If you read my blog regularly you probably know I also sell vintage and pre-loved clothing, what you might not know is that I’m also an Avon lady. I’ve loved Avon products for years for their quality and their fantastic price points compared to premium brands of a similar quality and I love that Avon is such a woman centered company, dedicated to improving the lives of women the world over.

In 2007 Reese Witherspoon became Avon’s first Global Ambassador and also serves as the Honorary Chairman of the Avon Foundation, focusing on breast cancer, domestic violence and emergency relief initiatives.

Well, Reese has now colaborated with Avon to produce her first ever fragrance In Bloom. The fragrance itself is a floral oriental woody fragrance that sparkles with a provocative blend of feminine floral notes.

Targeted at the “multi-faceted woman whoโ€™s down to earth yet glamorous, elegant, authentic and confident.” It comes packaged in a rounded floral bottle with a lid designed like a flower in full bloom.

Georgia Peach Tea Leaves, Crisp Greens
Star Gardenia, Magical Magnolias, Night Blooming Jasmine
Enveloping Cashmere Woods, Hypnotic Florals, Amber Wood Crystals

Retro Chick has one bottle of this fragrance, and a cute rose trim gold satin clutch to give away, and 2 sample sizes for 2 runners up!

“In developing In Bloom, I found myself drawn to the scents of my childhood in Tennessee, we had a great big Magnolia tree in the back yard, and it’s that beautiful white blossom that inspired the perfume. In Bloom is indicative of where I am in my life today. I’m feeling very strong and independent, and so happy, so full of life. The fragrance truly captures that feeling – it’s very sensual, very romantic and alluring.โ€ – Reese Witherspoon
