Love to the Fullest by Reese Witherspoon is Spicy and Long-Lasting

Back during my big anniversary extravaganza, I gave away a bottle of Love to the Fullest by Reese Witherspoon perfume.

Now, finally, I’ve had the time to give it a proper review.

Because I really wanted to try this. See, Reese came out with a fragrance a few years ago called In Bloom, and I loved the stuff. It was the perfect scent for me. I gave it a B+.

Is Love to the Fullest by Reese Witherspoon just as good? Better?

We’ll see.

What does the bottle look like?

The bottle for Love to the Fullest is really simple. It’s a clear glass orb with the name of the perfume printed in cursive wrapping around the bottle.

RWLoveFullest02It also has a metal topper that you remove by pulling upward.

It isn’t the most creative or beautiful bottle I’ve every seen. In fact, it’s pretty bland compared to what you normally see in the fragrance case. But then, some people are all about simple designs. It depends on your preferences.

How does it work?

Once you pull off the metal topper, you’ve got a classic spray bottle design.

How does it smell?

This is what it’s all about, right?

First, Avon says that Love to the Fullest is an oriental floral scent with notes of black cherry, plush peony floralcy, woods and sensual amber.

If you’re like me, you don’t know what a lot of that means.

But my impression was that it was pretty spicy, and only slightly sweet and floral. And I’m talking really spicy. Very oriental.

Time to be honest: if I smelled this without knowing what it was, I wouldn’t know if this was for men or women. It’s kind of unisex. Spicy for a man, and slightly sweet for a woman.

It’s not very feminine.

And…I don’t really like spicy fragrances. I like super sweet fragrances. So, this really isn’t my thing. But, if you DO like spicy, oriental fragrances, I think you’d really like this.

How long does it last?

The really COOL thing about Love to the Fullest is that it seems to last forever. It’s the longest-lasting fragrance I’ve ever used.

After spraying it in the morning, I could still smell it on me at the end of the day (though softer and not cloying, which is good.)

In fact, I could smell it the most on my hair after a bunch of hours, even though I didn’t spray it there directly.

In other words: awesome.

The Final Verdict

It’s tough to review a perfume because fragrance is so personal. Just because I don’t like spicy oriental scents doesn’t mean Love to the Fullest by Reese Witherspoon is bad or anything. It just means it’s not right for me.

And when you take into consideration how long the fragrance lasts, this is special. With all of this in mind, including the bland bottle design, I give Love to the Fullest a…


You can pick up this fragrance from Avon online or from a local representative for $25.00.

  1. I love spicy and oriental fragrances so I’m really curious to try it. And it’s good that it lasts long. I hate having to reapply fragrances throughout the day. But I’m not keen on the packaging, it’s too simple and bland.
