Tennis sensation Maria Sharapova can honestly say that she has had quite a bit of luck on her side recently. She has captured the title of 2014 Women’s French Open Champ and is quite the businesswoman as well. The 27-year-old is now diving into the beauty business, as if she wasn't busy enough. The New York Daily News reported on Wednesday that Sharapova has signed on with Avon to introduce two new fragrances this fall, appropriately named Luck.
There will be both a woman’s scent, as well as a men’s version. The exhilarating fragrances come in unique looking bottles that were specially designed for the blond beauty. The luxurious scents is said to contain hints of sparkling citrus, luscious red berries, white florals and warm sandalwood. Sharapova is excited about this new step that she has taken.
“Having the opportunity to partner with Avon as the face of Avon Luck is such an honor,” she said in a statement. “I've been incredibly lucky in my own life and I love what Avon Luck stands for. I always say the harder you work, the luckier you are because you strive for bigger goals! So I am excited to represent a fragrance that reminds us to savor and truly enjoy our triumphs.”
The five-time Grand Slam winner is a busy girl. Not only does she hit hard on the tennis court, but she also has her candy business, Sugarpova, as her first venture into becoming an entrepreneur. She recently posted on her Twitter account that she is turning an old hair salon into a pop-up shop for Sugarpova at this year’s Wimbledon Championships. The grass courts of this third Grand Slam event is where she will be vying to win that title as well.
The Russian is already in London to not only compete later this month, but she is also spending her time supporting her tennis star boyfriend, Grigor Dimitrov, as he plays in the Aegon Championship, which is considered to be the prelude to Wimbledon. He has moved into the third round after beating British player, James Ward.
Maria Sharapova seems to have it all. As she states in the behind-the-scenes video for her new Avon fragrance, “Celebrate good fortune and success in your life with Avon Luck,” it sure looks like her luck is not running out any time soon.
The two Avon scents will be available in Europe this September and in the US in October. Sign up on Avon’s website to be on the waiting list as one of the first to try this exciting product out. What will be next for Maria Sharapova?
