I would say I’m biased when it comes to SJP products but honestly? I didn’t love her previous fragrances. When I saw this new offering, however I was excited, Sarah Jessica herself dubs it “a fragrance for humans”. Although I do like the occasionally candy sweet scent I don’t love florals and tend to err on the side of masculine so unisex is right up my street and that’s just what this is.
It has a distinctly ‘aftershavey’ feel to it with woody base notes, it’s spicy and masculine but also a little citrusy and sweet. Although it smells nothing like it it reminds me of Hugo Boss Bottled purely because it has that same sweet yet musky combination and I also wore that myself more than once. Overall it’s much more interesting than some of SJP’s other fragrances and a total surprise for me.. It smells and looks more expensive than it’s modest rrp and although Lee doesn’t share my love of SJP I think he’ll happily share this with me!
