NEW YORK — Fragrance was atop minds at Avon’s regional meeting here last week.
Dream Life, a new woody floral, was one of several new scents unveiled to sales representatives. Described as having a "timelessly dreamy quality," the scent — featuring a Moroccan winter mimosa accord — was created around the "aura of possibilities." A 1.7 oz. edp is $22.50. Ancillary items will include a body lotion, shower gel, body powder and purse spray.
Under its new Avon Eres Tu collection, Untamed "captures the free, sexy and daring spirit of a woman," according to Avon marketers. A woody oriental, Untamed is priced $14.50 for a 3.4-oz. cologne spray. For men there is Avon Iron, a spicy Oriental, designed as a powerful scent for the self-assured man. A 3.4-oz. cologne is $14.50. Then there is the Lil’ Hugs collection for babies that includes an alcohol-free cologne for $4.99. Other items in the baby line include non-tear shampoo, body lotion and baby powder.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
