Sarah Jessica Parker is launching another perfume, called SJP NYC, based on her most famous character – Carrie Bradshaw. I do love me some SJP, but I have never been a fan of celebrity fragrances, and feel that I won’t love this one either. Although maybe I should wait until it’s released before I judge. According to WWD, “the scent, a fruity floral by Parker and Firmenich’s Honorine Blanc, has top notes of Italian mandarin, white osmanthus and wild red strawberries; a heart of gardenia, honeysuckle, mimosa and red rose damascenia, and a drydown of sandalwood, vanilla absolute, rum flavor and creamy musks”. Hmm, floral scents? The only one that I actually love is Flowerbomb by Viktor&Rolf.
The bottle was also designed with Carrie in mind, meant to reflect “whimsy, fun and joie de vivre” of her closet. Do not love. For some reason, the bottle screams “Ed Hardy Reject” to me, and does not at all remind me of Carrie. Sigh. The fragrance will be available at Macy’s stores in February, and will launch worldwide in May (just in time for the release of the second Sex and The City movie). Do you want to smell like Carrie Bradshaw? Are you loving the packaging? Let me know!
