Avon Instinct Behind the Scenes

Avon Products, Inc. announced today that actress Megan Fox will serve as the face of Avon Instinct, a duo of fragrances for him and her. The fragrances will launch globally beginning this fall in Europe, followed by the U.S. and other regions in 2014. An iconic beauty and a smoldering presence on screen and off, Fox is the perfect fit for the intensely exotic new scents — lush, fruity floral for Her and woody aromatic for Him. Evoking the intoxicating feeling of losing inhibitions and indulging desire, Instinct is an ode to the kind of sensuality that Fox embodies.

Fragrance 101 — Get schooled on scents!

Take note:

The Fragrance Pyramid: A fragrance is a subtle blend of notes with 3 distinct layers: top, middle and base.

  • Top or Debut: The first impression — gets your attention and draws you in.
  • Middle or Heart: The full body of the scent is revealed and gives the fragrance its overall character.
  • Base or Trail: The lasting and memorable note that lingers and brings depth and richness.

Forms & Concentrations: Did you know that the differences in each form of fragrance have to do with the amount of oils or “juice”? This determines its potency.

  • Parfum: 15 – 30%
  • Eau de Parfum: 8 – 15%
  • Eau de Toilette: 4 – 8%
  • Eau de Cologne: 3 – 5%

Be Sensible: Fragrance Do’s & Don’ts

  • Keep perfume and fragrances safe from extreme cold or heat. Once a bottle is opened, it should be used. An opened fragrance will begin to fade or change its scent over time.
  • Apply the fragrance directly to skin, focusing on pulse points. Allow the heat from your body to develop the fragrance on your skin for a true impression.
  • Never try more than three scents at once, as your nose will lose its ability to differentiate between the scents. (Try keeping a clarifying scent on hand, such as coffee grinds to clear the “nose palette.”)
