NEW YORK (AP) -- New French Open champion Maria Sharapova has something else to celebrate: a new fragrance.

The tennis ace is the face of Avon Luck, for men and women. It's her first partnership with the beauty brand, but not her first perfume; she launched an eponymous one with Parlux nearly 10 years ago.

Avon Luck will be launched in Europe in September and then will be rolled out in North America and Asia after that.

Sharapova says Avon Luck will encourage people to "savor and truly enjoy our triumphs," which is what she's been doing lately. She won her fifth Grand Slam title with her French Open victory over Simona Halep last Saturday.
