Avon’s latest fragrance collaborations: Fergie and Lacroix

Christian Lacroix Absynthe for Avon


The scent is full of sexy floral notes and rich wood. Absinthe extract, Golden Freesia and Green Anise provide the top notes.

The mid note medley is Orchid, Saffron, and Narcissus Nector and underlying tones hint at Antique Wood, Ebony Musk, Myrrh, Amber - how could you fail to be seduced?

Like the first two Christian Lacroix fragrances for Avon - Christian Lacroix Rouge and Christian Lacroix Noir - Absynthe is captured in a bottle inspired by an intricate bull-fighting cape that Lacroix famously transformed into a couture gown.

To better reflect the whimsical world of absinthe, Lacroix modified this famous design for his perfume, which is featured in metallic gold ink on the bottle.

In a bold departure from Rouge and Noir, Absynthe is a brilliant shade of chartreuse -a statement colour that Christian Lacroix cites as an inspiration that resonates with his designs.

Details of next year's collaboration with Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie are still secret. According to reports Fergie has has her hand in developing the fragrance, perfume bottle and packaging and is even coming up with the name.

Avon's previous partners have included include Reese Witherspoon, Patrick Dempsey and Courteney Cox Arquette. We can't wait to see what Fergie comes up with.
