Sarah Jessica Parker NYC

When NYC, the new fragrance from Sarah Jessica Parker landed on my desk I was immediately drawn to the bright, multi-pattern funky box and bottle which is said to be a tribute to her famous alter ego Carrie Bradshaw. Now I personally am not a fan of Sex and The City and have seen half an episode, so have no idea what Carrie is like, but the description states she has a unique sense of style, passionate attitude and love for New York which echoes the design.

From the very first spritz I adored this scent and if you love a fruity floral then you will to and it has a beautiful mixture of notes:
  • Top notes: Mandarin from Italy, White Osmanthus and Wild Strawberries.
  • Heart notes: Gardenia, Honeysuckle, Mimosa and Red Damascena Rose.
  • Base notes: Vanilla Absolute, Sandalwood, Rum and Creamy Musk.
The scent opens up with a sweet floral mix before settling on the skin whereupon which the Rose and Gardenia scents come to life and finally the sandalwood scent, which is quite earthy and thankfully drowns down the vanilla scent which lasts for just a few seconds. Once it has settled onto the skin, the wild strawberry sits alongside the florals to create an amazing summer scent which is long lasting and lasts on my skin for hours after application. 

This is a real fun fragrance from start to finish, not at all like the celebrity fragrance I was expecting but one I have grown to love and wear a lot more than expected. It is available nationwide at stores such as Superdrug, Boots, Debenhams and The Fragrance Shop and has an RRP £48 for 100ml.

  4. Is this new?! I remember an older SJP fragrance that I was sooooo obsessed with years ago but I think it was discontinued! I'll have to find this and see if I love it just as much!

  5. I didn't even know she has her own line of perfume! The packaging is like her though, isn't it? So full of fun! I'm not surprised though that the scent also conveys it :)

  7. Ohhh I love Sarah Jessica Parker and her products! I haven't tried this one though, I'll need to test it I think! I like floral scents in the summer but find sometimes they can be overpowering, I have a feeling I'll like this one though. I love the packaging, so pretty! xx

  9. I'm tempted, I'm a fan of the Lovely scent. I'm actually not the biggest fan of the packaging but it is a very SITC kinda style. Great review, will have to investigate :)

  15. I love the packaging! I think with all fragrances it is the bottle that draws you in before you even smell it.

  16. I love Sex and the City - they are young, fun and fashionable, seems they've captured that in the perfume.

  17. I think I would love this scent although I am not sure about the price - I think a trip to Boots is in order to see if the smell is worth the price as I have been known to pay out for the smells I love LOL!
