Charmed, I’m Sure!

Charmed from Avon

Avon’s captivating new fragrance, Charmed, is receiving some love in the press! It was named as one of “The Best New Fall 2020 Fragrances” on Forbes.com, and it received a stellar write-up on Allure.com.

Avon’s Charmed is named a Best New Fall 2020 Fragrance in Forbes among other fragrance giants’ newest releases such as Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privee’, Gucci Bloom Profumo Di Fiori, Cartier La Panthe’re Parfum, and Giorgio Armani My Way, elevating Avon at a higher standard to be reckoned with. I’ve been telling you guys, Avon is bringing it, they have raised their standards, and they are going luxe. I’m so happy and so proud for them, and very happy and proud to be a member of the Avon family.

Here is what Forbes.com and Allure had to say about this fabulous and attention getting fragrance:

Avon Charmed (Forbes.com)

Talk about peacocking! To celebrate their 134th anniversary, on October 27 Avon is launching a $1,200 fragrance housed in an 18K gold-plated peacock bejeweled with 21 Swarovski crystals, which comes tucked into a wooden collectible box. Avon has been introduced fragrances since 1886, but this is by far their most opulent one yet. To commemorate the year the brand was founded, only 1,886 bottles will be available. The scent spotlights three natural Orpur ingredients, which means “pure gold” in French and are the of the highest quality. The trio is rose, jasmine absolute and patchouli. $1,200.

It doesn’t get nearly enough credit, but Avon is an amazing source of truly lovely fragrances. Go ahead and take a glance at the selection of Avon’s perfumes on the brand’s website and you’ll find a wide variety of scents — nearly 40, in fact, all ranging from $17 to $50. But while the low price points are among the reason that Avon’s perfumes are so appealing, it turns out smacking a $1,200 price tag on a fragrance only increases its desirability.

OK, so Avon isn’t exactly charging $1,200 for a perfume arbitrarily. Charmed, which launches in late October, is a celebration of 134 years of Avon, and its opulence reflects the momentous occasion. The bottle is absolutely incredible both aesthetically and compositionally. An 18K gold-plated peacock sits atop a beautiful column, its tail embellished with 21 Swarovski crystals. (And it comes in a gorgeous, wooden, collectible box to boot.)

And, I have some info that you’ll not find in the press, but rather only from an Avon Insider, like me.

When you purchase this lovely collectible (think how fabulous a memory this fragrance would be for a bride…), you will receive an exclusive gift set.

The First Geniture Set

The First Geniture Set is not for sale. It can only be acquired with a $500.00 purchase from Avon’s new Luxury Edit Catalog.

(I will go over the Luxury Edit Catalog in another blog post, but here is a link to all the items in the Catalog that are eligible for this offer.)

AND — another Avon Insider/Representative jewel that I can gift you — Your cost for a bottle of Charmed Eau de Parfum, if purchased from my website, is $1,000.00 vs. $1,200.00.

So, if you’re in the market for a luxury perfume or for a special gift for someone that will hold a beautiful and meaningful memory for many years (wedding gift, anniversary gift, etc.), I hope you’ll stop by and give Charmed a look, and a chance to fill that special need for you.

Till next time, stay fabulous, and follow your joy!

Avon Flourish Peony Rose Perfume

The new Peony Rose perfume is so beautiful. You’ve probably already read my review of this fragrance, but it is worth reposting! And there is also the Honey Blossom perfume with the aroma blend of Sparkly Apple Blossom and Honeysuckle Nectar. Two gorgeous floral blends for you to enjoy.

Now, how about something to pretty you up? I know for me I miss getting dolled up to go out on the town with my honey, but I have a feeling it will not be much longer now till we’re able to mingle at least a bit more than now. Gotta stay positive!

Much love,

Flourish with Avon’s newest Perfume Release, Peony Rose, Plus new Mother’s Day Gifts!

It’s Your Time to Bloom

Hello! And happy April everyone!

You all most likely know by now that Avon is there for you with personal care items that you can shop for online and have delivered direct. So with that, I thought I’d go in a more fun direction with you today. Even though we may be in temporary lock-down, that doesn’t mean that we cannot still enjoy goodies that brighten our days and gives us hope for tomorrow’s celebrations and get-togethers.

With it looking like Easter may be in the tank this year (hoping not), I am choosing to look ahead to May and Mother’s Day. And as I wrote to you the other day, my Anniversary is coming up in May, so yeah, May is where my focus is on at the moment for planning to go out and celebrate life and family. That is unless something else has changed since I began this post. Everything changes so quickly these days it’s hard to keep up sometimes. But anyway… That was a long round-about to get to the new stuff that was just released by Avon…

So without further ado – Introducing Avon’s newest fragrance, Avon Flourish Peony Rose!

Avon Flourish Peony Rose

The essence of lush, glistening blooms in the early morning light, this fresh composition of watery florals shines with notes of dewy peony petals, pink currant and sheer musk.

This fragrance smells soooo good. You of course get the floral at first whiff, then there is a freshness, and an undertone of slight sweetness. It’s really beautiful. It’s not too heavy on the rose notes, and not too much for my sensitive nose. It does not smell “old-fashiony” in the least bit – it’s rather bright and fresh I would say. I will definitely wear this. No weird after-notes of any kind. I’m typing this review as I am trying it on and experiencing the first notes right from the bottle, then first applied to my skin, and then the transformation of the fragrance notes as it sits upon my skin. It just seems to get prettier, and a bit softer. And you know – I do get the water notes. That’s the fresh smell I was picking up. Avon’s description says “glistening blooms in the early morning light” and “watery florals” “dewy peony” – Yes – definitely! I get the fresh water notes for sure! And the pink currant must be the sweetness in the background that I’m picking up. It’s so cool – Their description is right on, and I am experiencing every note that they describe. They do mention sheer musk, so that must be the note that ties it all together beautifully into one cohesive and enjoyable aroma. Yay! A new favorite fragrance and perfume!

I hope you’ll give this one a try. It’s perfect for Spring and Summer. Here’s a link directly to the Flourish Page on my Avon website. You can meet the perfumer and read his note about this new fragrance. Peony Rose is listed at $35.00 a bottle, but when shopping with me as your Representative, it is listed on my site at $20.00. So awesome!

Okay — So I told you that there are new Mother’s Day gifts that launched with this new Campaign 9, right? Well, one product in particular caught my eye, so I made sure to order one to show you.

This is called Blushing Beauty Powder Blush. Look how cute this is!

Blushing Beauty Powder Blush

It’s blush that comes in a little cardboard type container and it has its own little powder puff!

This is so retro you do not even know!

I had a similar little container of powder. It wasn’t mine though. It had belonged to my Great Grandmother. It was larger than this one, very similar, but it was face powder. It had been given to her by my Great Uncle and he had handwritten a note to her from him on the little container. This reminded me of that as soon as I saw it.

New Blushing Beauty Powder Blush

It’s so cute – it fits in the palm of your hand.

I bet your Mom would get a kick out of one of these too. She may remember her Grandmother using beauty products similar to this as well. Avon is so cool to make these memorable products that bring back great memories that warms our hearts – especially now – it means so much.

Blushing Beauty Powder Blush – Perfect for Mother’s Day

There are 3 shades of blush to choose from – Ink Red, India Red (that’s the one I got), and Ginger Beige. Each one of these little cuties is just $8.00 on my Avon website.

I hope you enjoyed meeting these fabulous new products as much as I have. Both of these have brought me much joy – Joy to my senses and joy to my soul. I will have fun wearing each one, and I hope you will too!

Avon is back up and shipping. I just received a package from them – as you can see – it was shipped very quick and I’ve been seeing others that are so excited to be receiving their packages as well. It’s a link to the outside world that we can still enjoy, thank goodness. And Avon is being very safe. You can read about their safety guidelines as well as UPS’ on my Avon website. They answer any concerns you may have.

I am hoping that we can all get back to “normal” again very soon. I appreciate you stopping by to visit me here. Leave me a comment – I’d love to hear from you!

You can stop by and visit my Avon website and browse all the new goodies anytime you like. Check out the new brochure, shop by category (there’s a new Mother’s Day category for ease of shopping for Mom), check out the How-To videos and guides – there’s just a lot of fun stuff to help get your mind off the negative and to hopefully brighten your day. Not to mention stuff to help you look and feel pretty (awesome)! Yay! And I’m still picking up the tab for your shipping when you shop from my webstore (on all purchases of $60.00+)! Yay-Yay!

Here’s a look at some of the other new goodies just listed for Mother’s Day:
