I bought a small bottle of the new SJP NYC this week to take with me when I popped in to help judge students' fragrance marketing presentations. One of their topics was Coty, so I though it'd be interesting to quiz them about the latest release (none of them knew what it was!). I'm evil like that.
I'm wearing the scent today. Hoo boy. It's strawberry Ribena-alcopop-chewing gum smell that would be at home in a shower gel, lip gloss flavour or possibly shampoo. It'll no doubt be a summer best-seller. *sigh*
Don't get me wrong - it's a 'nice smell'. I guess I'm having a hard time adjusting to the changing smell landscape of modern perfumes; that scents usually reserved for flavours and product perfumes should be bottled and sold as fine fragrance. They sell; people wear them - so why not?
I will probably wear this every now and then throughout the summer, but I think tomorrow I shall apply some kind of perfume-antidote in the form of a Chanel, Guerlain or somesuch.
