My mother is obsessed with fragrances. So is my best friend. They literally use perfume/cologne/basically any form of scent on the daily and even bring the bottles out on the road to make sure they can reapply and refresh themselves whenever. I on the other hand tend to keep a minimal fragrance wardrobe. With my signature scent in tow and just a few choice classics and newbies, I could win a capsule fragrance wardrobe award (maybe?). I do tend to experiment once in a while and when Avon and Jessy invited me to their fragrance launch, I knew I had to come.
The Sexy Starry Night Slumber Party launched Jessy Mendiola for Avon Sheer Passion Fragrance Mists. The three variants, Simply Tempting, So Alluring, and Very Captivating are colorful, fun, and sexy scents all at once. I think they fit Jessy quite well and they did say that we were to discover “the lighter side of sexy”. I honestly think that Jessy is full-on sexy though. She is super gorgeous in person and looks like a Barbie doll. Her figure is to die for also, one that I can only wish for at the moment coz I’m too lazy to get my butt off this chair every once in a while.
Jessy is also bubbly and she gamely posed and answered questions and played the slumber party themed games at the event. I like her. I’m now an insta-fan. 😀 I took videos of the event which I will hopefully be able to upload this week over at our YouTube channel.
On to the Avon Fragrance Mists.. I had a hard time choosing my favorite and I ranked the three last night like this – Top 1 Very Captivating, Top 2 Simply Tempting, Top 3 So Alluring. But today when I used Simply Tempting to try out if it lasts long, I now like it more. I may change my mind yet again tomorrow when I try So Alluring next. Here’s my brief description/first impressions of each scent:
Avon Simply Tempting | Tease your senses with the mists of sparkling caja, mango blossom, and blond wood. Sheer Passion Simply Tempting opens with a very citrusy explosive top note. The body is floral fresh, airy and light and it conveys the top freshness into the heart of the fragrance. The dry down accord brings softness.
Out of the three, Simply Tempting feels the lightest scent to wear. It’s initial scent can be described as fruity but the dry down becomes almost powdery soft.
Avon So Alluring | Get fascinated with a magnificent floral and oriental charm. At the top of Sheer Passion So Alluring, a mix of fruits brings the contrast between the fresh sweetness of the Persian lime and the juicy freshness of the Mandarin, Velvety peach and feminine delicacy at the middle.
This is my least favorite out of the three last night, but today when I smelled it again, I feel like I may have been too quick to judge. It’s initial floral scent feels a bit overpowering at first but out of the three, I find that the So Alluring dry down is the one I most like. It just smells so fresh after a while.
Avon Very Captivating | Tickle your sensuality once again. Sheer Passion Very Captivating is full of femininity. It is embraced by a modern interpretation of a floral aldehydic accord, blended with luxurious and refined flowers and delicate touch of velvety fruity rested on a sensual, radiant, and creamy oriental base.
I loved this last night darlings. Maybe it was the mood of the slumber party or the fact that it’s colored purple which I love. Or maybe because it was simply nighttime which I feel is when Very Captivating is suited the most. The scent is strong yes but it is one that you can easily wear when you’re feeling confident and sexy. It evokes a certain passion to it. I wasn’t able to note the dry down though as it got overshadowed by the other two.
Overall, these new Avon Fragrance Mists are fun and young and provides a fresh choice to the bold Imari and the classic Sweet Honesty. Congratulations to Avon Phillippines and FleishmanHillard Manila for another wonderful event! And welcome home to Avon, Jessy! 🙂 *Trivia: In case you didn’t know, Jessy modeled for Avon’s Missy line when she was younger.
