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.

Scented Candles from Avon

Pink Prosecco Candle and Melon Macaron Candle from Avon

The candles have arrived! So exciting! I wasn’t expecting them till Monday, but they came in Thursday. Just in time too, with all the storms we’ve been having here in Southeast Texas. And they smell soooooo good!! Wish there was smell-o-vision already!

I’m so impressed with these. They come in a really nice box as you can see. These are perfect for gifts, which, one of these is for my Husband’s Aunt’s 90th birthday. I think she’ll really love the Pink Prosecco Candle. It has the aromas of champagne and citrus with a hint of rose. I thought it would be the perfect celebratory candle for her.

I ordered the Melon Macaron Candle for our home. My Husband and I both love vanilla types of aromas and this one smells really really yummy. When I smell it I can almost taste it! And I have to tell you, I was a candle maker for 9 years, and I liked to load my candles with scent, and this one is really good. I cannot wait to burn it. The aromas in this one are sugared vanilla (oh yeah!), strawberries, watermelon, coconut milk and musk. It has a real depth to the smell. I’m impressed again.

And I like that they come with a nice lid too. It’s a vacuum type lid and seals in the aroma when not burning the candle. These candles have 30 hours of burning time. The heft is nice, they weigh 11 ounces. The glass is nice and thick, and the pictures are really pretty. So, for the price of these, they are really a fabulous find. They list originally at $19.99 each, but there is a special right now and you can get 2 for $24.00. Garden Party Candles this is the direct link to the special.

I hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend and that you’re staying high and dry. I’m hoping for a beautiful weekend myself, and I’m going to enjoy burning my new candle!

Cheers! Jfay
