Sofía Vergara: Perfume is in my blood

Sofía Vergara found creating her second scent easier than her debut perfume.

The Modern Family star has many strings to her bow, including a burgeoning beauty career.

She first dipped her toes into the perfume market with debut scent Sofía by Sofía Vergara last year. Now she's gearing up for the launch of Love, which hits shelves in October.

“In Colombia, we put cologne on babies. We’re very into that, and grow up with perfumes and colognes being part of your daily routine," she smiled to WWD.

"For a long time, I started liking men’s colognes and perfumes - I thought they were more interesting.”

Her heritage has also proved useful when it came to the advertising campaign for Love.

“With me, since I speak Spanish, they target both markets. When I’m doing the commercial in English and Spanish at the same time, they don’t have to hire two people. They get a very good deal with me," she laughed.

Becoming a perfumer is a constant learning curve for the 43-year-old, who is also juggling planning her wedding to actor Joe Manganiello with work commitments.

Getting her hands dirty in the perfume world was no chore though.

“The first time I had to learn to understand the process, and we went back and forth a lot, because I wanted to make sure it was something I’d be proud to wear. If people told me that I smelled good, I wanted to be able to say ‘it’s my perfume.’ The second time it was easier, especially as we built Love on the Sofía scent," she explained.
