The newlywed actress' So Very Sofia scent will launch later this year (16).

The sweet-smelling perfume will feature passion fruit, Flor de Mayo Orchid, and base notes of herbal patchouli.

Sofia reveals she jumped at the chance to work with the noses at Avon when they first approached her with the idea of developing a seasonal new fragrance.

"Avon's mission is incredibly important to me," the Modern Family star says. "The brand offers women a way to build themselves up and achieve financial security, and that's something I strongly believe in.

"Making this fragrance available exclusively through Avon is my way of supporting that goal. I want to help empower each woman to take control of her life, and gain the confidence and ability to achieve her dreams."

Sofia has already posed for the fragrance's campaign shoot, which will debut at the end of the summer (16).

The new scent news continues a great month for Sofia, who was honoured in her native Colombia last week (11May16) when she was presented with the keys to the tropical city of Cartagena.

The actress, whose hometown of Barranquilla is just two hours north of Cartagena, was handed the keys during a ceremony at the city's Santa Clara Hotel. Mayor Manuel Vicente Duque was on hand to salute the beauty, stating, "Sofia more than deserves these keys. She is a Barranquillera that has put Colombia's name up high."

Sofia jetted off to her native Colombia at the beginning of May to attend the wedding of a family member. She posted a series of party pictures on Instagram, but also mixed business with pleasure by filming a commercial for beer brand Cerveza Aguila.
