SALUTE TO THE MBOKODO’S: WELCOME TO THE SISTERHOOD

Women’s month is here, with Women’s Day being celebrated on the 9th of August. While most of us look forward to a day off (YAY), there is a meaningful reason we take the day to celebrate women. We pay homage to the bravery of 20 000 women who marched in 1956 to the Union building in protest of the laws. 65 years later, and women still embody the same strength, resilience, and determination – if not more. Decades later, and the future of South Africa is being built on the shoulders of courageous women.

As women, we wear many hats, from mother to sister, daughter, wife, friend, colleague, and career woman. We are elegant, bold, strong, confident, and wise. Women are the epitome of resilience. Flawed. Beautiful. Fragile. Whole. Scared. Brave. We are proud that our Avroy Shlain family comprises of many women, of every generation, all shapes, and sizes in each of our regions.

We salute you ladies! We are the women who are comfortable in our skins. We are the women who grow older with grace and young-looking skin, thanks to Avroy Shlain beauty products. The women who fix each other’s crowns without telling the world they are crooked. We are the everyday glam girl with her iconic red lip, and the edgy trendsetter who believes in having colour fun. We are the women who want to be irresistible on a first date and who love shopping for our long-time love. We are women and no one understands us like us.

We want to remind you that you’re doing great! We are proud of the woman you are – and the woman you’re becoming. You applaud other women’s strengths and remind them just how strong they are. You’re changing the world one day at a time because You Are Beautifully African.

In celebration of the sisterhood we share at Avroy Shlain, here are some of our top fragrance picks for this month. A fragrance for every mood and character…

  1. Perfect for all seasons, the Perfect Blossom is a joyful and juicy fragrance that has fresh citrus and florals notes that blossom into long lasting notes of musk, wood and vanilla.
  2. You’ll feel like you hit the jackpot with the Coppélia Intense. It’s extremely versatile and has good lasting power. Layered with intense and traditional florals, balanced with a warm, desirable base of vanilla, this beautiful scent is an instant compliment getter. You can wear it everywhere, anytime.
  3. The Pink Diamond fragrance is an absolute stunner. An amazing blend of light florals, sweet fruits and a base of woody musk make this the perfect feminine scent. Mouth-watering deliciousness!
  4. The rich, feminine and exquisite After Midnight smells of mystical ylang-ylang, jasmine, sensual amber and vanilla base. It makes a perfect date scent, work scent, and would make a beautiful signature scent.

Happy Women’s Month to all the incredibly courageous women out there! Never forget who you are on your way to becoming! Wathinta abafazi, wathinta iimbokodo! Together, We Are Beautifully African.
