Free your mind but hypnotize your senses with hypnotic notes of Christian Lacroix’s Absynthe from Avon. Following the success of Avon’s previous fragrance collaborations with the esteemed fashion designer, Christian Lacroix Rouge and Christian Lacroix Noir, Absynthe mixes an array of florals and rich woods in the perfect little bottle.

“Absinthe, a mesmerizing potion known as the green fairy, is still one of the world’s most seductive mysteries,” explains Lacroix. “Its rich, mystical color reminds me of the citrine and topaz gemstones found on exotic embroideries – a great inspiration to my fashion and newest fragrance.”

Christian Lacroix’s Absynthe is available exclusively through Avon representatives, but 3 lucky BN readers will be able to snatch up the scent without any Avon calling. Simply send an email by Monday May 25th to with “Absynthe” in the subject line and be sure to include your name, telephone number and email address.
