I'll send this to Writers, but I'm guessing they will want some edits, including some examples of what you mean.

comment why is googling the definition of “aviance” so difficult?
@Janus Tim remarked in the comments as well. I think oerkelens and I posted at the same time, both of us with the French spelling, and lead the pack there. Pretty funny.

comment why is googling the definition of “aviance” so difficult?
@Tim That is extremely funny. I changed the spelling on that thrice and still got it wrong. It's the French spelling; I'm sure that's why it got me.

@Marthaª That's true, but this question is unlikely to help future visitors. If it were broadened into something like "is this a commonly confused phonetic pair", we could leave it open. As it is, I think the user has a helpful answer.

Maybe that person was pronouncing it incorrectly, or maybe you misheard, or maybe you misremembered, but everything you describe suggests that you are looking for ambiance.

You have done a good job explaining the situation. This question appears to be off-topic because it is about misremembering a word.

I think you mean ambiance. There isn't any English word aviance.

comment Unintentional Lies and Misinformation
Your answer would be improved with a link to a dictionary, an explanation of the meaning of this word, and why you think that this word meets the requirement spelled out in the question.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about some assumption having to do with American education and not English.

You must specify why you think you can't use "complete and utter" in this context and demonstrate some effort you have made to answer the question on your own.
