AvA and The Buzz Skin

We’ve all been there–enjoying the warm weather, taking in the salty ocean air, when bugs come to ruin the moment. Now although the strong smelling, chemical-packed bug repellents work, they leave you feeling sticky, and smelling like citronella. That’s why our founder Ala worked with local Charleston brand, BUZZ to hand select a perfume bug repellent for the women of AvA. This nourishing skincare that repels insects naturally is where beauty meets bug spray. Our initial reaction was “finally!” No more sacrificing fragrance on a night out in the tropics.

As a resort wear brand, feeling good is just as important as looking good. That’s why offering a product like our fragrance meets bug repellent was a no-brainer. What better pairing than a high quality, butter-like mesh swimsuit topper and a vegan, non-gmo, paraben free perfume + repellent. With specially sourced ingredients by a culinary institute on the east coast, each formula is carefully calculated to be the best repellent for your local area. Plants like lemongrass and rosemary have natural repellent properties which are key ingredients in this perfume. The scent has notes of Grapefruit, Pineapple, Tangerine, Vanilla and Jasmine with a woody and oakmoss base all coming together to create a flirty, floral, fresh perfume.

As always, AvA is on a mission to make women feel celebrated from the clothing that they wear to the tablescapes they create to the fragrance they carry, that’s why our collaboration with BUZZ Skin was a no-brainer. Let’s keep the bugs out and the fabulous in. So go ahead and book the sea-view terrace for dinner. You'll be ready with just one AvA look and two spritzes of BUZZ.
