Lovely was Sarah Jessica Parker’s very first perfume in her fragrance line with Coty Inc. It was created by perfumers Laurent Le Guernec and Clement Gavarry. Lovely is being described as a “silky white amber” and has notes of mandarin, bergmont, rosewood, lavender, apple martini, patchouli, paper whites, orchid, cedar, white amber, musk, and woods.
The inspiration to create Lovely was to layer scents. The top layer includes mandarin, bergmot, rosewood, lavender, and apple martini. This top layer gives off a soft scent that is both citrusy and woodsy. The middle layer includes patchouli, paper whites, and orchids. These middle scents are very subtle and not over powering as many floral scents can be. The bottom layer includes cedar, white amber, musk, and woodsy scents. Ending wraps up Lovely perfume nicely with a soft cedar and musk scent.
The combination of layering these scents leaves an overall blend that combines a subtle innocence with sophistication. Its this combination of scents that makes Lovely good to wear with a casual look or your dressier looks. Its this combination that also makes it appropriate for all ages of women. Its a perfume that will prove to be timeless and ageless because of these very qualities.
Lovely is certainly not overpowering and does not enter the room before the women wearing it, however it does have a tremendous ability to last. The scent stays close to the skin so it can be smelt when it is supposed to and at no other time, which also lends to you not having to reapply. So if you are someone who is looking for a bold scent Lovely is probably not for you.
Overall Lovely is a very impressive scent. One that can be worn for the most casual of situations and the most sophisticated of situations. Its an unobtrusive scent to the people around you , but thats others notice it at the right moments. Its the ultimate feminine perfume that is truly lovely.
