Avon is a trailblazer company.
I have no friggin idear who the creator of this fragrance was/is, and with that in mind, I will declare that any disparaging words about the Avon company, most surely are based on a compulsive kind of hollow pettiness because Avon are trailblazers, be they anonymous persons or not. Sweet Honesty was released to the public in 1973?? Seriously?!?! There was a point I remember - was it mid-2000s? Sorry if my timing is off! - when loukhoum, syrupy nuts, sticky Middle Eastern dessert style scents became all the rage. Examples of this exotic gourmand sub-genre(?) include Serge Lutens Rahat Loukhoum, Montale Sweet Oriental Dream, and Keiko Mecheri Loukhoum. Avon Sweet Honesty precedes all of them (and possibly more I don’t recall, LOL!!!!!!!!!!!) with an olfactive idea that was far ahead of its day!!!!!!!!!! Admittedly, I prefer the smell and mouthfeel of marzipan over powdery confectioners sugary loukhoum, but hey, to my mind, that’s like saying toe-may-toe, toe-mah-toe. *shrugs* :/ *dead silence, shrugs again* /:
