Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely Sheer Eau de Parfum

Celebrity fragrances are not usually my 'thing' but every so often there is one which lands in your lap and you expect to dislike it but infact the reaction is the exact opposite. I am not a fan of Sarah Jessica Parker admittedly, I cannot stand TV programmes such as Sex and the City and the films just irritate me beyond relief but Sheer Lovely as a fragrance is one I cannot help but like.

Sheer Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker is described as being a soft, sheer and gentle follow up to the classic and much loved Lovely, a shade I have not tried or ever come across, so how it compares I cannot comment but at just £20 for 100ml it isn't going to break the bank.


Encased inside this beautiful pearlesque initial embossed bottle with a stunning gilded lid is a fragrance which is light, refreshing and undoubtedly feminine. So with top notes of orange flower, mandarin and sicily the fragrance opens with a beautiful citrus twist before gardenia, pink peppercorns and blonde woods as the heart notes bring a slightly floral aroma as it begins to settle and then the base notes of musk, vetiver and amber finish off the fragrance.

As fragrances go, this one is that perfect Spring/Summer scent in a bottle because it isn't heavy and it does have really good lastability, one spritz onto my pulse points in a morning and I can still catch a whiff of the scent on my way home some 8 hours later.

  2. I have had the original lovely many many years ago and until seeing this post I totally forgot it existed! The Lovely perfume smelt like parma violet sweets so I think I will definitely have to check this version out!

  5. If Lovely Sheer is as good as the original Lovely, then I am buying it ASAP! I still wear Lovely . I wore Lovely to work two days ago for the first time in months.

  10. I have to admit I do not own any celebrity perfumes, I go for what I like rather than have the next must have celebrity perfume. I love the price of this though, I will have to pop in and have a try of it next time I am out x

  12. I love Sex in the City but I am always put off buying celebrity fragrances, I can't explain why. I'll give this one a sniff though and see what I think.

  13. This perfume sounds lovely. Like yourself, I'm usually not sold on celebrity perfumes and rarely give them a try. Katy Perry's perfume has been the only one to convert me in the past. I think I might try this one.
