First Aromas of Autumn

Seasonal Candles arriving in Campaign 19!

Hello everyone! Hope you’re doing fabulously!

It’s so exciting with Fall being right around the corner – Yay! It’s definitely one of my favorite times of year. I love smells, the crispness in the air – it’s just all kind of magical…

And speaking of smells in the air… I’m here to give you an inside peek preview at what delicious and delightful Autumn scents are arriving just next campaign for you!

Let’s begin with candles — glorious candles! If you’ve followed me for a bit you’ll know that I am a huge candle lover as well as an ex artistic candle maker. I loved making unique aroma blends. That was one of my most sought after designs for people – to have me make a unique aroma blend for them. So, I do enjoy a gorgeous scent blend, that is for sure.

And I will tell you that I have been very impressed with the Avon candles that I have tried thus far, and certainly look forward to trying these very tempting Autumn themed candles.

Here is a quote from Kate Berger, Avon Fragrance Brand Manager, on Avon’s approach to candles:

We’ve taken a whole new approach to candles! By working directly with world-renowned perfumers and using superior raw materials, we’ve increased the overall quality of the fragrance oil going into each candle.

I can tell you as a candle maker, the raw materials utilized make all the difference in the world. If you begin with inferior wax or fragrance oils, then you cannot achieve an awesome product, but with superior materials – you achieve a superior product. Makes perfect and easy sense – or scents!

And let’s get on with the scents, shall we? We know they’re going to smell fabulous, it’s just going to be tough to choose…

Creamy Vanilla Frosting Candle – Ohhhh…. they know my weaknesses! Haha! I’m a vanilla fiend! How about you? And this one has notes of vanilla frosting, sweet cupcake and creamy caramel. Get OUT!

Autumn Stroll Candle – This one’s description says – Breathe in the cool Autumn air with notes of crisp apple, red maple leaf and honeyed acorn. Sounds wonderful!

Fall for Berries Candle – Like a long walk in the woods, explore notes of cranberry, pink currant and crushed cassis. Berry is always a very pleasant aroma this time of year.

Spiced Apple Cider Candle – Now this screams Fall, don’t you think? It says, Welcome Fall with notes of apple cider, cinnamon and star anise. The perfect Fall scent combo!

Maple Pumpkin Pancakes Candle – This one has me intrigued for sure – It says, Let’s go pumpkin picking! Start your day with notes of golden pumpkin, buttermilk and maple syrup. That’s so unique and sounds really yummy. This aroma is available both in a jar as a 3 wick candle and also in a cute little ceramic pumpkin. You’ll get more burn time with the jar, but the ceramic pumpkin is just too cute for your Autumn decor.

Now, how about some fragrance for you to wear?

New Autumn Berry Twist Fragrance Collection

This smells really really good! How do I know? See that pink circle area? That’s a rub and smell patch! Yes, I’ve been taking pictures of my What’s New Book (preview book for Representatives) and giving you an inside view. This particular Campaign 19 preview book was just so exciting to me with all the Autumn previews that I had to share.

This collection consists of a Body Mist, Body Cream, Shower Gel, and Hand Cream, all priced separately. This is a limited edition collection. Here is the scent description for you: Tangy sweetness with ripened blackberries, luscious pomegranate, and a warm twist of amber spice. And I do concur that it is a very delicious berry aroma with a nice back note of the warm spice.

The Campaign 19 book will also have a scented page for you to try, so be sure to let Avon know that you’d like to receive a book when you place your Campaign 18 order – they will ask you during checkout. Bath time is going to be so luxurious, and you’re going to smell so pretty!

Avon Scent Stories Collection

And, another fun fragrance collection for you!

This is Avon’s Stories Collection. It’s a collection of stories about scent to express all the beautiful sides of you – Isn’t that so fun and awesome!

There are 4 Scent Stories –

Skip a Beat Eau de Toilette – This is a Fresh fragrance with joyful notes of sparkling lemon blossom and fresh water lily.

Work Your Magic Eau de Toilette – Warm fragrance blended with hypnotic notes of lotus blossom and golden honey.

Something Amazing Eaude Toilette – Fruity fragrance with confident notes of juicy pomelo and vibrant solar florals.

Cloud Nine Eau de Toilette – Floral fragrance with blissful notes of blushing peony and creamy whipped vanilla.

So something for every story about you – a Fresh fragrance, a Warm fragrance, a Fruity fragrance and a Floral fragrance.

I do have Scratch and Sniff sample stamps of these. Let me know if you’d like to give any/all a try. If you’re a Campaign 18 customer, I’ll be happy to mail these samples for you to try – free!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this Autumn Aroma preview. Campaign 19 will begin Wednesday, August 21st, so mark your calendars! That’s when all of this fabulousness will be available. The Scent Stories are actually available now, priced at $9.99 each, original price is $17.00 each. But keep an eye out for the candles and Autumn Berry Twist collections.

Have fun shopping Campaign 18 and all it’s specials till August 20th – Be sure to click to receive your free Campaign 19 brochure upon checkout and also once you place your order, send me an email (jfaysbeauty@att.net) if you’d like me to send you some Scent Stories Scratch and Sniff samples. Yay!

Till next time – stay fabulous!

Avon Pressed Powder and Velvet

Avon True Color Flawless Mattifying Pressed Powder

One thing that I’ve always loved and that I still always have to have is my face powder. No matter what look I’m going for, soft, diva, or even Halloween, I must finish my look with powder or I do not feel complete.

Avon’s True Color Flawless Mattifying Pressed Powder is super fabulous, and was a marvelous find for me. The face powder that I’ve used in the past is really good, but can go on quite heavy (especially when using a new compact), but the Avon Pressed Powder goes on much more lightly. I still get great coverage, but it’s a lot less heavy, so therefore does not add age to my face. My face feels really good after applying and looks smooth and matte. — So fabulous! The sponge is light as well and curves easily to the contour of my nose and face.

My shade of choice is Neutral. It’s 3rd down on the color scale. There are 10 shades to choose from, so pretty much a shade for everyone! The benefits of this product are that it does not cake (yes, it is lighter), it has skin matching pigments, it is a sheer to medium coverage powder, it’s comfortable to wear and it eliminates shine. Yes — I agree with all the benefit statements!

Avon’s True Color Flawless Mattifying Pressed Powder is on sale right now for $8.99 a compact, original price is $12.00. Let me know what shade you choose!

And now I’d like to talk to you about Avon’s new Velvet Perfume. Oh wow…. Color me super impressed… This perfume is so beautiful. And it does remind me of Velvet.

Velvet Perfume by Avon

Avon describes Velvet as a top quality Parfum that is lush, warm and decadent. This is a very accurate description.

I was a candle maker, custom scent blender, and perfumer for over 9 years, so I suppose I do have a “nose” for fragrances, and my nose is very happy with this fragrance. This aroma really does remind me of a perfume that I would blend. It is unique and truly a scent-sational journey. The scent journey first begins with fig and pomegranate from the Mediterranean as the top note, then the middle note of rose from Bulgaria, and lastly, velvet patchouli from Java.

The bottle is so beautiful too, and it’s topped with a velvet cap, so you know you’re in for a decadent experience.

I actually have Velvet samples that I will be sending out to my Free Sample Club members this month, so that you can experience Velvet for yourself.

The Velvet Perfume is on sale now as well for $20.00 a bottle (spray bottle 1.7 oz.), original price is $30.00, so it is a fabulous time to get your hands on a bottle of this premium scent.

I will let you in on an Avon Insider perk – Tomorrow and Wednesday will be Free Shipping days for orders of $25.00 +. They will be releasing the code for that tomorrow, so I will definitely share that with you when it’s released. Perfect timing, hey? Plus right now the new Lip Tattoo pre-launch special is still on and you can get 2 of those for $20.00 plus an Avon Compact Mirror. I believe the mirror has a leopard skin design – so awesome! You’ll be all fixed up – and not have to pay any shipping! Yay!

Happy shopping everyone, and remember to check out the Outlet Section, the huge sale is still on with up to 65% off during this semi-annual sale.

Delicious Silky Vanilla Body Spray

What could be better than the aroma of vanilla and brown sugar? You smelling like vanilla and brown sugar! Oh yeah!

Let me tell you, this Avon Senses Silky Vanilla Body Spray is too yummy. It is not heavy or overpowering in any way. When I first tried it, it reminded me of vanilla extract – I got a hint of liqueur – that definitely must be the brown sugar. It just smells so delicious. It stays softly upon the skin, giving you a nice hint of delish. I cannot wait to spray it on after my bath/shower. It makes me feel so pretty, pampered, and happy.

This Silky Vanilla Body Spray is on sale right now on my Avon website for $4.99 (originally $10.00) and there is a Silky Vanilla Set which consists of the Silky Vanilla Body Spray, Shower Gel and Body Lotion, all for – get this – $10.00!

The Avon Senses line consists of many beautiful scent combinations like Blushing Cherry Blossom, Fresh Cucumber and Melon, Energizing Green Tea and Verbena, and Juicy Pomegranate and Mango. Plus more. Here is a link to the page that came up when I did a search on my Avon website for Avon Senses. It’s definitely worth a look-see as most everything in this category is on sale right now. Tomorrow begins Campaign 13, so hopefully these will still be on special, but you may want to be sure to check them out today.

True Gent Men’s Fragrance Set from Avon

True Gent Men's Fragrance Set from Avon: https://www.avon.com/product/true-gent-3-piece-set-67245?rrec=true&rep=mybeauty

Hold up! Stop the presses! There’s a new star in town!

Introducing a brand new men’s fragrance from Avon, just on the scent scene, called True Gent.

And let me tell you…. this smells FABULOUS!!! It smells quite expensive too. My first reaction was that it reminded me of a Chanel Coco for men. It has a “I want to sniff your neck” kind of effect. It is not harsh on the nose at all – and I was, along with being a candle maker for many years, also a perfumer, and blended many signature aromas for both candles and fragrances, so I was completely blown away by the delicate blending of the ingredients listed in this formula. That’s what caught my attention right away, was the list of scents that went into the making of True Gent.

The list includes: Laurel Leaf, Bergamot, Tonka Bean, Creamy Musk, Smooth Tobacco, and Vanilla Suede. What a combo! What a scent! It’s hard for me to put it in words… But every note, from the beginning, to middle, to end, is just wonderful. It ends on a very soft and smooth note, which I pick up at the very beginning as well, I believe this must be the Vanilla Suede – it’s both soft and masculine. Avon describes True Gent as “a masculine scent that is sensitive yet strong.” I totally agree.

The picture above is the set I purchased for my Husband as an anniversary gift. We both really love this fragrance. I purchased the set from Campaign 11, which was last campaign and I got this 3 piece set for $24.00 with a coupon code. Well, this new campaign, Campaign 12, has it listed at $24.00 without needing a coupon! Yay! Regular list price for this set is $48.00, and the spray bottle listed on its own is $35.00, so hey, you may want to take advantage of this great deal while you can. Campaign 12 is live till May 28th.

Now’s a great time to think about Father’s Day gifts, so snag it now and you’ll be set to go. There are other fabulous Father’s Day gift ideas listed now as well on my Avon site like a Mesmerize Sports Car Decanter Cologne, other fragrance gift sets, jewelry and watches.

Okay gang — I’ll sign out for now. Hope you’ll stop by and check out all the specials and deals going on for Campaign 12. Remember, you can still shop the book – It’s a virtual Avon book which you can peruse by clicking the arrows to turn the pages, or you can shop by category. Have fun, and I’ll see you next time!
