Which one  is your favorite this season?   

Down memory lane with Kate Walsh and her “Boyfriend” eau de parfum.

11 Mar


His scent will seduce you , make you fall in love and

 will help you to remember,

 that passionate affair at the end of which you had to say goodbye,

but a memory of it will last a  life time.

Perfume is a romantic love story in a bottle,

after a spray or two it touches your skin and lingers for hours giving you that butterfly filling like you felt  on your first date ,

a romantic dinner and a night on the town  

or a quite walk in the park where you only exchanged a couple of words but it was the most fun afternoon you both ever had .

Today actress Kate Walsh

 best known for her role in ” Grey’s anatomy ” and ” Private Practice ” and

 now founder / owner of a beauty and lifestyle company Boyfriend LLC,

poured one of her past love stories in the bottle and named it 

” Boyfriend ” eau de parfum.

It was successfully introduced and got us all excited on 11/11/2010 exclusively on HSN ( Home Shopping Network )

and it was officially launched on 02/02/2011 exclusively at Sephora stores.

Story behind the scent

The idea for a fragrance came several years ago , after a break  up ” I thought , I really miss his scent so

I went to fragrance counter and bought men’s fragrance and went wait a minute ,

 you don’t need a boyfriend to have a boyfriend! Ding Ding Ding! ” said Kate Walsh

” All these ideas just would not leave me alone”. 

In the creative process she was inspired by the scent ” of a guy on the girl “. 

Inspired by him but made for her, there is a definite sex appeal in the combining  feminine and masculine scents together.

HSN and Givaudan perfumery with the nose Marypierre Julien helped Kate bring her idea to life

Beautiful , modern packaging and brand image was created by Chad Lavigne 

 Terry Richardson was a photographer for the advertising campaign where

sexy but tasteful shot of nude Kate wrapped in a sheet, inviting us to

 ” Wear Him “


Top – Dark Plum , Myrrh

Heart – Night Blooming Jasmine , Benzoin Tears

Base – Skin Musk , Golden Amber , Vanilla Woods


Idea for the bottle was a classic shape of Chanel bottle but with a modern twist,

Here is a description of the bottle in Kate’s own words

 ” I love the idea of the names on the back, being able to have all the names written down.

And so we came up with that and put that on the back so we could see it.

It’s translucent, and you can see it shadow of all the names.”

Names like Joe, Rob, David, Michael, John, Steven, Kevin, Josh, Pablo, Chad, Neil and Sebastian

” We wanted a collar and I wanted that whole look of luxe but accessible and affordable.  So we did a faux croc skin around.”

Chad Lavigne created clean, classic yet modern beautiful bottle you can proudly add to your collection.

Ratings and Suggestions 

This fragrance rated Love – ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼  

 As I spray it on my skin the ” Boyfriend ” story is completely unveiled and now it’s makes perfect sense.

Not your average girly smell , instead it is

warm and sophisticated fragrance for a strong confident woman

with a seductive and super sexy twist.

At the very beginning the deep scent of Plum mixed with sweet Vanilla

and then after about 10-15 minutes

combination of Jasmine , Amber and Myrrh blooms in to the beautiful, sweet and spicy seductive potion.

Amazing lasting power , about 5+ hours on the skin.

Great warm fragrance for Fall-Winter season , appropriate to wear to a romantic dinner with someone special in your life,

special occasion or 

conservative evening business affair .

In your Fragrance wardrobe this would be a Pant Suit , Evening Gown or a little Black Dress. 

I suggest to wear it on you neck and pulse points , so it will only reveal itself when someone hugs you or shakes your hand.

This fragrance is appropriate for a sophisticated , strong woman,

a sensual seductress with a romantic soul.

Welcome to spring with “Jennifer Aniston” eau de parfum.

3 Mar

It’s spring time and my soul awaits its magic. 

March 3rd and stubborn old winter is about  to expire,

 but with the last snow in the forecast it is still playing hide and seek with colorful and exciting spring.  

Spring time is a time for renewal and rebirth.

In the spring time we seem to feel more inspired, more alive, more in love

and what a perfect time to fall in love with a new perfume.

  Just in time for Spring-Summer fragrance season, Jennifer Aniston debuted her new fragrance in the United States.

It was launched last summer on July 21 2010 at Harrods in London

under the name of 

 ” Lolavie ” which translated from French means  ” Laughing at Life “,

 but at the last-minute was changed to simply

 ” Jennifer Aniston ”  eau de parfum.

Story behind the scent

” I wanted this fragrance to be a personal library of scent memories.

For example, my love of night-blooming Jasmine has lasted a lifetime.

Growing up in california, I distinctly remember the scent of Jasmine on summer evenings.

I consider the scent of the ocean to be one of life’s most uplifting sensual experiences.

No aroma is quite so purifying, humbling and exhilarating.

The combination of the salty air and tropical oils reminds me of long sunny days on the beach – pure happiness. ” – Jennifer Aniston

Falic Fashion Group helped Jennifer bring her idea to live.

This fragrance is supported by campaign created by David Lipman and

was shot in Cabo San Lucas , Mexico by Mario Sorrenti.


Top – Citrus Grove Accord , Rose Water

Heart – Jasmine , Violet , Amazon Lily

Base – Musk , Sandalwood , Amber


Idea for the bottle came from Jennifer’s love for architecture .

It was designed by David Lipman and has

 ” the flow of a Frank Gahry building combined with the fluidity and organic form of a cresting wave.” was explained by its creator.

Ratings and Suggestions

This fragrance rated Like  – ☼ ☼ ☼

As I spray it on my skin it is definitely and unmistakably a floral scent but in the  fresh, lite and airy kind of way.

Not a lot of citrus , well…. maybe at the very beginning and then, mostly sweet scent of Jasmine and some Violet

with  just a touch of powdery Amber at the end.

Lasting power is very mild so my suggestion is to wear it in your hair or clothes.

It will give you just enough of a nice and a pleasant ” Barely There ” scent to wear during a day.

It is wonderful to wear for lunch with your girlfriends , fundraiser or to work.

This fragrance is appropriate and can be enjoyed by ladies of any age.
