There’s no better way than to kick off a new (hopefully much warmer) season than with the introduction of these two incredibly fresh fragrances. I was fortunate enough to attend the launch of both, which also arrive just in the nick of time for Mother’s Day gifting.
“Seduced by an auto-erotic sensory experience, she who wears Bonbon, dresses herself in perfume whilst creating her own story. This self-indulgent moment belongs exclusively to her. She is empowered, beautiful and complete,” say Victor & Rolf, or their latest fragrance, soon to be an international sensation, BONBON. Masters to their craft, be it clothing or fragrance, the design duo follows up on their blockbuster juice, Flowerbomb, with a delicious blend of notes including orange blossom, and mandarin, with jasmine, amber, and lacing caramel throughout. The gorgeously crafted glass flacon takes on a bow shape, a mainstay of Viktor & Rolf’s collections over the years, which also proves to have a double entendre, as it mimics the shape of a bonbon candy. Available exclusively at Saks, the eau de parfum starts at $115 for the 1.7 oz bottle, with a shower gel and lotion currently also available.
Avon Femme, a light effervescent scent that is refreshing and sexy, channels modern glamour and beauty in a versatile scent and beautiful bottle that opens with jasmine, pink grapefruit and pear, followed up with magnolia, gardenia, and waterlily, and finished with amberwoods, soft peach and musk. Available now for $30 at Avon.com, or through an Avon Representative for the 1.7 oz eau de parfum spray, expect the elegant Femme to elevate the look of vanity tops and dressers with it’s multi-faceted, jewel-like flacon (it was inspired by a sparkling diamond), with the delightful scent lingering about, perfect for day AND night!
