Celebrity scents are a dime a dozen these days, much to the dismay of master perfumers, but then there are a few that stand out and make us think, wow.
Personally, I’ve found that the older the perfume is (around the time of 2004-2007), are the best fragrances.
(Hilary Duff’s debut scent, With Love, for example, was one of the better ones, but alas – the spicy, woody and milky coconut sophistication did not appeal with the younger ones, and if I recall correctly, it didn’t do so well, which is a shame.)
But another favorite celebrity scent of mine, is Jessica Simpson Fancy perfume – her first, I believe.
As you can imagine, it’s very sweet, but I think even if you are not into sweet scents, this a perfume worth trying. It’s a fruity sweet scent that while sounds like the usual celebrity scent (I think “oriential sweet vanilla” might describe it better, actually) there is such a depth and maturity to it that it could go head to head with Prada Candy… and probably win.
The fragrance starts of with a burst of fruits – pear (one of my favorite notes in perfume), berries and apricot and then into caramel, a mix of gardenia, with a dry down of almond and vanilla.
It is a stunning scent, and it has to be for me to remember it all these years later! It was launched in 2008, and today, it’s fairly hard to find.
For now, if you’re interested, it’s available at Amazon.com and I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a sweet scent that is super affordable, too.
