Sarah Jessica Parker’s original ‘Lovely’ fragrance, introduced in 2005, was regarded as one of the few decent celebrity fragrances of the time. ‘Celeb’ fragrances are two a penny today and they’re almost always nothing more than a licensing deal with the celebrity very far removed from the creative process. In fact, I remember being at one celebrity fragrance launch where the actual celebrity couldn’t for the life of her remember what notes were in the fragrance, despite it being billed as ‘a very personal’ fragrance.
Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely Sheer is quite simple in execution with gardenia and blonde woods predominating which make it a very easy wear if you like a light and pretty floral. There’s nothing old fashioned about it – it feels modern but classic and I could quite easily adopt it as an every day spritz and go fragrance. It’s widely believed that SJP was very much involved in the creation of the original fragrance and that’s what probably marks it out as a credible fragrance in its own right rather than an amalgamation of popular notes put together 1000 miles from its namesake.
I’m not adding in a link because I have seen this at various prices across the internet so a little research will find you the best bargain.
