Review – Revlon Love Is On Eau De Toilette

Revlon Love Is On Review

I’ve been so into fragrances lately.  It seems every single time I smell a new fragrance that is fresh and sweet (but not saccharine), it engrains itself in my mind and I can’t stop using it.  As it stands, there are currently 5 fragrances that I’m rotating between throughout the week and even though some might call it an olfactory addiction, I’ll just call it LOVE.  Fragrances have become one of my favourite things to dabble in: They lift my spirits, trigger meaningful memories, and boost my confidence.

I received the Love Is On fragrance in a rather large box of Revlon goodies a couple of months ago, when I first started working on the #LoveSquadSA campaign.  In case you are new to the blog (or you missed this blog post), I am currently a member of the Revlon South Africa Love Squad (along with 4 other beautiful bloggers, and Bonang Matheba).  During the next few months I’ll be reviewing various Revlon products (not all are sponsored), I’ll also be featuring a couple of specific Revlon makeup products in videos, plus I’ll be sharing my knowledge with South African ladies in the form of makeup tutorials on the Afternoon Express show on SABC3.  I really hope you enjoy this exciting journey with me – today we’re starting with my first Revlon review as a #LoveSquadSA member.

Revlon Love Is On Fragrance Review

Revlon launched its first new tagline in 10 years, back in November 2014: “Love Is On”.  But what does it mean?  Well, at first glance I noticed the words are essentially a reshuffling of the letters in ‘Revlon’.  And when you think about it, ‘love’ is at the heart of Revlon.  According to Lorenzo Delpani, chief executive of Revlon Inc., “…the ‘On’ also echoes the final two letters of amorous words like attraction, flirtation, seduction, passion, adoration, infatuation.  And the ‘R’ left over after separating ‘love’ from ‘Revlon’ stands for ‘romance’…”

I think the packaging of this fragrance complements the essence of Revlon perfectly – a heart-shaped bottle.

What Revlon says about their lovely fragrance: “Love Is On features a seductive blend of masculine and feminine notes to captivate him from the moment you walk in the room.  The flirtatious fragrance bouquet of sweet berry, citrus, and velvety rose intensifies with the sensual heat of ginger, cardamom, and exotic sandalwood.  Rich notes of vanilla, amber and musk round out softer notes, developing into a singular, seductive aroma that excites the senses and pulls him close.”

The tagline of the Love Is On Eau De Toilette is “…loved by women, irresistible to men…” – specific notes have been blended together to create this refreshing fragrance, as these are most likely favoured by both genders.  It’s bright and fruity (but not sugary sweet).

I can definitely smell notes of zesty lemon, sweet berries, fresh roses, and vanilla musk.  The aroma of Italian lemon and juicy berries make this the perfect Summer fragrance, and the musky base notes give this a twist that is perfect cooler weather too.   It’s the type of fragrance that will attract compliments, but not so strong that it will cause headaches.  The scent is ideal for those who enjoy younger, less traditional fragrances.

It starts out with the crisp berry top notes, which quickly give way to the velvety musk notes.  It stays that way for a couple of hours, and lingers gently making it perfect to wear every day.

Available at leading pharmacies (i.e. Clicks, Dis-Chem etc) and departmental stores nationwide, with a price tag of R399,00.

If you are on the lookout for a smooth, slightly fruit floral scent with a smoky twist, may I suggest Revlon Love Is On?

    I must admit when I saw the bottle I thought, ah sweet and floral is probably what this is….and then I read your review! I always say that I love either fresh scents or a scent that borders on masculine…lol. So I’m definitely going to sniff this when I get a chance :)

    Congrats again on being a brand ambassador! All your readers and fans are beyond proud of you and your well deserved accomplishments <3

    • Simone 16 August 2016 / 11:50

      Well deserved recognition….. accomplishments is not the right word there I think…. I’m feeling a bit dumb and challenged reading that back. lol.

      • Luzanne 22 August 2016 / 12:13

        LOL! No worries – I totally understood what you were trying to say. 😉

    • Luzanne 22 August 2016 / 12:12

      Me too! I’m all about masculine & fresh fragrances lately, but I like to change it up every now & again with a light fruity fragrance too. :) Thank you so much for your kind words, Simone – I really appreciate your support. x

    Your photos are so bright and cheerful, i love them! I prefer unisex / masculine fragrances, so will pass on this one but i must admit: You made it sound so inviting. :)

    • Luzanne 22 August 2016 / 12:13

      Thank you, Julia!! 😀

    I really like the packaging of this perfume, my bedroom has a lot of pink and red touches and I think it will look really nice on my vanity. Might go smell this next time Im at dischem.

    • Luzanne 22 August 2016 / 12:14

      Ooooh, the fragrance will look perfect on your vanity! I love it when things are matchy-matchy. :)

    I saw this funny red “bottle” but did not look twice. Soos Simone het ek ook gedink: “floral & sweet” :-))

    Next time I will make sure not to walk by :-)

    • Luzanne 22 August 2016 / 12:15

      Haha!! I agree, the packaging does look quite interesting at first… :)

    • Simone 23 August 2016 / 14:57

      lol….it really looks sweet. I can’t wait to spot it so I can try it out.

  5. B Nkosi 16 August 2016 / 21:22

    I love this one, it smells like an expensive perfume!!! 😉

    • Luzanne 22 August 2016 / 12:15

      You’re 100% correct – it does! 😀

  6. Ashley 16 August 2016 / 21:27

    I smelled this today at dischem thanks to you, I didn’t think I’d like it as much as I do. It reminds me of Dior Hypnotic Poison, but so much more affordable.


    • Luzanne 22 August 2016 / 12:16

      YES!!! I was trying to remember which luxury perfume it reminded me of, but I just couldn’t put my finger on it. Thanks for reminding me, Ashley! 😉 xo
