Last week, Momtrends headed on over to New York City'??s Lower East Side to the hip and happening venue, Beauty and Essex for a pretty sexy and equally stylish soiree hosted byAvon. With lavender calla lilies, roses, and hydrangea, light pink and deep purple spot lights, and signature cocktails that set the tone for the evening, the trendy lounge was transformed into the epitome of sexy. As if that wasn'??t enough, Supermodel, Activist, Mom, and the face of Avon, Christy Turlington Burns was in attendance to celebrate the launch of Avon'??s latest fragrance, Step Into Sexy.
Momtrends had a opportunity to briefly chat with the beautiful Supermodel, who, by the way, is super sweet and down-to-earth, and Christy informed us that she is so excited about this new, sexy fragrance because it makes her feel feminine and confident, quite akin to stepping into a pair of gorgeous high heels. Christy, we couldn'??t agree with you more.
Momtrends was given a bottle of the perfume after the event, and from the bottle to the scent, it'??s all kinds of sexy! For starters, the lavender bottle is tall, slim, and slender with the perfect hourglass shape. Fabulous! And the scent? Well, it has notes of black raspberry, spring freesia flower, and hints of violet leaf. Underneath that, there are hints of rosewood and exotic orchid. The base scent is long lasting, but not too overbearing. In fact, it'??s a pretty light scent and it'??ll certainly make for a lovely gift this Holiday season.
Step Into Sexy Eau de Parfum (1.7 fl oz.) is available in November 2011 for $28.00 exclusively through Avon Representatives. If you don'??t have an Avon go-to person, you can locate one by calling 1-800-FOR-AVON, or by visiting their website, http://www.avon.com.
