After a year and a half of spoling myself with makeup, clothes, shoes and the like, I've finally decided to buck up my ideas and book my driving lessons. Having nice things is still more important to me than driving, but it's something that has to be done! My parents couldn't have been happier when I told them I'd booked the lessons and ended up giving me a basket full of goodies the very next day! I'm not sure if they'd been saving them for when the day came or if they'd ran out and bought them that morning, but I was very excited either way!
One of my favourite things to receive is perfume, and with the knowledge of this, my parents popped a few different bottles inside my basket. One of which was Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker and that will be the product I review today.
The perfume comes in a shiny, gold and green box. I've heard people describe this as luxurious, but I honestly think the box is hideous. The gold pattern on the lime green background makes me a bit nauseous, so I've hidden it behind my other pretty boxes! The box does have a gold and white "plaque" printed on the front, stating that this is in fact Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker. The white print underneath tells us that this is an Eau De Parfum and the bottle contains 50ml. The ingredients are printed on the back of the box.
Once you get past the horrendous lime green cardboard inside the box, you'll find a lovely little bottle of perfume that wouldn't look out of place on anyone's dressing table. The squat little bottle looks pale green in colour, until you realise that it's actually the perfume inside tinting the bottle, whilst the spray nozzle is gold with a brown plastic flower round it. I'd never seen a cap quite like this. You pull the flower off of the nozzle, and instead of it being a full cap, it's simply a flower with a small hole in the middle that sits round the nozzle, making it unable to release any perfume when the flower is on top. Very cute.
The bottle is very simple and simply says "Covet Sarah Jessica Parker" in gold print - just the type of bottle I like. Classy, but not boring.
I honestly didn't know what to expect when smelling it for the first time. I'd never smelled this perfume before and hadn't really heard much about it, my parents also admitted that they bought it for me on the basis that I like Sex and the City, so it was definitely going to be hit or miss! The flower cap did give me a hint that this was going to be floral, but other than that, I was going in blindfolded!
I sprayed a little onto the inside of my wrist and was hit with a very strong floral scent that almost had an undertone of baby powder. I'm not overly keen on floral scents, but this wasn't necessarily bad. It was then that I decided to pull up the notes of the perfume to see if I could actually detect any of them, or if I'd made my own ones up like usual!
Top notes of lavender, dark chocolate, sicilian lemon and pelargonium leaf. Well I never expected any of those. Lavender is my absolute least favourite scent in the world, so for me to like something with lavender in it is a feat in itself! I definitely couldn't detect any dark chocolate (yum!) or lemon either, so I assumed the strong floral scent I was getting straight off the bat was that of the pelargonium leaf. it was then that I noticed that the heart notes were all floral notes, honeysuckle, magnolia and lily of the valley all blend together beautifully to create a light, yet strong floral scent. Again, florals are not my favourite, but there is something about this that I rather like. I still hadn't pin pointed the baby powder scent, but it was getting more and more noticeable as time went on and the floral notes died down a bit. Time to have a peek at the base notes! Amber, musk, cashmere wood, vetiver and teak wood. Well, no baby powder but I can only assume that that comes from the cashmere wood. The musk is subtle and just enough to make this a very sophisticated scent without overpowering the other yummy notes, but I'll be honest and say that I can't detect any of the others.
After around an hour or two, the floral notes have basically all disappeared and I'm just left with a musky, baby powder type scent, which isn't bad, but it's not exactly the scent I tend to go for. I'm definitely more of a fruity person so this isn't a perfume I'd have chosen for myself anyway. The top notes don't really last particularly long and to be perfectly honest with you, I couldn't really detect them at all. The heart notes didn't really last long either, maybe 10-15 minutes tops whilst the base notes stayed strong for maybe two hours before dying down and leaving a very subtle (almost undetectable) soapy scent on my skin.
I'm in two minds about this perfume. It isn't a bad scent, it just isn't my preference. I'd definitely wear it as the base notes are quite nice, but it definitely isn't my go to perfume! It also didn't impress me in longevity stakes, I don't like to have to reapply my perfume during the day and I feel like I'd have to reapply this once or twice per day to actually get a good scent out of it. Not very impressive, Miss SJP.
As I mentioned before, this was a gift so I'm not sure on how much they paid for this bottle. I can't seem to find this perfume in either boots or debenhams, but according to my friend at the perfume shop, they are selling the 50ml bottle for £29.
Overall, I'd recommend this to someone who just wants a light, musky fragrance, but to someone looking for a long lasting perfume, you'd be best staying away from this one. I'll reward it 3 stars because I do like the bottle and the base notes, but everything else was a little disappointing.
Thanks for reading.
I bought this Perfume the other week as Semi Chem are currently doing a 2 for £20 offer on selected Perfumes. I had never tried any Sarah Jessica Parker Perfumes before but I thought why not. The Perfume I was wanting cost £15 on it's own so to get a 50ml Perfume that i've never tried before for £5. So at least that way if I didn't like it then it wasn't a huge amount of money that I spent, and I was sure that I could give it to someone who would probably like it.
I didn't like the box and bottle of this. I think this looks a bit old, and not knowing what age this is meant to appeal to, I would have said looking at this it looks more like an over 40's Perfume. Could this be because Sarah is over 40 and that's the target market? I don't know. The box is a kind of metallic looking odd green colour. It's like a swamp green colour. The lettering on here is in brown, and it just looks oh so boring. It is a large square box. The bottle is like the Dooyoo picture. The glass is thick and clear and you can see the light orange coloured liquid through the glass. The lettering is on the front as well. The most exciting bit of this is the lid which lookd a bit like a flower, but again it looks a bit old and dare I say it garish.
So how does this smell after all that? The blurb about this says "Drawing inspiration from Sarah's love of couture fashion but with a modern twist, Sarah Jessica Parker Covet is a wonderfully inviting perfume perfect for both daytime and evening wear". Sounds alright I suppose, but doesn't give you any idea of the smell of this. When I read the scent of this I found out all what is in here, and I would say that it isn't the kind of notes I would normally go for. This has Lemon, lavender, Geranium leaves, greens, a dash of Chocolate, Musk, Amber and Teakwood. I wouldn't say that this is really a heavier scent but it isn't light either. I would say that this is a Leafy kind of scent, and you can certainly smell the Geranium with lemon mixed it. It was also a kind of Earthy scent. Definitely not the kind of scent I would go for, and I ended up giving this bottle to my gran who likes it, so perhaps it is for older people than myself.
Perhaps worth a try when you are paying such a small amount and at least I can say i've now tried it, but I will not be buying it again as it's just not for me.
I had really been looking forward to trying Sarah Jessica Parker's Covet Eau de Parfum for quite sometime. It has been on the market since 2007, and now that the price has come way down, I thought I'd treat myself to a bottle. This set me back £12.99 for a 50ml bottle from Semi Chem.
The bottle is very pretty and quite classy. It is a nice shade of green almost lime colour, with the Covet logo embossed on the front in gold. It is a short squat bottle, but it is the lid that really impresses me. It looks as if it is made from emerald syle gems, all in a circle around a gold coloured ring, which is placed on the spray nozzle, acting like a lid. Very pretty indeed.
However, I buy a perfume not for the bottle but for the fragrance inside, and this is where I felt somewhat disappointed. That said, on the plus side it is very different, very grown up to boot, to the usual sugary sweet celebrity scents that I'm pretty tired of sampling. It is a very green fragrance, neither overly floral or fruity, but very big on woody, mossy notes, and dare I say this, could even be considered a unisex fragrance.
Covet opens with wet greens, geranium leaves, lemon, lavender and chocolate. I can definitely smell the sharp geranium leaves, and even a slight hint of the lemon and soothing lavender, but unfortunatley the chocolate is totally lost on me. I was expecting it to be a little like Angel by Thierry Mugler, but this is miles away in my opinion.
It dries down to the heart notes pretty quickly, and here you will find delicious honeysuckle and jasmine which give a little wearability to the otherwise overly green sharp fragrance. But at this point it is still very green and masculine.
The base notes are musk, vetiver, teakwood and amber. Covet at full dry down is still a very green scent, but is warmed up with the additon of the warm musk and amber. I think that is why I feel that this is very masculine, possibly unisex, due to many men's fragrances being of the fresh green category.
I must admit that the more I smell this scent the more it grows on me, it's a little like a food, try it once and it is a little strange, try it again and it begins to feel more familiar.
I'm not going to give up wearing this fragrance, I think I'm going to use it as my work perfume and hopefully it will grow on me more, to the point that I may even consider it to be favoured choice for day time.
I don't consider this to be special enough to be an evening fragrance, I think it lacks that 'wow' factor. I do think that it is quite unique, very different to many fragrances in the mass market, and that makes it quite special. I think this would appeal to the more mature and sophisticated woman, but may be a little lost on me.
Another point to note is that it is very long lasting on the skin, I spritzed this a good 4 hours ago and it is still going strong.
Would I recommend this fragrance? Well I'm in two minds, I do think this is not really for me, it is too 'green', I like a more floral fragrance, but if you are a fan of the more woody mossy fragrances then I think this would be ideal for you.
This is my personal opinion, and while it may not be one of my favourites, it may be just the right scent for you. Please do try this out before you make a commitment to buy it.
I found this perfume in Wilkinson 50 ml for only eight pounds! What a bargain! What made me buy this product was the box and it was very pretty with the emerald green with metalics over the box. Beautiful presentation!
But then I opened the box and the perfume bottle was the cutest thing I've ever seen! It is green, with a flower lid! lovely!
The smell is very refreshing and every woman should buy this cause any girl of any age can wear it young or old, it doesn't matter! And yes, you can tell that the smell of the perfume is going to be floral - just by looking at the lid! But I'm a huge fan of fresh, floral fragrances.
Also what I love about this perfume, is that you get compliments on how nice the perfume smells. And so many people kept telling me how nice it smelt! This point proves that I'm going to out buy another bottle, this time a 100 ml as I've seen a 100 ml bottle in Wilkinson for ten pounds, and in Savers 11 pounds for 100 ml! You can get this perfume at some very good prices! For a 30 ml bottle, it would cost you around seven or eight pounds. But if you go to places like Superdrug or Boots it could cost you up to twenty five pounds!
If you want your perfume to last longer don't forget to shimmer yourself in Covet body lotion!
So this is a huge must buy fragrance and it is worth every penny! One squirt and you'll be a covet girl just like Sarah Jessica Parker herself! five out of five starts and that's including everything smell, bottle, price and packaging!
Im annoyed that Ive all of a sudden got my fragrance reviewing head on now after the perfume reviews have been bumped down a tier but oh well I guess now no-one can say I was in it for the points! Anyway I got this "Covet By SJP" a few months ago from my mom on my 19th as she knows how much of a perfume junkie I am and she happy when I then review them as she always gets a treat from the proceeds. Im not a fan of most of the celeb scents but the ones Ive been trying recently have been really nice so I did have high hopes for this scent (and the Lovely SJP I got at the same time) and sadly my hopes were dashed and Im trying to find someone to palm this dirty perfume onto otherwise its going in the bin.
The bottle to this perfume is actually quite nice if you like that sort of thing. I reckon the dsign is aimed much more for older women and although it is cute and feminine I think younger girls/women like myself prefer something brighter and funkier for our perfume collection. I did not like the green colour or this at all as green is not one of my preferred colours but the black flower that is the lid is very cute. Unfortunately it doesnt even fit very well and rather than keep forcing mine on Ive left it off ever since I bought it as its just too much hassle to take off and put on. I reckon older women will love this and it is a nice addition to any perfume collection however the bottle is a little grown up for me and the one young, feminine thing about it - the flower - didnt bloody work!
Now if you thought the bottle was the worst thing about this perfume you would be wrong as it gets so much worse when you smell it. After a peek around the net I found that the main notes in this fragrance are as follows: Wet Greens, Magnolia, Amber, Sicilian Lemon, Chocolate, Lavender & Honeysuckle which to me sounds like the weirdest mixture of scents Ive ever seen. It doesnt smell much nicer either because the range of scents dont compliment each other very well at all. I would say that the two strongest scents are the Lemon & Chocolate which means this smells like sour chocolate which as you can imagine does not smell to great and it is very strong and overpowering to say the least. Now when it starts to fade away it does get slightly better as the amber and the magnolia start to make an appearance and that does smell much better but still not light and feminine like I had hoped. I reckon this smells more masculine and if I wasnt aware of the gender beforehand I would assume this was a mens fragrance. It is very heavy and strong and at times sour and overpowering so I dont recommend you waste your money.
As I personally dont like this perfume I dont think I could say an age range that this would suit best as I think it would be really offensive. If you are going to but it though definately stick to wearing it at night as it is simply too heavy and musky to wear at night. The only nice thing I will say is that this has now been discontinued from stores so I guess a lot of people shared my opinions but it is still available on websites like cheapsmells for less than £10. Dont waste your money though!!

When it comes to scent I'm a bit of a snob if I'm totally honest with you. I'm not one for celebrity endorsed fragrances and prefer Chanel and Prada and the likes however I spotted this actually being sold cheap in a catalogue that I use and as it seemed a bit of a bargain I decided to take a bit of a punt on it thinking that if it really wasn't 'me' that I was sure that I had enough friends and family to palm it off on so it was the risk!
My perfume did come boxed in a very simple looking...well light green box really with all the information on it you would expect to see such as what it is etc. It's plain and the bottle is see-through glass and again your told what it is on the front of it and it has a gold push button sprayer covered by a flower that neatly pulls off and on that is only for decorative purposes really. Nice, simple and elegant looking bottle this is.
Dark gold coloured perfume in the bottle and with this you don't need very much of it at all to get some sexy scent on your skin at all!
The notes of this perfume are rather interesting! Geranium leaves, Sicilian lemon, lavender, and chocolate notes. The heart notes of this fragrance are honeysuckle, magnolia, and lily of the valley and the base notes are cashmere wood, musk and vetiver and combined this makes a very complex perfume...for one that doesn't cost a lot of money!
For me this is a rather deep fragrance. Although it has a zesty top note of lemon along with the geranium I can detect the softer notes of honeysuckle and lily of valley also. It is sweet and has a base note of musk to it though I can't detect a smell of wood or chocolate at all!
As I previously mentioned you don't need to use a lot of this to get the fragrance going and what's more the fragrance does last a good few hours on the skin once applied though as you would expect it to the initial fragrance does die down over time.
For me this is one of my must have fragrances at the moment and what's more my boyfriend really loves this one on me! People comment on it all the time! It's light and airy yet deep and rich and is a bit of chameleon and I would describe this as a romantic and girly perfume without being sweet and candlyflossy. For the price this is available to purchase it in this is simply very sophisticated yet due to it's complexity suitable in my opinion for any age of girl/woman.
Other products are available to use in conjunction with this fragrance such as the shower gel and body lotion (both of which I have since invested in since purchasing the perfume and loving it so much) and this really does get a huge thumbs up from me!
Available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml, the rrp is £23.00 for the 30ml bottle, £29.00 for the 50ml and £39.00 for 100ml in all chemists etc though to look about online as there are serious deals to be snapped up on this one!

COVET -- SARAH JESSICA PARKER
If you are looking to treat yourself or looking for a nice present that wont break the bank, I would recommend the fragrance Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker.
The recommended retail price for a 50ml bottle is £29.00 but can be purchased from halfpriceperfumes.com for just £8.99! (less if you go through a cashback site)
It comes in a lovely little shiny square box which is gold and green, it has the name Covet written on a gold background and the name Sarah Jessica Parker written underneath it. There is a list of ingredients on the back of the box.
The bottle is really pretty. It is made of plain glass and has a gold coloured spray button on the top and the" lid" is in the shape of a flower. It looks like glass or brown topaz but it is plastic. It is made of 8 pieces which look like a flower head. This just pushes on to the spray button to create a sort of lid.
The perfume is a lovely rich golden colour and the fragrance is described as containing geranium leaves, Sicilian lemon, lavender, chocolate, honeysuckle and magnolia. When I first sprayed this perfume the Sicilian lemon was very evident, lovely and fresh, very light. After a while the lemon dulls down and the smell is more sweet and flowery. I could definatly smell the lavender, honeysuckle and magnolia but I could not smell any hint of chocolate.
I think Covet is more of a daytime summery perfume, it is quite long lasting although if you were to put it on in the morning you would need to reapply if you wanted it to go through the evening too.
Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker is a classy little perfume, it comes in a very pretty bottle that would enhance any dressing table. It is also very affordable. It is one I would definatly recommend!
- - - - - - - - - - - -
- - - - - - - - - - - -
On first application COVET is sharp, sour, fresh and energizing as the lemon, lavender and wet leaves mix together. It reminds me of Parker's first fragrance [Lovely] in the feelings it provokes.
I can't separate the sweeter florals or detect the chocolate in Covert's heart, although the fragrance warms up and sweetens considerably. So if you're looking for a floral or gourmand fragrance, don't bother with this.
The base is a dark woody blend, with a hint of musk and the sweetness provided by the amber.
- - - - - - - - - -
- - - - - - - - - -
'Wet greens', geranium leaves, Sicilian lemon, lavender, chocolate, honeysuckle, magnolia, muguet, musk, vetiver, bois de cashmere, teakwood and amber.
- - - - - - - - -
- - - - - - - - -
I like the wide base to the bottle. A lot of my perfume bottles topple over and/or roll away across the floor at the closing of a dresser drawer, but good ole COVET stays put.
However, the cap was useless and just didn't fit securely on the bottle. I tossed mine.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Other buying considerations
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Sarah Jessica is really good at releasing all-rounders: COVET will carry you from morning into evening, all year round.
The staying power is much better then Lovely; Sometime's I'll spray it in the morning and still smell it when I change out of my clothes at the end of the day.
- - - - - - - - - - -
- - - - - - - - - - -
I love that COVET is something different and more edgy then a lot of modern fragrances, and I still wear my bottle on a regular basis. However: I don't think this is something I'd re-buy, but that is me being fickle, not a reflection on the fragrance.
I think - that like Lovely - a man could also wear this.
- - - - -

COVET has been discontinued, so is hard to find on the high street. But most online stores still stock it; The 30ml and 50ml bottles sell for around £10, while the 100ml bottle is about £15.
Every young woman needs a cheap perfume, that they can use on the days which are not so special but still need some perking up! Sarah Jessica Parker's Covet is perfect for this purpose. It is nothing stunning, although the smell actually last longer than I thought it would. Covet is the second perfume from Sarah Jessica Parker, produced shortly after the first Sex and the City Film. It comes in a gorgeous bottle, although the flower on top is made from plastic not glass (but what can you expect for the price!) I managed to pick myself up a bottle for £14, and I am sure it's available for cheaper.
I wouldn't usually buy a celebrity perfume, to be frank most of them don't smell particularly inviting! When an assistant at Debenhams approached me at the bottle, and offered me a smell, I was immediately taken, it was just the light smell that I had been looking for - nothing complex, but pleasant.
It is not the usual smell of fragrance, and it probably won't be as great as a success as her first perfume (although I prefer it). It has green, citrus notes, geranium, Scillian lemons, lavender, honeysuckle, magnolia, lily of the valley and also a hint of chocolate. This may not sound appetising, but the overall effect is a musky, sensual, floral scent - which is actually quite sexy!
This is a mature fragrance, I can't see it being purchased by teenagers, but if you want something a bit different, and a light version reminiscent of fragrances such as the opium - it is a great buy at a great price.
I was given a bottle of this as a present for christmas and because it came from my mum I really wanted to like it and wear it. However- I can't stand the smell of it it is cloying and very artificial. Even when the bottle is closed and on my dressing table i can smell it and it is very unpleasant. I haven't tried sarah jessica parker perfumes before and if this one is anythiung to go by I don't think I will be trying any others in the range.
The packaging is nice, a good quality metalliced box and the bottle and Its top is very heavy. I have offered it to my 3 sisters and my 2 closest friends but none of them have taken it off my hands which surprises me because we all have quite different tastes - I did think one of them would like it.
Sarah Jessica Parker delivers a more musky mature scent. The box is a light shade of green with a golden tint and squared shaped, the bottle is really unique its a roundish square shape and is green, whilst the topper lid is a brown crystal flower.The fragrance includes the following notes geranium leaves,lemon,honeysuckle,chocolate,lavender,amber,musk and teak wood. I would describe the scent has being musky with a twist of oriental through it, its a real mature scent but isn't too old, i think it would be suitable for younger people. A good thing about this is that a bottle can last really long because the shape allows a lot of perfume to be stored and also a couple of sprays last along time,the scent nicely settles and isn't wet when sprayed.Prices range from £10-12 for a 30ml bottle and £15-20 for a 50ml bottle and it can be bought at major retailers such as boots and the perfume shop and online at fragrance net,cheap smells and amazon. Another version of this called bloom can also be purchased. Overall i would describe this scent has a classy mature musky scent.
When i first saw the advert for this perfume i was not interested in owning it or even smelling it. I have the Lovely perfume by Sarah Jessica Parker of which i love, but i thought Covet just appeared unattractive. I received this perfume for Christmas and was quite shocked that i liked it. The bottle itself is interesting. The initial shape of the glass is nicely rounded but allowing a lot of perfume, the shape is also interesting and different and the lid is almost pointless but a rather nice addition. What i had initially disliked about Covet was that it was green, which to me doesn't seem very feminine. However the smell of the perfume is very different to Lovely, a more mature scent. The scent itself which i would not describe as fruity, you can really smell the alcohol in the perfume but with a twinge of something that makes the perfume elegant. As a 21 year old i enjoy wearing this perfume when i have to be somewhere formal alike the office. The scent isn't one for older women, perhaps for the over 30's its more a scent for the younger adult whilst in a more serious environment.
The perfume itself is also a value for money and the box it comes in is beautifully designed.
It took weeks before I really bought this perfume. I knew it from the sales in the department store who gave me the sample, loved it but never thought that it would worth it. But weeks of waiting and I can't get it out of my mind, I decided to buy it.
I bought this perfume online a week ago and it arrived about three days ago and now, I can't go out from home without using this one. The first time I use it, I mean the first spray I thought the fragrance would be too strong, too sweet. But after some hours and when the perfume has blended with the body heat, it smells better. Not only better, but it was great.
I like the fragrance of this eau de parfum. Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker was not only sweet and refreshing but also very feminine. I would recommend this perfume for those who like more florals scent, something sweet and maybe something a little bit girlie and feminine.
I received a box set of Sarah Jessica Parker Covet from my other half last Christmas. The box contained a bottle of perfume, a block of solid perfume and some body lotion.
The perfume itself is a light scent, It's hard to describe, I wouldn't say that it's a flowery smell or even an ultra modern scent - definitely a lighter scent than some perfumes. I personally like it and would use it as more of a day perfume.
I'd never actually heard of solid perfume until I was given this set. Solid perfume comes in a container similar to lip gloss, of course this container does not contain lip gloss it contains solid perfume. Solid perfume is of a hard jelly like consistency, you simply use your finger to apply the perfume to the desired areas. I though that this was the best idea since sliced bread, as this solid perfume is small you can carry it in your handbag and use whenever required! Genius who ever invented it! The packaging for this solid perfume is divine, it's the flower/gem from the bottle lid.
The body lotion received in the gift pack also compliments the scent greatly, improving the strength of the scent.
I would be delighted to receive a set like this for Christmas next year!
I love my family. They try so hard to get amazing presents which we will all love and enjoy. However, try as hard as they do - sometimes they get it wrong, very wrong. I know this isn't a popular view, but I just can't stand Sex and the City. Im a girl, and i try to be one of the girls... but that show just doesn't do anything for me. As much as I could go on, that's for another review! But when I opened this, I donned a big grin but to be honest I wasn't impressed to get the perfume from the women Peter Griffin thinks 'looks like a foot!'
This is the second perfume from Sarah Jessica Parker and I have to admit, it comes in a lovely box. Just under 7cm squared, the box is a lovely green and gold colour. The background looks like goldlinks with lime green in between, similar to snakeskin. All around the box is a raised stripy ribbon pattern, which looks like a gold chain wrapped several times around the box.
On the front, there is a gold plaque style plate with white nails either side. The front says 'Covet - Sarah Jessica Parker' in white, with a full ingredients on the back for those with allergies. The box looks very stylish and unusual, I was impressed and surprised. The size of the perfume is 36m.
The 'lid' is a flower shaped topper around 5cm across with 8 'chip' effect clear brown tinted plastic stones, designed to look like precious stones. Whilst this looks like a lid, when you remove the top it is actually just a circular cover for the pump, leaving a gold style pump with 'SJP' embossed in the top. The neck is slender and marked again with a link chain effect. the bottle itself is like a squashed rectangle (!) which is made from glass and is quite heavy. The perfume is a light yellow, colouring the base.
Overall, an unusual and stylish bottle, but (again, might be controversial) I think it pushes from stylish to actually just looking cheap. I have seen much more simple and delicate bottles which look much classier than this one. Also, it is identical to the last perfume except for the colour, so is not exceptionally original either.
Well, I have to be honest here. My Sex and the City hating mouth was well and truly silenced by the lovely smell of this perfume. Gentle yet lingering, fresh and lasting. Honestly, i love the smell of this perfume.
Im no expert at picking out fragrances, so I looked for a little help online to save me using the whole bottle looking for individual smells! The bulk of the fragrance is geranium leaves, lemon and lavender. These gentle yet lingering scents give the perfume a summery feel and make it seem fresh and clean.
Personally, I would describe the smell as a light musk. Other scents include honeysuckle, magnolia and amber. However, i think the kick which makes me love it is the chocolate! Don't get me wrong, this is no mocha - but the gentle aroma makes you hungry whilst also just giving a kick of the sexy. Very yummy and tasty.
I sometimes find with these perfumes that the aroma doesn't last long. Especially with my favourites such as showtime and darling. However, the musk aspect of this perfumes means that a few sprays will last most of the day, even just as a delicate scent. Honestly, the scent is lovely. Even more so that the perfume of the same name!
Where to buy?
The price of this perfume varies massively depending where you consider buying it. I would be careful being enticed by cheap ebay offers, or the like. Quite often (though not always) these versions are poor fakes, which won't give you a 100th of the smell of the real deal. Currently, you can buy this perfume either online or on the high street for between £20 and £30.
Honestly, I really didn't want to like this perfume. I wanted it to add more fuel to the fire that is my dislike of the whole Sex and the City experience! However, this perfume is delicate and fresh, unlike anything else I have tried recently. Im not a massive fan of the packaging, but the fragrance more than makes up for it. If you fancy a little splash out on yourself, go for it! This is a lovely, coveted gift, even if SJP does look like a foot :)
Covet is the second fragrance from Sarah Jessica Parker, offering a seductive, feminine scent that blends florals, fresh green notes and sensuous woods /
