If you’re looking for a new perfume, but don’t want to splurge — look no further. Sarah Jessica Parker‘s perfume Lovely by SJP is the perfect fall shade that will leave everyone wondering how you smell so good. You know this perfume is so timeless since it’s just as popular as when it launched in 2005. When The House of Wellness asked Sarah Jessica what sets her perfume apart from the others, she responded, “What I wanted was something that smellled classic and feminine, but that suited a lot of people.” The perfume has a woodsy, floral, and musk scent, so it emulates the perfect amount of girliness without being overpowering.
The inspiration behind the perfume comes from Sarah Jessica’s memories of her mother putting on her fragrance before leaving the house — she wanted to mirror that comfort and ease that she felt. “I want my perfumes to be in people’s lives for a long time like my mother had her fragrance,” the Sex in The City star also shared. “Lovely has the ability to be a lot of things to a lot of people.”
You’ll definitely be able to channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw with Lovely by SJP — it’s the epitome of modern luxury and will definitely become your signature scent. The top notes, which are those you smell immediately when the perfume touches your skin, are mandarin, bergamot, rosewood, lavender, and apple martini. The heart notes form the essence of the perfume, which is orchid, paperwhites, and patchouli, while the base notes are the scents that last the longest — which are cedar wood, white amber, and sultry musks and woods. So, you’re getting the best of all worlds with Lovely by SJP, combining all of these heavenly scents into one bottle.
