Covet Sarah Jessica Parker 2007

What is with the weather in Australia this summer?  While Portia has been exploring a winter wonderland in Europe we’ve experienced heat-waves, flooding, crazy storms and bush fires.  I hope the APJ family has made it through the extreme weather without any major dramas.  The weather in Brisbane this week has been more rain and my backyard is becoming overgrown. Between showers last weekend I got out in the backyard, trudged through the long grass to cut back the overgrown geraniums and prune the lavender.  The damp green smell with lavender and geranium leaves reminded me of Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker.

Fragrantica lists the fragrance notes.
Top:  spicy-green-mint note of geranium leaves, Sicilian lemon, lavender and chocolate notes
Middle:  honeysuckle, magnolia, and lily of the valley
Base: cashmere wood, musk, vetiver, teak wood and amber

When I dare to wear Covet it’s a bit like entering the wilderness of my backyard to prune my geraniums and lavender.   The opening of Covet is energising with some really interesting green notes.  There is loads of lavender that combines nicely with the lemon and chocolate.  The chocolate is not at all sweet and wafts in and out. There are some really lovely floral notes in Covet too. The warm base notes of musk and woods are earthy and long lasting.

Covet is louder, bolder and more sophisticated than Lovely, the original Sarah Jessica Parker fragrance.  However once the initial intense opening of Covet dies down there are a lot of similarities to Lovely with the lavender, lovely floral notes and woody, musk base.

If you like Lovely then you should try Covet for a more intense perfume experience.  But if you prefer sweet fruity celebuscents then you will probably prefer SJP NYC.  See the Sarah Jessica Parker page on my website for more fragrances by SJP.

FrangranceNet has 50ml for $22

Sarah Jessica Parker Covet is a fantastic perfume and its dramatic fragrance commercial is also one of my favourites.  Enjoy!
