The movie, Chasing Papi was one of my guilty pleasures growing up.. and still is. I never expected Sofia Vergara to take off in her career as much as she has on Modern Family. But she has really proven that she has great acting range and she’s still drop dead gorgeous in her 40’s! So, when Avon teamed up with her to collaborate on a new fall fragrance called So Very Sofia, I knew it was going to be good!
So Very Sofia is a bold and feminine fragrance that combines yummy fruits with tropical florals as well as fragrant herbs for one hell of a scent. The fragrance opens with notes of ripe passion fruits and then middle notes reveal Flor de Mayo Orchid, the national flower of Colombia (where Sofia’s from), and the base notes finishes to reveal herbal patchouli. The fragrance also comes with a complimenting body lotion ($15 / 200ml / Available at Avon in September) and shower gel ($15 / 200ml / Available at Avon in September).
Price: $38 / Available at Avon in September
For a while now, I’ve been trying to get away from my usual go-to scents and try something different. I always say that you never know how a perfume is going to really smell on you until you try it on. I was very happy that So Very Sofia paired well with my body chemistry and had me fall for something sweet yet spicy, a mix I haven’t tried up until this point. It’s a very fun, yet feminine fragrance that anyone can wear and the scent seems to stick with me throughout the day, which I look for in a fragrance. But I can also deepen the scent by pairing it with the body lotion for an added boost. The shower gel is a nice treat to put on for special occasions and I love how the scent fills up my bathroom. Celebrity perfumes can be a hit or a miss in my books usually, but I think this one is unique enough to stand out and become a favourite of many. Overall, the scent is as playful and provocative as it’s described and definitely worth looking into if you’re looking for something similar.
