Scented, Not Stirred

The essence of a Bond Girl, for me, was best defined upon my first viewing of Dr. No, when Ursula Andress emerged from the sea donning her now infamous white bikini. Her magnetism – a mixture of sexiness, empowerment, mystery and intellect – has served to define generations of women accompanying 007 during his numerous celluloid exploits.

On Thursday, November 13, Avon hosted a screening of the latest James Bond installment, Quantum of Solace. In the film, Daniel Craig reprises his role of Bond as he seeks justice for the death of Vesper Lynd, his love interest in Casino Royale. The film doesn’t disappoint – driven heavily by astonishingly involved action sequences and – as always – a fresh crop of alluring female sidekicks.

One of those female leads, British actress Gemma Arterton, plays Agent Fields – an employee of MI6 sent to deliver Bond back to safety. In conjunction with her role, Arteron is the face of a new fragrance from Avon – Bond Girl 007 – created to bottle the allure of the big screen’s most sought-after heroines.

A blend of florals and warm woods, the scent has top notes of white peach, orange blossom, jasmine and freesia, with a hint of musk. Its curvaceous, silhouette-shaped bottle completes the sophisticated appeal.

So – even if you can’t wake up with Daniel Craig next to you, at least you can trigger your pulse every morning with a hint of 007.

You can purchase your very own bottle of Bond Girl 007 via any Avon representative nationwide by calling 1-800-FOR-AVON, or visiting
