If you love fragrance and Sofia Vergara, like I do, tune into HSN tonight at midnight (EDT) and see the Modern Family star kick off the launch of her first-ever fragrance, Sofia by Sofia Vergara.
The eau de parfum is a juicy oriental flora fragrance that takes inspiration from Sofia’s native Colombia.
“The scent reminds me of Colombia because in Colombia flowers are everywhere. You walk into a doctor’s office and there are flowers. You go to your mother’s house and there are flowers,” the lovable and sexy actress exclusively told Beauty in the Bag.
Described as a sparkling cocktail, Sofia by Sofia Vergara features top notes of blackberry, sparkling cassis buds, and plum; mid notes of purple violet, Colombian rose, and Colombian orchid; and base notes of earthy woods, vanilla, and sandalwood. It’s all about energy and sexy magnetism.
“We used orchids and roses because those are my favorite flowers, and they’re Colombian,” she exclaimed. “I wanted to bring a little bit of who I am, my ethnicity, and where I’m from. I thought is was very cool to be able to get flowers from Colombia actually into the perfume.”
Gosh, Sofia, you make us proud of Colombia too.
All this floral delight is contained in a clear bottle that was inspired by the actress’s favorite stone—an emerald. The eau de parfum is available in two sizes, 50ml for $48 and 100ml for $55. The collection also includes Shimmer Body Lotion, 200ml for $30.
