I love Fragrance, but I usually stick with the tried and true. When it comes to those scented magazine inserts, I usually rip them out and throw them away. They disturb my reading pleasure. Gives me that feeling of being trapped in an elevator with someone who has taken a dip in musk and a smoking room. So when I start holding on to the inserts, keeping them with me, and searching through my subscriptions for more, I know I’m on to something.
That’s what happened when I came across Sarah Jessica Parker’s new fragrance, SJP NYC. It is a fruity and floral scent. The notes are wild strawberry and gardenia. Don’t let the mention of strawberry fool you. This is not a bubblegum-esque, syrup-like, tweeny bopper, over the top scent. It’s fruity and sweet, not exaggerated. This is a feminine and fun fragrance. For those of you who are fans, you won’t mind that the fragrance precedes the release of the Sex In The City 2 movie which will hit theatres this Spring. I was always more of a Girlfriends, Desperate Housewives type of viewer, but Sarah has definitely won me over with the fragrance. It does put me in the mood to go shopping.
