Celebrity perfumes always enjoy fashionista’s great admiration thanks to their love towards their beloved icons. This time, it’s Eva Longoria’s turn to make her fans happy, as she is preparing to launch her second signature scent called EVAmour. It was back in 2010, when she released her first fragrance, Eva. EVAmour is more complex and bold than the previous scent of the ‘Desperate Housewives’ star, and it targets women trying to smell and feel seductive and sophisticated.
“I’m not used to something that is so layered, and the second one is pretty layered with some pink lady apple and red currant. The first fragrance is a little simpler,” she told WWD. “It is like when you start drinking wine. I started with white wine and have gone into the more complex, red wine. I am taking baby steps into the more complex notes.”
EVAmour has been created to reflect the real Longoria and it comes to celebrate the self-confident and sexy woman.
“You have different fragrances for different moods. If you are feeling seductive and sophisticated, wanting to go out and make a bolder statement, you wear the second one. If you are working around other people in an office, the first one might be more appropriate,” the actress explained.
Speaking about the reasons that made the gorgeous actress develop her own signature perfume, Eva said: “I have always been somewhat allergic to all perfumes and really wanted to create something that every woman could wear. So I decided to create my own fragrance that is light, fresh and unique. I think the scent of a woman is extremely sexy and this scent will prove that.”
“I wanted something clean and fresh. Something that smelled like you just got out of the shower. And that’s how I came up with the scent,” explained the actress.
Developed by perfumer Annie Buzantian, EVAmour has a romantic and seductive floral – fruity – musky character. The fragrance is composed of the juicy notes of bergamot blossom, pink lady apple and red currant that fall over tiger lily, rose, frangipani and pink peony representing the floral heart of the perfume. The bottom notes of the fragrance come to be pleasantly warm thanks to the woody and musky tones, amber and vanilla orchid.
“When we saw it [the perfume], we just fell in love with it. It really reflects who she is. It is very seductive, but there is also this playfulness to it that plays off her personality. The red colored bottle represents what she stands for in terms of women, power and amour. It all ties back to who she is, and I love when there is that deep connection between the fragrance and the person,” says Betsy Olum, general manager of beauty and merchandising strategy at HSN.
Eva Longoria’s EVAmour will be exclusively available at the Home Shopping Network (HSN) on March 29.
