– Avon: Print Ads
US direct-sales company Avon is teaming up with global fashion house Emanuel Ungaro to launch two new signature fragrances, one for women and one for men. U by Ungaro for Her and U by Ungaro for Him are slated to launch globally starting this August, initially in the US. The new scents will appear in Avon’s brochure, which more than five million Avon representatives distribute throughout the world. The brand’s ambassador, American actress Reese Witherspoon, will feature in global print and television ads for the two fragrances.
Both were created by noses at International Flowers and Fragrances (IFF). The women’s juice is a fresh, woody floral featuring top notes of bergamot blossom, wet freesia and pepper blossom, among others, with a base note that blends iris, sandalwood and musk. The men’s scent is a woody aromatic watery blend that combines top notes of green mandarin leaf, ruby red grapefruit and pomegranate with middle notes of cardamom, cedarleaf and immortal flower. The base note is composed of vetiver, patchouli, sandalwood, tonka bean and Peru balsam.
Avon teamed with French fashion heavyweight Christian Lacroix for the creation of a signature fragrance line last spring, resulting in what the beauty brand says was its most successful launch to date. Selective fragrances for the Ungaro brand are manufactured by Italian company Ferragamo Parfums.

As we just mentioned in the previous update, Avon is selling Women’s Empowerment Bracelets online for $3 (£1.50) each. All 100% of the net proceeds are donated to the Avon Empowerment Fund to end violence against women. At least one in three women have been abused around the world.

GlamourMagazine.co.uk reports that Reese Witherspoon has been offering her advice to Nina Ricci Artistic Director, Olivier Theyskens.
Theyskens says, “My best friend Reese has helped me design [the latest collection] — she is always giving me materials and advising me.”
The recently divorced mom of two has been wearing Nina Ricci shoes on the red carpet, an insider tells Glamour, continuing, “Olivier and Reese herself love the combination of the brand and her style.”
Could Estée Lauder be on the verge of signing its second Oscar winner? According to a industry sources, word has it that the beauty giant is in talks with Reese Witherspoon about becoming the newest face of Estée Lauder, joining an illustrious roster that already includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Liya Kebede, Carolyn Murphy, Elizabeth Hurley, and, most recently, Hilary Rhoda.
The 31-year-old actress and mother of two, who won an Academy Award in 2006 for her role in Walk the Line, is rumored to be in the elementary stages of discussion, with the source adding that there is no concrete contract just yet. Witherspoon, just one of a pool of coveted actresses that have yet to pledge their allegiances to any one beauty brand—including Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts, and Keira Knightley—recently agreed to be dressed by Nina Ricci’s Olivier Theyskens for all formal public outings, and reportedly has a deal to wear Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry on the red carpet exclusively.
An Estée Lauder spokesperson declined comment. Witherspoon’s publicist was unavailable for comment.
