Sofia Vergara is releasing her first perfume.
It’s called Sofia by Sofia Vergara and will be launched through HSN.
The fragrance has a floral and oriental scent which apparently captures the actress’ vibrant and exotic personality.
In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Vergara spoke about her first fragrance and how the project fits into her growing brand. Vergara chose a hands-on approach by entering into a partnership with fragrance house Parlux Ltd. instead of merely a licensing the use of her name.
The actress says the fragrance is very much a reflection of her personality and roots and includes notes of Colombian Rose, Colombian Orchid, blackberry, among others.
“I have orchids and roses because those are my favorite flowers, and they’re Colombian,” Vergara told Women’s. “I wanted to bring a little bit of who I am, my ethnicity, where I’m from, and I thought it was very cool to be able to get flowers from Colombia, actually into the perfume.”
Sofia says the perfume is designed “for those women that feel irresistible.”
She also told Women’s Wear Daily, “I usually don’t like getting into things where I don’t have a say. I just don’t want to give them my name and say, ‘Do whatever you want.’ I am trying to create my brand.”
“I’ve been able to do many other projects. I have my clothing line, the makeup, the hair, the furniture, and this was something that really rounds out my brand.”
Sofía will launch on April 24 via HSN exclusively.
