then this is it.
