2009 is shaping up to be a great year for Courteney Cox. She's appearing on Scrubs, working on a new sitcom, and starring as the face of Avon's forthcoming fragrance, Spotlight. Last night, Courteney was part of a cocktail party to celebrate the scent, and I was lucky enough to hear what she had to say about her first foray into the fragrance world. Read on:
On what she loves about Spotlight: "It’s not overpowering, and it’s feminine. I don’t like overpowering scents. I like when people have to get close to smell you. [...] I knew that I loved Spotlight as soon as I smelled it. It’s just perfect — it’s floral, it’s citrus ... and I’m really particular, I mean, to a fault."
On why she chose to work with Avon: "I love the way they care about their employees. They stand for such important things and are just so charitable. Until I met with the company, I didn’t know everything they did, how much they give back. I was like, 'Wow, I want to be a part of their organization.' And the scent was perfect. Had the scent not been good, had the company not been great, I might not have done it. But it worked out perfectly. [....] It was the perfect marriage."
I'll soon share my thoughts on the fragrance itself, so you can find out more before its April launch. At that point, I'll share the — wait for it — dirt on Spotlight.
