Ok, so there were others on the call, too- blogging friends of mine that I actually know in person like Janice from 5 Minutes For Mom, Amy from Parentsphere, Arianne from To Think Is To Create, Michelle from Scribbit, Beth from I Should Be Folding Laundry, & Maria from Diary of a Blue Suit Mom. And also Kim from Jogging In Circles, Katja from Skimbaco Lifestyle, and Trisha from MomDot, all who I hope to meet someday!
And I'll help you get over the jealousy... I didn't shower, was still in my pj's AND nursing Ivy while I asked my question, and I'm wearing my hubby's socks.
And let me just say that it was very fun talking to a celebrity. He is a great guy and is CRAZY about his wife. Reminds me of my hubby!
The question that I decided to ask was the one Sharon suggested-
Possibly your most important "role" has been helping your own Mom through cancer. Your fragrance Unscripted is about creating memories. Can you give us one wonderful memory that your Mom created for you as a child. A memory that you'll never forget?
He answered that some of the best memories he had was growing up in jr high in Maine. In the winter they'd have snow days and back then in those days his mother was active and they liked to cross country ski. During the snow storms they'd go through the woods into town & then ski back- making some of the most fond memories of time with his Mom.
Then I got to ask ANOTHER question so I asked if his Mom liked the fragrance. And he answered honestly that it's taking a while to grow on her! I'm a Mom and I like it! Hope that counts...
Patrick's involvement with Avon came about through his lovely wife Jillian- she is an amazing makeup artist and I actually wear her makeup line from Avon and LOVE it.
He didn't just want to do a photo shoot & hold up a bottle. (Love that!) Patrick was very involved in the creation of Unscripted from the bottle inside out! Here are the notes of the fragrance that he enjoyed working with the chemistry on:
water anis accord
heart or mid note:
sensual fig accord- this became some of the key note as well as Patrick's favorite lavender
bottom (textural woods of the fragrance):
The idea behind it all was to follow your passion. Not to be just about HIM, but following your passion.
To thank Sharon for her help in creating my question, Avon is sending her a bottle of Patrick's new fragrance Unscripted! It does smell quite dreamy I must say. (And I have expensive taste in these things.) You'd never guess it only costs $32 a bottle! Would make a fabulous stocking stuffer for any man or woman in your life.
